    About Devizes
    image cannot be displayed

    Devizes is a charming historic market town that lies in the very heart of Wiltshire.

    You can enjoy exploring the town's range of charming independent shops which can be found along the main Brittox and down our hidden quirky alleys, or stroll around the weekly collectors and farmers markets taking place in the old market place.

    Take the time to discover the surrounding villages and countryside as we enjoy some of the most picturesque and unspoiled views our county has to offer.

    The Kennet and Avon Canal is easily accessible as it flows through the town centre. Join the canal path and follow it as it meanders through the countryside to many of our villages and enjoy one of the many canal side pubs on the way. Why not take on the famous Caen hill locks leading up to Devizes and treat yourself to a Cream tea at the delightful tea rooms at the top (you will deserve it!)

    The town also still enjoys the regular clomping of the horse and dray delivering to the local pubs and hotels

    Devizes really is a special town in which to live.

      I am writing to express how impressed I have been

      I am writing to express how impressed I have been at the professionalism of Hunter French in the selling of my home, The Farthings. Organisations are made up of people and all of your people have been genuine ambassadors.

      You have been true to your word in accompanying us along the journey that has included marketing through to sales and completion. At each step of the way you have been there to respond to questions, provide assurance and offer advice- your communication has been first class.

      Its extremely refreshing to come across an Organisation that exemplifies tremendous customer service along with strong ethical and moral values. At all times I was comforted to know that you were selling a home and not just a house- thank you for that. All in all you have ensured that that a significant event has been made as painless as possible.

      I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Hunter French as the only estate agent to use.

      All were well informed and  warm and helpful.
      Hunter French handled the whole process of our house sale with utmost professionalism and support. The staff were well informed, communicated well and were warm and helpful. That's not to mention the house valuation-we obtained several quotes and Hunter French's was by far the highest, yet they demonstrated that they could achieve this using recent case studies of comparable properties. Sure enough, within two weeks, we were offered the full asking price by two different parties, despite other leading agents saying we would not achieve anywhere near that amount. We are delighted with the service we received from Hunter French and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
