Splendid Georgian country house in Herefordshire

Pencraig Court  is a perfectly formed Georgian property with commanding views to the east over the River Wye. The house is presently being used as a family-owned private hotel but has considerable scope for conversion back to a private residence.

The property dates back to the 1780s when it was built in the traditional Georgian style (later extensions were added in subsequent decades). It is a very handsome Grade II listed three bay building with elegant interiors – inside features include elegant coving, sprung floors, dado rails and fascinating marble fireplaces.

Panelled doors lead off the reception hall to the main reception rooms which consist of dining room, drawing room and sitting room; the kitchens are currently set up for hotel use. Upstairs seven principal bedrooms are on the first floor and there are three/four en suite bedrooms on the second floor.

Adjoining the main house to the side is a very useful three bedroom cottage.

Outside the gardens lie principally to the east and are comprised of lawns and banks running down to a heavily wooded backdrop above the River Wye. There are some fine topiaried hedges, stone steps and an array of shrubs and plants including some bamboo. An area of woodland leads round to the north whilst the terrace lies to the rear alongside the formal lawn which is suitable for both croquet and helicopter landing.

Further on is an orchard and a stable block with two loose boxes and a tack room, a kitchen garden and a small greenhouse. The grounds come to over 3.5 acres.

Pencraig Court is situated in the small hamlet of Pencraig above the River Wye between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth on the Welsh borders. Nearby Goodrich has a post office, shops and services and trains to London go from Hereford which is sixteen miles.

The guide price is £875,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01432 273 087 or visit
