The neighbourhood

The cottage lies in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is a paradise for walkers, horse-riders and mountain bikers, with terrain including high chalk ridges, fields, ancient heathland and woodlands. St Mary Bourne offers the perfect balance of seclusion with village amenities on the doorstep, it has a welcoming atmosphere, a small shop, a café and two pubs, The George Inn and Bourne Valley Inn, along with a beautiful 12th century church. All are within a 10-minute walk along level footpaths.

If you like getting dressed up for the races, Newbury Racecourse is about a 30-minute drive away from the cottage and races are held throughout the summer. In the same direction, there’s Highclere Castle, the historic home of Lord and Lady Carnarvon. Made famous for being the location of the hugely popular television series ‘Downton Abbey’, it is open to look around the Capability Brown-designed gardens and for tours of the house that include the Egyptian Exhibition that celebrates the part that the 5th Earl of Carnarvon played in discovering the tomb of Tutankhamun.
