  • Description

    "Taken from a very wet Cumbria Way the guide book states this is the home of Chiltern Seeds. It was from 1980 until 2013 when the founders of the company Douglas and Bridget Bowden moved here from Buckinghamshire, Douglas died in 2010 and his wife decided to retire in 2012. This six bedroom south facing house in 2 acres of garden was put on the market in 2013 at £995,000. Their two daughters relocated back to the Chiltern's and the company is now based in Wallingford Oxfordshire" Photo by Martin Dawes, 2017.
