Property Summary


Penny Patch is a detached three bedroomed cottage of about 1,330 sq.ft (123 sq.m) probably dating from the 17th century constructed from stone with timber beamed interior, set in half an acre of level garden fronting the village common. (The English/Welsh border is formed by the road
immediately outside the property). The cottage has three reception rooms, a rear kitchen with hall and downstairs bathroom. The stone walls have been exposed with thick plaster walls uncovering the decorative wall beams and lintels. An inglenook fire place is located within the main sitting / dining room and snug.
A vaulted music room has been added to adjoin the original snug around a second stone chimney with wood burning stove. On the first floor there is a large landing area providing access to two bedrooms with dormer windows and above the rear extension a further bedroom and a second bathroom.
The cottage has been improved with double glazing, ledged and braced timber doors, conservatories and two high quality solid fuel stoves, one of which provides the main form of central heating. The staircase has been repositioned which creates a spacious landing room which is used as a study or extra bedroom.

Brilley is a small village sitting on the border between England and Wales. It is about 5.7 miles south of Kington, 6.3 miles north of Hay-on-Wye and 20 miles north-west of Hereford.
The attractive elevated settlement is surrounded by meadows, orchards, and ancient woodlands with far-reaching views of the Black Mountains. The local church of St Mary’s dates from the 12th Century and the village hall hosts a varied programme of local events. Brilley is due south of Hergest Ridge and Offa’s Dyke which offers unrivalled opportunities for walking.
The neighbouring town of Kington retains thriving livestock, food and craft markets. In addition it caters for a wide range of cultural and leisure pursuits. This includes an attractive riverside cricket ground, and an 18
