The property market is no joke, and it’s a sure-fire thing that most of us are going to struggle to ever get our hands on any kind of decent sized London property in the next couple of decades. Unless, of course, you have a spare £1.5 million hanging around for a 2 bed home in central London. But! Fear not, because as we get older, the hustle and bustle of city life can make us want to grind to a halt and escape to the countryside. So, if you’re that way inclined, gentlemen, look no further.
