Sold by Us £164,950
General Information Tucked into the fields above the River Severn, is Hill Farm. Set within an area of outstanding beauty with open fields around. Imagine owning your own little piece of paradise? The scenery, watching the birds of prey soar high in the air then swoop for their prey, the pheasants as they duck and dive, this is back to nature, chilling out at this much appreciated way of life, in harmony with the grazing sheep.
Yes life here is a much slower and relaxed way of life. And at the tempo of life we are now forced to adhere too. This surely is the nearest place to heaven without being there than you could ever imagine!
Hill Farm has been established since before the 2nd world war when Birmingham folk would come to Bewdley for their holidays. Whether to enjoy the fishing or the tranquil location. Many of the chalets were very basic in those days, with no running water, washing or toilet facilities and no electric. Indeed some were the railway carriages from the near track! Yet people loved the simple way of life away from the smog and daily grind of their lives.
The site grew and today is permanent home to many with the chalets still varying in condition however some are stunning with every available luxury. However, Hill Farm still retains that feel of simplicity olde worlde charm, where you are not judged for the car you drive, the way you dress or the job you have. These are like minded people who care about the surroundings and the environment. A great place to escape to and watch the kids running about in complete safety from traffic etc.
Full time home or holidays, this certainly is an idyllic spot. With the Severn Valley Railway running parallel to the site. This is perfect for the train enthusiasts.
Here you can hail the train driver who will stop and pick you up and carry you to Bewdley one way or indeed Arley or Bridgnorth the other! Fabulous!
