Located in a small enclave Hamlet known as Hope-Under-Dinmore, the Cottages are set back on the edge of the village, accessed via a shared private track from the lane.

While the city of Hereford lies 8 miles away and the market town of Leominster is only 4 miles further North.

Sitting Room – beyond an original wooden door lies the sitting room, awash with character and a snug cosy feel. This charming room enjoys opposing dual aspect windows and is completed by a wood burner stove within a tiled back fireplace, with wood mantel atop a raised quarry tile hearth.
Dining Room – across the hallway and with pleasing cohesion is a wonderful space at the heart of the home, featuring an original sash window; with its views out to the garden, and in the chimney breast, an original Victorian range fireplace with wooden mantle above. A side alcove provides space for a Welsh dresser or chest-of-drawers, with a separate glazed door opening into the kitchen.
Kitchen – part of the more recent cottage extension, a charming kitchen/breakfast room with simple yet homely, shaker style units and breakfast bar, featuring a beautiful exposed Neo-Gothic stone wall. There is an integrated electric double oven and hob, with space for a tall fridge-freezer and plumbing for a dishwasher. A pretty baronial window peeping into the dining room and wooden double-glazed window sits atop the sink, looking out to the patio and gardens beyond.
Garden Room – stepping from the entrance hall, leads into the wooden frame garden room, an ideal spot for reading, basking in those sublime views wandering out into the garden through the French doors, or onto the patio through separate sliding doors.
Bathroom – with a modern white suite comprising of a panelled bath with centre taps, tiled surround, pedestal wash basin and low flush WC.
Utility Room/Shower Room – forming part of the extension, this handy space doubles up as a boot room, with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble-dryer, and leading to the shower room, with full glazed cubical and electric shower.
Bedroom 1 – the first double bedroom retains its original stripped wooden flooring and inset fireplace with wooden mantle. Duel aspect windows frame views over the front grounds and onwards to Queens Wood. Offering plenty of room for a double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers within each of the fireplace alcoves.
Bedroom 2 & Attic Room – a large single room which would host a double bed if required. This room would make a fantastic child’s bedroom, or home office. A door opens to stairs to the attic space with Velux window, which has been fully decorated and houses a double bed.
The highly productive garden has at its heart an attached greenhouse and stables, surrounded by soft fruit trees which span the back half of the grounds. Manicured lawns and mature trees, shrubs and plants, litter the grounds, with immediate access to a large drive which house several cars at once. Originally two stables and tack room, now offers workshop space through the glass greenhouse.
From the property, it’s a 1 min walk down the lane to the acreage, which has been split into two fields, divided by fencing and two steel five-bar gates. The first paddock has a small field barn which could easily be reinstated for horse and pony use, with further productive mixed fruit orchards to the rear.
With another meadow adjacent through farm gates, all extending to approximately 1.3 acres. This could be used for riding, but also potentially for opening up glamping sites or development; subject to the correct permissions, to enjoy the glorious views across an undulating pastoral landscape.
