Tessa and I can see ourselves living here for a long time; we have already recommended The General to our friends so perhaps we will see even more friendly faces in the Bristol area soon. City & Country was hugely helpful and efficient in making our wishes come true and to find a home in such a unique building in a wonderful setting is very exciting for us both.
