A gorgeous home right on the Welsh border with fine forest views, plenty of space for entertaining guests, and complete privacy
Imagine opening the front door and seeing nothing but woodland and the nature within it.
That’s what’s on offer with Cobbs Tump – a glorious smallholding on the border between the counties of Monmouthshire and Gloucestershire.
And what’s more, the design of the property makes the most of the natural vista, as a large flagstone patio wraps around two sides of the house. This provides plenty of room for al fresco family meals, entertaining friends, or just lounging around on a warm afternoon.
Inside, a recent extension and refurbishment has seamlessly blended old and new. The kitchen has bi-folding doors offering plenty of sunlight, as well as free-standing units and a Smeg range cooker. The adjoining dining room has a bay window and feature fireplace. This open-plan area is another great entertaining space, especially when the weather isn’t playing ball.
Head through to the sitting room where an inglenook fireplace, with multi-fuel burner and original spiral stone steps to the side, adds to the character of the house.
Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom, a utility room and a shower room, which can be its own self-contained area, if needed.
Upstairs, a master bedroom boasts great views across woodland and over the Wye Valley, fitted wardrobes, and an en-suite shower room. There are also two further double bedrooms, a single and a bathroom with roll-top bath.
Outside, the woodland is a happy blend of newly-planted trees and mature oak and ash, through which paths have been carved, allowing for relaxing strolls (and games of hide and seek!).
The property has three ponds – including one for dragonflies and another for newts – as well as a vegetable garden, wood stores, chicken coops and a garage.
There’s also a two-storey building called the Toll House for which there’s already planning permission to turn into an annexe.
If you’ve always dreamed of living amid the pristine wooded surrounds of the Wye Valley in a house with acres of space and further potential, take a look at lovely Cobbs Tump.
