Introduction The Old Vicarage is situated in the pretty village of Kimbolton amidst lovely unspoilt North Herefordshire countryside.

Kimbolton lies on the Herefordshire Plateau. Natural England describes the Plateau as having “a deeply tranquil rural character” and being “one of the treasures of the area, as it has largely escaped the pressures of modern development”.

Kimbolton has an excellent pub - The Stockton Cross, a church, a primary school and village hall. The historic market town of Leominster lies just 3 miles to the south west, Ludlow 10 miles north and Tenbury Wells, 6 miles north east.

The Old Vicarage is the principal house in the village, constructed in 1904 it is set in just over half an acre of mature gardens in an elevated position enjoying stunning views to the surrounding countryside. It is a peaceful location with lovely views to St James Church at the rear.
