Garsdon is found on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border and is approximately 2.5 miles from the historic and vibrant market town of Malmesbury, which has an excellent range of everyday facilities and amenities as well as a very highly regarded secondary school and a beautiful Abbey. Garsdon itself is part of Lea and Cleverton parish and has an Anglican church, All Saints. Garsdon Manor dates back the 14th century and is Grade II* listed. During the 17th century it was owned by the ancestors of George Washington. Nearby Lea & Garsdon CE Primary School has a very good reputation and in Lea there is a village hall and public house, The Rose & Crown. Further comprehensive facilities can be found in the larger town of Cirencester, which also supports two superstores (Waitrose and Tesco), a leisure centre, hospital and many other essential services.

Communications are first class with the property being within daily travelling distance of the commercial centres of Swindon, Chippenham, Bath and Bristol. There is a fast and regular train service to London Paddington from both Kemble and Swindon stations plus there is easy access to J16 and J17 of the M4.

Recreational and sporting facilities in the area include golf at Oaksey, South Cerney and Cirencester, associated water sports at the Cotswold Water Park, polo at Cirencester Park and hunting with the VWH and the Duke of Beaufort's hounds. Horse racing at Cheltenham, Bath and Newbury. Theatres and wider shopping facilities at Oxford, Cheltenham and Bath.


Beautifully situated in a quiet elevated position set back from the village lane, Hill Cottage is a very attractive stone built cottage offering the opportunity for someone to update and modernise the house to suit their own taste. The approach to the property is very pretty with a gravel driveway offering plenty of parking and surrounded by very well tended gardens, including a wonderful selection of mature flowers and plants, specimen trees providing plenty of privacy, a terrace just off the kitchen plus rose and vegetable gardens. The accommodation is full of charm and character features and includes an entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor, a sitting room with lovely open fireplace and a window overlooking the front gardens, separate dining room and a very good sized kitchen/breakfast room to the rear of the property. At first floor level are two good sized double bedrooms, one of which has a single shower cubicle and built in cupboard plus there is a further single bedroom and bathroom.
