    Mrs Henstone, Oswestry, September 2014

    • “Fantastic house in an excellent location.”

    Mr Bates, Bristol, June 2014

    • “The farmhouse is in a beautiful situation on the side of a mountain, remote enough to make you feel like you have really got away from it all, but with a pub 20 minutes walk away. The views are stunning and there is a great walk up to Cader Idris from the farmhouse, once you have figured out finding the path.”

    Mr Greenwood, London, April 2014
