Situation The attractive rural village of Much Marcle is situated in south Herefordshire between the traditional market towns of Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye. The area is surrounded by rolling countryside dotted with pastureland and cider apple orchards, for which the region is well known. This part of Herefordshire is still very much a rural community with a timeless appeal, but also benefits from excellent communication links to the rest of the country.

Greenway Cottage * Greenway Cottage is a delightful black and white cottage, which whilst improved over the years, remains unspoilt and retains a wealth of charm and character.

* The spacious dining hall has a fireplace with Clearview multi-fuel burner and there is a small study area situated off the dining hall, offering space for a variety of uses, such as a library, play room, pantry or even a laundry/utility room.

* A good-sized sitting room also has a fireplace with wood-burner and traditional fitted storage with display shelving either side.

* The kitchen has been recently re-styled with a range of attractive shaker-style wooden cupboards with granite work-surfaces and offers good storage along with space for a dishwasher or washing machine. There is an integrated electric oven with induction hob and a door leads through to the rear lobby, currently used as a utility area, with door out to the garden.

* In turn, a practical downstairs shower room with WC leads off the rear lobby.

* Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, 2 doubles and a single room, which is currently being used as a walk-in dressing room. Subject to the necessary permissions there is potential to combine the single room with the adjacent double room to create a larger bedroom.

* A smart family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath is also situated on the first floor and a range of fitted cupboards on the landing provide useful storage.

The Outside * Greenway Cottage is approached off a village road, leading to the driveway/parking and enclosed garden to the front of the property.
