Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Holborn Farmhouse is an enchanting thatched cottage situated in an idyllic quintessentially English picturesque village. The entrance hall leads to the charming main sitting room, which features a beautiful inglenook fireplace, which in turn leads to the study which houses one of the staircases to the first floor. Turning left from the entrance hall is the characterful dining room off which is the useful utility room. A further inner hallway leads to the welcoming country-style kitchen/breakfast room which has a good range of wooden units and with ample room for dining. A separate WC completes the downstairs accommodation.

The staircase leading up from the study gives access to the smallest of three bedrooms, and also the master bedroom which has built-in cupboards and a dressing room. This in turn leads through to the second bedroom, again with wardrobes and the bathroom, plus the second staircase which descends into the dining room.

There is an abundance of character throughout the cottage. It is simply an inviting haven from the hustle and bustle.


Letcombe Bassett is a thriving hamlet of several properties, a short distance from the pretty rural village of Letcombe Regis in the Vale of the White Horse. The village is on Letcombe Brook at the foot of the Berkshire Downs escarpment about 1 mile southwest of the market town of Wantage. There is a small shop in Letcombe Regis with cafe, a tennis club, and the local public house has recently been stylishly refurbished. Additionally, there are spa facilities at the local retirement village. More extensive amenities. Main line rail links can be found from Didcot (11 miles) to London (45 minutes), Wales and The South West and further south in Newbury (17 miles), or Oxford being 19 miles to the north-east.


Holborn Farmhouse is set back from the lane via a lawned area and quiet gravelled lane. It is approached via a wooden gate with path leading to the front door. To the front is a well stocked and mature cottage garden, providing colour for many months with its various herbaceaous plants. A path wraps around the house to the rear garden which is extremely pretty, having been landscaped and terraced, thereby providing interest not only in terms of variety and colour of plants, with the various levels including an elevated dining/barbecue area with brick retaining wall, from which the riot of colour which the garden has in abundance can be enjoyed. In addition to the extensive variety of flowers and shrubs, there is a working kitchen garden and also a water feature which trickles through rockery adjacent to the dining area. This is simply a stunning garden which can only appreciated once standing in the garden to admire!
