For those of you who don't know we have moved from Birmingham to Sawbridgeworth in Hertfordshire.

Jon had been commuting to London during August and part of September for work until we found somewhere suitable to move to. Sawbridgeworth is the answer!

'Sawbo' as it is known by the locals is a really beautiful small town of approximately 8500 people and 13, count them, 13, pubs! The town is 27 miles from London and 15 miles from Stansted Airport so the opportunities for travel are very good. The nearest sizeable towns are Harlow to the south and Bishops Stortford to the north.

Our house is in a barn conversion which has been turned into 4 houses. The building backs on to the River Stort and our neighbours have their narrow boat moored at the botom of their garden! We are in the middle of the building with and open plan upstairs with exposed beams throughout. Downstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom.

We love it, the location and the fact that we only use the car very occasionally.

The local area (East Herts & Essex borders) is also beautiful with lots of tiny villages. We can walk along the river to Bishops Stortford ot to Harlow and enjoy exploring the coutryside when we get the chance. Some of the nearby villages have some interesting names!
