Owners Comments
“We've loved living in Houghton for the past 16 years; it's a small but lively village only a few miles from Stockbridge, we're a stones throw from the River Test (the perfect swimming spot on a hot summers day), have access to a variety of walks into the neighbouring villages or along the river and are within walking distance to two very good pubs.”

“We extended and modernised the house not long after we moved here and it's spacious feel is ideal for families. One of the things we love is the tranquility; often all you can hear is the sound of the birds. “
