Beautiful homes in a scenic and sought-after Wiltshire town
Bringing a range of new two, three and four-bedroom homes to the picturesque market town of Malmesbury in Wiltshire, Backbridge Farm could be your perfect place to call home.
A quintessential English town and the country's oldest borough, Malmesbury is set atop a hill in the rolling Wiltshire countryside, close to the larger towns of Cirencester, Swindon and Chippenham. With a history stretching back to the Iron Age, the town is home to honey-coloured 17th and 18th-century buildings, the magnificent Abbey, and the oldest hotel in England. It also hosts a great range of amenities, charming shops, pubs, eateries and schools – all within walking distance of Backbridge Farm, via a brand new footbridge crossing the River Avon.
