2 bed (sleeps 3) Cottage in Hoarwithy, Nr. Ross on Wye, Herefordshire
About Antonia Cuthbert
I worked in the City until after my children were born. I bought our house in Herefordshire as a bolthole from London and to be near my family. We now have 2 children and 2 dogs and Herefordshire is my favourite county in the whole of the UK. Being able to share the cottage next door with other families who enjoy the surroundings as much as we do gives me great pleasure. My husband has recently retired enabling us to live at home for the first time in 20 years!
Antonia Cuthbert purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Antonia Cuthbert chose Hoarwithy
This village is our home and our house is next door to this cottage. We bought it because we had the opportunity and decided to do self-catering holiday lets. Herefordshire is one of the most beautiful (in my opinion) counties in England and certainly one of the least spoilt. As you will see from the views from the cottage, it is stunning countryside and while public transport is is not great that adds to the charm of the county. From the River Wye to the Black Mountains, Malvern Hills and Forest of Dean there is outstanding natural beauty and we hope visitors will enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
The peace of the countryside and watching the seasons change over the Wye Valley are very special features. In winter especially the cottage is very cosy with a very effective wood burning stove and it is a wonderful place to just hide away in for a few days.

great fishing base for two anglers
We used the cottage as a base for fishing on the river wye, it was perfect for our needs. A short walk down an almost hidden pathway takes you down to the New Harp inn where we enjoyed a couple of meals and a few drinks to refresh us after several hours on the bank! So conveniently placed. Cottage is very well equipped with everything you could need. Would definitely consider booking again if travelling in a small party. Good communications from Antonia in advance of our stay too, Thanks!!
Nice house if you’re looking for peace and quiet and excellent views this is the place for you
Very comfortable, cozy and snug cottage; set in some lovely tranquil setting. Very recommended.
A car is essential for this location, the nearest train station being in Hereford, 8 miles away. There is a bus service to Ross and Hereford but it is infrequent. Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff Airports are all about 1 1/2 hour's drive from the property.
Stone Cottage is situated just outside the picturesque village of Hoarwithy, within 10 mins walk from the village pub, The New Harp Inn. Ross on Wye is 5 miles south, a market town with antique shops, pubs and restaurants. Hereford is about 8 miles north with its cathedral, medieval chained library and Mappa Mundi, leisure centre and swimming pool. It too has good shops and restaurants. Hay on Wye is about 30 miles with its jazz and book festivals and antique shops.
The Wye Valley is a walker's paradise with hundreds of footpaths covering spectacular countryside. On the border with Wales, there is much historical interest with Offa's Dyke nearby and the border castles of Goodrich, Skenfrith, White and Grosmont. Tintern Abbey is within easy driving distance as are the Malvern Hills and Black Mountains. Other activities include fishing, canoeing (a great fun activity for all the family) and children's adventure parks in the Forest of Dean. The property does not come with its own fishing on the Wye, but makes ideal accommodation for those fishing the Middle Wye beats. For racing enthusiasts the courses at Hereford, Ludlow, Chepstow and Cheltenham are all within striking distance.
