SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION

Bodenham is situated just off the A49 and A417, midway between Hereford and Leominster (approx. 7 & 8 miles respectively), hence is very accessible to a number of regional centres and the wider road and rail network, motorway access available at Worcester and Ledbury.

Bodenham was described in the 1851, EC Lascelles Directory of Hereford as, “Bodenham, a pretty village, situated about eight miles N. From Hereford, it contains several good houses, and has a very romantic and pleasant appearance.” Bodenham Cottages, the former village Alms houses, are situated just on the outskirts of Old Bodenham village, an area of the village still retaining its past charm, and enjoying lovely rural views back towards the village church and beyond. The village of Bodenham offers a good range of amenities including shop and post office, schooling, village pub and restaurant, petrol station, doctors surgery, golf course and café. Situated close by is the Bodenham Lakes Nature Reserve with lovely lake side walks and picnic areas.

The property itself has been sympathetically upgraded over the years to include part double glazing (as well as some original sash windows), and central heating, while retaining many character features. More recently, the current vendor has had the spiral staircase removed and replaced with a traditional full tread carpeted staircase to the bathroom and large master bedroom, newly fitted downstairs shower room and beautiful kitchen with luxury 'cashmere' granite work tops, porcelain tiled floor extending throughout the kitchen, utility and show room with under floor heating. The kitchen leads out into a lovely conservatory/garden room enjoying views across the garden and adjoining orchards. In more details the property comprises:-
