Washpool Cottage

We had thought about moving in 2020 and had briefly put Willow bank on the market. I asked one of the agents how much he thought it would reduce the value if the plot at the side were not included. He thought it would make little or no difference, even without the plot the garden would still be large and as a lot purchasers did not want a very big garden. We decided to investigate the possibility of building a house on the plot.
