About Mick & Jo Jones
We consider ourselves privileged to own these grade 2 listed cottages, one of which was built in 1766, in the village of Wootton Northamptonshire. Wootton village is an ancient Saxon settlement and has other village buildings dating from this time. Our properties were lived in and used by many different people and families as working homes, small holdings and stables. Notably a land agent once lived in the main cottage and collected rent from the local tenant farmers. He kept his pony and trap in the building which is now known as The Coach house. We have lived in the village all our lives and have travelled to many places in the world but always look forward to coming back home. We believe Northamptonshire is an undiscovered County and we would like to share it with others.
Mick & Jo Jones purchased this Cottage in 1992
Why Mick & Jo Jones chose Wootton
We were very lucky to have had the chance to buy this property after admiring it for many years. When we bought the property it required a great deal of TLC which has taken us over 20 years. We also had to accept the responsibility of looking after listed buildings which can be costly but also very self rewarding.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the property because of its central location and the excellent road and rail links. We can travel in most directions and within an hour be in a different County, Village,Town, City or the surrounding countryside enjoying the differences that they all have to offer.
