Blakemere lies adjacent to rolling hills in the tranquil countryside to the south of the River Wye, which is less than two miles distant. It is half way between Hereford and Hay on Wye, about 10 miles from each. Local amenities can be found in the village of Madley where there is a primary school, shop and golf course. There is a church in Blakemere and public houses in the adjoining villages of Preston on Wye and Bredwardine. Around Blakemere there are many delightful countryside walks and two areas of designated Special Scientific Interest.


A detached bungalow, substantially built of brick under tile, set on a quiet country lane in rural West Herefordshire. The property, which was erected just before the last war, is double glazed and Calor gas central heated and set in gardens providing a high degree of privacy and extending to just over 1 third of an acre. There are delightful views over adjoining farmland to distant hills on the Welsh border. The airy accommodation includes a large living room with patio door access to the South facing patio, a separate dining room with french windows, a kitchen/breakfast room, two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, a bathroom and a separate shower room. Because of the high pitch of the roof there is an exceptionally large loft, mostly boarded, which has the potential to be converted into rooms, subject to any necessary consents. The low maintenance gardens are a particular feature and arranged to attract a variety of wild life. There is ample off-road parking and an outbuilding.
