Shopping

Nearest Corner shop – Great Somerford, probably 3 or so miles.

Malmesbury has everything you need (6 mile drive).

Butcher, small Co-Op, bakery, chemist, hardware, deli/organic shop, and much more.

Waitrose on outskirts of Malmesbury
Sainsbury’s in Wootton Bassett (also 6 mile drive).
Small M&S at BP fuel station on outskirts of Wootton Bassett
Wootton Bassett also has everything, but not quite as picturesque as Malmesbury
