Tucked away on a grassland farm in rural Wiltshire, The Old Swill House, is a wonderful 2 bedroom holiday home. It has just been converted from a listed, stone-tiled farm building that dates back 300 years and retains its original features, to provide a couple or family of four with a stylish base for their countryside escape. The Old Swill House has ample parking and no steps enabling you to bring your luggage into the cottage with ease. Upon entering the cottage, you will be delighted by the vaulted ceiling, rustic pillars, beams and stonework of the open-plan living space. You can unwind in its beautifully furnished, well-lit sitting area warmed by a woodburning stove; read, play games, listen to music or watch a movie on the Smart TV. Behind a bar is the fully-equipped, spacious kitchen to prepare all your meals. You can dine at the wooden round table inside or outside on a stone patio where there is also a BBQ. The first-floor snug is another space to relax and enjoy views over the fabulous open-plan living space and out to the fields beyond. As the day winds to a close, you can retreat to the ground-floor king-size bedroom, or upstairs to the twin room, which is also an ideal, quiet space for your children to sleep. The Old Swill House is set in a stunning, large courtyard of stone tiled buildings, and was originally used to store carts and harnesses, and feed for the farm pigs.
