An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a c1850's impressive and unique former coach house offering a quadrangle layout with a central cobbled courtyard and approached off a long tree lined track. The property stands in approximately 4.7 acres including a gently sloping paddock, woodland and idyllic gardens with breath-taking views over its own land and the Wye Valley beyond.

Located close to the village of St Briavels, Chepstow and the Severn Bridge are about 6 miles so Bristol and Cardiff are within a comfortable drive. There are a network of public footpaths and byways which offer a wealth of opportunity for those who enjoy walking, cycling or hacking.

The property also has the benefit of a bunk house (renovated in 2016) able to accommodate up to 20 guests, which the Vendors inform us has a 70% - 80% occupancy rate over a year and brings in an income of approximately £70,000 per annum. There is also a derelict stone built cottage with cobbled courtyard and open fronted barn with obvious potential for conversion (subject to consent). The accommodation comprises entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, living room, music/hobby room, cloakroom, inner hall, ground floor bathroom, office/bedroom 5, ground floor bedroom 6, utility/boot room, a further four bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. The bunk house comprises kitchen/diner, ladies & gents wc's/wet rooms and three bunk rooms (two sleeping eight and one sleeping four).
