Description:

 

Dating back to 1601, this stunning Grade II listed Georgian property has been decorated and furnished to a high standard, carefully blending modern conveniences whilst retaining an elegance befitting the period. Interior designs by Laura Ashley, it boasts over 3,500 square feet of living space - perfect for family get-togethers and parties. The enclosed rear garden is landscaped, with two patio areas and a wonderful ornamental koi pond (fitted with safety grid), which is illuminated by night. There is also a play area for children and a small fenced-off pets corner, with rabbits.


Adjoining the caretaker's cottage, it is set in a quiet backwater, close to the heart of Evesham, with its picturesque abbey, and half a mile from good fishing spots along the banks of the River Avon. Stratford-upon-Avon, home to Shakespeare, is just 12 miles away. There are many National Trust properties nearby, including Ragley Hall, Tithe Barn, Hidcote Manor, Hailles Abbey with Broadway Country Park and golf center just 5 miles away.
