The gar­den grounds in­clude a dou­ble garage, ma­ture trees and shrubs which flower through­out the chang­ing sea­sons and a pleas­ant decked area with seat­ing.

The slop­ing lawn leads up to a small wooded area and the orig­i­nal Vic­to­rian sum­mer house, and there is plenty of space for hide and seek.

“The gar­dens are great – big enough, but not too huge to be un­man­age­able,” says Linda. “We have loved liv­ing here and it’s been great to find out snip­pets of the house’s his­tory.

“We were out paint­ing the gates one day and a gentle­man who lives nearby popped in to tell us the gates were just about the only orig­i­nal ones left in Busby be­cause the rest had been taken for me­tal dur­ing the war. He told us ours had been hid­den away and had sur­vived!”

She adds: “It’s great to have those lo­cal his­tory con­nec­tions. We will miss West­wood Lodge – it’s a very easy house to live in.”

The rooms of­fer space and light, while the win­dows open out on to beau­ti­ful gar­dens
