Room in Kington town centre, sharing house
The house is right in Kington town centre, spacious and has character. It has a large back garden which is walled and hence very private, a real sun trap in summer and we have 2 ducks, so fresh eggs too when they are laying! The garden is full of fruit and nut trees. There is a cat living here too, she is well behaved.
The house is old, built around 1750, not modernised, however it is centrally heated and all rooms are either double or secondary glazed. It is within 1 minutes walk of all the shops and town facilities.
The room is large, about 13' by 13' (4m x 4m). It is simply furnished with a bed, chair, chest of draws, bookshelf, clothes rail. It looks over the back garden so it is quiet (although Kington is quiet anyway). There is a sky dish with the cables running into the room, you would need all your own equipment, etc to plug into the cables.
There is also a shared lounge downstairs.
Free council parking is available within 50 yards, I have been using this car park for many years and never had the slightest problem with my car there.
The house is no smoking and the room is for a single, working, professional.
References from your previous landlord and current employer are required. I have a written lodgers agreement which I will give you to look over and sign before moving in.
This is a relaxed house assuming you are sensitive to sharing and mature in outlook and behaviour. I am very easy going with people who don't take advantage of it and I enjoy sharing the house. I love the local area and mid Wales; walking, cycling and generally exploring the outdoors.
Kington is a lovely market town on the Welsh Marches about 20 miles from Hereford, 13 from Hay on Wye and 25 from Ludlow. It is old fashioned but with great local facilities and good local food. In the summer it hosts a town festival for a couple of weeks and in autumn a four day walking festival. It also has a great christmas food market which brings in hundreds of visitors and is locally renowned. The walking is fantastic here, with five long distance footpaths coming through the town and great empty countryside within very easy reach, Hergest Ridge comes right down into town.
I am self employed, running management development programmes in group psychology. This means that I am preparing work at home for periods of time and then occasionally away running residential courses.
