About Lewis Scott

I'm Phil Smith, a local estate agent and the owner of Roscoe Rogers and Knight in Monmouth

Lewis Scott purchased this house in 2005

Why Lewis Scott chose Ross-on-Wye

Its just the perfect place. My parents used to take me here for Sunday lunch when I was a child. When the opportunity to buy and restore it became available I just couldn't resist

What makes this house unique

the peace, quiet, river, terrific walks from the door, the nearby pubs and restaurants and the many many activities right on the doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We had a brilliant time at Holly Tree House and will definitely be coming back" A.M. London.

"We all had a great time and the wonderful house was appreciated by all" S.B. Surrey.

"Thank you for a fabulous stay at Holly Tree House. We had a truly wonderful time, and it enabled us to all have a great catch up. All the children loved it too, and what an idyllic setting right next to the river. Perfect! We were very impressed with the facilities, space and goods at our disposal at the house." - The Robinsons party.
