Such a pretty house! The feel is spacious, light, homely and elegant all at once. Views soar from the drawing room up the hill to Butleigh Wood, double doors lead to the dining room, a playroom has sofas, games, toys and a telly, the kitchen has all the kit you need and another table for chatting and informal breakfasts. A walk-in larder is stuffed with all the basics, just replace what you finish. When it’s warm you’ll loll in a wicker chair on the vine-covered veranda, feeling very French.
It’s quite safe to let children go free range in the garden. They’ll discover a wooden playhouse with an exciting secret tunnel, a bridge over to a big field and a sunken trampoline in the grass. You can play tennis on the grass court – racquets and balls are in the utility room where you’ll find extra coats and wellies and a drying rack.
Stride out for flat or hilly walks and cycles and there are grand nature trails through the woods above.
