Vine Cottage, which was the village shop in an earlier incarnation, is situated within the Conservation Area of Fovant which is an attractive village situated in the popular Nadder Valley. The village has a shop/post office, doctor's surgery, garage and newly re-furbished pub, which are all within walking distance of the property. For more comprehensive facilities the towns of Tisbury, Salisbury and Shaftesbury are all within easy reach.

There are mainline stations to London Waterloo from both Tisbury and Salisbury and the A303 is conveniently situated to the north providing access to the West Country and London via the M3.

There are a number of excellent state and private schools in the area including Port Regis, Godolphin, Chafyn Grove, Sandroyd, St Marys Shaftesbury, Bishops Wordsworth Grammar and South and West Wilts.

Racing at Salisbury, Wincanton and Newbury. Golf at Rushmore and South West Wilts. Watersports along the South Coast.


Vine Cottage, built of green sand stone under a clay tile roof, is a spacious property providing generous and flexible accommodation.

The house underwent a lengthy architect-designed renovation and rebuild, completed in 2013, to create a stunning contemporary home retaining its essential character. The original oak beams are all in place, juxtaposed with steel beams on the upper floor.

The sitting room/dining room has a large inglenook fireplace with a working wood burner at one end. The hallway leads to an elegant Japanese-designed, hand-built kitchen with walk-in larder, and the breakfast room glass doors lead out to a granite patio. There is zoned under floor heating throughout the ground floor.

The first floor enjoys an open, light landing area off which are two double bedrooms (one en-suite), both with capacious fitted wardrobes, and a further dressing room (potentially another bedroom), leads to a large bath/shower room. On the second floor are a further three bedrooms and an en suite shower room.

All the bath/shower rooms are sleek, modern and tiled throughout.

To the side of the house there is a gravelled parking area. The gardens gently slope upwards in a series of woodland terraces, with access to farmland and walks beyond. There is a large two storey workshop with a sunny, secluded stone terrace, lovely views, power, water, and showerroom.

Square Footage: 3,812 sq ft


Leave Salisbury on the A36 heading towards Wilton and in Wilton take the left hand turning onto the A30 towards Shaftesbury. Follow this road until reaching Fovant. At the newly re-furbished pub turn right into the village high street, pass Fovant stores and the Doctors' surgery on your right, and Vine Cottage can be found after a short distance on the right hand side.
