Location & Description

The Moats is situated within a small hamlet of Coddington which is close to the village of Bosbury which has a primary school, church and a village pub. Ledbury, voted by a national newspaper as one of the most desirable small towns in which to live is approximately 5 miles and provides an excellent range of facilities and amenities including a mainline railway station with services to Hereford, Worcester, Birmingham, Reading and London Paddington. The M5/50 motorway network is approximately 4 miles to the south of Ledbury bringing Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, the West Midlands and the Forest of Dean into good commuting distance.

A detached half timbered thatched property set in a wonderful secluded rural location backing onto fields and having a delightful garden enjoying views to Coddington Church to the south east and the Malverns Hills to the east. The Moats is a Grade II Listed cottage understood to date back to the 16th century. The property has been beautifully upgraded over the years to provide practical, modern living accommodation whilst retaining its charm and character featuring extensive exposed timbering throughout. The accommodation benefits from gas fired (LPG) central heating and double glazing and it is understood that fibre broadband is available. It comprises an entrance lobby, reception hall, sitting room, fitted kitchen with Rayburn opening through to a dining room, inner lobby, cloakroom with WC and a ground floor bedroom with a newly fitted ensuite shower room, providing potential for use as an annex. On the first floor, there is a landing with small study area two bedrooms, bathroom with shower and a separate WC. In addition there is a further small bedroom/box room having an unusual and restricted access via a wall hatch. Outside there is a delightful well stocked garden which extends to over half an acre. There is a large garage and parking for several vehicles. The vendor of The Moats is running a successful B&B business from the property further details are available on their web site: It should be noted that this property offers considerable potential to be further developed with planning permission granted for a detached garden room/studio/office within the garden. There is also planning to develop the ground and first floor of the garage, plus the first floor over the ground floor bedroom to create further bedrooms and bathroom if required. If the works detailed in the planning permission were undertaken, a substantial family house could be created. In addition, the vendors have had discussions with the planning department and have a pre-application indication that consent would probably be granted for an annex within the garden.
