Vendors' thoughts: "Prospect has been our special and much loved home for some time. We have so enjoyed the warm summers sitting in all corners of our garden, the autumn colours, and the cold winters when the village looks magical on those chilly, frosty days. The house itself has grown to suit us over the years, and the kitchen/living space which opens into the terrace has been a wonderful entertaining area over summer months. We love the history of the house and the village - we can see the Norman chapel from our windows and being able to walk into the woods and see the spring bluebells and catching sight of the deer is always an added bonus. We will miss everything about it but wish every happiness to whoever looks after it in the future."
