Vendor's thoughts: "Mill Farmhouse is a fabulous warm and comfortable family home that has worked brilliantly for us over the last decade from having small children to teens, with wonderful cosy family times as well as numerous parties and social occasions. From the fantastic outdoor space including garden, river and paddock to the family kitchen and snug room, everyone in the family has their own favourite area! We are fortunate to have unspoilt rural views and yet be able to walk to the pub and friends; nip to the village shop or jump on a direct train to London, just 5 minutes away in Kemble....its a home in a great accessible location that enjoys the benefits of village life whilst maintaining its own privacy. For us it holds many very happy memories we will miss it hugely."
