Situation and Description

Snails Hill Cottage is one of a cluster of properties that form part of Cusop Dingle, on the border of England and Wales. The whole area has been a much sought-after destination for many, many, years and is only a short walk away from the market town of Hay-on-Wye. The town is now world famous for its annual literacy festival, attracting internationally renowned speakers as part of its ten-day literary festival. The town also sits above the beautiful River Wye which attracts sightseers, walkers, canoeists, and fishermen who enjoy the towns thriving centre with a range of bookshops, cafes, pubs, open air markets, general stores, cinema, theatre and more. In addition, a short distance away lie the beautiful Black Mountains which form part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. More extensive facilities are then available at the market town of Brecon (approx. 16.1 miles) and at the Cathedral city of Hereford (approx. 20 miles) and the market town of Kington (approx. 12 miles).

The cottage itself is constructed predominantly of stone and has been beautifully maintained by the current owner. Full of character and charm it has a modern and well fitted kitchen, a large sitting room with dining space at one end, double glazing throughout, mains gas fired central heating, delightful gardens and a large, detached garage and adjoining studio which could offer potential for a variety of uses.

On arrival a front door leads into a small entrance hall and then into the main sitting room which has a large stone fireplace along one wall with fitted gas fire, dining space at one end for entertaining, wall lights and radiator. On the other side of the hall a beautifully appointed kitchen has a dual aspect as well as quartz working surfaces with an inset twin bowl sink, a range of base and floor cupboards and a variety of appliances including double oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The ground floor space is then supported by a good-sized utility room, again with plenty of cupboard space, and a comfortable cloakroom. On the first floor there are three comfortable bedrooms with plenty of storage space and a family bathroom which includes both a bath and a separate shower.


The property is approached from the village road by a tarmacadam drive which provides parking space for several cars and gives access to a large detached double garage with remote controlled roller door (18 9 x 16 5) with an adjoining studio (17 2 x 9 1) with separate door from the front and interconnecting door in between. A separate staircase leads up to the rear of the garage where access can be gained into a large and very useful loft space (18 8 x 16 8) with vaulted ceiling.

In our view the garage offers considerable potential for a number of uses, subject of course to any necessary permission.

Between the garage and the cottage there is a useful enclosed courtyard with an outside tap and lighting. The main cottage gardens then lie at one end of the plot and are approached from a small gate. The gardens are an absolute delight and well established with a variety of specimen trees, shrubs and floral borders, there is a good sized central lawned area with stone terracing at the rear with more shrubs and plants and the whole area is well enclosed and surprisingly private.
