Shackleton Place is a unique setting with the feel of a hamlet community set among mature trees, rolling countryside and abundant wildlife you might be fooled to think you were living miles from anywhere. However Devizes is only 0.7 miles distance where you will find a thriving Market Town full of independent and well-known shops, as well as a market square with a super outdoor market every Thursday. There’s also plenty to keep you busy and active nearby. Devizes Leisure Centre is just 1.2 miles away and a cinema, library and Devizes Bowls Club are all within 1 mile of Shackleton Place.
Devizes features a variety of local and national shops including a large Sainsbury’s that’s just under a mile from the development. The town is also lucky to have kept a good selection of unique independent shops offering a wide range of goods not found elsewhere. Weekly general and collectors markets, farmers’ markets and continental markets also serve to give the town a rich sense of character and community. A visit to the town’s central Market Place offers several restaurants and cafes for laid back afternoons and evening meals, as well as a range of boutiques and shops. There is a pedestrianised area known as The Brittox. Devizes is also home to the Wadworth Brewery at the north end of Market Place, their Shire Horses can regularly be seen making deliveries across the town centre. Lovers of the great outdoors will enjoy the fantastic access to the stunning Salisbury plain in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. With 300 square miles of chalk downlands, the plain is known for its rich archaeological history and is also home to the legendary Stonehenge.
