Vendor's thoughts: "We have lived in the tranquil village of Kempsford for 20 years now watching our two lovely children grow up. Barnstone Cottage has been the corner stone of our family journery with its warm and inviting touch which radiates throughout the house. We have enjoyed many family meals and discussions sat around the kitchen table. Very much the heart of the house, the kitchen is a superb versatile space with its bi-folding doors which open onto the terrace and garden beyond where we have enjoyed many afternoons and evenings relaxing. In the winter, with the wood burner warming the house, we've often all snuggled up watching our favourite films together. Barnstone Cottage is certainly more than just a house, it is a home where we have created loving memories."
