Louise Wild purchased this barn in 2002
Why Louise Wild chose Malvern
We used to live in the Cotswolds and moved south of the River Severn to a property with land, we have found the local residents to be far more friendly than our Cotswold counterparts! The property is in a delightful unspoilt rural location, it is quiet and dark at night, if you like bright lights and city life it may not be the right place for you.
What makes this barn unique
Peace and quiet at the end of a no through road with fabulous walks from the doorstep. Outdoor heated swimming pool, tennis court, games room and woodland walk with private badger hide.
