Fancy a cottage with a lovely nine–hole in the garden?

You'll need a spare £700,000

Fancy a cottage with a lovely nine–hole in the garden?Here’s a lovely cottage that comes with its own nine-hole golf course in the garden, but you’ll need a spare £700,000.

It’s a 16th century thatched property, on the market for £695,000, and also includes a bowling green set within two acres of grounds.

Set on a peaceful hillside near the village of Bosbury, Herefordshire, the four-bedroom home has been owned by a family of golfing enthusiasts for more than 50 years.

It dates back to 1580 but the golf course wasn’t built until 1982.

Mr. Hughes, 65, a businessman who runs three companies, said: ‘My wife’s father was a keen golfer so he got a professional golfer called Frank Miller to design a nine-hole reversible pitch and putt course.

‘That was built in 1982. It needs a full-time gardener to maintain it – we have more lawnmowers than the average garden centre – but it works really well.’
