Testimony to this property’s popularity is its track record, attracting guests as a holiday let and generating worthwhile income through Sykes.

Alistair adds: “Whether a hugely convenient home, with Crewe for trains and Manchester for flights or an investment, with excellent earning capacity. Thyme Cottage is a unique opportunity. It is marketed with a guide price of £425,000.” Call Balfours Estate Agents Shrewsbury on 01743 353511.

Festival Flourishes With Fine Flavours


A weekend of extraordinary flavours, new foodie experiences and a great time is how Balfours Ludlow sales manager, Scott Kemsley, described Ludlow Food Festival.

Scott hailed the Festival a great success saying: “As sponsors we were able to provide hospitality tickets to some of our clients and I think it is true to say that we all had a ball.

When we are marketing or letting properties, at Balfours we are ever mindful of the important hub the kitchen and outdoor entertaining space have become – as has the proximity of a property to good local eateries. Today food and beverage excellence are part of a lifestyle package so many aspire to.”
