Full description

The Bay Horse is a delightful period property and is bright and spacious throughout with extensive dining and entertaining space on the ground floor with views over the garden. The house retains immense character and period features including exposed timbers throughout along with bespoke oak joinery complementing the house to great effect. Located off the wide hallway is the light and airy drawing room with triple aspect windows and Clear View stove. The office is located just behind and has been completely fitted in Oak by Neville Johnson. The atmospheric dining room has ample space for a large table and opens up on the hallway. The farmhouse kitchen has a range of wall and base units, built in appliances, Rayburn and built in dresser. The kitchen can also easily accommodate a breakfast table. There is also a bright morning room with oak flooring, a log burner and double doors opening to the patio and gardens beyond. Completing the ground floor there is also a utility room and cloakroom. The master bedroom is located on the first floor and boasts a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, built in wardrobes and en-suite shower room. The guest suite overlooks the garden to the rear and also has an en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom all located off the wide landing.

The Bay Horse is located on the outskirts of the most popular village of Orleton, and surrounded by glorious countryside. It has a thriving community and offers many sporting and recreational facilities. Within the village itself is a doctor's surgery, a church, two established public houses, a village post office and store, and an excellent primary school (a leading school within the area). The popular market town of Ludlow is just 6.8 miles to the north and famed for its gastronomic reputation, interesting architecture and vibrant festivals. To the south is the cathedral city of Hereford - with a full range of shops and amenities - and to the east is Worcester, where the M5 can be picked up. Both Ludlow and Hereford are on the Manchester to Cardiff line with trains running at regular intervals.

The beautiful garden is a real feature of the property and has been lovingly designed and
created by the current owners and stretches to just under 2 acres. The design allows for full enjoyment of the garden throughout the day with an array of seating areas perfectly placed to simply relax or for summer entertaining. The clever design of the garden leads you through various different areas, each with their own characteristics and attributes. This impressive garden really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

To the front of the house is a winding gravel
driveway with mature borders. Beyond the house there is the large patio with views of the garden, over the surrounding countryside and the Clee Hills. There is also a mature rose arbour, a summer house overlooking the rockery, a pond and fully stocked borders with an exciting mix of shrubs, perennials and a quince tree. A Copper Beech hedge is well established and divides the garden to great effect. Beyond is the impressive walled garden, built by the current owners and which comprises two distinct areas. The first is an established formal garden with central fountain and theme planting in each corner. The second is aproductive kitchen garden with a mix of summer
and winter produce, soft fruit cage, bespoke
greenhouse and espaliered fruit trees.

Surrounding the walled garden is an orchard and wild life areas allowing spring/wild meadow flowers to flourish. There is also a practical log store and potting shed. The outbuildings include an impressive 'Cider Barn,' which is beautifully constructed and is currently used for cider making but could be an additional entertaining room, studio or an office (subject to planning permission.) There is an open wood barn (with discrete solar panels) to the side of the garden and to the front of the house, next to the stone parking is a two bay car port with equipment shed and work shop attached. It should be noted that the water for garden and pond comes from a natural well.
