Property description

Dating from 1635 White Haywood Farm is located in Herefordshire's beautiful Golden Valley, in the lea of the Black Mountains. The farm is situated in a picturesque spot with far reaching views. The traditional stone built farmhouse retains many period features including flag stone floors, oak panelling, inglenook fireplaces, leaded windows and exposed ceiling beams.
Adjacent to the main house is a converted stone barn providing exceptionally spacious, two bedroom accommodation. It had previously been used as a restaurant and art gallery and therefore has enormous potential, and planning consent, for alternative uses.
The main range of steel framed barns provides over 14,000 sq. ft. of space for livestock, storage or workshops. There is also a Dutch barn with potential for a change of use or conversion, subject to approvals.
A recently installed 40m x 20m ménage has a sand and wax surface and the adjacent buildings lend themselves to "American barn" stabling.

Mains electricity. Private water supply from boreholes, private drainage via treatment plant. Oil fired central heating. Fast fibre broadband connection to both house and barn.

Situated in west Herefordshire, in the renowned Golden Valley with idyllic countryside, Neolithic monuments, ancient churches and ruined castles, this place is as beautiful as it is wild and untamed. The name is a little misleading as in fact it is carved between two river valleys, the Dore and The Monnow, and the Black Mountains. This makes for many highs and lows, from the thrilling peaks of the Cat's Back, Black Hill and Moccas Wood to the mosaic of rolling hills and patchworked fields. Surrounded by some of the Marches' most beautiful countryside.

White Haywood is located in the small rural community of Craswall, close to the Black Mountains and Offa's Dyke. The nearby Hamlet of Michaelchurch Escley is just three miles away and has a primary school, pub and church. The villages of Longtown, Ewyas Harold and Peterchurch offer a good range of day-to-day amenities including village shops, public houses, GP surgeries and popular primary schools.
The towns of Hay-on-Wye and Abergavenny offer more comprehensive amenities. Hereford has high street stores such as Waitrose together with
independent cafes and restaurants, a good range of services including leisure centre and pool, a hospital, cinema and museums. and is the social, economic and cultural hub of the county.
The area offers a good selection of state schooling including Michaelchurch Escley Primary School and Kingstone and Fairfield High Schools together with a wide range of noted independent schools including Hereford Cathedral School and Haberdashers Monmouth.

Despite the Agent’s eulogy above, White Haywood farm and Craswall are not in the ‘Golden Valley’.
