Tenure: Freehold

Yew Tree Cottage has been home to the current owner since 1991 in which time the property has been extended and improved to create a charming home set in delightful gardens that are bordered by a brook and a further parcel of land that is accessed via a bridge over the brook to a banked parcel of grazing on the other side of the valley.
Throughout the cottage there is an abundance of character with fireplaces, exposed beams and in the original part of the cottage on the first floor exposed floor boards.

The kitchen has a tiled floor, a brick built chimney which houses the range cooker and boiler and has ample fitted units with designated spaces for appliances. The dining room also has a chimney breast housing a wood burning stove and the sitting room has a lovely stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove and also having the original bread oven set within, exposed beams and a window overlooking the front garden.

The first floor is accessed via two staircases.
The original part of the house with two double bedrooms has stairs from the hallway. The second staircase from the kitchen goes to the bathroom and a further bedroom.

Planning permission was granted in 2015 for the property to be substantially extended to include the reconfiguration of the first floor, a single storey extension to provide a garden room to the western side of the existing cottage and a further extension to the kitchen to the rear (north facing) to provide a larger kitchen, utility and WC with a further bedroom and bathroom over. The approved plans are available on the planning portal reference 15/03307/FUL.

Horderley is a hamlet is set in the Onny Valley almost equidistance between the towns of Bishops Castle, Craven Arms and Church Stretton. All of which provide a good range of day to day facilities.
Yew Tree Cottage sits in a valley off the B4370 that links the A489 to the A49 at Marshbrook, where the Station Inn public house and restaurant is located. A driveway leads from the road to the property.

The surrounding countryside provides a wealth of leisure and recreational activities with the nearby Long Mynd being National Trust owned land and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty being in close proximity.
Trains on the Manchester to Cardiff line can be picked up at Ludlow, Church Stretton and Craven Arms, the latter also having a link into the Heart of Wales line that runs down to the Welsh Coast.

Garden and Outbuildings

The gardens lie to the front of the house on the southern side of the property. They are well stocked with an array of plants trees and shrubs with pathways interspersing lawns. Within the garden is a summer house, workshop and shed.

To the rear of the property is the gravelled driveway which provides parking and also access to what used to be a garage, but now best described as a useful wood store.


Accessed via a bridge over the stream to a parcel of land which is predominantly grassed some of the lower lying land is reasonably level, gently banking up to the ridge and neighbouring land. This is fenced and enclosed by the stream.
