Situation

Derry Hill has grown out of the ancient settlement of Studley which dates back to Roman Times. In the 18th century, there were several small settlements which were originally built to provide houses for the Bowood Estate workers. This property in a fine example of one of those properties. Today the village offers residents a fantastic setting to call home which includes; the Bowood Estate set in hundreds of acres, a beautiful village church, highly respected primary school, village shop with post office, local Inns and village hall to mention just a few. Excellently positioned for commuters, Chippenhams' train station & motorway junction 17 are within approximately 7 miles, and the larger centres of Swindon, historical City of Bath and Bristol are also within easy commute.
