Our children were very small then 3yrs and 1yr respectively so it’s the only home they have known throughout their childhood. It’s been an ideal location to bring up a family, spacious but comfortable giving us and them both the space and freedom to thrive.What we really love about the house and area is that it’s also so peaceful with lots of birds and wildlife in our garden, our field and the area generally. We have tried to keep our garden as organic as possible by not using any chemicals to encourage the wildlife.We love that we can walk from our back door and do a short or long walk as the mood takes us. We often walk into Ellesmere along the back lanes for a coffee and cake in some of the lovely cafes there.It’s also within easy driving distance of many towns, Ellesmere and Oswestry where we regularly shop as well as Shrewsbury and Chester, a railway station (Gobowen) and is also within walking distance of a bus route on the main road. Our neighbours are all very friendly and helpful and really the whole community are very friendly, you can always meet someone to have a chat with on our walks.There is a quarterly community magazine “The Magnet” run by volunteers which gives local information and lots of interesting information about the local area and people. Criftins parish hall offers many clubs, a bar, evening events, the Post Office and now a new take away at weekends, within an easy 10/15 minute walk.Now our children have both left home to build their own lives, it is, we feel, time to move on and downsize to enjoy our retirement and hopefully travel a lot more. All in all Hollymead has been a wonderful home over the past 30 yrs for our family and we will all miss living here very much.”
