THE RED HOUSE The village is a social place with plenty to offer all; it benefits from tennis, cricket, football and youth clubs and a local Scouts group, amongst others. There are two well-run pubs, both of which are very different; “The White Hart, which runs a good quiz night, is closest to home and lovely to pop into after a dog walk and a warm up by the fire. Hugh the landlord cooks a fantastic curry about once a month too. The Snooty Tavern is more of a gastro pub with a small but good menu” says Ray. St Neots Golf Club is only 4.4 miles away with a number of members living in the village and, as Ray points out, “there’s always someone around and up for a game, which is a huge bonus.”

Seller Insight Ray, Sarah and their two daughters have lived at The Red House, a Grade II listed detached property in Great Staughton for close to 20 years and have found it to be a great place to live; “the village made a big impression on me initially, especially the friendliness of people. On my first visit to the house I could picture my family living here and it fulfilling all our needs as our daughters grew up” says Ray. “I fell in love with the character, light and ambience of The Red House” adds Sarah. The village is a social place with plenty to offer all; it benefits from tennis, cricket, football and youth clubs and a local Scouts group, amongst others. There are two well-run pubs, both of which are very different; “The White Hart, which runs a good quiz night, is closest to home and lovely to pop into after a dog walk and a warm up by the fire. Hugh the landlord cooks a fantastic curry about once a month too. The Snooty Tavern is more of a gastro pub with a small but good menu” says Ray. St Neots Golf Club is only 4.4 miles away with a number of members living in the village and, as Ray points out, “there’s always someone around and up for a game, which is a huge bonus.” “On a practical note, Great Staughton Primary School is 100m from the house and there are good independent schools in Bedford and Kimbolton catering for all ages. St. Neots train station is only 6.5 miles from the house with direct trains into London’s Kings Cross Station.” “Having rooms that you can all gather in and sit comfortably is great, as is having additional living rooms for when a bit of quiet is required – this has always been a real plus point of the house. The patio area is a great space for entertaining and we’ve enjoyed many BBQ’s with friends and family here.”*

We will miss everything about the place as itâ€™s been a really happy home. We are planning to stay local to the village and are hoping to self-build.â€?

The kitchen is very much the hub of the house, and the dining room really comes into its own for large dinner parties.â€?

The wrap-around garden is wonderful and we had new plants put in last year so that the beds at the front of the house have a cottage garden theme. There are a number of lovely walks around the village which are a real pleasure.â€?
