|Hopefully our new house.

Let me tell you a little about the house. It’s set on a country lane and is the last house on the left (there is a horror movie called that I think). There are only 3 houses on the lane so it is very private and listening to traffic drive by will be a thing of the past. Any cars will either be visiting us or lost! This is great news for hacking the horses out and about the beautiful English countryside.Speaking of horses, a big thumbs up for this house is the bridleways that surround it.

They both lead to many different routes, so much so you could do a different one each day of the week. I couldn’t ask for more!

It dosn't have as much land as the first house we looked at, but with good paddock management combined with lots of hacking and indoor stables, it’s more than enough for us. The house itself is a lot nicer looking than the first house we offered on. Doesn’t it look pretty?
