FINE & COUNTRY OLD YARD COTTAGE “We first moved into Woodbine cottage, another property in the village of Churchover, in 1983,” say the current owners of this beautifully presented detached property close to Rugby, “having moved jobs from Watford to Rugby. We were attracted into the village because of its rural setting and position so close to all motorway routes. We built Old Yard Cottage in 2005 in the grounds of Woodbine Cottage and have lived there ever since.”

Seller Insight We first moved into Woodbine cottage, another property in the village of Churchover, in 1983,” say the current owners of this beautifully presented detached property close to Rugby, “having moved jobs from Watford to Rugby. We were attracted into the village because of its rural setting and position so close to all motorway routes. We built Old Yard Cottage in 2005 in the grounds of Woodbine Cottage and have lived there ever since.” “We really love our house,” the owners continue. “It has everything we have always wanted, providing us with accommodation that can sleep up to eight people. Having seen our children grow into adults at Old Yard Cottage, we have a wealth of happy memories of living here. The property has also played host to many wonderful celebrations and social gatherings with family and friends. The only reason we are leaving the property is that we have reached a time in our lives when a smaller ‘down sized’ house or bungalow would be more appropriate”. The garden too is a fine feature of this countryside property. “The south facing garden is very spacious,” say the owners, “measuring approximately 45 by 16 metres, and is not at all overlooked, enjoying far reaching views over the surrounding fields. It is mostly laid to lawn with various landscaped features including two ponds, one with decking and both with waterfalls, a wooden bridge, wooden arch, large shed, greenhouse, woodshed, dove cote and ornate bird table. There is a covered seat and pagoda with decking for al fresco dining and summer entertaining. Power runs to the ponds, shed and pagoda, meaning we can enjoy the garden late into the summer evenings, as well as easily maintain the garden.” The village location also has much to offer. “We have a community centre with a licensed bar,” say the owners, “where there are always numerous activities and social events. The local primary school is the Revel school at Monks Kirby. Older children go to school in Rugby or Lutterworth. There are buses that arrive in the morning and evening to take children to and from these schools, stopping opposite our house. Regarding points of interest, there are some ideal walks for dog owners and joggers alike, just a minute away in the beautiful countryside.” “We have had some wonderful family reunions with brothers, sisters and grandchildren alike and wedding celebrations. The house is ideal for parties with its large kitchen, conservatory and lounge.” “Without a doubt the 4m x 5m south facing conservatory is our favourite room, this is where we spend 80% of our time.” “We really appreciate the cottage’s countryside setting, also being in the ideal location for motorways. The social life in the village is fantastic, too.” “We will miss the amount of floor space we have here with under floor heating, as well as our conservatory and lovely garden.” * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.
