Uplands Orchard

Uplands Orchard nestles on the outskirts of the rural village of Wellington Heath, in an elevated position in East Herefordshire and within a short drive of the popular market town of Ledbury. Renowned for its beautiful countryside, this area of Herefordshire is characterised by a diverse farming landscape with undulating countryside and ample woodland. This property offers a desirable rural idyll combined with excellent communication links to the rest of the country.

Uplands Orchard


This detached period property dates from the early 20th century and sits within 2 acres of grounds, bordered by productive farmland.
Situated on the outskirts of Wellington Heath and close to Ledbury, this well-located property has excellent access to main line rail and arterial road links.
The house was latterly redesigned to incorporate a stunning modern garden room which links the kitchen with the sitting room, creating a very impressive living space for entertaining or just enjoying the garden.
The 4 oven Aga kitchen is of excellent standard and is complemented by the generous garden room. A pantry and utility room to the rear provide ancillary domestic space adjacent to the kitchen. There is a separate electric hob and oven built-in, plus an instant hot water tap.
Real oak flooring blends from the kitchen, garden room to the sitting room and entrance hall.

The everyday access at the rear of the house opens to a useful boot room/utility boiler room, a great practical space for dogs and muddy boots. There is a pantry adjacent and a smart cloakroom by the entrance hall.
A formal study and informal sitting room provide a secluded working space with the entrance hall and stairs linking the rest of the house.
To the first floor are 3 well appointed double bedrooms with a family bathroom and a spacious landing with study desk overlooking the garden.
The main bedroom suite provides a sumptuous space, a large double room with a separate dressing room leading to smart en-suite bathroom.
From the hall, stairs lead down to a lined wine cellar, this tanked space providing dry storage.
By the back door there is a detached, secure tool room for garden machinery plus a gardener's WC.

The Outside


Uplands Orchard is set back from Burtons Lane with a gated entrance splay and short private drive. A gravelled sweep provides ample parking and divides the paddock from the immaculate gardens.
Opposite the house is an attractive 2 storey garage which provides 3 bay secure parking and workshop to the ground floor.
A central entrance lobby and stairs lead to the first-floor guest accommodation. This self-contained annexe has been used for family, guests, and rental income generation.
There is one large double bedroom, a bathroom, and a living room with mini kitchenette. This is ideal for short stays or for independent guests.
A separate tractor barn, with garden and log stores sits to the rear of the house.
A small paddock sits west of the house and garage, with a timber tractor barn and log store adjacent to the house; ideal as a store for garden and grounds maintenance equipment.
The well designed and attractive garden lies east of the house and presents a beautiful frame to the house. The well-stocked and private garden offers a beautiful living environment and a peaceful setting. There is ample lawned ground and a summerhouse at the end of the garden.
