Imagine a place where time stands still, where the echoes of history mingle with the whispers of the river. Welcome to an extraordinary haven nestled within the heart of the breath-taking Wye Valley – a place that has enchanted generations. Step into a world where tradition dances harmoniously with modernity, where the Wye River serenades your senses, and where a truly charming residence awaits offering up to 5 bedrooms and just under an acre of grounds and woodland. Ladies & Gentlemen, welcome to Yew Tree Cottage.

But the enchantment doesn't stop at your doorstep. Explore the village of Tintern and its surroundings, and you'll discover a wealth of outdoor pursuits, from scenic hikes to serene river walks. The area's rich history as the birthplace of British tourism in the 19th century is a testament to its enduring allure. The village of Tintern itself is a tapestry of culture and heritage, attracting visitors from around the world to its majestic Tintern Abbey, a place steeped in centuries of history, plus offering a range of pubs, cafés and restaurants. The nearby towns of Chepstow & Monmouth offer a full range of additional amenities including both public and private schooling. For those who love the great outdoors, the nearby Forest of Dean provides even more activities.

Step Inside

As you cross the threshold of this picturesque cottage, you are greeted by an ambience of charm and character. The period cottage was extended some years ago but still retains its original features with exposed stone walls, beams and fireplaces this detached character cottage boasts up to five bedrooms, each offering panoramic views of the grounds plus the enchanting Wye Valley. Here, mornings are a symphony of nature, with the gentle embrace of the valley and the soothing serenade of the river.

The heart of the home reveals an impressive open living-dining room, where both ends of the room offer fireplaces, one is open with an original stone staircase to the side and the second offers a second log-burning stove at the other of the room. The dining area features a charming bay window, a haven for reading or simply soaking in the valley's beauty. An archway leads seamlessly to the kitchen, ideal for being connected to those larger celebrations and gatherings, where although lined with a mass of cupboards there is still room for a breakfast table and four chairs. The adjacent storeroom could make an ideal pantry which already boasts a large built-in cupboard but potentially this area could be incorporated into the kitchen should you fancy creating a larger space.

Yet, this house is not just about aesthetics; it's designed for convenience and flexibility. A spacious utility room doubles as a boot room, a haven for shedding muddy boots after a countryside adventure. One of the five bedrooms, with its own garden access, serves as a private primary bedroom or a charming sitting room. Picture yourself sipping morning coffee on the terrace, or sharing a glass of wine under the stars, surrounded by the tranquil woodland that graces your backyard. The fifth bedroom, strategically designed as a home office, transcends the ordinary. Here, work is not just a task; it's a creative journey inspired by the river's ever-changing moods.

There is a spacious family bathroom on the first floor as well as a ground-floor cloakroom off the entrance porch. There is also a separate shower room leading off the utility room which subject to consent, you could remove to create an internal walkway into the garaging which if converted would create further living accommodation, ideal for multi-generational living.

Step Outside

This property transcends the boundaries of a mere house; it's a vast playground for nature enthusiasts and explorers. Set on an expansive plot of 0.99 acres, including a woodland wonderland, it's an ideal canvas for children's adventures and camping escapades. The rear gardens display a large patio area enjoying views across the valley, perfect for summer entertaining. To the fore there is a cosy patio area which is quite the sun trap with a substantial gated drive that extends a warm welcome, providing parking for several vehicles. The large double garage, with the potential for conversion, opens up exciting possibilities.
