About the property

Cottage in Bridstow, Nr. Ross on Wye, Herefordshire, England - Peaceful Countryside Location With Easy Access to Ross-on-Wye and Local Attractions

Orchard Cottage is a converted cider house situated in it's own garden in an orchard setting.

The cottage has a ground floor double bedroom with a king size bed, Also on the ground floor is a twin bed room with two single beds and an ensuite bathroom with a shower. The loft room is smaller and has two single beds and is ideal for small children or one adult.

The family bathroom is on the ground floor and near to the double bedroom. The separate shower room is next to this bathroom.

The kitchen is equipped with a full size oven, dishwasher, microwave and an under work top fridge with a freezer compartment.

Linen, heating, electricity and WiFi is included along with the use of a hard tennis court and five fishing lakes. I can provide towels for a separate charge, although most bring their own.

The cottage is 2 miles from Ross-on-Wye and an ideal base to explore the Forest of Dean, The Golden Valley and Monmouthshire.

We are sorry, but we are unable to accept dogs and other pets.

"Maria and Sean, We have had a wonderful time and want to thank you both for your hospitality. We feel we have found our perfect haven and hope to see you soon. Thank again."

- Tina & Steve, Cheshire

"Dear Maria, Thank you so much for making our stay in Herefordshire so enjoyable. Your efforts to include extra bedding for the children were much appreciated (as were the latest acquisition of a football net!). We all had a wonderful time and felt relaxed and recharged to return to 'The Smoke'! Best wishes."
