Valley View Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
This property is a lovely stone built barn conversion. The building is part of an 11 acre smallholding set in a perfect rural location on the slopes of Howle Hill overlooking the spectacular Wye Valley. This superb holiday accommodation has been carefully converted to combine contemporary, high quality workmanship and fittings with a comfortable, welcoming country cottage ambience. Large and airy open plan living spaces marry perfectly with warm and cosy, wood burning stoves to create a relaxing living area. The cottage has a pretty patio area for stylish outdoor living with beautiful countryside views. As the ideal location to explore the beautiful walks and cycle routes of Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, this tranquil and welcoming cottage is also the perfect base for going further afield to the fascinating and thriving towns of Ross-on-Wye, Monmouth, Symonds Yat and Ledbury. Treat someone special to a romantic retreat in this fabulous cottage.

Area
Howle Hill is a tiny hamlet that nestles on the hills overlooking the stunning Wye Valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Perfectly located between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, two ancient market towns with magnificent timbered Tudor buildings, old market halls, great shops, restaurants and pubs, Howle Hill has spectacular views towards the Royal Forest of Dean. The lovely River Wye offers many recreational opportunities – take a stroll along the banks, hop on a scenic river cruise or take in the breathtaking views from the vantage point of a hot air balloon. Venture to the 12th century Goodrich Castle, or stride out along Offa's Dyke or the Wye Valley Walk - why not take the ferry to the Wye Valley Visitors Centre too?

Region
Herefordshire offers visitors the chance to journey through lush green countryside, enjoying splendid black-and-white timbered villages, a magnificent cathedral city, a fairytale Georgian castle at Eastnor or books galore in famous Hay-on-Wye.

Mrs Turner

The cottage was lovely, absolutely everything we needed was in it. The views of the valley were stunning and it was so peaceful.

When we arrived we were knocked out by the views and location. All needs are provided for and we received a lovely welcome from the owners. The cottage is a real home from home and perfectly placed for exploring Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire, plus a path outside the property leading directly onto the Wye Valley Walk. Don't miss Litttle Dean Jail for a weird day out...and for a more tranquil adventure (but equally eerie!) Clearwell Caves is a must. This place is a real gem!

We were snowed in for some time - this feels like the best place to be when this happens. The place is cosy and well equipped.

The cottage was so quiet and peaceful, and beautifully appointed inside. We loved the fact that there was a dining space despite only one bedroom!

A perfect holiday! The owners were very welcoming. The cottage was outstanding - 5*. Beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. Their taste in everything matched ours. 'Mill Race Pub' in the village serves excellent food. Symond Yat River Cruises were fantastic. 'Three Choirs Vineyard' for wine tasting was superb.
Mr Bell

Yet another excellent property from Sykes. Wonderful for a romantic weekend break and to get away from the rat race.

An absolutely gorgeous little cottage! Possibly the most peaceful place I have ever been it was a wonderful base for a restful break in this beautiful part of the world. We were made very welcome and the alpacas, sheep and dogs were very popular neighbours for our children! Thank you we loved it

Five star accommodation in a great location, booking made easy by Sykes, will use you again.

We had a super stay here and did plenty of walking directly from the cottage. The cottage itself was very clean and well equipped but the shower-room sink made wet shaving rather difficult! Similarly the circular stairway did not allow much freedom, but all in all...super!

Ideal cosy cottage furnished to a high standard. The hosts were warm, welcoming and accommodating and left us a lovely welcome basket of local produce. The views from the cottage are stunning and there are direct walks from the property and surrounding areas. There is a wealth of information provided within the property which included Local areas of interest including Leominster which has a small market, and has numerous tea shops and Tudor buildings, Hay on the Wye which is a book town and well worth a visit. Monmouth with the Nelson Museum, and the Courts. Crafts centres including Taurus crafts and the Hop Pocket Village are also worth a mention. The area has lots of attractions for families and children and local pubs are accessible by car or a steep walk.

Beautiful home from home cottage. Wood burning stove easy to use - very cosy property - perfect for chilly autumn evenings. Couldn't fault anything. Love this part of the country. So much to see and do - even in late Autumn! Sunset at at Tintern Abbey only beaten by watching the moon rise over the valley. Will definitely return and recommend :-)
