About our home

We live in a large, traditional English home that was built 175 years ago. It’s the ideal place to relax and enjoy the rural surroundings. There are fantastic views of the local countryside from the large garden and there is plenty of outside seating as well as a hammock and BBQ. The house is secluded, with a church on one side. At the front of the house is a large parking area (enough for six cars!) Downstairs, you will find traditional stone floors - the stone is from local Welsh quarries. There is a large, modern kitchen with breakfast bar, traditional larder, and dining area - a great area for socialising. In the living room is a tv and X-box and there are French doors that lead into the garden. There's also a log burner for chilly evenings in the living room. There's a computer room with a brand new PC. We also have a bar with sofas, dartboard, WC and optics so you have your own English pub! (There is also an actual pub two minutes walk away!)
Upstairs there are three large bedrooms plus a good size spare bedroom. The bathroom has recently been remodelled and has a bath and power shower.
Outside, there is a utility room where the washer and dryer are situated. There is a very large garden with a gazebo, fire pit and hammock, as well as outdoor seating. We love our home and I’m sure you would too...

Where is it?


We live in Hereford, voted by one of our national newspapers as 'the finest county in England - Where else can you find the prettiest villages in the UK, stunning countryside, amazing pubs, historic churches, ancient woodlands, great walks, a world-class cathedral, fascinating market towns and some of the friendliest people in the world?' We love the area - its beautiful countryside awards great quality of life. Our house looks onto beautiful rural views and our street is a sought after area of the city - it's a quiet area but everyone is very helpful. If you walk five minutes up the road you are in a wooded area and you can follow footpaths for miles through the countryside. There is a pub two minutes walk away and a shop fifteen minutes walk away. Herefordshire is in the beautiful Wye Valley, a rural area with plenty to do, including swimming, kayaking, cycling and mountain climbing. It is also known for its fantastic produce and you can happily spend your days going from one farm shop/ deli to another tasting the wonderful cheese, meat, cider and beer on offer. We are famous for our Hereford beef. The city of Hereford is charming, a lovely place to wander about. There are lovely old streets to explore but also a shopping centre with six screen cinema. There is a good range of restaurants ranging from the usual chains like Pizza Hut to award winning independent eateries set up by local people. There are also fine dining restaurants including a Michelin starred restaurant. You'll also love our festivals which range from the world famous Hay Literature festival to Newent onion festival!
If you travel out of Hereford, you can either visit the stunning Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and Wales (we are right on the border). or you can visit cities like Bristol and Birmingham. There are also lots of local castles to visit. Our cathedral contains the Mappa Mundi, one of the oldest maps in the world. Hereford is in the 'Heart of England' area:
Puzzle Wood is a short drive away and was recently used as a backdrop to some scenes in The Force Awakens (Star Wars).
