Located within the wonderfully quiet Wiltshire hamlet of Ablington, Cherry Tree Cottage is a pretty Grade II Listed semi-rural village dwelling which has been extended, restored and maintained to a high standard and has retained many characterful features. The original cottage is believed to date from the mid 16th century with a more recent (1996) two-storey addition.

The accommodation is not at all small, in fact given the style of the property, all of the rooms are spacious with surprisingly high ceilings. On the ground floor there is a generous double aspect dining room with a flagstone floor, spacious hallways, a comfortable double aspect sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace, charming ‘cottage' kitchen with a small inglenook and bread oven, a large well fitted utility room and a ground floor cloakroom.

The first floor has a galleried-style landing off which is a remodelled family bathroom, a fine master suite with bespoke fitted wardrobes and ensuite shower room, an excellent second/guest bedroom and a large single bedroom; all the first floor rooms, including the landing, have vaulted ceilings with exposed heavy beams and timbers.

Cherry Tree Cottage is surrounded on three sides by a lovely private cottage garden with areas of lawn, flower beds, shrubs and seating areas. There is a gravelled drive with parking for approximately six vehicles in addition to which is a detached garage/workshop which was also constructed in 1996.

The ancient rural settlement of Ablington, recorded in the Domesday Book, is located approximately 3.5 miles north of Amesbury, close to the village of Figheldean on the River Avon. The hamlet has a hugely popular outdoor childrens nursery and has access to numerous country walks.
