This country cottage is just a short distance from the Georgian Spa town of Bath

Lovingly restored, this Grade II listed cottage resides in the pretty market town of Corsham, Wiltshire. Set within a vibrant walled garden, guests are greeted at the front door by opulent stone pillars followed by a grand entrance hall.
