Property Information

Standing in an elevated and private position on the outskirts of the small village of St Briavels, The Cottage enjoys tremendous panoramic views over the Wye Valley below. Originally a small worker's dwelling, the property benefits from the addition of a much larger, contemporary extension providing bright and spacious accommodation.
Guests will find a fantastic mix of the old and the new when they set foot inside the cottage. The original part of the cottage retains some period features, such as old stone fireplaces and narrow stairs, while the extension has been thoughtfully designed to provide a wonderful feeling of space and comfort. Particularly impressive are the bi-fold doors along one whole wall of the living area bringing the outdoors in. Throw in the spectacular views when you are relaxing on the large patio with a glass or two in the evening and you'll be left with a truly memorable holiday experience.
