Emma Logan discovers a perfect rural retreat in Herefordshire with plenty of space to work from home - is this an impossible dream or can buyers enjoy the best of both worlds?


As more and more people are looking for an idyllic country home, areas such as Herefordshire and the Welsh borders are becoming increasingly popular. Buyers are drawn by the beautiful countryside and many seek total privacy, yet to be part of a village community with no road noise, orange lights and a slower pace of life.


Years ago living the dream may have been just that, a pipe dream.


It was only achievable for those who could afford a


second home, as the practical side of commuting to and from work seemed at odds with the notion of living in splendid isolation. Now, with the availability of superfast broadband in some rural areas and employers encouraging home working, buyers can enjoy the best of both worlds, with many actively seeking to work from home (at the very least a couple of days a week). There are also newly retired people looking for a new way of life. Today’s buyers increasingly look for smaller homes that have extra space for an office or studies without having to compromise the spare bedroom or the dining room.


Llanarrow, which is situated in the hamlet of Huntington, near Kington, is a beautiful and completely restored river-side family home with the joy of having a large separate library with two studies for entertaining, working, hobbies, reading and music all set in an idyllic location.


Keyhole


Huntington is a village located in the northwest of Herefordshire, on the English/Welsh borders, with a Church and village hall, pub and activities including the famous Huntington fete and the Huntington Chase. The surrounding countryside enjoys a nationwide reputation for walking, cycling and riding with the glorious Offa’s Dyke, Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons all within easy reach.


Communications in the area are excellent with trains from Hereford and Leominster to Cardiff, Birmingham and Manchester, with London accessible in about 3 hours. The larger centres of Ludlow, Hereford and Leominster can be found a little further afield and the stunning towns of Kington and Hay-on- Wye are just a few miles. There is an excellent range of both independent and state primary and secondary schools nearby.


The present owners retired to Llanarrow twelve years ago, having spent nine years looking for their perfect house. They needed to downsize, so they wanted a manageable house, which was warm and totally up-to-date but they also had an enormous collection of at least 10,000 books that needed accommodating, so every house they looked at had to be turned down because there was no room for their books.


With Llanarrow, they found the perfect answer. The house is / 65
