It has a friendly community, and the village hall hosts a variety of events including an award winning monthly produce market. Just a few miles down the road the larger village of Dymock benefits from a village pub, small shop, cricket and golf clubs. There are excellent village primary schools on the doorstep and bus services to the local high schools. The Cathedral cities of Gloucester, 17 miles Southeast and Hereford, 17 miles Northwest both offer an extensive range of retail and cultural opportunities and independent and grammar schools.

Most noteworthy is the intriguing 3D ceiling and the remarkably designed stairs that flow to the first floor, offering a bespoke feature against the backdrop of the contemporary panelled wall, with disguised doors that lead to the snug and utility rooms. At the flick of a switch an ingeniously designed and concealed drop down film projector and screen descend from the ceiling and with surround sound you are all set for some fantastic movie nights. Offering a cosy additional focal point to the room is a modern, curved, wood burner, framed by feature panelling. Finally, space for a large dining table and chairs to the back of the room is enhanced by floor to ceiling French doors allowing light to flood in and leading onto the handsome Indian sandstone patio.

Kitchen/Breakfast/Family Area – The magnificent open and bright kitchen flows naturally from the living room.

From the master bedroom suite, a set of paddle stairs leads to a good sized mezzanine, giving the bedroom additional space and a luxurious feel with contemporary metal balustrade framing the area. This space is ideal for use as a study or reading room and has a door off it which leads to the plant room, housing all the equipment for water storage and ventilation.
