St Peters’ Close is a small exclusive development by Cognatum Estates, quietly situated adjacent to the 15th Century church of St Peter, on the edge of the sought-after village of Goodworth Clatford. The village has a Post Office/store, primary school and two public houses. There are delightful riverside walks within a short distance. Andover, a short drive away, offers a more comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to Waterloo. The picturesque town of Stockbridge, traversed by the celebrated River Test, is approximately five miles away to the south, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country.
