Acerca de nuestra casa

We bought this farmhouse as a wreck 15 years ago and have spent all these years doing it up. The house is full of Georgian and earlier furniture and paintings. I care passionately about restoring old buildings to their former glory, this house dates back to 1750.
On the ground floor there is a large kitchen with aga, utility room which was once the cheese room, games room, sitting room, cloakroom, drawing room, dining room and study. There is a cellar which houses the ping pong table. Upstairs there are two very large double bedrooms one with en suite bathroom and the other having access to a bathroom which is shared with a small double bedroom. A single room with four poster bed, a twin bedroom and another single, plus bathroom, all leading off a very large and spacious landing.
Tennis is a great family favourite and the boys are very keen cricketers, hence the net.
Bev, my cleaning lady comes in twice a week and Paul tends the vegetables which are there for your enjoyment.
There are 8 acres of garden,croquet lawn, orchard, meadow, fields and a lake to loose yourself in, and no neighbours within shouting distance, it really is a piece of heaven set in the heart of the English Countryside.

Más sobre nosotros

  1. My name is Sarah and I am married to Richard and we have two sons, James (14) and Pip (12).
    I am an antiques dealer and Richard is a banker working three days a week in London and two from home. I love going to auctions and sales and rummaging around antique shops, there is a very good auction 15 miles away where one always finds something interesting. Although none of us ride there are some riding stables and tuition centre very close by which many of our friends use.
    We have two pet pigs called Willa and Ceci who will be here for the house swap but I will arrange for someone to come and feed them, three dogs and half a dozen chickens.
    The boys are desperate to travel somewhere that is close to the sea, we have never done a house swap before but it does seem an extremely good idea. We have two cars, a huge Volvo Estate and a Subaru Legacy, both automatic.

Betton Hall Farm is located 2 miles north from a pretty town called Market Drayton, which on Wednesdays still has a very popular street market selling fresh local produce. The Historic Medieval town of Shrewsbury is 30 minutes away by car and well worth a visit. Chester is 1 hour and Ludlow 1 1/4 hours. The Industrial Revolution took place very close by in Ironbridge which boasts many museums and attractions for all the family. The Potteries, famous for giving the world the finest china from the most famous factories is 1/2 an hour away in Stoke on Trent. If you enjoy walking and cycling then some of the most beautiful walks in this country are on the Welsh Marches which is border country between Wales and England, you will also come across many ancient castles on your travels. An hour in the car will take you to The Long Mynd or Snowdonia for great walking. London is 1 hour 20 mins by train from Stafford station (15 miles from Betton). You can get to Birmingham in an hour by car or train and Manchester in an hour and half.
