There is always a huge demand for old farmhouses, especially if they have some land, as well as the archetypal country cottage. However, prospective purchasers are advised not to be too inflexible when it comes to property type. There are some super barn conversions out there, many offering a great combination of modern styling and original features, as well as some great new builds which can be so much more economical to run than old properties.
People sometimes miss out on the benefits of village life by being too definite about the type of property they want. A home is what you make it. It’s the surroundings - the village schools, pubs, community spirit and so-on - that are most important.
To avoid the feelings of isolation that can be a problem for newcomers to village life, getting involved in community life is vital. Try and send your children to the village school, go to meetings and clubs in the village hall and - most importantly - get into the habit of saying ‘good morning’ to neighbours.
Hunters’ experts also advise checking-out mobile and broadband connections, public transport, plus the proximity of local pubs, shops and schools before buying.
