    About this property

    Situated by the canal, this characterful cottage is the perfect base to explore the local area or relax and watch the passing boats.
    Lock Cottage is situated in a picturesque setting adjacent to the lock and canal. The cottage dates from 1865 when it was a lengthsman or lock-keepers cottage for the top lock of the Kennet and Avon Canal. The lengthsmen were responsible for lengths of the towpath and in the absence of a lock-keeper, for locks and surroundings which included the water levels and control of weirs. They were also responsible for the maintenance of banks on their length of canal, including cutting reeds and vegetation. The cottage still retains some of its original features including exposed beams and open fire places.
    This is a perfect base for exploring Marlborough and all the nearby National Trust land that surrounds the area. Lock Cottage has a large enclosed garden, fantastic for children or dogs, and you even have your own woodland to venture through. This is a great place to unwind and relax, and to just enjoy the delights of this part Wiltshire has to offer. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
