A charming and well-proportioned detached country cottage, recently extended and improved, set in good-sized gardens in the centre of this attractive rural village.

Situation and Description

The small village of Orcop lies in south west Herefordshire and has a thriving community centred around the village pub. This is supported by a village hall and parish church with a shop and delicatessen at the nearby village of Wormelow which also has a very active cricket club. There is a doctors surgery and school at Much Birch with more extensive facilities available at the market towns of Monmouth and Ross on Wye to the south and at the cathedral city of Hereford to the north.

This attractive period cottage has been extended and greatly improved by the current owner and now offers four bedroom living accommodation which still retains plenty of character. There is a large conservatory on the southern side as well as a modern and well-appointed kitchen and a ground floor bathroom, oil fired central heating, double glazing throughout and limestone flooring to much of the ground floor.

On arrival an enclosed canopy porch leads into a large L-shaped living room/dining room with a mixture of exposed stone work and timbering, wall lights, stone fireplace with open fire, windows to the front and double doors from the dining area leading out to the gardens. There is a good-sized study with recessed shelving and dual aspect, and a good-sized central hallway which provides access to an impressive conservatory. This also has limestone flooring and double glazed windows on three sides as well as a ceiling light and fan and doors providing access to the gardens.

The kitchen/breakfast room lies at the rear of the house and has a triple aspect, including glazed doors out to the gardens. It has a range of fitted cupboards and drawers as well as single drainer sink unit, Belling five ring range style cooker, with extractor above, and limestone flooring. From the hallway a door provides access to a well-appointed ground floor bathroom with window to side, panelled bath with shower over, built in airing cupboard and all the other usual fittings.

From the hall a staircase rises to a half landing where the staircase splits leading to the front and rear of the house where on each side there are two bedrooms (four in total), all with fitted carpets and all with their own individual character. A small box room has the potential to create a first-floor shower room and we understand the pipework is already in place in preparation.

Outside: the property is approached from the village lane by its own driveway which leads to a parking and turning area and provides access to a brick -built garden store 8ft x 7ft and a separate single detached garage with up and over door to the front, door to side 20ft 6 x 10ft 2. The gardens at Copywell Cottage form a particular feature and in the main lie to the side and rear and are well enclosed on all sides by mature mixed hedging and trees. They are laid mainly to lawn with herbaceous borders, a number of fruit trees with a separate area including a soft fruit
