Sunnybank is a charming picturesque pretty rural cottage offering very spacious character accommodation which has been greatly improved over recent years.

The original cottage is still the dominant feature, however, it does also benefit from a substantial Border Oak extension which blends in perfectly with the original.

Sunnybank offers perfect peace and tranquillity. The generous 4 bedroom accommodation has tremendous character throughout having exposed brickwork, and numerous timbers in both the original cottage and the extension.

All aspects of the property are in a very good state of repair and decoration. The modern amenities fully compliment the character of the principal accommodation.

The setting is particularly idyllic being located at the end of a private tarmac road with no immediate neighbours and being flanked by open farmland to the North and common woodland to the South and West, the river Wye being a short walking distance away.

The accommodation, being well appointed, takes full advantage of the southerly aspect.

A particular attraction is the standard and quality of finishing and internal fixtures and fittings.


Sunnybank is located at the end of a private tarmac access road, over which full access rights exists. The roadway leads to this property only. The wooded common area wraps around the southern and eastern boundaries with open countryside to the north. Lane Head is a small hamlet of properties situated just north of the village of Eaton Bishop. The village itself has a vibrant local community and is easily accessible to Hereford city some 4 miles to the east with the M50 motorway links available in nearby Ross on Wye and Ledbury some 16 and 22 miles respectively.
