The traditional kitchen features an Aga in an inglenook and a separate pantry, while the study/office leads through to the garden room, which also opens onto the courtyard. Stairs from here lead up to a bedroom and a bathroom. On the first floor are three further bedrooms (one with en-suite shower) and a family bathroom.

Outside, the pretty courtyard garden also features an orchard. Outbuildings include a traditional red brick and timber-framed barn which has planning consent to be turned into three one-bedroom holiday cottages, while the modern buildings comprise a central five-bay dutch barn and a five bay American barn with six stables, tack room and three further boxes. Five well-fenced paddocks all lead from the stables.

Little Yarkhill Court is a wonderful country house sitting in an ideal situation between Hereford and Ledbury. The small hamlet of Yarkhill lies in the heart of the Frome Valley; Ledbury is nine miles and Hereford is seven miles.

The guide price is £845,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 0143 227 3087, or visit
