The cottage, in Ross-on-Wye, has origins in 1750, at approximately the time when the town started to gain popularity as a spot from which to explore the river and the Wye Valley.

There is also a secluded rear garden with further flower borders and seating areas, as well as a covered parking area and a workshop. 

The property is being sold by Steve Gooch Estate Agents for a guide price of £400,000. 

The agent commented: “A truly charming and wonderfully attractive three bedroom semi-detached cottage ideally situated in a peaceful location on the fringes of Ross on Wye offering deceptively spacious and quirky accommodation throughout. 

“The cottage has its roots as far back as circa 1750 and this sense of age and character has been thoughtfully retained and cleverly blended with more modern additions.”
