The property

Nestled in the quaint village of Wilton, within easy reach of the bustling town of Ross-on-Wye is this charming, fronted apex property, Old Pump Cottage.

This sweet, one-bedroom property is idyllically settled near excellent amenities and is the perfect hideaway for a romantic getaway to the countryside.

Drive up the single lane, dotted with terraced cottages and find a roadside parking space to move your luggage inside with ease.

Enter through the metal gate and admire the lovely front lawn before stepping inside the welcoming abode.

Entering the property, discover the little lobby where you can hang your coats and store your walking boots away from the main rooms.

Be greeted by a stunning, open-plan living space, boasting characterful beamed ceilings, a red, electric stove and stylish rugs for a homely look.

Step over to the contemporary kitchen, featuring an exposed stone wall and duck-egg cupboards housing fantastic facilities to assist with your self-catering experience.

There is an oak breakfast bar as well as a chic dining area for two to enjoy candle-lit meals, where you can uncork a bottle of wine and toast to a wonderful getaway.

Curl up on the corner sofa in the sitting area, beautifully lit with natural light from the patio doors, where you can unwind in front of the large TV or relish a compelling novel.

Admire the sunset in the rear garden, here you can relax on the outdoor seating and your canine companion can stretch their legs around the enclosed lawn.

As the sky grows dark, retreat inside and climb upstairs to indulge in warming bubble-bath in the free-standing bath and you can leave your towel on the heated rail to wrap up in afterwards.

Get your rest ahead of another adventurous day in the delightful double bedroom with olive green feature walls, exposed beams and tasteful furniture.

In the morning, prepare for the day ahead in the walk-in shower for a refreshing rinse before enjoying a steaming cup of coffee at the breakfast bar.

The River Wye is just paces away from the cottage for a tranquil stroll or get better acquainted with your surroundings and venture to the local pub for a home-cooked meal with your other half.

Nearby is the best-preserved castle in England, Goodrich Castle, offering panoramic views of the rolling countryside and Thomas Blake Memorial Garden, which offers a pretty place to wander as well as a café for some lunch.

Venture into the market town of Ross-on-Wye for a fabulous 16th century Market House to grab fresh fruits and various meats, learn about beautiful insects at The Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo or for those who love the outdoors, you can hire a canoe on the River Wye for some fun in the water.

Embark on an adventure to Symonds Yat Rock for remarkable views of unspoilt countryside from an ancient hill fort, which hosts a log cabin café to reward yourself after hiking up the hill; the area is popular for Peregrine Falcons so be sure to look out for rare birds whilst exploring the trails.

For a romantic escape with your loved one, choose Old Pump Cottage.
