Vendor's thoughts: "Berrymans has been a wonderful home for us for almost twelve years. A perfect location in a Cotswold village, with easy access to schools and services in Cheltenham and Cirencester. Whether it has been enjoying the summer sunshine in the peaceful and secluded garden or relaxing in front of a roaring fire in the colder months, family and friends always remark what a lovely house this is, with a very special atmosphere. The separate home office has made working from home a pleasure and we shall be sorry to leave."
