Thymes is situated in a lovely quiet and private position and was historically likely to have been a farm-workers bungalow. Surrounded by the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, renowned for its orchards, hop fields and farming communities, the property is well placed for the local towns of Ledbury, Malvern, and Leominster, with the Cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester within easy reach. This part of Herefordshire is known for its traditional farms, undulating countryside, and productive orchards.


The Thymes is a modern brick-built, extended bungalow offering spacious accommodation and with potential for some refurbishment and redecoration would be a great, small project.
An enclosed porch leads into a spacious entrance hall, where all the accommodation leads off. There are two good-sized reception rooms, comprising a sitting room and dining room which are both lovely and light and each have a double aspect. The sitting room benefits from a fireplace currently fitted with a gas fire, whilst the dining room has a fireplace inset with a wood-burner.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern units providing ample storage and benefits from an electric Belling cooker and cooker hood. There is also a good walk-in larder/store cupboard off the hall, close to the kitchen.

Thymes (Continued)

The kitchen subsequently leads through to the back utility/boot room, which provides further storage and space for any additional appliances. There is a door to the garden and off the rear lobby is a large single bedroom and a bathroom with walk-in shower.
There are three further double bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes and a family bathroom.

The Outside

The property is approached off the main road via a good farm track which leads through a gated farmyard, and onto the property, where there is a good, single garage and ample parking. The property's private drive subsequently forks off to the stable yard, where there is further parking and space for horse boxes/lorries.
The front and rear gardens are private and not overlooked and are planted with a variety of established trees, shrubs, and flowering plants, including clematis, magnolia, camelia and a small orchard of fruit trees including apple and plum.
There is also a separate vegetable garden with a greenhouse which requires a little tlc to bring it back to productive growing. A small, ornamental pond with a seating area provides a pretty feature, and there are a couple of brick/block outbuildings which provide useful storage.

The Outside (Continued)

The stable block is situated to the rear of the property and is securely fenced and gated, with the stables being positioned around a good hardstanding yard.
Within the "L"-shaped stable block are 3 stables, separate tack and feed stores and a hay barn with additional store, which could be used as further storage for hay or bedding or used as a workshop.
A post, rail and wire fenced paddock leads off the stable yard, and there is a further fenced paddock, currently home to a pond which could be removed if desired and be used as a turn-out/summer paddock, or an enclosure for small livestock, ducks, and chickens.
