Situation    

Urchfont is the quintessential English village, renowned for its charming central duck pond, stunning village Green and fine period properties; picturesque and with a thriving community, it is situated in the famous Pewsey Vale surrounded by rolling downland and unspoilt open countryside. There is a successful community shop/post office to meet the demands and needs of residents and the Urchfont Church of England Primary School was recently awarded Good status by Ofsted. For Secondary schooling, Urchfont lies in the catchment area of nearby Market Lavington. There is a very popular village public house, The Lamb. There is also a village hall that hosts an incredible number of social clubs and societies. For sports enthusiasts the village boasts a Badminton Club, Football and Tennis Clubs, and a Cricket Club. There is also an annual scarecrow festival (Urchfont was the first village in Wiltshire to start one up).

Communications are good: The Urchfont Community Bus provides a scheduled bus service from the village to Devizes, Bath, Swindon and Salisbury. Nearby Pewsey has a mainline railway station (Paddington about one hour) and the major centres of Swindon, Chippenham, Marlborough, Bath and Salisbury are all within a thirty mile radius. Direct links to the M3 and M4 are close by.
