Property Summary

A detached early 18th Century Listed cottage situated in a village setting in the beautiful Nadder Valley with plenty of period charm & offering a refurbishment opportunity.


The property is a most attractive historic Grade II Listed detached Chilmark stone cottage with stone mullioned windows and a Flemish bond brick façade to the front thought to date from the early 18th Century. The property was extended at the rear in the 20th Century. Internally the cottage has good ceiling heights and traditional character features. Now requiring some updating, this presents the ideal opportunity for someone looking for a charming period home situated in a popular rural village with convenient access to Salisbury and the beautiful countryside of the Nadder Valley.

The versatile accommodation on the ground floor comprises a cosy sitting room with oak flooring and an inglenook corner fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen with an adjoining breakfast room and a cloak/utility room. Upstairs are three bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a dressing room and a family bathroom.


To the front is small, enclosed Southwest facing garden with a stone paved patio, steps up to a lawn with flower and shrub borders, a small pond and ornamental trees. A side access leads past an open fronted brick-built store to the rear garden which has an area of lawn, paved & gravelled areas, wood store, a wooden garden store/workshop and steps up a steep bank to a further area of garden in need of landscaping which enjoys commanding views over the village to the countryside beyond. There is an area of off-street parking and a wooden shed.


The cottage is located in the heart of the popular rural village of Barford St Martin off a no-through lane that leads to an extensive network of ox droves, bridleways and footpaths and on to Grovely Wood, one of  the largest areas of ancient woodland in South Wiltshire and which is situated on a ridge separating the Nadder and Wylye Valleys. The property is found just beyond a 16th century coaching inn, The Barford Inn and the village also has a parish church, 11th Century preaching cross, nursery school and a filling station with a mini supermarket. Wilton, the ancient capital of Wessex and famous for the stately home and gardens of Wilton House, is only three miles away and provides shopping for most everyday needs. The medieval cathedral city of Salisbury is just beyond and offers more comprehensive shopping, leisure and cultural facilities as well as a district hospital and a station with direct rail services to London (Waterloo).

The region’s other principal towns including Bath, Blandford, Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Warminster are all accessible via the local road network as is the South Coast, the West Country and the motorway network. Many families are drawn to South Wiltshire by the excellent choice of state and private schools situated in both Salisbury and the surrounding area. There are regional airports at Bournemouth, Bristol and Southampton.

Set amidst the particularly attractive undulating countryside of the Nadder Valley, part of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Barford St Martin is an excellent base from which to enjoy a huge variety of rural pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and field sports. The Rivers Nadder & Wyle are both famous for their excellent fishing, sailing can be found at Shearwater near Warminster, racing is at Salisbury, Bath and Wincanton and golf at Tollard Royal, Warminster and Salisbury. There are several excellent dining pubs in the vicinity as well as many places of interest such as the Longleat Estate, Old Wardour Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Fovant Badges and Stonehenge.
