Location & Description

Keepers Cottage is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Stoke Edith. Stoke Edith lies approximately four and a half miles east of Hereford and eight miles west of Ledbury. The neighbouring villages of Bartestree and Lugwardine together offer a range of facilities including primary and secondary schools with Hereford and Ledbury combined offering a further range of shopping, leisure and recreational facilities together with educational establishments and both bus and railway stations. Access to the M50 motorway is available from Junction 2 on the outskirts of Ledbury.

Keepers Cottage is a most attractive period brick and stone cottage sympathetically modernised throughout whilst retaining its charm with exposed timbers and beams. Set in a large garden, the cottage enjoys a wonderful position adjoining farmland belonging to Stoke Edith Estate with far reaching views over the Frome Valley and the Shropshire Hills beyond. The current owners have further enhanced their beautiful home with the addition of a most attractive hardwood garden room including underfloor heating, a new kitchen, replacement double glazed windows and doors and LED lighting throughout. Outside, a new garage has been built including a spacious home office / studio with French doors opening onto the garden and an attached open fronted log store. This beautifully presented home full of character and charm benefits from oil central heating with accommodation comprising to the ground floor an entrance hall with feature brick and tile staircase with blacksmith-forged banister, shower room with WC, sitting room and separate dining room both with feature fireplaces and wood burning stoves, well appointed re-fitted kitchen with doors leading to the delightful garden room with open views and access to the garden. To the first floor the character continues with exposed wooden floor boards and exposed beams. The half galleried landing leads to the master bedroom with timber framed dressing area, two further bedrooms and the bathroom. Outside, Keepers Cottage is approached via a country lane which leads to the gated sloping driveway, providing parking for several vehicles. The front garden laid mainly to lawn, slopes away from the house, with steps leading to the sizeable garage with adjoining studio and log store. The gravelled courtyard garden to the rear of the cottage is planted with beautiful selection of Rhododendrons, a wonderfully private area to enjoy a drink with family and friends.
