Full description

An APPEALING AND VERSATILE STONE BUILT HOUSE, in the heart of the lower Wye Valley amidst the wooded slopes above Tintern. It is secluded and very private, surrounded by its own paddock land, in an idyllic, elevated yet sheltered, setting with stunning views across the Wye Valley toward The Forest of Dean. The final approach off a well stoned forestry track and there are miles of unspoilt woodland walks and good outriding on the doorstep.

Originally this was a tiny cottage for a forestry woodman and it has evolved over the years with stone built extensions on either side to now provide a spacious family house, full of character and flexible, including a huge drawing room, beamed dining room, recently refitted breakfast kitchen and 4 bedrooms, off three staircases with potential for a self-contained annexe. CCTV.

Outside are lovely gardens with large terrace and outstanding views, a Summer House/Studio and EXCELLENT EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES. These include a stone built Stable Block with Tack Room, Three Loose Boxes, 2 Barns and a Garage. Within the surrounding four fields is an all-weather manege.

This delightful country property is not only an ideal equestrian base, but would equally suit two families, or merely those who want to 'get away from it all', with the option of working from home from the Summer House/Studio - an office with a view!

The Wye Valley is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but is easily accessible. Both Monmouth and Chepstow are each about 9 miles and have motorway class connections as well as excellent shopping, educational and cultural facilities. The M48 (Severn Bridge) and a main line railway station can be accessed at Chepstow.
