Enjoying an elevated position with panoramic views over rural Worcestershire, this detached 18th-century former stable block enjoys its own enclosed lawned gardens with an open outlook across fields, making a very peaceful and relaxing holiday retreat. Set in the grounds of the owner’s working mixed farm, it has been carefully converted, retaining a wealth of exposed beams, and provides very spacious and comfortable accommodation ideal for family reunions or get-togethers.
The area offers some beautiful scenery for walking, riding or cycling, with Clee Hill, the Bromyard Downs and the Wyre Forest all easily reached, while Offa’s Dyke and the Stretton Hills are within 40 minutes’ drive. There are many places of interest to visit. Just 4½ miles away, the market town of Tenbury Wells, beside the River Teme, has a good choice of pubs, restaurants and shops.
