Follow the road for approx mile (you will pass some houses on the right and Merrybower Farm on the bend). Go over the brick train bridge and then the canal bridge with white railings. Take the 2nd driveway on the right after the canal bridge (there is a brick and stone sign with 3 house names). Follow the gravel drive right to the end to the black wrought iron gates.

Originally Highfield House was a substantial beamed cottage, the current owners have carried out an extension and improvements to create this stunning property which deserves a full inspection.

The ground floor has a practical side with large dining kitchen and family rooms whilst the extension creates a fabulous entertaining and relaxation space. On the first floor the master bedroom is charming with feature windows, fitted wardrobes and a large en-suite shower room. Three further bedrooms are on this floor whilst a potential granny annexe/guest suite is on the ground floor.

This lovely home occupies an extensive garden plot which provides far reaching views over open countryside, to the side of the formal gardens a gently sloping paddock leads to the Trent and Mersey canal and mooring for a pleasure boat. Viewing is a must.
