Ledge View sits on a country lane surrounded by countryside and magnificent views. The adjacent property, Hill View Rise was a former Dutch Barn, whilst Ledge View started life as a Nissen hut. To the front are views over the Vale of Evesham whilst beyond the woodland on the other side of the road lies Dover’s Hill, home to the Cotswold Olimpicks, fabulous walks, and truly magnificent views.
The simple design and décor give the impression of space and light. The ground floor is open plan with a well-equipped kitchen area, a large living space with a comfy corner sofa and wood-burning stove, and a dining area with a wooden table that seats six.

Upstairs are two further bedrooms. The bedroom to the front has fabulous views over the Vale of Evesham, on a clear day you can see the Malvern Hills in the distance.

In addition, there’s a 40” smart TV, plus games and plenty of book, maps and information about the local Cotswold area stored on the shelves beneath.
