Owners Comments

“We shall be very sad to leave our family home of 31 years. We have loved living here and hope that the next family will be as happy. The flexibility of accommodation has meant that we have enjoyed many social occasions with family and friends over the years.”

“The location was ideal for us when we moved in with good access by road and rail, as is still the case and so plan to stay in the area.”
