    “Lovely quirky cottage, very comfortable.”

    Lovely enclosed garden for the dog to use (thankfully there's a torch under the sink !) Would definitely recommend.

The property

Purton 1.8 miles.

Perched on the outskirts of Purton, a quaint Wiltshire village resting just a short distance from the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lies this fabulous, Grade II listed, holiday home, 5 Packhorse.

A 400-year old thatched cottage, this charming dwelling boasts characterful exposed walls and interior decor, with an array of well-presented living spaces, as well as good positioning to nearby amenities, making it a perfect choice for a family of four seeking a relaxing, semi-rural escape to the south of England.

After parking up and unpacking, make yourself comfortable in your wonderful new home-from-home, by setting up shop in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where the chosen chef will find everything they'll need to rustle up a tasty, home-cooked meal to be savoured around the dining table.

After you've loaded the dishwasher, retreat to the sitting room to enjoy a film on the Smart TV as you plan the rest of your getaway.

When sleep finally calls, be sure to refresh with a restorative shower before you eventually retire for a well-needed sleep ahead of a brand-new, fun-filled day.

If you can tear yourself away from your lovely new lodgings, head out to explore what the local area has to offer.

Sat on the edge of the Cotswolds, you’ll find other attractions close by such as Cotswold Wildlife Park, with Burford and Bibury also nearby.

A short drive south will bring you into Purton, a village home to two convenience stores where you can stock up on essentials, and the Royal George pub, which serves traditional pub fare perfect for when you fancy a break from cooking one evening.

If you want a day out, a brief car journey east will take you to the town of Swindon, where visitors can roam the scenic greens of Mouldon Hill Country Park, enjoy a picnic at Seven Fields nature reserve, or even spend a day observing wildlife at the Butterfly World & Farm Park.

Make memories in Wiltshire by booking a stay at 5 Packhorse.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

A short drive from the village will bring you to a variety of exciting locations and landmarks, such as Mouldon Hill Country Park and Lydiard Park, the Jubilee Lake nature reserve, and the historic site of Ringsbury. Dining options in Purton include Purton Pizza & Grill takeaway, the Pips Community Cafe, and the Royal George, which serves traditional pub fare, while you can stock up on supplies at either the One Stop or the Co-Op. Within easy reach of the town, the city of Swindon can be located a brief car drive east, which is home to several noteworthy attractions, including the STEAM - Museum of the Great Western Railway, The Museum of Computing, the stunning grounds of Queens Park, the Butterfly World & Farm Park, and the Broome Manor Golf Complex.
