This thriving community has a village shop and post office, primary school, parish church and well regarded pub making this a popular destination for families. The Cathedral City of Hereford lies 5½ miles to the South, providing an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities along with an excellent range of additional schools including Hereford Cathedral School and the award winning Hereford Sixth Form College.

Gardens and grounds
The striking appearance of this family home is augmented by the roadside estate railings leading through to the gates to the side of the house onto the gravelled driveway. Surrounding the property to the side and the rear is a large paved terrace with a planted border leading directly onto the mainly lawned gardens which are South facing and interspersed with a variety of specimen trees. The garden is bordered by a range of mature hedgerows and trees with, in the far corner, a small pond providing a wonderful natural habitat for wildlife. The garden is a blank canvas for the keen gardener to create flower and shrub borders as well as play areas to suit. In all the land extends to 1.1 acres (0.44 ha).
Adjacent to the gates at the head of the driveway is the first of the two barns, which is timber clad and arranged as two rooms, the first being a gym and the second being two store rooms. Beyond the parking area is a further barn with a central covered area with, to the right a store room which was formerly the pigsty and to the left a store which could be adapted to a games room or workshop with steps up to a mezzanine area above. The rear of the barn is completed by a further store.
