This former Victorian fishing lodge dates back to 1835 and is set in an extremely private and rural location in the heart of the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty high above the river Wye.

Nestled within a wooded clearing this unique and beautifully presented four storey dwelling is stone built and has been lovingly restored and remodelled to an extremely high standard to cleverly retain and embellish a wealth of original features. Its very interesting and attractive layout provides four bedrooms and a very spacious open plan living and dining room that opens out onto an exceptional full-length veranda facing the river.

On the lower ground floor the sitting room together with the en-suited master bedroom open out onto a terrace extensive taking full advantage of some exceptional riverside and woodland views. The mature landscaped grounds and gardens of approximately 2 acres have been cleverly terraced which includes some useful outbuildings including a detached garden room, studio or gym with shower and wc. On the top terrace is an “L” shaped timber built stable block. The pillared entrance from the shared but privately-owned access lane has a pair of inset electrically operated automated wrought iron gates to the drive that leads down to the extensive parking and turning areas on two levels.

Prospect Cottage has been used in part as an award-winning boutique B&B business. For those wanting a unique and very special home that is off the beaten track a viewing is highly recommended.
