Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tranquil Cottage Nestled In The Hills.

Kitchen, WC, Sitting/Dining Room, Family Bathroom, Two Bedrooms, Garden, Excellent Views. Approx. 721 Sq. Ft. EPC = F.

Situation (As provided by Vendor): The Faraway Cottage is part of the story of Clee Hill. An area rich in history, it's huge 'shoulders' first rose 18,000 years ago, when the two continental plates moved, sliding and pushing upwards.

The local Dhustone igneous rock is the basis of the years of quarrying. The Old Red Sandstone colours the ploughed fields, which spill out across the wide landscape below the cottage, as it sits on the south face of Titterstone Clee Hill.

This vantage point offers views to Malvern, the Cotswolds and Hereford and from the adjacent bank Snowdonia, Hay Bluff and the Brecons may be seen.

At 1,749 feet above sea level, it was a steep climb for quarrymen and miners, who would walk to work from miles around. The Poplars Inn must have offered a welcome break. At this time, the current cottage was an outbuilding, possibly a brew house.

In the valley just below the buildings, 'The Faery Glen' is a romantic cleft in the rock, caused by the Cornbrook; the sound of the water may be heard at the bedroom window on warm evenings. Walks, wild flowers and many birds, from wrens and woodpeckers to peregrines, all contribute to this "far away site" spoken of by Housman...

"From Clee to heaven the beacon burns".
