Vendor's thoughts: "4 The Wern has been our family home for over 12 years having moved into the area from Lincolnshire. The area has exceeded all of our expectations as it has provided an environment for our children to thrive and grow into young adults taking advantage of the wide range of facilities and things to do on the doorstep. This small town has retained a ‘village’ feel with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and an opportunity to get involved in local activities."
In a nutshell: A wonderful family home, immaculately presented, in a superb location in the Cotswolds.
