Portland House

A beautifully presented semi-detached Herefordshire holiday cottage in the heart of the thriving village of Whitchurch on the edge of the Royal Forest of Dean. This delightful cottage boasts many original features, such as wooden floors and ornate fireplaces, which combine with very comfortable furnishings to provide an excellent holiday base for a break with family and friends. Set over three floors, the cottage has seven charming bedrooms, including one with a stunning four poster bed, made with wood from the Forest of Dean, and a luxurious en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath. The well-equipped fitted kitchen with AGA is a great size for preparing meals all the group can enjoy in the dining room with its decorative fire, before retiring to the sitting room with its cosy open fire, to relax and unwind after a day exploring this memorable area of the country. The garden boasts a patio with furniture and BBQ, perfect for an evening drink, a lawned area for the children to run off some excess energy, and a summerhouse, great for a little shade on a sunny afternoon. Visit the nearby market town of Ross-on-Wye, spectacular Symonds Yat, historic Monmouth, the Forest of Dean with its numerous activities, and Goodrich Castle.
