The hamlet of Walterstone lies 16 miles south west of Hereford and 7 miles north of Abergavenny, just over km from Offa's Dyke on the English side. Within the village there is a public house and a wider range of facilities can be found in either Hereford or Abergavenny towns but more locally in villages such as Longtown and Ewyas Harold.

There is a small patio overlooking the rear garden with easy access to the Sun Room.

The remainder of the ground can be found across a small private driveway where there is a pedestrian footpath and the lane gives access to just one other property. There is a further lawned area and path which meanders down to an attractive brook where the path crosses the brook and can loop back into the property's grounds.

A most attractive feature of this property is the beautiful and well-established waterfall which cascades into a relatively large pool. Upstream, the brook borders the property and the separately accessed, established woodland, which has a variety of fir trees and selection of wild flowers.

In all the gardens equate to approximately 2.6 acres.
