I remember just two things about Yeovil when I drove through a couple of decades ago.

1. A car-park in a side street had charges. I'm not used to it in Aussi country towns.

2. Beautiful fish and chips. Not that I'm a connoisseur, but I was in England . . .

I have a great love of outbuildings.
I have read many positive things about Lincolnshire and feel that it will be an up-and-coming area to live with affordable properties. Not quite there yet though.
I walked up and down the street but couldn't find it. I did find the Co-op though.
Did you see those houses that if you open the door you could be hit by a Lorrie?
Agree good value!

An "awful" lot of house and buildings.

A beautiful part of the world well located off the A1 not far from Grantham, for London.

Castle Bytham is also in this area - Beautiful Villages of England
I'm not keen on the countryside of Lincolnshire, though properties there are more affordable than south of London. My sister lives in a 12 room Victorian house in a village near Lincoln, a nice enough house with a big garden, but there didn't seem to be any direct public transport from Lincoln to anywhere.

My brother owned this house for many years, plus the other buildings to the rear. http://tinyurl.com/3wwzrux It is on a bend, and during a visit by my mum, a lorry crashed into the front.

So I just figured out what a rental would be for 60 months and maybe equal to closing costs on buying a home? Maybe oerstating tha!

Hows this for a rental?

It should be very peaceful because your neighbors on the one side are always asleep because its a cemetery.

I'm now looking at Eastbourne . . . . .

But these places don't seem to be near enough to shops etc. That's a problem where I'm living now without a car.

Just past the Coop, before the White Lion. Fronts onto street.

It's a magnificent property... and a real studio. Haven't seen many of those.

Well they all have nice gardens, especially the one you singled out. That's the kind of yard I would love to have but it wouldn't be all lawn for long; there's the orchard, the berry patch and some decent sized veggie gardens to go in as well as the flower beds and the rose garden! They could have saved their money on that b----y gravel as far as I am concerned.

...and just for good measure there's a big box store across the street.

My brother was into ceramics, and at Marton Farmhouse he had his own gallery. This link shows the property better. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-...-30037573.html

He continued with ceramics when he moved into a converted barn a couple of miles from Marton, unfortunately his kiln in another building was destroyed in a big fire, and he gave up.
