Quiet relaxed village lifestyle

Ad ref# 2112871

A comfortable and relaxed place in the lovely and sought after village of Sutton Bonington. It is an ideal place for people looking for a relaxed country lifestyle in a large farmhouse with a large garden and a supportive live-in landlord.

Room 2 is available now. It is near the main stairs, with a fantastic view over the Soar Valley and garden to the West. It is a large room, about 14 feet square, close to the first floor wetroom.

Room 4 and 5 will both be available from 1st February. They are large doubles on the first floor, each about 4m by 4.5 m (13ft by 15ft).

Room 7 is available temporarily from now until February 7th, It's the top floor room facing over the Soar Valley.

Rent is paid one month in advance, and one month in hand.

Bills are fixed amount at £95 per calendar month per person. These include:
- Council tax, electricity, and gas
- Broadband, the TV license, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Amazon Music.
- Ground coffee, tea bags, sugar, and milk.
- Washing powder, toilet paper, cleaning materials, and bin bags
- Common cooking stuff: cooking oil, salt and pepper, and a large array of herbs and spices
- A cleaner for the common areas.

The heating is on from 06:30 to 22:00 except in the Summer. There is an Alexa in each room with which you can control the temperature by voice instruction, as well as a weekly schedule.

The maximum Local Housing Allowance for this area is £78 per week, £339 pcm. If you are on a low income or benefits, this is your maximum entitlement.

Pets are welcome. I will only have well behaved animals. Dogs must be friendly with other dogs and people, and must be carefully introduced to the ones already here. The only one around at the moment belongs to my daughter, who is only here about three weeks a year. There are cars in a top floor room, but they are kept in their room.

The house is a 1908 farmhouse built with great character and set in the village of Sutton Bonington. All the rooms are of a large scale - even the smallest. There are plenty of facilities, including a kitchen/dining/sitting room on the top floor, and a large traditional farmhouse kitchen on the ground floor. There is fast WiFi throughout the property. There is off road parking.

Smoking is absolutely not permitted in the house. In fact, it is illegal.

There is a large relaxed garden which backs on to open countryside. There is a basic swimming pool which is well used in the Summer when lodgers request it is filled (it is currently unused). The field immediately to the rear is usually for horses through a village sharing scheme - ask me if you want to know more.

The village is home to the out-of-town campus of Nottingham University. There is a free to all shuttle bus to Nottingham's campus and the tram stop at Clifton running every 20 minutes, passing Nottingham Trent Uni. The village also has a sports centre, a post office, two local pubs, a newsagents/off-licence, and a Doctor's helath practice all within a short walk. Loughborough Rowing Club is only a mile away. But if you want nightlife, this is probably not the place for you - even though the pubs do stay open very late if you are in them.

There is an hourly bus service between 0755 and 1800 linking East Midlands Airport, Nottingham, and Loughborough. Most people do most of their shopping in Loughborough.

There is a shower room with a toilet on the ground floor, a wet-room and toilet on the first floor, a large wet-room with toilet and a bathroom with toilet on the top floor. We are happy to have couples and children. There are three washing machines. I use the washing line for drying, but there is a tumble dryer.

We have significantly more kitchen space than most houses, including two kitchen cupboards per room, half a fridge per person and dedicated freezer shelves. Additional space is available outside.

For short lets of 1-3 months, I charge an additional two weeks. For 1-4 weeks, I add one week plus 25% of the weekly rate.

If you'd like to meet me and look around, please message me or phone me. I'll get back to you as quickly as possible.

Best Wishes, Mike Wright
