Scatterford is a wonderful manor house with parts dating back to the 15th century, built of stone beneath a stone and slate roof. The property has recently been restored to an exceptional level whilst retaining its charming period features which include stone floors in the hall, chamfered oak beams, leaded light windows, vast stone inglenook fireplaces, a rare locking bar and oak doors. The kitchen and bathrooms, however, are state of the art, as is the central heating.
The accommodation is spread out over three floors above a large cellar with the five principal bedrooms (three en suite) and a family bathroom on the first floor and two further bedrooms and charming attic space on the second floor. The ground floor has a hall, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen, larder and boot room as well as a conservatory. The property also has an adjoining coach house which is reached by a staircase from the second floor, and has two bedrooms.
Outbuildings include a large stone tithe barn and an L-shaped range of barns which until recently housed a forge.

The gardens include a parterre garden with a lawn, and ornate box hedging and a walled, well-stocked organic kitchen garden with 30 raised beds. A Hornbeam walk leads to the rear south-facing lawn with its stone terrace adjacent to the house while the land comprises three principal enclosures and various areas of woodland planted for both aesthetics and firewood.
Scatterford is situated in a glorious position in the undulating Wye Valley just outside the historic village of Newland on the borders of Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire. Monmouth just over five miles away has a good range of local shops and services and Chepstow to the south has an equally good range of amenities and trains to London. Local schooling is also excellent.
