William Grange is situated at the western edge of Hereford city centre. Here, in this largely traffic-free centre, unspoiled historic architecture sits side-by-side with all you would expect from a modern-day city, from great shopping and eateries to excellent cultural attractions and activities.
Just a 10-minute walk from the city centre, this development has 20-one bed and 34 two-bed apartments available. Each has been beautifully and intelligently designed to make your life easier, from ample storage space to raised ovens. Some even have balconies, offering a great place to relax, enjoying some peace and quiet with a cup of tea or perhaps a glass of wine. What’s more, the communal lounge and landscaped garden are great places for residents to socialise.
Renting one of these apartments means you can enjoy the amenities and services for one monthly payment making budgeting easy. Our House Manager will run the development day-to-day and will be available to you during office hours, while the 24/7 call system and camera entry system guarantee your safety and security.
There’s no need to worry about getting around either, as all floors will be accessible by lift. Alongside a mobility scooter store, there are several bus stops only a 5-minute walk away. Hereford train station also has direct services to Birmingham and Manchester. As far as amenities are concerned, the city centre has everything you could possibly need, from large supermarkets to leisure facilities.

What is an Assured Tenancy?
Assured Tenancy means that you agree to rent the property for a minimum term of 12 months, but after that you can leave at any time as long as you give two months written notice. We can’t ask you to leave unless you have broken the terms of the agreement.
I want to rent. What checks do you carry out and what do I need to prepare?
We’ll ask you to complete a Rental Application Pack and an Income and Expenditure form to get the information we need to do standard background checks. You’ll be asked for proof of income, savings and/or pensions, along with copies of your last three months’ bank statements. You’ll be asked to provide identification documentation that complies with the latest Government Right to Rent regulations – our sales consultants will talk you through what you need.
Do I need to pay a reservation deposit?
Yes, you will need to pay a small refundable reservation deposit to reserve the property. You will also have to pay a security deposit equivalent to five weeks rent when you move in.
What do I have to pay before moving in?
Before you can move into your property, you will need to pay the first month’s rent together with your security deposit, minus the reservation deposit you’ve already paid.
The security deposit is equivalent to five weeks rent. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you know the exact amount you need to pay in plenty of time.
