A hidden gem offering versatile accomodation with a fantastic business opportunity to revive a successful B&B business. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and grounds of a little over 6 acres.
About Hidden away along a leafy single track lane on the edge of West Wellow and Sherfield English is this delightful Grade II listed house. Wellow Mead comes to the market for the first time in 43 years. In this time, the property has evolved bringing together the historic charm of beamed rooms with sympathetic extensions that have created a warm and inviting home set in a truly tranquil position. Furthermore, the outbuildings that lie within the gardens have been converted into guest suites, The Onion Store, Apple Store and Grain Store and the Sheep House serves as a wonderful studio. The flexibility and opportunity that Wellow Mead offers is considerable. For many years the current owners have run a highly successful bed and breakfast business and a new owner could do so again or perhaps run a holistic wellbeing retreat in this peaceful setting. The House The drive, lined with majestic Poplar Trees winds its way past the paddocks and gardens of Wellow Mead to a parking area in front of the house which dates back to 1690. The front door opens into the entrance hall which is the central point from which all the principal reception areas and bedrooms can be reached. Attractive glimpses of the patio that lies off the sitting room, adorned with an orange climbing Trumpet Vine draws you in to explore. Both the kitchen and sitting room are superbly connected and large oak ceiling to floor windows in the sitting room framing the patio and gardens that lie beyond. The indoor swimming pool provides an additional area for entertaining as it connects directly to the sitting room but also has a small kitchen where light lunches or suppers can be enjoyed beside the pool. Heading back to the entrance hall, the snug and office reside in the older section of the house and a staircase in the snug leads to an independent bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Three further bedrooms are arranged off the landing which is reached from the main staircase in the entrance hall. The principal suite has a panelled ensuite bathroom and a Jack and Jill bathroom serves the two remaining bedrooms. Gardens and Grounds The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of Wellow Mead and there are numerous paths that wind through the garden to reveal delightful patios and points to sit and enjoy the peace, tranquillity and wildlife that appears to feel at ease within this environment. Surrounding the gardens are the main acreage of Wellow Mead which comprise two meadows. This as well as providing a wonderful wild habitat, could also be used as paddocks for those with equestrian needs.
