The Old Bakehouse is a fine example of a prestigious Grade 2 listed 18th Century Cotswold stone house set in a central village location. Currently arranged as two separate dwellings, there is much scope for reconfiguration, enlargement, and redevelopment subject to permissions. Within the main house there are currently 4 bedrooms, one bathroom, and two spacious reception rooms, plus a separate self contained one bedroom, one bathroom annexe with a further reception room and it’s own private entrance.

A shared access gravel driveway leads to the rear of the house where double gates provide secure access to a hard standing area, terraces and a large secluded private garden. The whole plot measures approximately 0.25 acres.

Of particular note is the exceptional village location in the centre of Willersey, a picturesque Cotswold village with two locally renowned pubs, a historic church, village hall and extensive green spaces with views of surrounding hills. The location is also very convenient for the North Cotswold villages of Broadway and Chipping Campden as well as Stratford Upon Avon and the wider transport network.

Willersey is a peaceful and historic village in the North Cotswolds region of Gloucestershire, close to the border with Worcestershire The village has a 12th century church, two pubs, a village hall, a primary school (Ofsted rated Good, December 2022), a recreation ground with childrens play area, and a much admired duckpond, among many other community assets and activities. There is a direct rail link to London from nearby Honeybourne (4 miles) or Moreton-in-Marsh (10 miles) and a frequent bus service to nearby local villages and towns.

One of the great attractions of Willersey is that it remains largely unspoilt, being relatively unknown and untouched by tourist routes, and yet retains a vibrant community and is within easy reach of other beautiful North Cotswold villages such as Broadway (2 miles) and Chipping Campden (3 miles).  A large part of the village lies within a conservation area and here on Main Street, tucked away behind the village garage and just a few steps from The Bell Inn is where you will find The Old Bakehouse…
