The cottage is on the farm I grew up on, and my family make up a high percentage of the neighbours. I visit frequently, but have lived in London for over 30 years.
Year property purchased: 2003
Why this location?
The property has been in the family since it was built for one of the dairymen on the farm, which at that time had a large dairy herd. The farm is now a mixed organic farm. The countryside is wonderful, with great walks, cycling, water-sports etc. The road outside the cottage is busier than it used to be, but still a fairly quiet road. The view from the living rooms is of fields often with cows. Red kite and buzzards can be seen overhead. Pied wagtails etc dot the garden
