Rowney Priory, named after its historic Benedictine nuns' priory, lies in the small hamlet of Dane End near to the market town of Ware. Sitting on the banks of the River Lea, the town offers a good range of day-to-day amenities and a café bar culture with numerous bars and restaurants. One of the many benefits of the setting is the accessibility to both beautiful countryside and the popular towns of Hertford and Welwyn Garden City, both of which offer more extensive shopping, recreational, leisure and service facilities. The outdoor enthusiast is well catered for, with nearby golf courses including Hanbury Manor, east Herts, Whitehills and Brickendon, numerous bridleways and equestrian facilities in neighbouring villages and a wide range of riverside footpaths and the Hertford Way on the doorstep.

Communications links are excellent: the nearby A10 provides easy access to the M25, London and Cambridge, the A1(M) gives access to the national motorway network and both Ware and Hertford stations offer fast and regular services into central London.

The area offers a good selection of state schooling including Little Munden C of E VC Primary School in the village, Ralph Sadleir School and The Chauncy School (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) together with noted independent schools including Duncombe, Heath Mount, St. Joseph's in the Park, Haileybury, St. Edmund's College and Sherrardswood.


The property is approached over a large gravelled forecourt offering extensive parking and giving access to a timber-framed double garage. The well-maintained enclosed garden lies predominantly to the front aspect and features an expanse of level lawn, with further lawned areas to the side and rear aspects together with a paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, the whole screened by mature hedging.
