We first came to the village in 1975 and finally bought Ivy House in 1986. It is probably in the nicest possible position in the centre of the old village and that is why we have loved living here for the last 34 years. The house is obviously old and has lots of quirky character that gives you a warm 'friendly feeling' as you enter.
From the road, it appears to be a small property but people who visit are quite surprised at how it opens up into the garden beyond which is probably our favourite place to be during the warmer months - pottering around, playing with great-grandchildren or simply enjoying the company of friends and socialising somewhere in a warm corner.
