Wood End CottageWood End Cottage, set on the edge of the village of St Michael’s, enjoys an idyllic and peaceful location. It is surrounded by glorious countryside, synonymous with the Welsh Marches and perfect for walking, cycling, or exploring the many nearby towns and villages.

Just two miles away is the bustling historic market town of Tenbury Wells, with excellent amenities including weekly markets and many individual shops and restaurants. Also close by is Ludlow, famous for its many food festivals, together with Leominster, Hereford and Worcester.

Once a two bedroom cottage, purchased by the family in 1976, it has been cleverly and lovingly extended to create a spacious family home.

The attractive natural wooden staircase leads from its spacious entrance hall up to a bright, sunny galleried landing which gives access to four well-proportioned bedrooms, all overlooking different aspects of the lovely gardens.

The main generous reception room is set in the oldest part of the cottage with its distinctive stepped stone gable. This homely and welcoming room has retained its charming inglenook fireplace and bread oven and now houses a log burning stove. Its many windows provide natural light to flood the room; a wonderful place in which to entertain family and friends, whatever the season.

Wood End Cottage is a special home, with its own unique ambience, where the whole family love to gather. The space and flexible layout has enabled many memorable celebrations to be held over the years.

Apart from the reception room, another favourite is the dining room, with its beamed ceiling salvaged from an old barn. This leads into the sunny conservatory overlooking the garden, very much an area in which to linger after a meal, or to enjoy quiet relaxation or a chat with friends over afternoon tea.

The patio leads out onto the large garden, ideal for children to explore. The orchard, characteristic of the area, has productive apple, damson, pear and plum trees, together with a Mulberry and a Walnut tree.

The old village Blacksmith’s was incorporated into a new building to provide garaging, log storage and a workshop.

After forty years, the time has come for new owners to write the next chapter in Wood End’s story and to love and enjoy it as much as its present owners have done whilst living here.
