Stations at Grateley 15 miles (Waterloo 80 minutes) and Pewsey 7 miles (Paddington 70 minutes). The A303/M3 6 miles provides good road access to east and west. The area is renowned for its fishing on the River Avon and surrounding Salisbury Plain offers many other outdoor activities. Coombe Cottage lies on the western side of the main street.
This attractive unspoilt Grade II listed village house is believed to date from the 17th Century with later additions and is of timber frame and brick and flint construction under a pitched thatched roof with a block and tiled garage block attached to one side. The thatch has been regularly maintained over the years, the rear pitch being re-thatched in 2010. The accommodation is in need of modernisation but has been lived in until recently, having central heating fired by a new oil Grant boiler. There are many period features including beamed walls and ceilings, some leaded light windows, some windows with shutters and window seats, tiled floors and an inglenook fireplace. Subject to the relevant consents the house would lend itself to a possible further extension.

The gardens, extending to approx 0.2 of an acre, lie to the south and west of the house and are bordered by walling giving a private feel. There are a number of mature trees and former planted beds which could be revived. To one side is the double garage block which gives access to the rear with a brick path leading to the back door.
