Redrow - Stockley Grange, SN11
The delightful rural town of Calne is so popular, this is Redrow’s second development there. Hardly surprising when you consider London is just an hour and a quarter away from nearby Chippenham, and Bristol is even closer, just a 30 mile drive.
Stockley Grange has everything you could want for you and your family, from excellent schools close to the development, to great entertainment within easy reach, while Calne combines excellent shopping and leisure facilities, with a superb location in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside.
Calne has plenty to keep the family occupied, from the famous white horse carved in the hillside beneath the Wessex Ridgeway footpath, to Calne Leisure Centre with its first class facilities, including pool. Nearby Bowood House makes an exciting day out, with everything from exhilarating rope walks and the Space Dive, to the historic country house and Capability Brown designed gardens. Bowood house is also a luxury golf and country club with a challenging course. Golfers will also enjoy North Wiltshire Golf Course to the south east of the town. Calne itself has a great community spirit, with lots of festivals and events throughout the year, including the largest free motorcycle show in Europe.
Stockley Grange couldn’t be better placed for local schools, with both primary and secondary schools within walking distance. Holy Trinity CofE Primary Academy is rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, with ‘outstanding behaviour, personal development and welfare’, while The John Bentley School is rated ‘good’ across the board. Calne is also home to first class independent education, with St Mary’s School for Girls, serving ages 11 to 18, which was rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
Calne has plenty to offer shoppers, both on a regular weekend and at the many special events held throughout the year. There is an ancient market in the town every Friday and Saturday, along with fascinating specialist markets from time to time, such as the winter and summer fairs. Nearby Chippenham offers an even wider choice, with the Borough parade and Emery Gate shopping centers, plus out of town shopping at the Hathaway Retail Park. Swindon Designer Outlet is well worth the drive for a big name bargain, while Marlborough has a growing reputation for ladies fashion, backed by a chic café culture that completes a delightful day out.
Calne once formed an important stop on the coaching route between London and the port of Bristol, and the nearby A4 is still a major trunk road between the two. Calne lies within easy reach of the M4, with J16 for westbound and J17 for eastbound both around 12 miles drive. Chippenham is just 6miles, Devises 8miles, Swindon 16miles, Bath 20miles, Bristol 30miles and Salisbury 33miles. Chippenham station has 640 convenient park and ride spaces, and offers direct trains to London Paddington in just 75 minutes and Bristol in 30 minutes. If you are heading further afield, both Bristol Airport and Heathrow are easily accessible via the M4.
