Vendors' thoughts: "New Pike House has been a great family home. It has been so versatile with lots of space. in the summer months it’s amazing to throw open the doors and windows onto the garden and to enjoy the sun, wildlife and lambs in the neighbouring fields.
The annex my father lived offers plenty of room and was super for him to have us close to hand. My daughter lived in the flat for a while which was wonderful.
Bibury is an easy walking distance either via the fields or footpaths with lovely cafes, pubs, the Trout Farm. There are so many wonderful walks on the doorstep.
This has been the friendliest village I have ever known and it will be one of the saddest parts of leaving."
In a nutshell: A versatile and welcoming home in a superb edge of village location.

In the main house, the kitchen/dining room is clearly the heart of the house and a great room in which to entertain family and friends. There is plenty of worktop space and ample storage and with windows overlooking the garden this is a bright and light room.
The adjacent sitting room with open fireplace and dual aspect window and sliding doors is a wonderful room in which to relax after a long country walk.
The utility room with garden access and the cloakroom are great additions to the ground floor living space.
