    Situation

    The parish and village of Wichenford lie 6 miles north-west of the City of Worcester, with the original settlement dating from c. 1100 AD, possibly earlier. The property is a perfect rural retreat situated in an attractive and idyllic location, yet has excellent commuter links to the rest of the country. This area remains very much an agricultural community today, combining arable, fruit and livestock farming, which are a feature of the surrounding countryside, along with ancient woodland, rolling hills and fabulous views.

    The Property

    Woodhall Farm is an extensive property which has a rich history and is believed to date from the 1600’s, with purported connections to Queen Elizabeth I, and was formerly both a hunting lodge and a Court house.

    The farmhouse has been sympathetically refurbished and retains many original features including exposed timbers with meat hooks, latch & brace doors, fireplaces, flagstone floor and internal well. Large farmhouse Aga kitchen/breakfast room, perfect for family and informal entertaining and featuring the original well and old water pump. 5 reception rooms offering a wealth of living space, including a beautiful, double-aspect drawing room with sash windows, original flagstone floor and inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. The property offers flexible accommodation and scope for a multi-generational home, with potential for holiday let or a rental annexe.

    The Outside

    The property is approached off a private road via a long, gravelled driveway which leads to ample parking and a triple bay timber car port. The land is split into several fenced pasture paddocks interspersed with orchard trees and woodland, with water supply and planning consent for a new agricultural building (6m x 9m). A water-filled ancient moat forms the garden boundary and an interesting feature, which in turn feeds an attractive lake, bordered by trees and woodland. Ancient orchards with perry, pear and apple trees complement the maturely planted garden and lawns, with the addition of attractive brick paved terraces. Modest traditional brick outbuildings adjoin the property and offer a variety of uses.
