THE PROPERTY AND IT'S HISTORY 
The Old Rectory was constructed in 1866 of pennant stone coursed rubble with ashlar dressed elevations beneath steep slate roofs with coped gables and prominent ashlar chimney stacks. It is Victorian Gothic in architectural style with ecclesiastical features one would expect of a property of this standing; crowned by the carved stone angel perched on the roof being the guardian of the building. A carved Latin motto on the south elevation of the house translates as “He who listens learns most”. Retained period detailing includes arched stone door cases, open fireplaces and of note is the vast reception hall with mosaic tile flooring, three armorial stained glass windows, and the original yew staircase. The original bell with bell rope remains within the centre of the house. The ground floor offers grand proportions with high ceilings and the principal rooms all overlook the delightful gardens.The drawing room has a double aspect with large

. 
sash windows and retains the John Broadwood and Sons walnut grand piano believed to have arrived at the house when it was built. It has a polished wood floor, an open fire and ceiling coving. A fine dining room has large sash windows and an open fireplace. The Kitchen/Breakfast room has been opened into one room with fitted units and eating area leading into a recently added oak frame conservatory with double doors leading onto the lawn. The sitting room, next to the kitchen, has a large welsh dresser and wood burning stove and leads to inner hall with access to the side entrance and also the dining room, study and a ground floor en suite bedroom. At the rear of the house is a large utility room and a boiler room with shower and WC. The first floor provides numerous spacious bedrooms, the majority having en suite facilities, while those without have access to two large family bathrooms.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES 
The property is currently arranged and run as a very highly successfully four star bed and breakfast with accounts available on request. The B&B has six large bedrooms; two with four poster beds, three doubles and one twin bedded room. At one end of the house is a one bedroom fully fitted annexe with letting potential. In 2010, the present owners built two self-catering holiday cottages both with two bedrooms that run at 90% yearly occupancy and these have separate accounts to be viewed.

SITUATION 
The Old Rectory is discreetly set in its own grounds at the entrance to the picturesque and famous village of Lacock, which was mentioned in the Domesday Book. Lacock dates from the 13th century and has been beautifully preserved and unchanged since it was a thriving township that traded in wool. With its picturesque streets and historic buildings the village has recently become a popular TV and film location. There are various shops, a primary school, arts and crafts, antiques centre and pubs in the village for day to day needs, while a more comprehensive range of amenities are available in Chippenham, approx 4 miles north. These include various schools, a leisure centre and comprehensive shopping along with a mainline rail service to London Paddington (journey time approx 75 minutes) and Bath Spa station (journey time approx 15 minutes).
