  • BeauchampsBEAUCHAMPS Before we purchased Beauchamps just over six years ago we were living fairly locally, says Amanda. My husband used to cycle past the house quite regularly and had absolutely fallen in love with it, so when it finally came up for sale we jumped at the chance to own it.

  • The previous owners had lived in the house for over thirty years, so it was in need of updating, but we ended up renovating much of the house and stable yard. Weve gone through it with a fine tooth comb, says Amanda, but there are still

    plenty of ways that a new owner could put their

    mark on the house.

    which has a lovely high street that sells everything you could

    possibly need.
