A refurbished three bedroom semi-detached cottage with a superb garage / workshop plus other outbuildings, garden, orchard and paddock extending in all to approx. half an acre
The house is believed to date from the early 1900’s and it has been comprehensively refurbished in recent years.
The property is currently home to a successful licensed dog day care and home boarding business (currently licenced to board six dogs) which was recently awarded the highest star rating possible under DEFRA’s new star rating system by Central Bedfordshire Council ( 5 Stars) and in the agents opinion there is scope for a variety of uses, subject to any necessary permissions being obtained.
The property is situated on the fringe of the village of Upper Caldecote where there is a village shop, Post Office, junior school, church and recreational park. The property is extremely accessible to the A1 dual carriageway and just over one mile from the centre of Biggleswade which offers a good range of day to day shops and amenities as well as a main line station with direct fast trains to London Kings Cross, London St Pancras, Peterborough, Gatwick Airport and the south coast.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
