Overview

Woodlands, is a handsome, extensively and expensively renovated, 5 bedroom, detached, family equestrian residence totalling 3,684 square feet. Being set on an extensive 2.6 acre plot, this  stunning and most spacious of family home enjoys enviable panoramic views over the Malvern Hills, in this delightfully peaceful, quintessentially English, Wychavon village.

Church Lench is a village in the civil parish of South Lench’s, in the Wychavon district, in the county of Worcestershire approximately 5.5 miles due north of Evesham and 13 miles due west of Stratford-upon-Avon. It is the largest of the surrounding ‘Lenches’, accommodating the Lenches Sports Club, the Lenches Members’ Club, the ‘outstanding’ Church Lench CE First School, Church Lench preschool and the Church Lench Village Hall.

The name ‘Lench’, shared by five local villages, comes from an Anglo-Saxon word ‘linch’, meaning ‘rising ground, hill’. There are five Lenches. In descending order of size, they are Church Lench, Rous Lench, Atch Lench, Sheriffs Lench and Ab Lench. Ab Lench is often mistakenly called ‘Abbots Lench’, but this is due a clerical error confusing the name of the village with the fact that the Lenches lands were owned for some time by Evesham Abbey. Ab Lench has never gone by the name Abbots Lench.

The ancient parish of Church Lench appears in the Domesday Book of 1086. Its earliest recorded history reveals that it was a gift by Kenred of Mercia to Evesham Abbey in 708. Its church, All Saints, is currently Church of England, and its earliest recorded priest was in residence in 1086. The 12th-century church was significantly extended during the 14th century and the 15th century. Church Lench has been a farming community for all of its recorded history, although the civil parish was renamed from Church Lench to South Lenches on 18 December 2012.

Vendor Comments

We moved into Woodlands in August 2013 and have loved every moment of our time here. The village is great, the people are lovely and the views of the Malvern Hills are amazing, especially during some sunsets.

The house is a great place for anyone with a family to live, offering catchment to first, middle and high schools all with OFSTED ‘excellent’ ratings and is only a 5 minute walk to the village club which has excellent social and sporting facilities.

We have fully modernised the property during our time here and have transformed some of the grounds to provide excellent equestrian facilities. Situated on a quite lane, there is an abundance of local hacking, whilst the property itself is only a 15 minute drive from the renown Allens Hill Equestrian Competition Centre and 45 minutes from both Ace and Lincomb Equestrian and Cross Country facilities.

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to move on, a decision we have taken to allow us to achieve our ambition of creating and running our own equine rehabilitation livery. Our best wishes go to whoever moves into to Woodlands, we have no doubt they will love their time here as much as we have.
