About our home

Our charming cottage was built in 1850 as a dairy. It was then converted to a chapel before becoming a lovely family home in 1980. Cowcroft Cottage has a wealth of original features. Outside is a patio and good sized garden and parking for 3cars.
Situated in the hamlet of West Stowell in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (lovely for walking and riding)our home provides an excellent base from which to explore the South of England. Popular places to visit such as Stonehenge, Bath and Castle Coombe are all within I hours drive.
The train station is 5 minutes drive away with direct trains to London (1 hour 10mins)
