Vendors' thoughts: "We have loved every minute living at Salters Barn. The house exudes a wonderful energy and the gardens are just gorgeous especially in the summer. The setting is so private yet we've never felt isolated and its been fabulous having both Cirencester and Cheltenham so near by. We will cherish the memories we have made in this home with our family and horses."
