Chitterne is a close knit small rural community which is situated amidst rolling chalk downland on the western edge of Salisbury Plain and the village has a public house, church, village hall, playground and cricket club, whilst the nearby larger villages of Codford, Heytesbury and Shrewton have between them good everyday amenities including a selection of shops, Post Office facilities, primary schools, petrol stations, doctors surgeries and vets.
The market town of Warminster is approximately eight miles away where there are more extensive facilities including a railway station with services to London, Bristol and Southampton whilst Westbury has direct rail services to London Paddington. The nearest regional airports are at Bournemouth, Bristol and Southampton.
Chitterne is an attractive location on the edge of countryside which is easily accessible. The nearby A36 provides convenient access to the cathedral City of Salisbury and Bath, whilst the A303 is also within striking distance which gives direct access to London, the west country, the Thames Valley corridor and the motorway network. The village is well within reach of several well regarded schools in both the state and private sectors including Dauntseys, Warminster School and Salisbury’s grammar and independent schools. Chitterne is surrounded by wide open stretches of undulating countryside which cater for all manner of country pursuits including walking, riding, field sports and cyling, as well as sailing at Shearwater. Racing is at Salisbury, Bath and Wincanton in addition to rugby union at Bath and golf at Tollard Royal, Warminster and Salisbury. There are several interesting visitor attractions nearby including the National Trust gardens at Stourhead, the stately home and Safari Park at Longleat and the World Heritage prehistoric site at Stonehenge.

Outside there are twin five bar gates which lead to a parking and turning area in addition to a garage/woodstore/workshop which has oak timber cladding and clay tiled roof.
