Location & Description
LOCATION & DESCRIPTION

Craig Farm has many attributes, but perhaps one of the most outstanding is its wonderfully secluded, tucked away location, being set within its own encircling land. Despite this amazing seclusion, one is just under 3 miles from the centre of Ross-on-Wye, and within 10 minutes drive of both the M50 motorway and A40 dual carriageway.

Of primarily stone construction, Craig Farm offers well over 2000 sq ft of well proportioned accommodation, with all principal windows looking out across the attractive courtyard, sun terracing and heated swimming pool.

To the far side of the pool is a fine leisure/office complex, and this would be a wonderful environment for someone who wishes to work from home, recently enhanced by the installation of superfast broadband. Alternatively, one can take full use of the sauna and swimming facilities, with ample space for a mini gym.

The sloping grounds are a haven for wildlife, both fauna and flora, and there are some beautiful walks in the immediate vicinity.

The dispersed hamlet of Coughton lies between the village of Walford and Ross town. Walford offers Church, excellent Primary School, Village Hall and Gastro Pub, whereas
Ross-on-Wye just a little further away offers a wide range of shops and amenities. There are notable public schools both in Monmouth approx 8 miles and Hereford approx 17 miles, whilst Ross-on-Wye has some outstanding state schools, including John Kyrle High School.

The house is double glazed virtually throughout with Brazilian Mahogany hardwood frames, and Pilkington K reflective glass, which facilitates solar gain. There is also a brand new boiler and extra large hot water tank. In detail the accommodation comprises:-

Continue up this single track unmade lane, bearing to the right when you have an opportunity to do so. Shortly afterwards, you will see a gate in front of you and the name plate Craig Farm. Open the gate and continue onto the gravelled driveway, and you have reached Craig Farm.
