A labour of love for a fantastic local Warwickshire team led by Gary Hyde of Medwell Hyde Ltd, ‘The Homestead’ is one of the oldest ‘Crook Frame’ buildings in the country and has undergone a three year restoration by Medwell Hyde Ltd. Whose motto is ‘Passionate Beyond Belief’. Steeped in history the property has served many purposes over the years; as a bakers, post office and was the origin of one of the first bus routes in the area when, in the early 1800’s, the Rouse family started a horse and cart service to local residents from the property. Since taking possession of the property in 2016 'The Homestead' has been in a constant state of restoration and renovation to bring this historically important building into the 21st century and beyond, all whilst carefully observing the restrictions and guidelines of the Grade II listed status and in accordance with Stratford District Council. The end result has to be seen to be appreciated-a cliché if ever there was one!
