Sutton St Nicholas is a pretty, rural village located to the north-east of the Cathedral City of Hereford. Historically known for its Hop fields and the white-faced Hereford cattle, it is still very much an agriculturally-based community today. Situated amongst beautiful Herefordshire countryside, the property is well-placed to enjoy a rural quality of life and village atmosphere, yet is within easy commute of the local market towns, larger towns and cities.
