Message From The Seller

We’ve enjoyed many happy years holidaying at our house in Barenton. Not only does the house have a really welcoming friendly feel it is also well situated for cycling through the surrounding countryside, a gentle stroll into the local town for the obligatory morning croissant, or for heading off in the car to nearby beauty spots, sampling the delights of the many great restaurants plus so much more.
