YEW TREE LODGE “It was snowing as we drove through the picturesque village of Old Warden and into the countryside beyond, and as we approached Yew Tree Lodge, we absolutely fell in love with it from the get-go,” say the vendors.

Seller Insight “This style and age of property can often be quite dark but it’s absolutely not the case with Yew Tree Lodge. The bottom floor is the living area and whilst each room is separate, they can be opened up to make the most of the space and we never feel ‘disconnected’ when we’re in different rooms. Nearly every room is dual or triple aspect which allows a huge amount of light to stream in through the windows. The music room and snug are bathed in sunlight in the summer months and I love to spend time in there, often opening the doors out onto the patio.” “The house has a lovely, homely feel to it, it’s always cosy and full of light. Being L-shaped, the house is surrounded by garden and everything leads out to the large patio area. The pond is a natural attraction for wildlife and the sight of deer is a common occurrence.” “There’s plenty to do in the local area, including some lovely walks. There’s a real buzz and vibrancy about the area in the summer months with lots of ramblers and cyclists passing by and the Shuttleworth Collection airshow in Old Warden is always fun. Everyone here is welcoming and community focussed and we’re very good friends with our neighbours. We own some of the land by the disused railway line and we often go up there in the summer, camp out with our friends and watch the airshow. It’s a very special spot indeed.” “The house is set by itself with no neighbours and we have always found that very appealing. We can close the gate and make as much noise as we like without bothering anyone and yet, we’re close to everything we need, including the fabulous Black Horse pub and restaurant which is just a 5-minute walk up the road.” “We spend most of our time outside during the summer and we have hosted plenty of BBQs and afternoon tea parties for around 20 people where we have hired soft toys for the children to play on.”

“We had looked for a long time to find a house like Yew Tree Lodge which is full of character and light and it’s with sadness that we have to leave. It was meant to be our forever home but we are moving due to work commitments and we will miss everything about living here.”

“As a family, we tend to spend most of our time in the kitchen and we like to sit and eat together at the large table. The kitchen flows into the sitting room and we often relax in here with the fire lit in the winter months, it’s a very warm and cosy house with a good, healthy vibe.”
