One-of-ten charming properties dating back to the 14th century, set within attractive shared gardens and situated in the picturesque Wye Valley on the outskirts of the village of Goodrich.

This property is situated on the outskirts of the village of Goodrich in the picturesque Wye Valley, and is a pleasant walk from the village’s imposing medieval castle, which is maintained by English Heritage. Those who love to spend time in nature will relish the walks around Symonds Yat Rock, an ancient hill fort offering breath-taking views across the valley below. Symonds Yat West Leisure Park is also nearby and offers a fun day out for all ages, with plenty of space to play games, adventure playgrounds, river boat cruises, and a fun go-kart track. It isn’t all countryside pursuits though, as Ross-on-Wye, Hereford, and Gloucester are all within easy reach.

On entering this unusual property, guests will find themselves in the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. With its exposed stone walls and deep-set windows, there is a real sense of history in this room, and when the wood burner is lit in the evenings there is a wonderfully cosy atmosphere. The sofas and armchairs provide somewhere comfortable to relax whilst watching the TV/DVD, whilst the grand dining table, which seats up to ten guests, is a great place for enjoying sociable mealtimes together. The kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst a washing machine and tumble dryer for guests can be found in the onsite shared laundry room. Narrow, cottage-style stone stairs lead to the first floor, where there is a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. Also on this floor is a separate WC. Another set of stairs lead to the second floor, where the two further bedrooms are located: a double room and a triple room, with a double bed and additional single bed, making it perfect for a couple with a young child. The bathroom on this floor has a shower-over-bath and WC.

Outside, guests have access to the spacious shared gardens where they will find picnic benches and seating scattered around the lawns, offering the perfect place to enjoy a picnic or simply relax in the attractive surroundings.

We had a great time thank you. Peony was perfect, not just lovely to look at but also having everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We loved the fact that we did not use the car all weekend. Beautiful countryside and relaxing walks. The pub did an amazing Sunday lunch to finish off our stay. We will most certainly come again!
