Salisbury Journal:

Constructed in the traditional style of white painted cob and thatch, the cottage has been extended and refurbished by the current owners to include a triple-aspect kitchen/breakfast room, with French doors out onto a terrace, overlooking the River Till.

The kitchen features shaker-style cupboards, granite worktops, an electric Aga and integrated appliances.

The original part of the house includes a dual-aspect sitting room and an inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove.

The particular appeal of this property, aside from its appearance and secluded nature, is the beautiful, tranquil setting and the abundance of nearby wildlife, including kingfishers, herons, egrets, swans, moor hens, mallards and barn owls.

Matt Orchard, property agent for Savills in Salisbury, said: “I can’t think of a more idyllic setting that I have seen recently. The riverside gardens at Till Cottage are an absolute delight.”

Winterbourne Stoke has a church with 12th century origins, a pub, a petrol station with small shop and a children’s playground. Nearby Shrewton has a school, shop, post office and medical centre.
