Newel Tryst dates back to the 1700s and, as one would expect from a property of this age it offers plenty of history. The name of the property derives from the unusual staircase as well as local folk law regarding Lord Bateman of nearby Shobdon Court. Over the last 300 years the property has been added to and improved, especially by the current owners, and now includes a recently handmade fitted kitchen, by the locally renowned Harrison & Pope which includes integrated appliances. The property also benefits from a relatively new central heating system and complete refurbishment throughout.

The accommodation is laid out over three floors, on the ground floor, there are steps leading off the study to a guest suite comprising sitting room, bedroom and en suite shower room making it ideal for a relative. In the main body of the house there are many excellent reception rooms along with the delightful kitchen and a garden room that overlooks the beautifully presented gardens which sweep away from the house. The first and second floors provide the remaining bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The property is approached from the country lane by a gravel driveway which offers ample parking and in turn leads to a double length garage (32ft 4 x 10ft 5). Opposite this there are two original stables (each 12ft x 11ft 10) also within the grounds there is a delightful pond, stocked with koi and there are two relatively new timber built store sheds, a large new greenhouse and a potting shed. As mentioned the gardens sweep away from the property to the rear and are well stocked with a variety of shrubs, flowers, and trees. At the far end of the gardens there is a summer house which is approached off a terrace. The summer house benefits from water and power with a sink and some kitchen units, making it ideal for entertaining.

Shobdon village centre is within walking distance and offers a host of facilities that include a public house, primary school, village shop with post office, church, hairdressers and, rather unusually, a small light aircraft airfield for any budding red barons! Further facilities can be found at the larger centres of Leominster, Presteigne and Ludlow which are within easy reach as is the cathedral city of Hereford.
