Location & Description

Hoarwithy is a picturesque village situated within the Wye Valley AONB. The popular New Harp Inn, which offers local ales, good food and post-office services is a short walk from Withy Cottage. Also on the outskirts of the village are two more excellent pubs, the Loughpool and the Cottage of Content. The village's Italian Romanesque church, St Catherine's, is famous for its campanile and mosaics. The historic riverside town of Ross on Wye is approximately 6 miles distant and offers a wide range of local amenities including Ross Labels Shopping Complex, pubs, hotels, restaurants, small theatre, library and also enjoys a twice weekly market held at the 16th Century Market House, which acts as a focal point for the local community. There are a number of leisure facilities, which include the Swimming pool, Halo Gym and Fitness Centre, and of course, the beautiful River Wye, where scenic walks can be enjoyed. Ross on Wye enjoys excellent road connections being situated in close proximity to Junction 1 of the M50. The city of Hereford with a more more comprehensive range of facilities is located approximately 8 miles distant.

In the style of the Victorian Arts and Crafts movement, complete with stained glass windows, feature staircase and rooftop gargoyles, Withy Cottage was built on the site of an old fisherman's cottage (Folly Cottage) some time between 1907 and 1923. The cottage was named after the withy (willow) trees planted by a former tenant on the banks of the Wye to dry fishing nets on. The house comes with fishing rights (one rod to fish for Salmon, trout and coarse fish) over the bank immediately in front of the house and various other parts of local common land. This charming detached property offers spacious accommodation on the ground floor. A small, enclosed porch leads to a large dining room with original stained glass windows, exposed timbers and feature fireplace. The large living room has a semi-separate sun room with wonderful river views and there is a separate kitchen and third bedroom or study at the back of the property. A generous staircase takes you to the first floor and its spacious landing. The large master bedroom has a semi-separate reading room/ study with large picture window enjoying views to the river. There is also a further bedroom with river views and a bathroom. Outside, steps lead up from the road to a paved foregarden attractively planted with an array of seasonal flowers and bulbs. The property benefits from off-road parking for two vehicles. Under the house is a large storage area, fronted by a door, suitable for storing canoes or other boats. The property offers much scope for improvement to create a truly individual home in a wonderful setting.
