This charming, three storey, Georgian farmhouse is set in 4 acres with numerous outbuildings and provides plenty of space and extensive accommodation. It offers immediate income potential but has the possibility for further development to become a wonderful recreational & hospitality business in an ideal location between Hereford and Leominster which in turn is the gateway to the picturesque Herefordshire countryside, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.
Introduction - This stunning property offers an exceptional opportunity to own, run and develop a successful recreational & hospitality business in the centre of the wonderful Herefordshire countryside. The current owners have run the business on an adhoc basis preferring to develop their well know "foot clinic" but have created the infrastructure to provide the basis of the business.
This property offers spacious, adaptable and character accommodation that has been taken care of and lovingly restored and updated to provide a comfortable home of modern conveniences yet retaining all of its original features and charm. Each room has generous proportions and has been re-decorated in recent times to ensure this is a wonderful home.
It was previously being used as a bed and breakfast guest house with the benefits of double glazing, original fireplaces and exposed beams. The property comprises: entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room with pantry, utility, 5 double bedrooms, 3 with ensuites, a single bedroom, family bathroom and a large second floor conservatory.
It is set in almost 4 acres of landscaped grounds with two large ponds.
Marsh House Farm B & B - This characterful, Georgian detached property has a tasteful fusion of cottage style decor and contemporary conveniences. An open fronted porch opens into a reception hall and gives access to the drawing room, living room and stairs to the first floor. The drawing room has extensive period features, an inset wood-burner with original red brick stone surround. The light and airy living room has a more modern twist with oak flooring and a coal effect gas fire with decorative surround. Leading through the formal dining room is the contemporary spacious kitchen which has matching handmade wall and base units and beautiful granite work surfaces. There is a large electric Aga, exposed beams, stunning wall tiles which enhances the impressive decor throughout and plenty of space for a table and chairs. Adjoining the kitchen there is a porch, utility and pantry which could all be used for extra storage, and a study.
To the first floor there are three double bedrooms all with ensuites facilities; a fourth single bedroom and a family bathroom which includes a four piece white suite with a large shower cubicle and separate bath. Also on this floor is the remarkable conservatory which has steps to the beautifully well presented gardens and is ideal as a guest breakfasting area.
A further staircase leads to the second floor where there are two double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes and a window overlooking the front of the property. There is a large walk-in storage cupboard which has potential to be converted into a shower room subject to planning.
Gardens And Parking - The property is accessed via a tarmac drive, which can accommodate a numerous number of vehicles and gives access to a single car port. The property has a garden to the side which is enclosed by tall hedges and trees. There is a small patio area with a pathway leading to the house and a separate set of stairs up to the conservatory which over looks the stunning garden and beautiful surrounding countryside.
Holiday Cottage/Surgery - This detached stone built single story property has most recently be used as a surgery for the "Foot Clinic" but was previously used as a self contained annexe and would not prove too difficult or expensive to convert into either a holiday cottage sleeping 4 or as two further B & B rooms both with en-suites.
Detached Timber Workshop - An ideal storage area for equipment to run the campsite or possible conversion to an improved male/female shower block, site office etc. The opportunities are unlimited (but subject to planning)
Dutch Barn - This two storey building which is in great condition is currently used as a large garage on the ground floor with an external staircase leading to the very useful first floor which again could be used for a variety of on-site uses. Again with a little imagination and the correct permissions this could be turned in to further holiday accommodation.
4 Acres Of Grounds - In total the site measures slightly under 4 acres and is reasonably level with hedging to the front and natural ditches and hedgerows on two sides with an open ditch to the right hand boundary.
The property has a good quality tarmac driveway with excellent visibility along the A49. This in turns leads to a good parking area and then a track leads to the caravan pitches.
Caravan & Camping Site - A certified site (CS) with the Caravan & Camping Club the site has a licence for 5 touring caravans and 10 tents but additional planning could provide a significant improvement in the number of pitches as there remains 2 additional large grassed areas suitable for this use.
Static Caravan & Log Cabins - Located on the property is a large 5 berth static caravan which is in need of renewal/replacement and we understand that this can be replaced without the need for further planning with a log cabin . Further details of the the type of cabin suitable can be found by logging on to: http://tptimberbuildings.co.uk/wiki/timber-buildings-mobile-log-cabins
The current owners have planning permission passed for a replacement surgery under reference P141855/RM with Herefordshire council which was for a much larger timber framed building and therefore it is more than likely that an application for smaller log cabins would be considered but it would be down to the buyer to investigate this.
Fishing Lakes & Woodland - There are two sizable connected lakes located within the property and previously had been popular fishing lakes and had a huge number of carp. The lakes are not lined and are water table fed so the level rises and falls in line with the water table. These make a lovely feature of the site as do the large number of deciduous trees that have been planted to provide both screening and contouring of the site.
Marketing - The current owners own the domain names:
and are included in the sale.
Location - This property is located on the outskirts of the popular village of Wellington, 5 miles north of the Cathedral City of Hereford and approximately 8 miles from the market town of Leominster. With the extensive range of facilities, there many amenities including primary school, church, post office and stores, village hall, sports field and award winning country pub and restaurant.
Within a short distance of the property is Queenswood Country Park & Arboretum; Hampton Court Castle & Gardens, the well renown Black & White Village Trial incorporating the villages of Pembridge & Weobley. The area is hugely popular with walkers, sightseers and is surrounded by some of the best countryside in the west.
Services - The site benefits from mains gas, electric and water.
There is a bore hole on the property but has not been connected to the main dwelling house but this was a significant investment and would provide free water for much of the site.
A Bio-disc sewerage system has been installed and we understand that it has the capacity to accommodate up to 18 people.
Directions - From Hereford follow the A49 towards Leominster. Continue through Lyde, pass the Moreton Business Park on the right hand side and proceed for approximately 0.5 mile. The property can be found on the left hand side as indicated by our agents for sale board.
