The owner commented…'This has been our home for the past 32 years and from day one we fell in love with the cottage feel and its unique features, with the garden really the deal clincher – especially the treasure Bay Tree. The location is great and we often enjoy walks at the forest and as part of the local residents association, have enjoyed many community organised activities and events. We will be sad to leave the wonderful home, but we have decided to downsize and move to more rural surroundings'.
