The Property
A truly beautiful example of a Grade 11 traditional detached thatched cottage. Built in 1749 this property is stunning both inside and out! The property has been refurbished internally sympathetically and to a very high specification whilst enhancing many of the original features. The property has oil fired central heating.

The Thatch roof on the cottage was replaced only three years ago. The property sits in an idyllic picket fenced cottage style garden and unlike many of the other thatched cottages in the surrounding area is situated away from any main roads and set off a quiet country lane, with far reaching country views.

Wans Cottage is in the hamlet of Sandy Lane which is situated between the Bowood Estate and Spye Park Estate. The hamlet is only three miles from Chippenham which has a mainline rail link to London which is currently 1 hour 20 mins. The current travel time will be reduced by the end of the year due to the line being electrified.

The National Trust village of Lacock is the next village which has shops, pubs, church and village school along with the Abbey.
