The house, extended by us, has been perfect for hosting large family gatherings, social occasions and even neighbourhood parties. Mardy Farm House is truly magical at Christmas, bedecked with greenery from the local hedgerows. We have truly loved our time here and will take with us many happy memories from listening to the distinctive call of the curlews nesting in the neighbouring fields or the tawny owls at dusk; watching the silage being cut and baled in the summer and waking up to beautiful bucolic views of cattle grazing and horses running free in the fields. You can actually hear the cattle grazing from the bedroom window on a summers morning! There are so many birds that come and visit the garden -greenfinches, goldfinches, woodpeckers, pheasants and the occasional free range chicken, to name but a few. The south facing garden is a wonderful place to relax with a glass of something chilled or have a snooze in the hammock hanging beneath the shade of the damson tree. The games room provides a year round space for relaxing.We feel that we have created the perfect balance between socialising, family life, working from home and the infrastructure for a small holding - chicken house and enclosure with orchard, separate vegetable plot with well stocked fruit cage, 42ft polytunnel, greenhouse, three acre field with natural pond and excellent storage for the tools needed.FINANCIAL SERVICESWe are delighted to work in conjunction with the highly reputable Opal Financial who offers FREE independent advice and has access to the whole marketplace of lenders.
