Longside is located on the side of Ankerdine Hill, approximately 1.5 miles to the south west of Martley, an extremely popular village with the highly regarded Chantry High School, local garage with village store, public houses and parish church. Worcester City centre is easily accessible and has an excellent range of regional shopping and leisure facilities together with a wide variety of well regarded state and independent schools. The M5 is accessed at Junction 7 to the south of Worcester and beyond this Junction will be located the new Worcester Parkway station opening in 2019.


Longside is a Colt House detached bungalow, with wood clad exterior dating from the 1970's. The property occupies a steeply sloping site with the most amazing distant views over its own land and beyond down the Teme Valley. The property is currently arranged as two bedrooms, both being doubles, a fitted bathroom and at the heart of the property is the large sitting room having a double aspect and central fireplace. To one side is the kitchen fitted with a range of units with a door leading through with steps down to a rear boot room built into the bank at the rear.


The driveway passes in the front of the property leading to a parking area and the detached double garage and workshop. Below the drive is a terrace with surrounding hedgerows providing a wonderful spot to enjoy the distant views. The ground slopes away and is laid to permanent pasture and can be divided into paddocks for grazing as required. Above the property the steep bank is planted as woodland with a pathway leading up to the road. Beyond the garage is a former vegetable patch with raised borders, poly tunnel and a small orchard.

Planning permission

Planning permission was obtained in 2008 for a replacement dwelling - reference 08/01498/FUL. Whilst this consent has lapsed it is thought that a similar consent could be achieved again.


The first section of the steep driveway is owned by Longside, and the neighbour at Bramblewood has access over it. From the electric gates, the drive continues in the ownership of Bramblewood with a right of way for Longside to pass over, in front of Bramblewood and directly through to the electric gate to Longside. No turning is allowed on the driveway adjacent to Bramblewood.
