Cedars House is a lovely 8 bedroom Georgian house, part of an old asylum, set in the beautiful Wye Valley, minutes from the renowned Symonds Yat. Located on the Herefordshire side of the border between England and Wales, the towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth are both within easy reach.
The house is ideal for hen parties with a relaxed or vintage theme. The many successful hen weekends that have taken place in Cedars House have included murder mystery weekends and vintage tea parties.
The interior has been lovingly restored by award-winning textile and fashion designer Jan Knibbs and her husband, Jonathan. It is brimming with vintage finds from her extensive collection in a romantic, shabby chic style, making it perfect for a vintage hen party or all female gathering for any special occasion. Alternatively, it would be perfect for a family get together.
Altogether, Cedars House offers a pretty, welcoming hall, an impressive drawing room with plenty of comfortable seating, a dining room where up to 20 guests can all eat together, a farmhouse style kitchen with a small dining table and a comfortable TV lounge.
Upstairs there are eight pretty bedrooms, one offering a king-size bed and a single day bed with a further pull out single, three with double beds, two with matching vintage single beds, one with singles which can be converted to a king-size and one with a single and a fold-up bed. There are two bathrooms (one of which is en-suite) and three en-suite shower rooms.
It is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, on the edge of the village of Whitchurch, within easy walking distance of the local shop, various pubs, tourist attractions and stunning countryside.
Whitchurch is located on the A40 between Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye and is easily accessible from the motorway network, making Cedars House the perfect meet up point for all your guests.
Due to our location within the village of Whitchurch, Cedars House is not suitable for large, noisy birthday parties.
