Breakpools is situated towards the edge of the village and comprises a very attractive Grade II Listed house which dates originally from the 17th century. Built in the vernacular style of Cotswold stone with casement windows, the house has great charm and character. Internally, the accommodation is well-proportioned and the rooms are a much better size than you might expect for a property of this age and style. The drawing room in particular is an impressive 26 feet in length. Like the adjoining sitting room, this has a beamed ceiling and fireplace, as well as a door onto the garden. The kitchen overlooks the garden and is fitted with a range of wall and floor units. As currently arranged, there is a ground floor bedroom with bathroom en suite. On the first floor is a master bedroom suite and four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Marston Meysey is a pretty village which lies in open countryside close to the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border. The village has a church, village hall, and a popular pub, The Old Spotted Cow. The local towns of Fairford and Cricklade provide a good range of everyday shops and services, with a wider choice at the ancient Roman town of Cirencester.

The main regional centres include Cheltenham, Oxford, Swindon, Bath and Bristol, all of which are within daily commuting distance. Good communications being about 2 miles from the A419 for dual carriageway access to Junction 15 of the M4 at Swindon. Swindon station has frequent direct rail services to London Paddington taking from 55 minutes.

There is an excellent choice of private and state schools in the area. Of the latter, Farmor's School in Fairford is particularly wellregarded. Private schools include Pinewood, St Hugh's, Hatherop Castle, Beaudesert and Prior Park.

Ample sporting opportunities in the area, including a number of golf courses, water sports at the Cotswold Water Park, and racing at Cheltenham and Newbury.

Breakpools is approached down a gravelled driveway to the north of the house leading to parking and turning area. Adjoining this are two garages. The gardens and grounds are one of the property's greatest attributes. Lying to the south and west of the house, they provide a wonderful outlook and a great degree of privacy and seclusion. There is a gravelled terrace along the west side of the house, beyond which is a flat lawn with mixed borders. To the side of this is a timber stable block with two loose boxes, a greenhouse and vegetable garden. Beyond are areas of wild garden with a mix of mature trees and shrubs.
There is a large pond with water lilies and a stream forms the western boundary
