Location & Description
Hornhill Cottage occupies an elevated and tranquil location just under 5 miles south east of the market and tourist town of Ross-on-Wye and enjoys truly stunning views across beautiful countryside and the dispersed village of Hope Mansell. The City of Gloucester is some 11 miles away to the east, whilst Monmouth is some 9 miles to the south west. For those requiring the motorway network, the M50 motorway/A40 dual carriageway can be accessed either at Ross-on-Wye or at Whitchurch, between Ross & Monmouth.

The detached cottage has a most attractive stone and rendered façade under a double pitched slate roof, each of the four main rooms having double glazed windows to both front and rear elevations, creating wonderfully light accommodation. Plans have previously been passed for an extension to the south west of the cottage, and the beautiful nature of the location means that a potential purchaser may well be interested in activating that consent.

The current equestrian owner has invested in a pair of excellent Warwick Foaling Stables, a 33\' x 16\'6 Hay Barn and 24\' x 12\' Field Shelter, as well as fencing the two paddocks and improving the excellent gravelled approach drive.

There is outstanding riding in the immediate vicinity, comprising miles and miles of bridle pathways and track ways in the extensive woodland in the surrounding area.

This factor, together with the views that you will see on approach, will almost alone be enough to tempt many people! In detail the property comprises:-

Reception Hall
With appealing, travertine effect ceramic floor tiles and part glazed hardwood door to exterior.

Living Room approx 12\'10 x 12\'3
A wonderfully light room having wide, double glazed windows to both front and rear elevations, each enabling a beautiful outlook across rolling countryside towards wooded hillsides in the far distance.

Two wall mounted light fittings and ceiling mounted, centre light fitting. Slimline night storage heater.

A wide metal gate opens onto a firmly based, gravelled driveway which leads down between the Two Sloping Paddocks, past a stoutly constructed Field Shelter, Two Excellent Warwick Foaling Stables and Bespoke Hay Barn, to terminate in a Turning/Parking Area which lies to the eastern side of the cottage.

Here, an Attractively Paved Sun Terrace with inset quadrant of gravel, is a beautiful spot in which to sit and take in the Stunning Views across the Hope Mansel Valley.

The aforementioned Warwick Stables are of excellent and substantial wooden construction and are of overall dimensions approx 28\' x 12\' with a 3\' overhang and guttering to front. Naturally they are supplied with lighting, power and water. They stand under a double pitched onduline roof. In front and to the western side of the stables is a concreted forecourt largely surrounded by Bespoke fencing. The Hay Barn close by is of overall external dimensions approx 33\' x 16\'6, and this has a mono pitched felted roof, and has light and power points.

The whole of the lower portion of the driveway can be contained by a Gated Approach, the excellent five bar wooden gate being 12\' wide.

The paddock to the upper side of the approach drive, also accessed via a 12\' gate, contains the Field Shelter again of stout timber construction under a double pitched onduline roof and being of approx dimensions 24\' x 12\'.
