A traditional courtyard development of five cottages, on the southern edge of the Cotswolds.
These Cotswold stone cottages, expertly converted from original farm buildings, are situated on a 370 acre working dairy farm. There is a variety of other animals (geese, sheep, pigs, hens, horse and pony) to interest children, who can be shown round the farm, and an abundance of wildlife. There are walks across the farm which includes bluebell woodland and a stretch of the River Avon. The cottages overlook the beautiful Avon Valley with magnificent, south facing views over rolling grassland, the Wiltshire Avon and beyond to the distant Marlborough Downs.
Maunditts Park Farm is on the edge of the Cotswolds and is only 8 miles from the M4 motorway giving easy access to London, only 1 1/2 hour's drive, Bath, 45 minutes, Oxford, approx. 1 hour and Stratford-upon-Avon, 1 1/2 hours. There are many historical, architectural and archaeological sites and places of outstanding beauty to visit close by. These include Tetbury, Castle Combe, Lacock and Avebury (both N.T.) and Cirencester. The ancient, royal borough of Malmesbury is just 2 miles away, offering good shopping facilities.

Sporting opportunities on the farm are plentiful. These include coarse and stocked trout fishing on a mile and a half stretch of the Wiltshire Avon, tennis on an hard court (N.B. please bring racquets and balls), a large croquet area, swimming in the heated open air pool during the summer months.
