An additional 6 acres of grazing with stabling, manage, water and electricity may be available by separate negotiation.

22A The Slade is a beautifully presented home set in a peaceful location on the edge of the popular village of Clophill in Bedfordshire. The quiet rural situation offers immediate access to stunning countryside, and the property is surrounded by open woodland inhabited with lots of wildlife.

The property itself has been fully renovated and extended by current owners 10 years ago. It has a cosy, rustic farmhouse feel with facilities to favour those who enjoy the great outdoors they say. The ground floor offers a large living room and a kitchen diner, both with doors to the gardens and multi-fuel burning stoves. We love the lounge, which with the fire roaring away in the winter is a magnet for all our animals to gather round. You cant beat the welcoming feel of the AGA when you walk in on a cold day the owners say.

In addition to its cosy living spaces, the property boasts 4 bedrooms. We love the master bedroom the owners continue particularly on a summers morning when you can lay in bed with the big doors open and hear the birds singing. You feel like you are out in the garden, not in the house. The views from these bedroom doors are a personal favourite, looking across The Slade into the back garden and to the side of the house.

Outside, the gardens are well cared for and have been much enjoyed by the current owners. The decking area is a lovely place to sit they say, as even if the weather is not nice you can sit in the garden without worrying if its raining. Its also lovely to sit in the dark and listen to the owls! The gardens also include an outbuilding, which could be an excellent office and garage.

The local area is well served for the ultimate in convenience in a pretty village setting. The area is friendly with a neighbourly feel. We are lucky to have a traditional village pub just around the corner which serves excellent lunches, a larger pub which serves food and drink all day and an Italian restaurant situated on the High Street. say the owners. There is a shop, post office, church and school all within the village and all are within walking distance from The Slade. Venturing out of the village, there is yet more reason to love the area. The immediate countryside is great for leisure activities such as walking, riding, cycling say the owners, and anybody with an interest in wildlife or photography will be in their element. The house is situated on the Greensand Ridge trail which is a very popular route for walkers.

It is difficult to pin point just one favourite room or feature as there are so many lovely things about the property. We love the bedroom, the lounge and the decking area alike, each with its own purpose and character!

We are outdoor people and spend a lot of time in the open air. The garden reflects this with seating arranged throughout to follow the sun during the day. At the top of the garden is our summerhouse with a view across the village with hardly a roof-top in sight! Our deck area is covered and accessed from the lounge or dining area. From the lounge and dining area with the French doors open you can be inside with a feel of being outside.

We have taken part in Clophill Open Gardens which takes place every two years and is a very popular attraction to villagers and outsiders alike. During the Queens Jubilee celebrations The Slade had a street party and we turned our garage into a traditional pub style venue in which to host the evenings entertainment.

We will greatly miss the unique environment that we have grown to love over 30 years of living in the The Slade.
