The current sellers have landscaped their garden and open it for public appreciation once a year. With an extensive patio area with pergola over directly to the rear of the house making an ideal space for summertime entertaining leads to the main section of the garden which is laid to lawn with pathways and steps meandering through the various layered sections and to the rear perimeter where the refurbished, heated swimming pool is positioned. Being south facing in aspect the garden really does allow you to follow the sun all day long and make the most of the balmy summer evenings.
Sellers Comments - Buckland has a very strong community spirit - driven by the Buckland Society whose marquee event is an annual pub weekend, held in the Village Hall. The church community is also very active. However, you can participate as much or as little as you like - the village allows people to retain their privacy.
We have lived here since 30th September 1999 and raised both grown up son and daughter from the property.

In 2004, the rear of the cottage and lower garden were extensively remodelled and renovated - creating a 4th bedroom and a second ensuite bathroom
In 2006/7, the main ensuite bathroom was refitted and tiled
In 2008, Neville Johnson study fitted
In 2011/12, the garden and rear elevations of the thatch were replaced.
In 2012, the pool was completely rebuilt. An eco-friendly air source heat pump was installed
In 2015, the kitchen and utility room were remodelled; complete new set of kitchen furniture and cooking appliances installed; underfloor heating placed beneath tiled floor
In 2016, the dormer roof was replaced
In 2018, the front elevations of the thatch (facing into the drive) and the ridge were replaced
