    “What a wonderful place to say, was very comfortable for both us people and dogs one of the party was 100 years old and she thought the bungalow was fantastic as well.”

    Had everything you could need for a fantastic holiday, the only little quibble would be having a mirror of some sort in the second double/twin (zip link) room and a waste bin the rooms as well, but that is just a personal preference also a second W.C of some sort would not go amiss. The location was rural but close enough to Ross on Wye just to pop to for a bit of shopping. Its an ideal place to be to explore further afield, we went to Stratford Upon Avon and Oxford both of which were beautiful places. Unfortunately we had a week of pouring rain so the country lanes were some times like rivers but that did not spoil the experience. The owners were very friendly and we appreciated the cake and milk that were left for us. Our dogs enjoyed the garden behind the house but as they were 2 small dogs we had to find a way to block the gates as they could fit through the gaps so they didn't wander off. Overall I would highly recommend Jacobs Orchard and would hope to stay again.

The property

This detached bungalow rests in the village of Hope Mansell providing guests with a memorable holiday experience all-year-round.

Whether relaxing indoors or outside, families or friends can make the most of the wonderful cottage and its superb location.

The lovely kitchen is perfect for preparing those home-cooked meals at your own leisure and the L shaped, open-plan sitting/dining area is centred by a woodburner and characterful fireplace.

You can relax here from morning through to evening.

Three bedrooms make up the formation, a front-facing king-size double room, a twin, and a separate super king-size double.

Accessed from the central hallway, each benefits from lovely views and promises a good nights sleep from one day to the next.

The family bathroom is complete with both a shower and a bath, finished to a high standard so you can get ready at ease or unwind in comfort after a long day.

The cottage stands in large grounds with gardens on three sides, where you can simply relax or enjoy a barbecue on a sunny afternoon.

In the area there are a selection of adventure/outdoor activites to explore, as well as watersports on the River Wye.

About the location


Ross-on-Wye 4 miles; Symonds Yat 8 miles; Hereford 15 miles.

Hope Mansell is set in a very secluded green valley on the edge of the Forest of Dean. It is sheltered by hills to the south, east and west by the high ground of Wigpool, Lea Bailey and Howle Hill. The village of Hope is mentioned in the Domesday Book and borders the wonderful Wye Valley, enjoying views towards the Royal Forest of Dean. Hope Mansell is ideally located between the delightful historic market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, whose timbered Tudor buildings, striking 17th century market halls, majestic bridges, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants suit all tastes. Explore famous Goodrich Castle, a perfect example of a 12th century "Marcher Castle", or enjoy the renowned walks along Offa's Dyke and the Wye Valley Walk. Visitors to this area can also enjoy day trips to delightful Hay-on-Wye, the Black Mountains and the scenic Brecon Beacons National Park. Also recommended is a visit to nearby Hereford with its historic cathedral, museums and a tremendous variety of shops and restaurants.
