This grand detached country house is set within 2 acres of attractive gardens, beautifully presented with formal lawn, walled garden, arboretum and pretty rosebeds. The holiday property dates back 200 years and is full of character, with an open fire, multi-fuel burners, beams and chandeliers, and has been tastefully decorated by its current owners, who live next to the grounds.
This lavish retreat is an ideal location from which to explore the surrounding rolling countryside and the many villages with black-and-white timbered houses and inns. The nearby market town of Ross-on-Wye has many historic buildings and public cliff-top gardens offering excellent views of the River Wye, and Hereford is well worth a visit, with its cathedral (which contains the famous Mappa Mundi and Chained Library), museums, art galleries and bustling mid-week market.
Also enjoy our national heritage in Monmouth, a Tudor border town associated with Henry V. Or visit Hay-on-Wye, famous for its books and festivals. Close by is Kilpeck Church, perhaps the best preserved Norman church in the country. Symonds Yat offers everything from gentle rambles to canoeing within its magnificent natural setting, or join the network of pathways comprising the Wye Valley walk. Shop 2 miles, pub serving excellent food, 600 yards.
