Don’t get caught napping if you want to rent Sleepy Cottage
THE Hambleden Valley, which incorporates Fingest and Turville, is an area of real beauty
THE Hambleden Valley, which incorporates Fingest and Turville, is an area of real beauty.
With its attractive olde worlde dwellings and gentle rolling hills, it is a property hotspot and you don’t have to buy to be able to live in one of its pretty homes because Sleepy Cottage, in School Lane, Turville, is available for rent.
The cottage offers three bedrooms, two bath/shower rooms, two receptions, a garden and a car port, not to mention its own legend.
Ellen Sadler, the Sleeping Girl of Turville, was the youngest daughter in a large family of farm hands who lived at this cottage. She was “asleep” for nine years of her life, suffering from an unaccountable deep state of drowsiness, from which she eventually made a full recovery.
Now named after its former inhabitant, Sleepy Cottage sits at the heart of the village, close to both the Bull and Butcher pub and the church, with views up towards the windmill known for its part in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Turville is also famous as a location for The Vicar of Dibley.
Available to rent through Savills (£1,795 per month unfurnished plus a one-off admin fee of £276 inc VAT. Other charges may apply). Call (01491) 843015.
