A charming Grade II Listed Cotswold stone cottage with a wonderful garden. Situated on the edge of the village, the property is immaculately presented and hosts a wealth of period features such as deep window sills, beamed ceilings, oak wood flooring and, most notably, an unusual stone lintel above the fireplace. The kitchen is cleverly designed and there is an adjacent utility area. Upstairs there is a wide landing (has previously been used as a study area) and the three bedrooms with views over the fields beyond. The secluded garden has a gravelled south/west facing seating area edged with well stocked herbaceous borders, overlooking the fields beyond and towards the Thames. Castle Eaton is a pleasant village and civil parish on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire borders. It is home to the early reaches of the River Thames and is surrounded by farmland which gives the village a rural feel on the approach yet remains very convenient for access to the arterial roads. The village itself is mentioned in the Doomsday Book and is characterised by older buildings, most of which are in The Street and date from around 1650 to 1850. There is a wonderful village community based around the Village Hall with active clubs and committees. Castle Eaton now benefits from ultrafast fibre broadband (Gigaclear). There is easy access to more extensive facilities in Cirencester - a thriving market town with a range of shops including a Waitrose superstore, Tesco, a hospital and other essential services. Cricklade and Fairford are also within easy reach. There are two golf courses nearby, excellent riding, local shoots, pretty walks and bridleways, fantastic recreation and sporting facilities, including The Cotswold Water Park with its associated water sports. Rural yet accessible, the village is the perfect location for anyone wanting to live in a country village but requiring good access for Swindon and the M4 and M5 motorways. There is a high speed rail service to London Paddington (60 minutes) from Swindon (8 miles). Heathrow Airport is only a 75 minute journey. Both Oxford and Cheltenham are about 30 minutes drive. There are primary schools in nearby Kempsford and Highworth. Farmor's School in Fairford has an excellent reputation.
