The property

Yarpole 1.2 miles.

The marvellous detached house of Sunnyside rests in Bircher Common near Yarpole, Herefordshire.

Surrounded by a quaint vista in the popular Bircher Common's grounds, with easy access to Croft Castle and its Parkland, Sunnyside is a peaceful location for a group of six seeking a countryside getaway.

After spotting the sheep who have made the common their home and parking in the two handy off-road spaces, be dazzled by your home-from-homes contemporary exterior.

Make your way up the external steps onto the terrace and enjoy a well-earned rest on the fabulous sofas; the terrace's elevated position really highlights those panoramic views of Herefordshire's greenery.

The house retains a light and fresh feel which you'll immediately notice as you enter the open-plan living space, with its ample windows and neutral tones.

The sitting area is the perfect spot for relaxation, stretch out on the plush sofa as you watch a family-favourite on the TV.

Sunnyside is not only home to one sitting area, but it is home to two, with an extra sitting room situated next door, featuring a woodburning stove, a large deep set velvet sofa, an original inglenook, TV and vibrant accents.

When it's time to cook, continue to the kitchen, a sleek space with impressive wooden worktops and integrated appliances; the space is additionally served by a dishwasher, making cleaning up a breeze!

The dining table is a wonderful socialising spot, with cream, faux leather seats for all the family.

In the evening, venture upstairs to a stylish first-floor, with deep pile grey carpets and glass doors for each room; here is where you can find three bedrooms.

The first bedroom is a magnificent super-king-size that benefits from bi-folding doors that lead to a spacious balcony, where the morning people of the group can enjoy a coffee or a yoga session as the sun rises!

Further along the corridor is an elegant double room that boasts a velvet bed for that luxurious feel, continue to find an adult bunk bed that can sleep the kids or extra group members!

Two fabulous bathrooms can also be found on the first-floor, one containing a double walk-in shower and the other showcasing a roll-top bath.

The outdoor spaces truly compliment the property, with a large front lawn for the kids to play to their heart's content in, as well as a lower-ground-floor side patio where you can relish some peace and quiet on the seating.

Be sure to make the most of Sunnyside's location and venture through the esteemed Croft Castle and its Parkland; not only is the manor house home to remarkable interiors and grounds, but it features a play area for children.

Just over a mile away lies the village of Yarpole, where you can access your amenities; pick up your necessities from the village shop before relishing great quality food and beer at The Bell.
