Leave Salisbury on the A354 Coombe Bissett Road and after approximately four miles turn right signposted to Bishopstone and Broad Chalke. After another two miles, and opposite the turning to the racecourse, turn left to Stratford Tony. Continue to the end of this lane and the property will be seen on the right hand side.
The original part of Cawden Cottage is believed to date back to the 17th Century but over the years it has been substantially extended and altered. Built of brick elevations beneath a pitched clay tiled roof, the cottage is set in large, natural gardens with ample parking and garaging. There is a large, self-contained annexe to the first floor, oil-fired central heating and double glazing. There are wonderful views over fields to rear and River Ebble to side. The accommodation is highly flexible and the self-contained annexe could easily be incorporated into the main house whilst there is still further potential for improvements and alteration. The garden is partly walled, there is a large vegetable area with raised beds, lawns, flowerbeds and shrubs.
The cottage is situated in a quiet hamlet in the heart of the Chalke Valley with open fields to one side. It is set in a no-through road within a short walk of the Church. Nearby shopping facilities are available in Coombe Bissett whilst Salisbury is about eight miles away with its excellent facilities, mainline railway station and grammar schools. The Chalke Valley has excellent facilities including fishing on the Rivers Ebble, Nadder and Wylye, horse racing at nearby Salisbury Racecourse and golf courses at South Wilts, Hamptworth and High Post.
