Hillside is a truly appealing cottage situated on the edge of Tintern village, just moments away from the amenities but set apart in an elevated position, accessed via a private gated driveway.
The cottage itself is brimming with character and geared to life in the country. The current owners use the door to one side of the cottage as the main entrance which opens to a small lobby/boot room with quarry tiled flooring. This opens into the kitchen/breakfast room and also the ground floor cloakroom/shower room.
The Kitchen is well fitted with cottage style, Canadian Pine units which include some glazed and leaded display cabinets. The Raeburn oil-fired cooking range is installed into the old chimney breast (essential on a country cottage wish list). There are also custom built, pan shelving units to each side of the range. In fact all of the features add up to a very cosy and welcoming room. A large serving hatch opens to the Dining Room next door but there is plenty of room for a table and chairs within the kitchen itself. The Dining Room alongside has exposed stone work and beams and offers a more formal space for entertaining guests.
Interconnecting with the Dining Room is the Living Room which has a full height stone inglenook fireplace topped with a wooden beam and fitted with a solid fuel multi-burner stove. The hearth is topped with flagstones and continues around the corner to make a rustic seating area – piled high with cushions it would be a super place to sit close to the fire on a cold winters evening . There are also custom built bookshelves fitted into the recess. The front hallway leads off this room and is now used as a study area with space for a desk and further storage areas discreetly hidden behind a curtained rail.
An archway leads from the Living Room to the Sitting Room. With large French doors to the garden and a window to the front in a small area that the current owners call ‘the bar’, this is a very pleasant room. It is further enhanced by another large inglenook fireplace with raised hearth with wooden beam mantle and fitted with a wood burning stove. To the side are more fitted bookshelves. The original wooden floors, now polished, all add to the character.
Upstairs are four bedrooms: three good doubles and one large single; the master bedroom having rather a smart bank of custom built wardrobes and matching chest of drawers in soft pine. Further storage areas in the gabled eaves are accessed through half-height doors in the two front bedrooms.
The Bathroom is styled appropriately for the cottage with a panelled bath with overhead electric shower unit. Period style fittings and painted half panelled walls are stylish and in keeping. There are large fitted cupboards giving plenty of storage.
The main gardens and grounds are informally planted with trees and shrubs. The lawned areas are terraced and offer views down into the valley and village below. There is a stone terrace which would be a great place for barbeques and taking a little sun.
Behind the house, the grounds lead up to an area of orchard and paddock before opening out on both sides to a woodland area with a stream and footpath running through the middle.
There is parking for three to four vehicles. Planning permission had been granted for a detached garage to the side and rear of the house (nearest to the driveway); however this has now lapsed but could easily be re-applied for. The large stone built store/workshop is situated on the far side of the house, at the end of the garden and would make an excellent home office suite.
NB: There is a public footpath (No. 79) which runs up the drive and on, eventually to Penterry Church, via a couple of cottages further into the woods. However vehicular access for these cottages is from the bottom road and on around the valley. In these parts, footpaths criss-cross the countryside and are rarely abused and well accepted by the residents who live locally.
This is a genuine Country Cottage with Character in a village that has a tremendous amount to offer. The interior of the cottage is delightful and ticks a lot of boxes for character and charm with pretty rooms and working fireplaces. The country style kitchen is what most ladies want in a cottage, particularly with the feature of the Raeburn oil fired cooking range.
The scenery locally is fabulous and the village is beautiful and renowned as a tourist hotspot. This has provided the added benefit of giving the residents amenities of a coffee shop and gift shops on their doorstep. For nature lovers, woodland and riverside walks abound in the area. The extra land and the views all add up to a little paradise of country living and a cottage that really should be viewed.

TINTERN is a particularly scenic village curving around the beautiful River Wye with a backdrop of wooded hillsides. This village is made even more spectacular by the historic riverside Abbey Ruins and the old Abbey buildings including the Abbey Mill. This Mill is now converted into a gift shop and tea rooms. There are a small number of Hotels offering both accommodation and restaurant facilities, as well as several local Inns. There is a doctor’s surgery in the village. With little fishing boats moored on the river banks it is a truly delightful place to be.
CHEPSTOW is an historic, walled, border town on the site of an ancient port. Chepstow Castle below the town has a spectacular setting on the cliffs above the River Wye. The town has a thriving shopping centre with all amenities. On the outskirts of the town is the Racecourse which has Conference Centre facilities. The design of the river bridge spanning the Wye has been credited to Rennie but was in fact designed by Rastrick of Bridgenorth. Both the rivers Wye and the Severn meet near Chepstow and two unique bridges span the wide expanse of water at the Severn estuary - a massive benefit for benefit for motorists using the M48 and M4 who otherwise would need to drive to Gloucester to cross.
MONMOUTH itself is a busy, thriving town with excellent shopping facilities including four supermarkets (M&S, Waitrose and Co-Op in the centre plus Lidl on the outskirts). There is a delightful period cinema. The excellent Leisure Centre has swimming pools, gymnasium, evening classes etc. There is a wide range of eating and drinking venues from interesting coffee shops to French cuisine. In the summer a week long free Music Festival is held each year, plus a Carnival.
MOTORWAYS The M4/M50/M5 are all reasonably close giving good access to major cities i.e. Birmingham, Bristol, Newport, Cardiff, Bath, Cheltenham, Gloucester and Hereford all within approx 1.5 hours drive away.
RAIL NETWORKS Available at Chepstow, Hereford, Abergavenny or Newport.
