About our home


The house is a four bedroom bungalow - the only modern house in the very centre of a beautiful, historic English village - with all the advantages of a modern house and all the charm of a four hundred year old village. There is a living room which is approximately 25' long, two bathrooms (one with bath, one with shower) and a kitchen equipped for dining with an eight seater table. There is use of two Apple Macinstosh Computers, a 42" Plasma TV with Sky+ Satellite (like Satellite TiVo), WiFi and a Wii. There are also instruments including a Baby Grand Piano and Fender Strat that you can use and several hundred books. For cleaning there is an iRobot Roomba and and iRobot Scooba.

We have a small external gym in our garden with a Multigym and Elliptical trainer

The garden is something of a wildlife preserve with English wild flowers, birds and animals like hedgehogs, edible blackberries and edible currants rather than being formal. There is a children's climbing frame and swings in the garden and a playhouse. There is also a selection of bicycles (and helmets) of various sizes.

We have a Saab 900i which we can offer in exchange.
