Hungerford offers excellent local amenities including a good choice of shops, cafes and restaurants and there is a popular farm shop very close by. Marlborough offers further amenities including a Waitrose supermarket, selection of independent shops, and a cinema.

Hopgrass Farm House is accessed via a gravel driveway culminating in a gracious gravel turning circle in front of the classical façade. The gardens are fully mature and benefit from a delightful south-facing stone terrace bordered by neatly clipped box hedges and flowering mixed borders. The beautiful 17th century gabled rear elevation of the house is a stunning backdrop to the entertaining space focused around the terrace and more formal upper lawn. There is also a pergola planted with summer-flowering climbing plants attached to the period barn annexe. The gardens step down to a large, more informal area of lawn interspersed by mature trees and shrubs creating a beautiful green outlook from the house and upper garden.
