May one interject a word of warning here?
If you need to work full time to pay the mortgage on a property with a large garden then you do not have the time, normally, to do the work on the garden. Our young neighbours have discovered this and their half acre plot is rapidly going back to weed infested scrub, as they both work long hours to get enough money to live.
We managed with our 1 acre garden purely and simply because I was retired and could work on it full time.
Now we are both getting on and feeling less fit, this garden is beginning to be hard to maintain as well.
Sorry to be a bit negative, but it is something which always strikes me when watching these Move to the Country programmes on TV. Especially with folks who have never owned a large garden before.
