    Hidden from view behind a high wall, this unique, detached, period holiday cottage was once part of Heytesbury House. The poet Siegfried Sassoon spent the latter part of his life at Heytesbury House, which he purchased in 1933, and his son George Sassoon grew up there and inherited the house. By 1939, there were sixteen new residents at Heytesbury, evacuees sent for safety at the beginning of the Second World War. In 1942, the evacuees left Heytesbury and were replaced by American troops in November. By the middle of 1944, there were twenty five American troops sleeping in the house and another thousand camped in the grounds.
