DESCRIPTION The Old Laundry is a very attractive 'chocolate box' detached cottage set within the village of Didmarton next to the 13th Century Church.

On the ground floor, there is a large front reception room complete with fireplace and wood-burning stove inset. To the rear, there is an Aga kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the garden and downstairs bathroom fitted with both a bath and separate shower unit. On the first floor, there are three good sized bedrooms. The stunning principal bedroom is located on the top floor benefitting from an en-suite WC and basin, fitted wardrobes and boasts exposed timber trusses.
The cottage has a front garden with central path setting it away from the lane. A drive to the side provides access to the private off-road parking area located at the foot of the garden set behind a five-bar gate and complete with a timber constructed garage/outbuilding. The generous sized sunny rear garden is a true delight, laid mostly to lawn with mature shrub borders and trees bound by Cotswold stone walling. From the kitchen rear door there is a sunken patio terrace for alfresco dining.
SITUATION Didmarton is an attractive village situated on the edge of the Cotswolds close to the Gloucestershire/Wiltshire border surrounded by the Duke of Beaufort's 'Badminton' Estate. The property is within walking distance of the Kings Arms pub/restaurant and the village hall/playing fields. The village has a high number of historic listed houses and a local garage which also provides everyday essentials. Attractions nearby include the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum, Beaufort Polo Club and the famous Badminton Horse Trials. The village is also surrounded by a network of paths and bridleways providing excellent walking and riding amidst beautiful parkland and countryside. There is a number of excellent primary schools located close by at Leighterton, Hawkesbury Upton, Sherston and Luckington whilst private education is offered at Westonbirt School and Beaudesert Park School. The market town of Tetbury is only 7 miles away and has more comprehensive facilities. Didmarton is very well placed for the A46, M4 (Junction 18), Bath and Bristol all of which are very commutable.
