Owners Comments

“We have found the house very versatile in use both when our family was young and for entertaining our many friends in the area. We have been very happy in Lockerley which we have found to be very friendly and have had a very good social life. The only reason for leaving is to be closer to our son and his family in Cambridgeshire.”
