Other local schools include St Mary's and St Margarets Calne, Marlborough College, St Francis as well as a good range of state primary and secondary schools.
There are mainline railway stations at Chippenham and Pewsey with trains to London Paddington or from Salisbury and Andover with trains to London Waterloo. The M4 and M3 are both accessible and the larger centres of Bath and Bristol are both nearby.
With the main part of the house dating back to the 17th Century, Willoughbys is a delightful village property with well proportioned rooms throughout. The house is Grade II Listed and is believed to be an important village house with an interesting history. It is purported that Oliver Cromwell slept the night at the house following a local skirmish during the times of
the Great Rebellion.
A flagstone terraced area to the East of the house leads to the front door which opens into the Reception Hall with large inglenook fireplace as well as an attractive parquet floor and the principal staircase.
There is a good sized drawing room which includes a dining area; additionally, there is a further sitting room with wood burning stove and study area. The kitchen/breakfast room is a later addition to the house and has a door out to a South West facing terrace. The kitchen has a range of fitted units as well as an oil fired Aga. In addition there is a utility room with back door as well as a cloakroom on the ground floor. Stairs from the reception hall lead down to a full height cellar with original bee boles.
Upstairs there are four double bedrooms on the first floor and a further two attic bedrooms on the second floor as well as extensive attic space. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and links to bedroom 2 via a Jack and Jill WC. In addition, there is a family bathroom on the first fl oor.
The house has a wealth of period features throughout including timbers and mullioned windows. Willoughbys has been in the same ownership for nearly 40 years.
Adjoining the parking and turning area is an L-shaped range of attractive stone and brick outbuildings. The buildings currently comprise a workshop (previously a tack room), two loose boxes and garaging but have the potential to be converted into a variety of uses, subject to gaining the necessary consents.
The gardens and grounds are a real feature of the house with some attractive mature trees and shrubs. Immediately adjoining the house are some terraces which lead up to a lawn area which is currently used as a grass tennis court. Adjacent to the tennis court is an above ground swimming pool.
A further area of garden includes an orchard with a range of fruit trees, a fruit cage and a greenhouse. To the rear of the garden is a useful pad dock extending to about 1 acre.
