70 Wood Bevington is a quintessential 'chocolate box' Grade II listed cottage, on the open market for the first time in many generations. Although having been the subject of some up grading in the last few years (Kitchen & Bathroom fittings), it would now benefit from further work and perhaps (STPP & LBC) an extension to provide further accommodation on what is a large and generous plot. The property would make an ideal home or perhaps letting or holiday cottage situated as it is within easy reach of Shakespeares Stratford , the Cotswold and Malvern Hills.

Secluded, but not isolated located in the hamlet of Wood Bevington, southwest of Alcester, the property is ideally located for access to Stratford-on-Avon, Worcester, Redditch and Birmingham. The national motorway network M5 and M42 are within easy driving distance, with railway stations at Evesham and Warwick Parkway for London and Redditch, on the cross city line for Birmingham city centre. Locally Hillers Farm Shop and Cafe provide a wide range of local produce.
