The Barns at Romsey Oak Farm are situated in a delightful rural setting yet within easy reach of the World Heritage City of Bath (10 miles) which offers a wealth of cultural amenities and sporting interests. The historic market town of Bradford-on-Avon (3 miles) and Trowbridge, the County town of Wiltshire, (3 miles) both provide a comprehensive range of business, shopping and recreational facilities. In addition, both towns have a mainline railway link providing quick and easy access to London Paddington (via Bath, Chippenham or Westbury), Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Salisbury. The property is close to the Wiltshire/Somerset border where the River Frome forms most of the boundary.

The nearby village of Wingfield has a Primary school, a Church and a Public House named The Poplars with its own cricket pitch!

The structures comprise a mixture of steel portal framed barns and steel framed Dutch barns with corrugated sheeted roofing panels and the floors are partly concrete. There is ample parking for cars and vehicles and the property benefits from direct access onto the B3109 with good visibility in both directions.
