The property

Fownhope 1 mile.

This beautiful 16th century stone cottage, adjoining the owner's home is located just one mile from the pretty Herefordshire village of Fownhope.

Furnished throughout to a high standard, this cosy cottage is a perfect bolthole for a romantic break or small family holiday. Once a former cider house, the cottage has many original features including wall and ceiling beams and kitchen tiles which can be seen hanging in the hall.

Take in the lovely views as you pull up outside the cottage, then make your way down the steps of the owner's pretty garden to the charming black and white cottage.

As you enter the cottage, the hallway provides a useful hanging space for walking gear, off which is a stylish bathroom which features the exposed stone of the original bread oven.

The modern and functional kitchen, complete with dining table and stone flag floor creates a lovely space to share a romantic meal.

The stone flag floor continues through to the pretty sitting room, which oozes character and boasts a woodburning stove, a perfect room for cuddling on the sofa in front of the fire, on a chilly evening.

There is also a gorgeous single bedroom which is accessed from the sitting room.

Make your way up the wooden staircase to the stunning first floor double bedroom with wooden floor and beautifully decorated, with wallpaper matching the original found by the owner's whilst renovating.

From the bedroom, the south facing balcony makes a great place to relax with a refreshing drink, whilst taking in the wonderful views or listening to the owner's chickens in the orchard next door.

Outside there is a rear enclosed gravelled patio garden with furniture which includes the original cider wheel, so no matter what time of day, you can sit outside and enjoy the sounds of the countryside whilst planning your holiday activities.

There are many walks to enjoy from the doorstep.

The village of Fownhope has two lovely pubs, shops and a butcher, ideal for stocking up on provisions or hop in the car and visit the nearby towns of Hereford, Monmouth or Ross-on-Wye all offering something to suits all tastes.

A stunning cottage, just perfect for a romantic break at any time of year.
