DIRECTIONS

From Hereford proceed along Roman Road in a westerly direction. At the Canon Pyon road, continue straight ahead turning next right towards Burghill and Weobley. Proceed through Burghill and upon reaching Tillington, opposite The Bell, turn left onto the Credenhill road. Continue for a third of a mile where Rogers Cross can be found on the right hand side. Turn right and the entrance can be found after a very short distance on the left.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION

This property enjoys a particularly pleasant location with the paddock itself surrounded by trees alongside Burghill golf course. The nearby village of Tillington provides a good range of local amenities including a well renowned public house and restaurant, village shop and post office, church, regular bus service to Hereford which is just a few minutes drive .

Originally a small holding with a period cottage residence, more recently the property was an agricultural training centre with the main dwelling as is, then a childrens home and the considerable ancillary accommodation formed part of this establishment.

In 2009 planning permission was granted for change of use from a childrens home to a residential dwelling and it is our opinion, subject to the necessary consents, that considerable potential exists for two separate dwellings. See offices for further details and separate planning advice.
