Upstairs are four first-floor bedrooms and an elegant family bathroom with a roll-top bath. The staircase leads to the second floor where the superb master suite is found – offering oak floors, fitted wardrobes and a large sitting area with views out from three sash windows.

Outside a number of useful outbuildings are to be found, while the main garden lies to the rear, and is bordered with mature trees and hedges. A small paddock of around an acre is accessed from the drive – a further paddock is available by separate negotiation.

Orchard House is located in Lower Hayton, a hamlet just outside the historic town of Ludlow which has an excellent range of services; London is three hours by train.

The guide price is £590,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01584 873 711 or visit
