This property is located in a central location of the very popular village of Sutton St Nicholas in north-east Herefordshire, yet is just a short drive from the City of Hereford.

The oldest part of Robinscroft is believed to date from the 1700s and made of timber framed construction with a significant Edwardian red-brick addition in the early 1900s. This attractive house, which is situated in a conservation area and was once the village post-office and shop, is beautifully presented retains some original features to include traditional beams and sash windows, all of which have been re-conditioned.
