Location & DescriptionBroome Hill Farm lies some 5 miles South East of the market and tourist town of Ross-on-Wye and some 10 miles North West of the cathedral city of Gloucester. Access to the motorway network on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye means that accessibility to most parts of the country is first class.

Despite this accessibility, the property lies in a glorious rural location, being surrounded by its own pastures and paddocks, and has a range of versatile outbuildings to the South of the main dwelling.

Outlook from virtually all windows is across farmland and open countryside towards wooded hillsides. Running along the South Eastern boundary is a small stream, flowing North wards, and positioned to one side of this stream is a magnificent, mature Poplar tree.

Both the house and most of the outbuildings have a sunny, South Easterly aspect and, subject to the necessary consents, we consider there is potential to create holiday let accommodation, and certain of the fields might lend themselves to accommodate pods or similar.

Positioned to the extreme North of the land is a small, young Arboretum, planted by the current owners since 1985, and this forms a further delightful feature of the property.

It is often the case that country properties offer one or two attributes in addition to their rural nature. On the contrary, it is very rare to find a property which has a whole host of attributes in a single holding. In this respect, Broome Hill Farm is a very rare beast! Here one has seclusion, no near neighbours, tranquillity, views, a good looking, stone built cottage, outbuildings, paddocks and pasture land, a stream, a young arboretum, and many fine, deciduous trees. To those people looking for such qualities, an inspection may well prove worthwhile! In detail the accommodation comprises:
