Welcome to Harriets Cottage, a delightful, period four-bedroom detached family home, originally built in 1835 and then extended in the mid-1980's. Today, this is a property that enjoys a wealth of accommodation across the two floors whilst further enjoying a mature plot of circa 0.6 acres. Add in that the home benefits from wonderful sunrises and sensational sunsets over the Malvern Hills located to the front of the home, and you begin to understand why this property comes with such a high recommendation to view.

The village of Besford provides a delightful setting amid the highly sought-after rural landscape of South Worcestershire. The historic National Trust Croome Estate may also be found some 2.6 miles to the west, with its restored 'Capability' Brown park and Palladian mansion. West is Upton-upon-Severn, famous for its festivals, marina, and gastro pubs, and to the east is the historic market town of Pershore, defined by its Abbey, boutique shopping, and annual plum festival.

The neighbouring village of Defford, which gives its name to the airfield synonymous with the invention of radar, has a local pub, sailing on the River Avon, and an active village hall. Cheltenham and its racecourse are within easy reach for days out and high-end shopping. Besford is well placed for ready access to the North Cotswolds and Broadway, as well as Stratford-upon-Avon, Great Malvern, and the Malvern Hills.

The M5 motorway (accessed via J1 of the M50 or J7 at South Worcester) provides for ready access to Birmingham and the surrounding areas, as well as Birmingham International Airport and the M40. The M5 South also provides for commuting to Cheltenham, Gloucester, and Bristol.

The newly opened Worcestershire Parkway Railway station, situated to the east of Worcester and only 5 miles from Besford, is intended to increase the capacity to London as well as reduce journey times. This has a significant impact on Worcestershire's accessibility to the capital and other regional centres.

If education is a priority, then Worcestershire is blessed with an enviable mix of schooling at all levels, including a variety of independent establishments, allowing parents to select the right environment for their children's needs.

Returning to the property, the home features a welcoming, central entrance hall that provides access to the two formal reception rooms, which are the living room and dining room, with the living room enjoying an open fireplace.

From the dining room, access is granted to the cloakroom, study, and kitchen/breakfast room, which is a wonderful size, enjoys views over the garden, and benefits from an electric AGA. Completing the ground floor is a utility area and the garden room, which spans along the side elevation.

Upstairs, the four bedrooms are lovely, all a wonderful size and all enjoying views over the front, side, or rear elevations. Of the bedrooms, two offer en-suite facilities. Completing the upstairs is a spacious landing, which the current owner uses for her office space, and finally the family bathroom.

Externally, the grounds encompass the property and consist of formal gardens and an orchard, enjoying a variety of fruit trees. Parking is located to the front of the home and to the side in front of the detached double garage, which benefits from light, power, and rear pedestrian access.
