Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Grove is a splendid three storey Grade II Listed house. It is reputed to have been the Dower House to nearby Moor Park and dating back to the 18th Century. Standing in a beautiful rural setting in the tiny ancient village of Ashford Bowdler on the Herefordshire/Shropshire border off the A49 about three miles south of Ludlow.

The house has considerable potential for further modernisation to restore it to its original grandeur. Alternatively, as well as residential possibilities it has commercial potential including as a hotel, rest home or conference centre subject to normal Planning and Listed Building Consents.

The house has benefited from the installation of an oil fired central heating system. It occupies three floors and includes two splendid main reception rooms and a very large kitchen/breakfast room with separate cloaks/WC on the ground floor. On the first floor are four good size bedrooms and a very large bathroom with shower and WC, as well as a separate WC. There are two large double bedrooms on the second floor. There is a large cellar.

The adjacent cottage which we have described as the annexe is semi derelict and will require wholesale modernisation if it is to be used for habitable purposes. At present there are doors on each floor from the main house into the annexe. The annexe could indeed become a separate dwelling if required subject again to the requirements of Planning and Listed Building Consents.

There is an opportunity for prospective purchasers to take to the barn for conversion, which will involve putting a separate access from the village road into the south side of that property. The main house with the semi derelict annexe at the rear is available with 2.5 acres or thereabouts.

The detached barn which has Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent for conversion to a four bedroom two storey dwelling of about 196 square meters on two floors is available with a small amount of extra land on its west side. Detailed plans are available for inspection from the Selling Agents' Ludlow office.

N.B. Neither the vendors or their agents will be responsible for any persons visiting the property for any accident, injury, damage or loss suffered in the course of such inspection which shall be conducted entirely at the risk of the person or persons carrying out such inspection.


The Grove is about 3 miles south of Ludlow off the A49 Hereford road. Leave Ludlow on the south side crossing the river by the Charlton Arms and continue along the old Hereford road. At the junction with the A49 turn right and continue for about half a mile to the lay-by on the left hand side leading to Ashford Bowdler village. Turn left here. The entrance to The Grove is a few yards along on the left hand side.
