A substantial period property with versatile accommodation, three cottages and pretty gardens in a private, peaceful location.

Dating back to the 17th century, Lower House is a substantial period property with traditional charm providing excellent versatile accommodation. Lower House was originally the principle farmhouse of village and is believed to have been much extended in the middle of the Victorian era. The property is currently used as a successful family run 4* B&B and a comfortable family home. The accommodation to the ground floor comprises kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, adjacent utility room, pantry, cloakroom, triple aspect sitting room, superb dining room with large inglenook fireplace, drawing room with garden views and a study. The first floor has four double bedrooms all with shower en suites and two further bedrooms served by family bathrooms one with a roll top bath and separate shower and one with a spa bath. The current vendors use four of the six bedrooms as B&B letting rooms.

There are three cottages in addition to Lower House. The Stable Cottage has two bedrooms and a bathroom and adjoining this is a workshop/stable which could be incorporated into Stable Cottage to make it a totally independent secondary accommodation. The Stable Cottage is currently used as an overflow letting suite for the B&B business. Adjoining the Stable Cottage is a car port with large loft above. The Granary is currently divided into two self-contained cottages named Oats Cottage and Barley Cottage which are both currently let on assured shorthold agreements. The accommodation in Oats Cottage comprises a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and cot room/study. The accommodation in Barley Cottage comprises a sitting room, kitchen, shower room, bedroom and cot room or small study. The Granary, subject to the necessary planning permission could easily be converted into one dwelling.

This property has 1.2 acres of land.


The pretty gardens consist of many specimen fruit trees and herbaceous plants. The lawns sweep down to a mixed fruit orchard. The gardens are private and secluded and extend to 1.2 acres in total.


Lower House is situated above the attractive village of Adforton and a short distance from the village of Leintwardine, the excellent village amenities include a local butcher, fantastic village shop and petrol station, two popular pubs, a primary school, library, doctors surgery and fish & chip shop. The active community centre hosts regular events. To the north east is the busy market town of Ludlow which is famed for its many festivals and restaurants. A wider selection of amenities can be found in the cathedral city of Hereford to the South. Ludlow is on the Manchester to Cardiff railway line and the A49 links Shrewsbury in the north to Hereford in the south. The motorway network is accessed beyond Ludlow towards Kidderminster via the A4117.
