A lovely spacious cottage 2 miles from Ewyas Harold on the edge of the Golden Valley, with great views over gorgeous rolling countryside towards the Welsh Border. Just perfect for a peaceful getaway, with walks galore and good food on your doorstep.
The cottage used to be a working pottery, hence its name, and there are some wonderful old features, like oak beams and exposed stone work that give it buckets of character. It's a bit of a Tardis inside too, with a good sized kitchen, bathroom (with shower over a bath), upstairs bedroom and a large sitting room.
The Pottery has a homely feel with all the usual mod cons, though please note, there's no Wifi at the moment - so a real chance to escape from it all! There's parking next to the cottage and it shares a mature, colourful garden with the owner's home which is close by. Rowlestone's small picturesque Norman church, with its renowned stone carvings is right next door, and the biggest treat of all (march-october) is a 2 minute walk will take you to Rowlestone Court Farm, where you can enjoy their award-winning ice cream. Seriously good!! No need to travel far to eat out either - Ewyas Harold is just 5 minutes drive and has two pubs serving food, as well as a popular Fish and Chip shop. There's also a village store, Post Office and two Butchers.
Rowlestone is a great base to explore the wonderful Wye Valley - and the Forest of Dean and Brecon Beacons are within easy reach too. If you want a change from wide open spaces, then why not take a trip to the Cathedral city of Hereford (25 mins), or Abergavenny with its bustling markets (25 mins), the pretty border town of Monmouth (35 mins), or beautiful, book-tastic Hay-on-Wye! (45 mins). And if you fancy going a little further afield, Bristol, Cardiff, Chepstow, Worcester and Cheltenham are all within easy reach.
Please note: mobile reception is poor, unfortunately a common problem in these parts!
