Situation

Hill House Farm is situated on the fringe of the popular village of Bosbury, in a super rural location. Bosbury is a popular village having a charming 12th century Church, primary school, cricket club and village Inn, with the village hall being a focal point for the community and offering a variety of clubs and events. There is also a good pub at Staplow. Many of the houses in the locality are timber framed and are of particular architectural note and the village also has historic links to the Knights Templar and

Arts & Crafts Movement.

This part of Herefordshire lies close to the Worcestershire border and is renowned for its scenic and unspoilt countryside. The area offers a sought-after rural quality of life, without being

isolated, combined with excellent access to the market town of Ledbury which is well known for its restaurants, independent shops and boutiques and annual poetry festival. Malvern and the larger towns and cities of Worcester, Hereford and Birmingham are easily accessible and offer a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities.
