Guild Homes commemorates National Tree Week with an Orchard

Guild Homes helped to commemorate National Tree Week at its development of converted 17th century barns in Llanrothal, by planting not just one tree, but a whole orchard of 50 fruit trees, all native to South Herefordshire. From pear trees to plum trees and even apple trees, it will be a sight to see come summer next year.

National Tree Week, which runs from 27th November to 5th December, is initiated by The Tree Council, which aims to promote the importance of trees and their preservation in a changing environment and Guild Homes was keen to do its bit to help. 

Jeff Guest, managing director of Guild Homes, comments: “We were excited to take part in this year’s National Tree Week. Llanrothal is a picturesque and rural location, so we realise the importance of preserving the beauty that trees and greenery afford, which is why we were compelled to contribute to the efforts of this week and wanted to go that one step further by planting a whole orchard.”

Guild Homes’ stunning development is situated approximately five miles away from the town of Monmouth, presenting converted 17th century stone barns which have been transformed into a single six bedroom home and a further five, three and four bedroom properties.

The luxury homes have been sympathetically built to combine a contemporary interior, whilst maintaining the character of the building and retaining some original features, including wooden beams. Prices start at £295,000 and go up to £1m, and all the homes feature fantastic living spaces, with high specification kitchens and bathrooms, along with well-proportioned bedrooms. Add to that dining areas for entertaining and these properties are the ideal place to call home.

Plus, anyone who buys at Llanrothal will be in good company, as the Prince of Wales has a sprawling estate approximately ten miles away* at nearby Harewood Park, where Prince William is rumoured to be setting up home, once his three year service with the RAF is finished.

Buying a home in Llanrothal offers more than just somewhere to live, it provides a new lifestyle. Located in a rural village, the homes are surrounded by miles of rolling countryside and greenery. Its seclusion means you can be in a world of your own, with peace and tranquillity and makes the ideal setting for those looking to make an escape to the country, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. However, its links to nearby Monmouth and Hereford means the shopping and amenities of these larger towns are within easy reach.

These magnificent homes are available to view by appointment only, so please call Guild Homes on 0800 032 2823 to make a booking. Alternatively, please visit for more details.
