Situation and Description
This delightful property, in our view, offers the best of both worlds peacefully situated on a small country lane yet only minutes from the historic Cathedral city of Hereford. At Hereford there are an extensive range of facilities and services along with a main line train station offering easy access to other parts of the country. Lugwardine with its sister village of Bartestree, have thriving communities and provide a number of immediate facilities which include the highly regarded St Marys RC Secondary School, a community and sports centre, a shop, and a primary school and much more.
Tidnor Cross Cottage itself is a very pretty Grade II listed cottage that has been extended and improved over the years. The current owners have also maintained and improved the house to a high standard and a separate detached annex or holiday cottage makes the whole property very versatile indeed. There are a number of attractive period features, with some of the rooms having exposed timbers and brickwork, whilst a very well-appointed modern kitchen and large conservatory blend well with the existing character. Planning permission has recently been passed to extend the main cottage which would create considerable potential, if required, and detailed information is available on request.
Approached from a small country lane by its own driveway, a front door leads into a welcoming reception hall with a quarry tiled floor and door to useful cloakroom. The sitting room lies at the front of the cottage and is a comfortable space to relax with a period fireplace and fitted wood burner for those colder evenings, and has a door to outside. There is a separate dining room for entertaining, which currently doubles as a study, and a well-appointed kitchen breakfast room with plenty of light and space as well as plenty of cupboard space, a central workstation and a range of fitted appliances making this room without doubt the main hub of the house. A door leads to a good-sized conservatory which enjoys direct access to outside.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms at the front of the cottage, each with their own character, a good-sized shower room and a third bedroom with a range of fitted wardrobes and cupboards at the rear.
On the other side of the main drive lies ‘The Mews’ which is a very well appointed and spacious one bedroomed annex or holiday cottage. Ideal for extended family or for providing an income, this very smart brick built two storey cottage has been well designed and has its own parking space, sun terrace and easy access to the garden. The accommodation includes a sitting room and separate kitchen/ breakfast room as well as a double bedroom with en suite and a large balcony on the first floor.
Outside, the gardens have been landscaped and are in the main laid to lawn with large and well stocked borders, together with sun terraces and two Border Oak gazebos, creating very useful covered outside space. The gardens are enclosed by mature hedging, brick walling and close boarded fencing with an open outlook over farmland on the remaining side. There is a very useful and sizeable timber garage 20’ 7 x 10’ 4, with adjoining woodstore, a greenhouse and garden shed.
From Hereford leave the city on the A438 sign posted to Ledbury and continue for 1 mile to the village of Lugwardine. Proceed past the school and at the church turn right into Rhystone Lane and continue for approximately ¾ of a mile. Tidnor Cross Cottage will then be found on the left-hand side.
