There are some great public houses nearby including The Goff's Manor which is grade II listed, dating back to the 15th century. There is also the excellent Fastway bus service in the immediate vicinity which offers regular links to a variety of popular destinations.

Homethorne House is set in delightful and well-tended grounds which are available for use by Resident's and their guests.

The second bedroom is also a double room, with built in double wardrobes and views across the communal gardens to the front.

The lounge/diner is 17'0 in length and provides ample space for both relaxing and dining. A particularly nice feature is the large picture window and door which opens onto a patio which abuts the communal gardens.

To remember our customers are for life.  Recent testimonials: October 2018 I would highly recommend Greenaway Residential. Their informative valuations and helpful staff have helped put us on the right track. Their rates are also very competitive and we will be using them in the future! October 2018 Brilliant service from Greenaway! I am letting a property out through them and the service I received from getting my property listed through to the tenants moving in, was exceptional! Nicola is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this estate agents. September 2018 Absolutely brilliant service from Greenaway - we got exactly what price we hoped for our house which was more than we was told by other agents to expect. The sale of the house was quick and efficient - and despite other agents in our chain being unprofessional, unreliable and hard to communicate with Greenaway worked hard to ensure the chain did not fall through due to other high street agents inexperience. And after looking for a new property to buy I can safely say I'll never use an online agent or a high street agents to sell a property. Money very well spent as they worked hard to get their commission which meant we got more money, quicker and less delays and hassle. Greenaway picked up other agents in our chains issues and dealt with everything for all my chains benefit. You really do get what you pay for and I'm glad to have chosen a personal professional agent rather than a big chain. There is much more to selling a house than just putting it online - it requires a lot of background chasing once a sale has been agreed to ensure the chain completes and I'm glad we had Simon and Raj ensuring this was done correctly and quickly.
