Access Statement

Introduction

Huntlands Farm is a working farm situated on the Gaines Road, just off the A44 Worcester to Leominster road, on the outskirts of the village of Whitbourne. Worcester is nine miles away, Hereford is eighteen miles and Malvern, fifteen miles.

The smooth, level driveway that runs alongside the farmyard takes you to the blue, front door of the red brick Georgian frontage.

We offer five super king bedrooms, four of which are en suite and the fifth has its own private shower room across the landing.

The house is a listed building so there are some features that may pose a problem for people with mobility problems.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01886 821955 or email lucy@huntlandsfarm.co.uk.
