Steve & Helen Craddock
The House was built in 1877, the building was in very poor condition when me and my wife purchased it in January 2007. It has been a real labour of love to get the house back to what it is today, but both feel very lucky to be able to live in such a lovely house so close to the City.
Myself and my wife were both born and grew up in Hereford so we see our self's has true Herefordians and love the City and surrounding countryside making it an ideal place to go walking.
There are local pubs near by serving good pub grub and a varied selection of restaurants within walking distance .Hereford Cathedral is recommended with the Mappa Mundi exhibition. Hereford cider Museum and other smaller cider producers are also well worth visiting.
