The property is set in the small village of Pirton in the English county of Worcestershire. The village has been occupied since at least 1086. Pirton has some uncommon features for a village. The most unusual is an 18th-century folly named Pirton Tower near a lake named Pirton Pool. It is one of the remaining artifices which the Earl of Coventry built to add artistic interest to views from the park at his distant estate, Croome Court. Pirton Park was previously part of the Croome Court estate. The fallow deer park was landscaped by Capability Brown whilst he worked on Croome. The Old Smithy has great commuter links to Worcester Parkway (4 miles), Birmingham City Centre (28 miles). There is also a direct train service from Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington and regular services that run to Birmingham. All mileages are approximate.
There is a good level of schooling locally, Norton Juxta Kempsey C of E school (1.7 miles), Kempsey Primary (2 miles), Norton College (2.2 miles). There is also excellent private schooling in Worcester with Kings and the Royal Grammar School.
