About Kate Bicknell
Church Farm is home to Kate, Will, Libby ( our 10 year old daughter ) and our 2 dogs, Hattie ( Jack Russell Terrier ) and Teasel ( Shnautzer ). Although no longer a working farm it is a busy and friendly place with something interesting going on wether its an exhibition or workshop in our gallery in the barn, or a wonderful work of art being delivered to Kate's paper conservation studio housed in some of the converted farm buildings.
Kate Bicknell purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Kate Bicknell chose Wiltshire
Kate and Will fell in love with Church Farm 10 years ago after deciding it was the perfect place to raise a family and run their businesses. The property is situated in the heart of the idyllic village of Kington Langley so has a rural feel but is still with in very easy access of main line railway station ( Chippenham 5 minutes ) Bristol Airport ( 45 minutes ) or the motor way - Junction 17 on the M4- 5 minutes). People are helpful and friendly, the landscape is beautiful and varied and though offering a huge variety of culture, activities and amenities still maintains generally more relaxed way of life than it does closer to London, and Oxfordshire, where we moved from. and life Wiltshire is
