Sunnyside Cottage, which is listed Grade II, could arguably be described as a classic English country cottage, with its exposed wall and ceiling beams, thatched roof and inglenook fireplace. Built principally of cob and dating back, we believe, to the 17th Century, a sympathetic extension was created in the 1990’s and this is now a very comfortable home of great charm which the current owners have taken care to maintain and improve. In the last few years gas central heating has been installed, the electrical wiring renewed and the cottage re-thatched.
Winterbourne Dauntsey, which interconnects with Winterbourne Earls and Winterbourne Gunner, is situated approximately three miles to the north of the Cathedral city of Salisbury, with a regular bus service to it, and where there is a mainline station with trains to London Waterloo, and an excellent range of cultural, retail, educational and entertainment amenities.

There is access on both sides of the cottage to the rear garden, where again there is an area of lawn, with many well established trees, shrubs and flowering plants in deep flower beds as well as space for a fruit and vegetable plot. At the far end is a large workshop and a decked area sheltered by a pergola, as well as a pedestrian gate out to a footpath.
