About Suzie Windscheffel

I am married and live with my husband, son and daughter in a village, on the border of Worcestershire and the North Cotswolds. I have always had a passion for property and have worked in all sectors of the property industry, in between bringing up the children. When we go away, we love to have a light, spacious modernised property, that is clean with a hint of luxury about it. We like to be situated in a rural location, with easy access to the areas and activities we want to indulge in. So hopefully, this house ticks those boxes and if these things are also importatnt to you - will equally fulfill your requirements. We very much appreciate any feedback - good or bad, to allow us to put things right if we have got anything wrong!

Outside of work, I love to tread the boards at our local Am Dram Society, and equally enjoy watching how the Professionals do it on stage, just as much!!

Living in the Cotswodls, we are spoiled for good walks with lovely views, and we all enjoy walking our loyal, and aged labrador, April! I have made up a folder of easy to follow walks with photos, and put each one in a plastic sleeve, so you can take it with you, wherever you choose to go.

Travelling far and wide is also on top of our agenda, including enjoying and exploring our own beautiful country. Theres so much to do and see out there...!!

Suzie Windscheffel purchased this house in 2015

Why Suzie Windscheffel chose Tewkesbury district

As I mentioned in my last description, we love property which is light and airy, modern inside with up to date appliances, and situated in a rural location with a stunning view to wake up to every day. When we made the decision last summer that we would like to purchase a holiday property, it was quite fortuitous, that a builder was looking to build such a place in the nearby village of Alderton. A peaceful village - with a pub, walking distance away!! That of course was a pure conincidence!! Ha ha. Having seen the plans, it just said 'Buy me'! We have not been disappointed and hope that you enjoy your stay there.

Please note, because it is a new build, there are still properties being built, approx 200m from the rear of the property. We are informed the final build should all be finished by September, most of the roofs are now on.

What makes this house unique

The immediate feature that pulled at our heart strings was the fabulous views to the front of the property. The master bedroom and Bed 2 overlooks this view, and to wake up every day to that aspect, for us, would just get our day off to the best start!! Equally, when you open the front door, you are immediately greeted with this sea of green in front of you! It is such a feelgood factor!

Suzie was very helpful preparing us for our stay and ensured that the house was ready for us on arrival. Even had chocolate brownies and tea bags milk and sugar. Superb stay in a lovely house in a lovely village. Highly recommended.

A fabulous property, in pristine condition with gorgeous decor!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days here. Facilities are top notch, all you could wish for in a holiday home.

We enjoyed trips to Croome Park, on our way to the property, Broadway tower and Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park whilst there and Surely Castle on our way home.

Highly recommended and we really enjoyed the brownies!

This property had everything we could possibly want for our week-end stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property lived up to the description as seen on-line. It was very modern, clean and a pleasure to stay in. It was large enough for seven adults to occupy comfortably. Everything was of a high quality and the beds very comfortable.

The welcome breakfast items and homemade brownies were very much appreciated and a lovely touch.

We took advantage of the walking leaflets in the file and walked up to the Broadway Tower which was well worth the effort and a must to visit whether by walking or by car. Broadway, itself, is a beautiful place to visit as is Snowshill Manor and gardens (National Trust).

DONT LOOK ANY FURTHER and its even better than it looks!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our only reservations about booking this stunning property was that it looked too good to be true............. Well it isn't..... It's even better!!!!

We stayed for a long weekend with 4 adults and 4 children aged 6-8. It couldn't be more child friendly with the extremely safe and secure garden (it's even larger than the photos show), and with there being a playground and large park literally across the road. We played cricket, football etc....

There's every kitchen appliance you'd ever need and appliances of excellent quality. Large indoor and outdoor dining areas. And the owner kindly left eggs butter bread milk etc.... as a complimentary welcome pack! But if you don't want to cook there's a lovely pub/restaurant well within walking distance with children.

The decor and furnishings are beautiful, plush carpets throughout, the beds are extremely comfortable, bedding is amazing, some of the best nights sleeps we've had. Bathrooms stunning. Lounge extremely comfortable.

Surrounding areas are so beautiful with exceptional walks from the doorstep and further afield.

Would recommend to friends and family those with and without children. A truly exception holiday house!
