It is believed that Woodbine Cottage dates back as far as the mid 1700s. It stands proudly in the small village of Little Hereford overlooking the Parish Church at the front. Little Hereford is on the borders of three stunning counties, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Nearby are some lovely country walks by the River Teme and through the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Woodbine Cottage is a fine substantial family home. It has also provided a very lucrative income for the present owners who have let it for holidays to large groups as it can accommodate up to eight guests. We are informed that accounts could be provided to genuinely interested buyers who have viewed and would wish to purchase the property for this purpose. Also most of the furniture, fixtures and fittings can be purchased under separate negotiation.

The house oozes with character throughout. It also offers all modern amenities and is double glazed throughout. It also benefits from oil fired central heating. A door opens into the reception area within which is a feature exposed stone bread oven. As well as working surfaces there is a white Belfast sink, ceiling beams and an exposed brick wall leading into the characterful kitchen which has a brick inglenook housing an oil fired Aga and with evidence of the bread oven. There are hand made base and wall units, a moveable island and a Belfast sink.

Off the central hall is a ground floor shower and wc and a feature wood framed window. A side lobby leads to the original front door to outside.
The spacious sitting room has French doors opening to the front garden and there is a fireplace housing a wood burning stone. A connecting door lead into the formal dining room which again has French doors opening out to the front.

Stairs rise to the first floor landing with exposed beams. The master bedroom has views from the front window to the Parish Church. There is also a feature fireplace. Both bedrooms 2 and 3 have south facing windows and there are two further connecting bedrooms. The bathroom is a special feature with a roll top bath with claw feet, wc and washbasin.

Outside is a detached multi- purpose outbuilding. Presently it is used as an annex to the main house having a sitting room with a range of store cupboards. There is also a small kitchenette and a shower room with wc. Steps lead up to a first floor room, presently used for storage purposes. Double wooden doors lead into an area of the outbuilding which is currently utilised as a games room but could provide garaging. Within the garden there is also a detached brick built former cart house which is also a useful space for storage. The level gardens are enclosed and laid out for easy maintenance. There are quite extensive lawns to front and rear and also an abundance of mature trees, bushes and shrubs. There is space for parking several vehicles.
