The neighbourhood has been sensitively designed to mirror those in the nearby village of Great Somerford by reflecting the
same traditional exterior finishes stone, red brick and premium quality roughcast render. You'll also find the same eclectic
mix of chimneys.

Each home is surrounded by open spaces and has glorious views over countryside along with designated parking.

The Local Area
The development borders the thriving village of Great Somerford, first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Cycle paths from Somerbrook into the village lead to the popular primary school, the busy village shop and Post Office and
the handsome 19th century Volunteer Inn, which is owned by Wiltshire brewer Arkell's. The village also boasts the beautiful 12th century Grade I listed Church of St Peter and St Paul, a lively community hub that welcomes worshippers and non worshippers to a wide range of events.

The village is the home of Britain's first allotments - given to the parish by King George III in 1809.

The whole village comes together each August for the Somerford Show. This colourful celebration of country life that
is now in its 125th year, includes horses, flowers, dogs and good food. Twice a year, in July and October, top class horse riders compete at the Dauntsey Park Horse Trials on the edge of the village.

All around Somerbrook there are family days out to enjoy. Just 11 miles down the road at the stunning Cotswold Water Park
you can stroll around 170 lakes made from former gravel pits.

The park is a haven for wildlife with more than 20,000 wintering waterbirds and 21,000 gulls making their way there every year. The lakes are also home to hordesof breeding warblers, nightingales and plovers plus otters, voles and shrews, while
the fertile meadows are perfect for bees, butterflies and rare orchids.

The park is also a vibrant hub for watersports including kayaking, waterskiing, canoeing, inflatable rides and swimming. The Cotswold Country Park and Beach even has its own stretch of golden sand for sunny days.

On Your Doorstep
Somerbrook is just seven miles from the fast railway line to London at Chippenham, 12 miles from the station at Kemble, is just ten minutes drive from Junction 16 of the M4 and 35 minutes from the M5.

The beautiful market town of Malmesbury, home to a secondary school, a magnificent 12th century abbey, pubs, independent shops and two big supermarkets, is just ten minutes drive. The historic Roman town of Cirencester is just half an hour away. There are many shops, pubs and restaurants to explore in this delightful Cotswold gem.

The community is spoiled for country walks and just a few minutes away is the world-famous Westonbirt Arboretum, an ideal strolling and dog walking spot all year round but particularly in the autumn when it provides a breathtaking
riot of colour.

There are plenty of opportunities for cyclists to enjoy the great outdoors. Just a few minutes to the north of the development, at Somerford common, is a 35-mile section of the Wiltshire Cycleway, which runs from Malmesbury to Great Bedwyn near Marlborough.
