FOR SALE BY INFORMAL TENDER - Beautifully situated, and offering huge potential, a detached and partly constructed cottage, set in large gardens and grounds, in a highly sought-after area on the edge of Haugh Woods. Please ring the agent for a tender form or download the brochure..

Situation and Description

Haugh Wood is an area of outstanding natural beauty and lies between the popular villages of Mordiford, Woolhope and Fownhope. It is a site of Special Scientific Interest and covers some 850 acres and has been popular with walkers and nature lovers for many, many years. It contains a wide array of wildlife and is nationally important for species of butterflies and moths. The local villages provide a good range of services with primary schools at Mordiford and Fownhope, a tennis club at Woolhope, and a private leisure club and gym at Fownhope, as well as much more. The cathedral city of Hereford is within easy reach by car and offers an array of shops and services including a main line train station.

THIS INTERESTING PROPERTY IS SUBJECT TO A LOCAL OCCUPANCY CONDITION, which in essence ensures that only local people who live, or have a connection to the surrounding area, can occupy the cottage. The main shell of the cottage, including walls, floors and roof have been constructed and the project was very much a labour of love for the previous owner. Sadly, they didn t survive to see the cottage completed but it allows someone else to put their own stamp on it. It occupies a tucked away and delightful position, in this highly desirable area and is set in a good-sized plot, with a small paddock opposite. In our view, it offers huge potential to create a very individual country property in an outstanding location.

Accessed from a track the cottage is constructed of brick and block and currently offers two ground floor rooms, a good-sized main bedroom, a second bedroom and a proposed bathroom. A further extension has been started and lies on the southern side of the cottage which offers scope for further accommodation. Within the gardens there is a very useful general-purpose building 35 x 34 with doors to front and side and a separate former garden store. The main building stores building material meant for the cottage which is included in the sale. The cottage occupies a lovely position and enjoys far reaching views from the property and gardens.

To the rear and lying on the other side of the track is a separate area of land which offers space for a variety of uses and includes a small building in one corner.


We understand both electricity and water have been brought to the site but are not connected to the cottage. It is not our company policy to test services and domestic appliances, so we cannot verify that they are in working order. Any matters relating to rights of way should be checked with your solicitor or surveyor.
