Gearing up for the Tour of Britain
Gearing up for the Tour of Britain After sterling performances from British cyclists at the 2012 Olympics and more recently the Tour De France, British cycling has been thrust into the limelight, setting the stage for the upcoming Tour of Britain. In two weeks time, 16 teams of 114 elite cyclists will embark on the Tour, covering over 1100km in eight days and passing through a number of areas that Jackson-Stops & Staff offices cover. Situated just 15 minutes north of Kendal, the finish point of the second stage of the race, High House in Longsleddale is a charming farmhouse that blends 17th century character with 21st century comforts, thanks to a recent renovation by the current owners. Most rooms enjoy views of the picturesque valley below, and there is also a converted annexe with separate kitchen. The property is on the market for 675,000 with our Hale office, for more information please click here. Enjoying elevated views across the Dartmoor countryside, Middle Howton is an attractive thatched farmhouse, just over a mile away from the town of Moretonhampstead, which the tour passes through on its sixth stage between Sidmouth and the summit finish at Haytor. The original house dates 17th century and is well placed for a range of nearby well performing schools, both in the cathedral city of Exeter and Stover. The property is on the market for 925,000 with our Exeter office, for more information please click here. Situated a five minute drive away (or 10 minute cycle) from the midpoint of the Epsom to Guildford leg of the tour, Clandon Manor is perfectly placed to enjoy the action on this penultimate stage. A beautifully restored farmhouse set in the village of East Clandon, the property has six bedrooms as well as four reception rooms, including spacious games room with cinema room attached. The property is on the market with our Weybridge office for 3,250,000, for more information please click here.
