Corsham
The historic town of Corsham, once listed as The Times' number four in the South West region of the UK to live is set in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside and is a perfect mixture of country living whilst still being close to Bath and Chippenham as well as the M4. The magazine editor Helen Davies stated 'Ten miles from the exceedingly expensive and exceedingly popular Bath, it's built largely from the same pale stone (dug from the quarries), making it a more affordable alternative'.

You can't visit the town without spotting the famous Peacocks or taking a walk around Corsham Court, a former Saxon Royal Manor based on an Elizabethan home from 1582 which is surrounded by beautiful open countryside walks and a lake. Corsham was also the inspiration for Charles Dickens' novel, The Pickwick Papers. It is reported that Dickens thought of the name from Moses Pickwick, a coachman who was born in Pickwick and lived in the Hare and Hounds pub.

The Strakers Corsham team adore the quirky town and all of the wonderful variety of properties we have in and around the area; whether you're looking for a period cottage or a more modern home.
