Cress Cottage is a wonderful Grade II listed thatched cottage believed to date back to the 1720's and is built of limestone under a thatched roof. The current owners have completely restored and modernized the cottage and annexe barn creating a wonderful home which is presented to the highest standard but importantly retains all its period features. This includes underfloor heating on the ground floor, a new bespoke Homer kitchen and new bathrooms. A slight reconfiguration has made much better use of the space.

The ground floor is particularly light with all the rooms being dual aspect. The sitting/dining room has engineered oak floors, exposed beams and a large inglenook fireplace with bread oven and new wood burner. The kitchen has a good range of bespoke painted wood cupboards with slate work tops and twisted oak handles.

There is also a blue electric aga and an electric hob. A small snug overlooks the gardens and opens out onto the terrace. There is an excellent utility room with cupboards matching those in the kitchen and a cloakroom.

On the first floor are three bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room and a family bathroom.

The annexe has also been completely rebuilt from scratch creating wonderful secondary accommodation. A spacious open plan kitchen/ dining/sitting room overlooks the gardens whilst

there are two double bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor.

Cress Cottage is set in a lovely and peaceful position overlooking the village pond which was created from the former cress beds and which gave their name to the cottage. The village pond forms the centre piece of this delightful small Wylye Valley village which is almost entirely formed of period houses and cottages. Within Sherrington is a 17th century church. The larger village of Codford is nearby and provides local amenities including a doctor's surgery, Budgens mini supermarket, post office, garage, vet and small theatre. Within close proximity are many gastro pubs such as The Dove at Codford. The market town of Warminster offers further everyday facilities including a Waitrose and has a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo (approximately 120 minutes) and Bath (25 minutes). There are further direct line stations to London Waterloo from Tisbury (from 95 minutes) and Salisbury (from 90 minutes). Westbury is also 15 miles away which has a direct line to London Paddington (from 78 minutes). Salisbury lies to the south east and offers a wider range of cultural,

educational and shopping facilities. The A303 is nearby and offers excellent links to the West Country and London via the M3.

Sherrington is set within the rolling hills of the Wylye Valley and is in a Conservation Area and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with superb walks from the door. There is fishing and shooting in the Wylye Valley with sailing nearby at Shearwater. The area is also very popular because of the excellent selection of schools at all levels. There are popular primary schools in the local villages and Salisbury has retained its grammar schools. There are also numerous public schools in the area.

A gravel drive leads to the side of the cottage where there is parking for several cars. The gardens have been cleverly and professionally landscaped creating several separate havens. To the rear of the house it is mostly laid to lawn with well stocked flower beds creating the perfect cottage garden. Adjacent to the rear of the house is a terrace whilst adjoining the annexe is another

terrace. To the side of the house is a large and established vegetable garden with raised beds and a fruit cage. There are several apple trees. To the front of the house is a further small terrace with which to enjoy the view over the village pond. Attached to the annexe is a single car port, a shed and log store.
