Owner's perspective - "I’ve loved living at Betwixt which has been the most perfect cottage in the heart of Marston Montgomery, a friendly village with a thriving community. Although a traditional cottage it’s spacious inside and out, which has allowed me to have family and friends over with ample space to entertain inside and plenty of parking outside – the long driveway has been such a bonus and not usually found with a cottage. Betwixt is cosy, comfortable and welcoming all year but especially on winter nights, snuggled up in the lounge with my log burner has to be my favourite time of year here! It’s surrounded by beautiful countryside which over the years I’ve spent many happy hours walking my dogs. And yet it is so convenient for the towns of Ashbourne and Uttoxeter and easy access to the A50 which has been so important for me. Betwixt really has been a wonderful place to live."
