Vendor's thoughts: "After working in London we wanted a complete change - a cottage in the country and we were so lucky. The house accommodates our London friends and family easily. It gives the grandchildren space to be away from their parents, to play hide and seek or football in the garden. I will miss my friends in the village and the activities I have enjoyed, cinema, Pilates, table tennis, 'books and biccies' and the Falcon."
