Surrounding area and communications
Clatford is a small hamlet approximately 1 mile west of the village of Manton and about 2 miles west of Marlborough. The hamlet is just south of the A4 and River Kennet (giving rise to the name of the house) although this property is located on the north side. Manton is a pretty village with a well regarded public house and village school. Marlborough is a very popular and busy market town with twice weekly markets and a good selection of shops including Waitrose and a number of boutiques and restaurants, pubs and cafes. This area is much sought after due to its links with local schools. There is superb access to London with a choice of Swindon, Pewsey or Great Bedwyn offering high speed trains to London Paddington. The M4 motorway can be joined at Junction 15. The surrounding Wiltshire countryside is quite exceptional providing excellent walking, riding and sporting activities and is part of the North Wessex Downs AONB.
From Marlborough High Street proceed west on the A4 in the direction of Chippenham and Calne. After approximately 2 miles, turn right onto the driveway of the property which is located as indicated by our board, opposite a turning to Clatford on the left hand side.
