LOCATION - Orchard View is located in the heart of the historic village of Lyonshall, first mentioned in the Doomsday Book in 1086 and one of the largest parishes in Herefordshire, with a largely agricultural economy.

The nearby market town of Kington offers a good range of everyday amenities including community hospital, library, leisure centre, primary and secondary school and doctor's surgery. More extensive and cultural opportunities are available in the Cathedral City of Hereford.
