“The Patch has been in our family for fifty years and the home to my wife and I for two years, the place holds many cherished memories. We have completely refurbished and extended the property to a high standard. The location is excellent on many levels, most especially by virtue of the 270-degree views with no properties overlooking us. It’s a wonderfully private home. The village is a welcoming and friendly place from where it’s easy to reach excellent towns with good shopping centres. It’s only a 10-minute drive from the A5, which connects with the M54, M6 and M1 motorways.”

"This spacious house which offers a warm welcome. All rooms are well-proportioned, with all five bedrooms having great storage and exceptional views. The master bedroom has an excellent en suite, and the ground floor bedroom has a separate shower room and an attached lounge with access to a rear patio via French doors. This area lends itself to a number of uses, depending on requirements.”

“The large kitchen/family room is light airy with large glazed doors offering uninterrupted views over beautiful rolling countryside – this large space allows for sizeable gatherings.”

“The large plot features gardens which are predominantly laid to lawn with flowerbeds, a vegetable patch and porcelain patios for easy maintenance – the outdoor space can be easily maintained but has the potential to satisfy a keen gardener. There is a perfect feeling of peace and tranquillity here, with an abundance of wildlife to enjoy. Set well away from traffic the air quality is excellent.”

“The neighbours in Back Lane are all very friendly and love to stop for a chat, everyone looks out for each other. Worthen has a well-stocked shop, medical centre, vibrant village hall, local walkers club, and more. It hosts an excellent pre and primary school and there is a local bus service to a secondary school at Pontesbury. The Cock Inn at Brockton offers excellent ales, gins and pub grub. It’s a very chilled and social community to live in with an ultra-low crime rate.”*
