Set on a small country estate with a working farm, overlooking the glorious Herefordshire countryside, this property is bursting with special features and boasts the beauty of the great outdoors on the doorstep.

The traditional village of Madley is within a mile’s walk and offers a well-stocked village store and traditional inn, fish and chip shop, plus a 9-hole golf course, tennis courts and fishing. The area offers great walking with footpaths and quiet lanes to explore. You can picnic alongside the River Wye or tackle Hay Bluff, Black Mountains or Brecon Beacons and it’s ideal for cyclists and canoeing. Take a trip to one of the many local towns for a farmers’ market or to browse the independent shops. Hay-on-Wye is famed for books and the annual international literary festival, while the market towns of Monmouth, Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye, Kington, and Leominster are all within 25 miles and offer castles and historic monuments to explore.

A stunning view greets you as you step inside this elegant home which has been beautifully finished to an exceptional standard. It offers the perfect backdrop for your countryside stay with a great deal of space for relaxing and entertaining. Settle down in the drawing room enjoying the warmth of the wood burner. The adjoining garden room is perfect for relaxing with a good book. The spectacular kitchen has a large island unit, a walk-in original pantry with cold slab and French doors to the rear garden and a large opening that leads directly into the dining room plus a cosy cinema room with a sound system that’s there for your enjoyment. The utility boasts an extra dishwasher to save you time and there is a cloakroom. Upstairs in the main house, you will find four bedrooms all of which offer a touch of luxury. There’s a super-king-size room with an en-suite bathroom with separate shower and WC. Two super-king-size rooms (one can be made into twin beds on request) plus a king-size with en-suite shower.

There are super views across the open fields and onto the Black Mountains and a private hot tub where you can enjoy catching up with everyone under the stars.
