What the Owner says:
My mother bought this house 25 years ago and loved everything about it and the village itself. The cul-de-sac is small with a sense of community and homes here rarely change hands which is testament to its location and convenience.
I have been using the house as a weekend retreat and have enjoyed visiting the many surrounding villages and exploring the picturesque countryside, it really does feel like a holiday.
The two double bedrooms are ideal for when friends come to stay and there is so much to do to entertain them.
