The property

Tucked away in the town centre of Malmesbury in Wiltshire is this superb, two-bedroom Grade II listed cottage, Hobbes Cottage, the cottage is believed to be the birth place of the philosopher Thomas Hobbes.

Boasting a fabulous location just outside the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and an interior with a wealth of charm and character, Hobbes Cottage makes a wonderful dwelling for couples or a family of four who are looking to explore Wiltshire.

Be welcomed into the contemporary kitchen, which has all you need to create culinary delights for your loved ones, along with a handy dishwasher and washing machine to keep your space tidy!

Settle down to savour a delicious meal at the dining table for four as you discuss the adventures yet to come.

After a hearty meal, retreat to the sofa where you can curl up and watch your favourite series on the wall-mounted TV.

Climb the stairs to the first floor, where you will find a well-presented twin bedroom, with plenty of storage for your belongings in the large wardrobe.

Discover an additional bedroom on the second floor, a double, which is served by a well-appointed bathroom with a corner bath for leisurely soaks and a shower for refreshing rinses.

Awake from a restful night and head out to the courtyard garden to sip a steaming cup of coffee and watch the world go by.

Explore your local surroundings, where you will find a hub of activity, including the remarkable 12th-century Malmesbury Abbey still with its original bullet marks from the English Civil War, the picturesque St. Aldhelm Mead park which rests along the River Avon making for a great picnic spot and a plethora of pubs and restaurants, so you will be never short of places to dine on the evenings where you don’t feel like cooking, the oldest hotel in England ‘The Old Bell’ is a 5 minute walk from the cottage.

Venture into the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you will find stunning walking trails on offer through Westobirt, The National Arboretum and the esteemed Highgrove Gardens where you can enjoy guided tours and delights at the on-site tearoom.

Be sure to check out the impressive National Trust site of Newark Park, a 16th-century lodge settled on a 725-acre estate, with exhibitions and peaceful country walks available.

Chippenham 11 miles; Cirencester 13 miles; Bath 23 miles; Tetbury 5 miles.

Dating back to the Iron Age and reputedly the oldest borough in England, the pretty market town of Malmesbury is located on a hilltop in the southern Cotswolds. Malmesbury is steeped in history and offers visitors over 400 listed buildings, a 15th century Market Cross, a ruined 7th century Benedictine abbey, an annual carnival and many independent shops, cafes and traditional pubs. Abbey House Gardens, home to 'The Naked Gardeners' can also be found in Malmesbury (Note: The gardeners are clothed during normal opening hours) and the annual Womad Music Festival is close by at Charlton Park. The area offers many country houses, including Rodmarton Manor and Gardens, and Chavenage House, a fine example of a Cotswold manor unchanged for 400 years. Just a short drive away is The Cotswold Water Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles and offering a wide range of activities, including boating, waterskiing, fishing, cycling, golf and horse riding, plus Bath, Cirencester and Tetbury are all within easy reach and well worth a visit.
