Cognatum has more retirement developments in Wiltshire than any other county testifying to its popularity with the retired looking for value for money amongst its many beautiful towns from Marlborough in the north to Salisbury in the south. Marlborough is renowned for having one of the widest and grandest high streets in England. 17th century merchant‘s houses are concealed behind much later 18th century facades and medieval cottages can be found in intriguing alleyways that lie between the colonnaded shops in the High Street.

It is now converted into six apartments overlooking a formal garden with pleached and pollarded lime avenues. The new cottages and apartments face each other across the garden square and are built in Regency style. There is a visiting estate manager.
