This weekend 2 people said to me that Autumn was their favourite season; this surprised me as I thought most people preferred the warmer months over Summer or Spring, but when they explained why I started to understand where they were coming from…
Living in Chorleywood and the surrounding villages such as Sarratt and Chenies, you are truly spoilt for English countryside and when Autumn hits and the leaves fall, the arrays of Autumnally colours are really beautiful. We have been lucky enough to have a very warm October and local residents have really been making the most of it; wandering down to the River Chess last week, Sarratt was bustling with children, families and dog walkers enjoying the Chess Valley Walk.
This weekend the Black Horse pub in Chorleywood was over-spilling with people drinking real ale and queuing for their Sunday roast dinner. For those just visiting, one weekend exploring the countryside walks and old English pubs leaves them smitten and soon enough registering with Sewell & Gardner for a property to buy or rent. For Sewell & Gardner the trouble we have is that most people also want to stay here, so we do not have enough properties to match the increasing demand. However, we cannot complain, living in such a beautiful area where you get to appreciate fresh air, rolling hills and vast woodlands, whilst also being able to jump on the M25 (we have 2 junctions!) or step onto the train into London (we have the Metropolitan tube line and the Chiltern National rail service), you really do get to appreciate the best of both worlds.
At Sewell & Gardner we are hoping the weather remains good for bonfire night, this year we are sponsoring the fireworks extravaganza in Sarratt taking place at King George V playing fields with activities kicking off at 6pm and the fireworks beginning at 7.30pm. We are looking forward to seeing all the kids in their fancy dress costumes and the various Guy Fawkes before the competition winners are chosen and our donated prizes are handed over! Lets hope the rain holds off for us this year!
