Testimonial From The Vendors
On completing major renovations that included gutting of two existing cottages and making into one, after which a new roof was erected.
We moved into our new home in April 1977 and have spend 42 very happy years here. With Jack Tor Road being only accessed by vehicles from one end it is a very close community with friendly and sociable neighbours who now hold an annual Christmas party. Over the years we still have many friends who used to be our neighbours and have now moved on.
We raised our son here and he, and the other local children, used our woodland as an adventure play area with rope swings and a tree house.
We also get a variety of wildlife visiting the garden including Badgers, Squirrels and a good number of Slow Worm which feed on slugs and snails (a real gardeners' friend). We also feed the birds and have some interesting species: Great Spotted Woodpecker, Goldfinch, Bullfinch, Jay, Nuthatch to name but a few.
Many years ago, a pond was constructed in the garden with a waterfall and has Koi Carp and a Green Tench.
We have a very productive vegetable garden and a large cooking apple tree that produced many buckets of apples.
We now look forward to our new chapter of life but will reminisce fondly of the old.
