Location & Description

A traditional Herefordshire sandstone Cottage, Broome Hill Farm is situated on the Gloucestershire/Herefordshire border some 5 miles south east of Ross-on-Wye in an idyllic rural location, yet offering easy access to both the nearby City of Gloucester as well as motorway connections via the M50.

The Cottage is surrounded by both its own gardens, and paddocks offering both tranquillity and seclusion as well as stunning views across rural countryside. Seating areas and gardens to all aspects ensure that you will be able to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets in this unspoilt position.

With the benefit of planning consent, Broome Hill Farm has the scope to provide additional ground floor accommodation as well as an additional bedroom and en-suite facility. This together with possible further planning consent gives someone the opportunity to develop, and create a truly bespoke home.

A newly installed 60m x 20m waxed arena, with full panel mirrors to one end, together with a recently constructed barn incorporating two stables, tack room and wash down area, are located close to the Cottage. An all weather track gives access between the stables and arena, and leads on to the free draining and well maintained paddocks amounting to approx. 6 acres. From the cottage one can ride out with ease across the surrounding countryside, enjoy mountain biking or simply take the time to walk and admire the stunning situation.
