Downs View

A well-presented detached bungalow situated in the hamlet of Norton Ferris, Wiltshire, close to the borders of both Dorset and Somerset. This charming bungalow sits next door to the owner's farmhouse and barns and is ideal for friends and families looking to discover this delightful area. Inside, there is a well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast area and in the large, comfortable sitting room, which seats eight, there is a cosy electric fire. There is also a lovely dining area in the conservatory where you can enjoy home-cooked meals whilst overlooking the garden to the Wiltshire Downs beyond. Four comfortable bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, a family bathroom and a family shower room, together with a separate basin and WC, complete the accommodation at this lovely cottage. The conservatory doors open out onto the enclosed garden, a perfect place to enjoy a drink whilst you plan your day's adventures. Locally, you can take a gentle stroll along the nearby rural footpaths, take the easy drive to the National Trust's magnificent house and award-winning gardens at Stourhead, or visit Longleat House and Safari Park.
