Vendor's thoughts: " We have loved living in our cottage in Foxcote. It is so quiet, and peaceful, you can hear the owls at night. The surrounding countryside is just stunning and at the bottom of the field we love the charming stream and resident farm animals. The cottage has high ceilings, and a wonderful open plan and sociable feel, it's brilliant for parties and family gatherings. A real bonus is our commute to work which is just a few steps up the garden path to the home office! We cherish many fond memories of our time here - it has been a wonderful home for our family."
