The property

A beautiful, detached, stone-built farmhouse, next door to the owners’ hotel in the village of Whitchurch, close to Symonds Yat and the Royal Forest of Dean.

This spacious and well laid-out farmhouse provides an ideal holiday home for a get-together with extended family or a large group of friends, offering welcoming and versatile accommodation over three floors.

The entrance porch provides hanging and boot storage for walking gear and space to dry off dogs and children!

Enter the gorgeous and very well-equipped kitchen with a range cooker as well as a solid fuel Esse range, which provides extra warmth and cooking space.

The kitchen has everything the chef of the party could ask for to cook a celebratory dinner or Sunday lunch for the whole party.

Through the kitchen is a large open plan area with luxurious sofas, a TV and a dining area to seat all guests.

The farmhouse also benefits from a snug, perfect for guests wishing to curl up and relax with a good book in front of the woodburning stove.

Two bedrooms are located on the ground floor, four on the first floor and the master en-suite bedroom takes up the second floor.

All the beds are made up with crisp cotton bed linen, guaranteeing a lovely night’s sleep.

Outside, ball games can be enjoyed in the large enclosed garden which also has a children's play area, garden furniture and a brick built barbecue for those balmy summer evenings.

You can unwind after a day exploring the area in the outdoor sauna or hot tub, and in the evening, why not head to the owners’ superb hotel, serving real ales and excellent food?

Many lovely walks and cycle rides can be enjoyed from the doorstep of the cottage; visit the nearby riverside towns of Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye, or try one of the many activities on offer in the Forest of Dean.

This is a wonderful cottage for a memorable holiday at any time of year.

About the location

SYMONDS YAT

Monmouth 5 miles; Ross-on-Wye 7 miles; Gloucester 23 miles.

The pretty village of Symonds Yat straddles the beautiful River Wye with its natural scenery and magnificent limestone 'rock', popular with climbers and is internationally renowned for its viewpoint. Symonds Yat West is situated overlooking the beautiful Wye Valley, and is close to the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Visit the historic town of Monmouth with its mixture of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses and delightful riverside walks, both offering excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Just a little further afield discover the unspoilt Malvern Hills, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park. A great area to unwind with family and friends.
