From Leominster take the A49 north. Just outside the town take the A4112 towards Tenbury Wells. About a mile beyond the village of Kimbolton, turn right, signed Bache. Turn left after about 500 yards, and the entrance to Lower Bache is on the right, just past the first houses in the hamlet.
These particulars are intended only as a guide and must not be relied upon as statements of fact. Your attention is drawn to the Important Notice on the last page of the text.
The pretty village of Kimbolton has a village pub (the Stockton Cross Inn), a village hall, a Primary School and a Nursery School. Two miles to the east of the A49, it is very accessible with Ludlow, Tenbury Wells and Leominster close by, providing a wide range of facilities. Stations are at Ludlow and Leominster.
Lower Bache House has 17th Century origins. In the same ownership for over 30 years, the house has been run
as a bed and breakfast business, and at the same time increasingly managed with conservation and traditional farming practices in mind. There are, for example,
19 butterfly species identified on the property.
The small hamlet of houses at Lower Bache are approached down a pretty country lane. The drive entrance sweeps directly to the house. The front door leads into the magnificent Drawing Room with its large inglenook fireplace, main staircase and French door to the garden. The Library has fitted book shelves along one wall. The Dining Room has within it, a cider mill and doors out on to the terrace and garden. In one corner there is a wood burning stove. Both the traditional Kitchen and Old Dairy still have many original features, and the rear lobby, beside which is the cloakroom, leads out to the courtyard.
On the first floor, the main bedroom has a Dressing Room and Bathroom. Off this landing, a door leads into the first of the letting bedrooms. Each of the three bedroom suites has a small sitting room and shower room, and the back landing leads out to the external stone staircase.
The Annexe and Barn
Directly opposite the back door is a self-contained annexe comprising a small sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. The traditional barn and workshop backs on to the annexe, and along with its associated buildings, including the outside utility room and potting shed, could be developed into a small cottage in a similar style and layout to the courtyard beyond.
These pretty gardens surround the house on three sides. Beside the drive, a large willow shades a pretty pond. On the east side of the house, the terrace off the Dining Room enjoys superb views. This terraced side of the garden overlooks the valley and comprises various sections, including a raised vegetable garden, a former butterfly house, a pretty wildlife pond, terraced lawns, a small orchard and chicken paddock.
Mains water and electricity. Private drainage.
