Property Summary

A most attractive & charming period cottage with a separate annexe/studio situated in a tucked away setting in a popular village in the heart of the beautiful Nadder Valley.


A small but pretty Chilmark stone built attached cottage with a clay tiled roof and is thought to date back to the 1840’s. The property has seen many alterations and improvements over the years but still retains its intrinsic period charm and character making this a really delightful home in a pleasant village setting and together with its separate annexe/studio, is one that is ideal for use either as a full time residence or weekend retreat.

The accommodation on the ground floor includes a lovely sitting room with a wood burning stove and leads to a dining area which in turn is open plan to the attractively fitted kitchen with its range of eye and base level cupboards and drawers and terracotta tiled floor. There is also an entrance lobby and cloakroom on this level whilst upstairs are two bedrooms, an attractively fitted family bathroom and a study that could be used as an occasional third bedroom.


The pretty gardens are arranged in two sections with a delightful southerly facing cottage garden immediately in front of the property with lawn, a stone paved patio and a variety of flowers and shrubs. Across the lane is an area of off-street parking, two wooden sheds and gates giving access to an enclosed area of further garden which includes additional parking, flower and shrub borders, raised beds and a potting shed.

In the second garden is a separate Annexe/Studio which has its own kitchen facilities and a shower/cloakroom so that it can be utilised in a variety of ways such as a guest suite, work facility or simply as an extension to the living space for the main cottage.


The property is pleasantly situated in a small lane not far from Tisbury’s bustling High Street and village centre. Tisbury is the principal village of the beautiful Nadder Valley and according to The Sunday Times, is one of the best places to live in the country. It has a fine reputation for the quality of its independent shops, boutiques and eateries with amenities including a sports/community centre, doctors and dental surgeries, garage, vets, primary school and a station with direct rail services to London (Waterloo). It is also the home of Messums Wiltshire, a contemporary arts centre housed in an ancient thatched tithe barn.

The Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury (9 miles) has a good range of shops, a supermarket, restaurants, a secondary school, cottage hospital and is famous for the picturesque, steeply cobbled street of Gold Hill. The medieval cathedral city of Salisbury (13 miles) has more comprehensive shopping, arts & leisure facilities and a district hospital. The area’s other principal towns including Bath, Blandford, Sherborne and Warminster are all linked via the local road network as is the South Coast whilst the West Country, London and the motorway network are accessible by the A303/M3. Many families are drawn to South Wiltshire by the choice and quality of the area’s state and private schools.

Set amidst the famously attractive undulating countryside of the Nadder Valley, part of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Tisbury is an excellent base from which to explore the many miles of local footpaths and bridleways and there are a variety of rural pursuits available including walking, riding, cycling and field sports. 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, Wilton House and the Fovant Badges.
