Renting in London: What different amounts of rent get you across the country compared to the capital Source: Mirror... read more »


Our property was a 'one off' house type and every agent that attempted to value it and sell it struggled as there was no other property to compare it to.

Then along came Country Places and Alex pleaded with us to give him the chance to market it. As it had been on the market for over 18 months we weren't expecting much but let him have the opportunity to see what happened.

Within weeks we had several viewings and within the month 2 interested parties, one of which were in the position to make the right offer and the house was sold.

Impressed as we were by Alex's knowhow and Country Places professional attitude to the sale, we were bowled over by his enthusiasm and dedication to seeing the sale completed. He worked tirelessly on behalf of the entire 'chain' to get the sale finished. He spoke by phone, he Emailed and he texted anyone and everyone associated with the sale on a daily and often bi-daily basis until he got whatever issue resolved.

So we would highly recommend Country Places and especially Alex and he/they will be the first port of call in any future property dealings that we have.

He was a pleasure to deal with and we thank him for all his hard work in our sale.

Excellent service from valuation to sale (STC). Actively marketed from day one and sold (STC) within two weeks. Alex kept us fully informed at every stage which was extremely helpful and reassuring as we were selling the property on behalf of a friend. We would highly recommend Alex’s and Country Places’ services.

Here at Country Places we strive towards achieving one overriding goal: to deliver the highest level of service in the hope that you will return to us in future and recommend us to your friends. Our staff have over 10 years' combined experience in both sales and lettings so you can be sure you'll be in safe hands.

Whether you're looking for a home to sell or are a landlord searching for your ideal tenant, we're confident we can help. Most of all we're confident you'll be completely satisfied with our service.


We decided some time ago that to move forward with the times we would need to move away from our shopfront office.   The majority of enquiries have always come through the internet or by use of the phone and the days of having an office have, we feel, long passed.   Because overheads are less we can pass cost savings onto our clients and also improve the level as service, as we concentrate more on the fundamentals of lettings and sales instead of being bogged down by incidental administration.   We're available by both phone and email.   

So why not find out how we can help? Simply call us or, better still, come to our office for a coffee and a chat.  We'll be so happy to meet with you.

When you use our service you can be sure we'll do all we can to maximise your property's full rental potential. We'll also take a responsible approach to managing what is probably your most precious asset.

Whether you're looking to rent a home for six months or longer, Country Places will endeavour to find you a suitable property and guide you through the process as smoothly as possible.

At Country Places we're here to help. Nothing is too much trouble for us. We'll endeavour to guide you through the often daunting process of selling or letting your home so that the process moves as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
