About The House

Inside | Outside

Apple Tree House has been extended, reconfigured and electrically rewired and re-plumbed as part
of a comprehensive refurbishment in 2016.

It has a modern layout and the dining kitchen is particularly impressive, combining a beautiful kitchen with a convivial space for family life or entertaining. The property is used for promotional location shoots by brands which underlines the quality of the finish and presentation.

In addition, a detached two bedroomed stone cottage within the grounds is ideal for relatives but is currently let as a successful Airbnb holiday cottage, whilst a studio adjoining the garage is used in connection with the seller’s refexology business.

The gardens lie to the south and west of the house and extend to 0.31 of an acre. A six bar gate opens to the gravelled driveway where there is space for parking, and which leads through to Apple Tree Cottage at the western end of the property.

The gardens are walled and are largely laid to lawn with mature deciduous and fruit trees framing views to grassland pasture.

We are amazingly blessed living 10 minutes from the A1 in so are a very good supper/overnight half way stay for people driving from Scotland to London and vice versa so I always have a freezer full of goodies to feed the tired travellers! 
We gutted the house from top to bottom re-wiring, re-plumbing etc and used all local craftsman including a lovely man in the village who made all the double glazed sash windows. 
Dog walking is superb and if you are out walking on a Thursday afternoon you tend to see the wonderful spectacle of the hounds racing across the fields.
