The following is a quotation from the home owners:
“Hollygrove is a true country paradise. Very quiet and tranquil. In Spring we enjoy watching the wildlife in our gardens (pheasants, rabbits, woodpeckers etc.) and balmy Summer evenings are spent having a tipple on the patio marveling at the bats zipping past and the glorious sunsets.
At Christmas it is wonderful having friends and family around to enjoy the log burner and the special mood created by the character of the house. We will miss it all.”
