Chapel House is situated in an elevated position within the charming country hamlet of Breinton, just a few miles west of the city of Hereford. The parish of Brienton is bounded by the River Wye, an area that has changed little over time due to its high landscape value and fertile soils making it an important agricultural district. The area offers the ideal combination of a tranquil rural lifestyle yet with all the conveniences of having the extensive amenities of a thriving city, with mainline station, just a short drive away.

Chapel House

This lovely property was built in 1829, originally as a Chapel and School House for the area; gifted to the community by the Dowager Lady Southampton, who lived within the locality.
The spacious "L"-shaped modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room is lovely and light and benefits from an integrated cooker, hob and fridge, with patio doors leading directly out into the garden.
Good-sized utility/boot room has a lovely quarry-tiled floor and offers additional space for storage and white goods, and has direct access to the garden.
The well-proportioned sitting room, with its double aspect and feature open fireplace, is a lovely, cosy room and enjoys beautiful views over the adjoining farmland and beyond.
