Comment from the owners - "Saddlers has been our family home for nearly 20 years, with our children attending local schools. They have all moved on and started families of their own, this is the main reason we would like to move so we can be closer to our family and grandchildren. We have loved every minute living in Sixpenny Handley and will be sad to leave"

Saddlers is an impressive detached property, set back from the road and approached through a gated driveway which is lined to either side by hedgerows and encircles a decorative stretch of lawn with shrubbery.
