Our home

Our home was built in 2004. It is wheelchair accessible with 4 double bedrooms and one room with 2 single beds. 2 rooms are ensuites. It is a child friendly house with wooden gates at the entrance. We have bikes, toys and an enclosed basketball/tennis area. There are lovely hill views to the south and farmers fields on 3 sides. We grow a few vegetables and have blackcurrant and redcurrant bushes. We have tarmacadam all around the house so it is great for kids on bikes and tricycles. There is a large lawn for kicking a ball around.
