Full of character, on the edge of the woods at the end of a private lane this beautiful three storey Victorian house nestles in the heart of the Wye Valley with stunning views over the wonderful River Wye and up to famous Yat Rock. The house easily accommodates 22 people and is perfect for family get-togethers, special occasions, celebrations, reunions and fun, activity-based holidays – ideal for group self catering holidays in the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean.
It combines genuine peace and quiet (apart from the sound of the river) and absolutely no traffic, with loads to do nearby and 3 excellent pub/restaurants within walking distance (plus one that’s accessed by river ferry….). It’s comfortable, totally safe for children and pets, has open fires, stunning views, a hot tub and our guests return time and again for a group self catering holiday in the Wye Valley or Forest of Dean. Popular dates can be booked more than a year ahead.
Hollytree House is a quirky Victorian Villa with accommodation arranged over three floors. The house is fully equipped to enable up to 22 people to eat, sleep, and dine in comfort. Two sitting rooms, both with fires and window seats and an adjacent snug means there’s room for separation when needed though everyone can eat together at one table in a wonderfully light room looking out to the terrace through the huge patio doors.
Hollytree has everything you need to enjoy a comfortable relaxing break. The kitchen is fully equipped with a range style LPG gas cooker, large fridge and chest freezer, dishwasher, microwave oven, and all necessary crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment (even a scales and cook book!). The dining room comfortably accommodates up to 20 people and has sliding doors that lead out onto the patio.
Each bedroom is unique, with most having large sunny windows and views out over the River Wye Rapids, six of which are en-suite (bath or shower). There is also a family sized bathroom, shower-room and downstairs cloakroom. There are five double bedrooms, one twin room and two family rooms (twin beds and one set of children’s bunk beds). There is also a sofa bed on the 2nd floor landing and two travel cots are available if required.
On site there’s a lawn out front overlooking the river, a large side patio with two barbecues, ample dining furniture for outdoor celebrations on the wooden decking and of course the covered hot tub sat high up in the garden on its own deck. On the patio there is a charcoal fired BBQ and there is plenty of seating on the patio and wooden decking to take full advantage of the glorious views.
There are two sitting rooms, each with an open fire and large bay window overlooking the River Wye. There is also a snug, perfect for getting stuck into a good book. Our rates include heating, electricity, water, bed linen, bath and hand towels, (but not hot tub towels – please bring your own) and cleaning upon check out. Our change-over days are Friday and Monday with check-in time from 4.00pm and check out time 10.00am unless by prior arrangement. Where possible we do our best to be flexible but it may not be possible on days when we have guests both checking in and checking out. Please remember that Hollytree is a non – smoking site

Just returned from a fabulous weeks stay with friends (22 of us). This is our 30th year of spending New Year together and Orchard House is the best property in all that time. It has been recently refurbished and is to an extremely high standard throughout. The rooms are very spacious and most are ensuite. The large and well equipped kitchen and the light and airy dining area were perfect for our group. The games room is ideal for younger (and older!) members of the group. The property is dog friendly and as it is set in very extensive grounds there is plenty of space to exercise. Also a fenced garden with patio and garden furniture. The owners, David and Jo, were very welcoming and gave us a guided walk of the estate which helped us orientate ourselves for the week. For anyone interested in horses, this place is a dream as David and Jo breed Spanish horses. There's so much to do in the area, particularly if you enjoy walking, but also lots of cultural/history visits to make. Highly recommende

I am writing this letter to say how much we enjoyed our 4 day stay at Orchard house as we were unable to complete the visitors book as none of us remember to pack a pen and thought that maybe were you could staple in for u.
We found all the bedrooms had fantastic views and was laid out perfectly and spotlessly clean with extremely comfortable beds. Kitchen was well quipped and a welcome pack was un packed and waiting for our arrival.
The living room so spacious and accommodated 20 of us in comfort, The games room kept the younger ones occupied. The younger ones went off exploring the countryside during the day leaving us older ones home relaxing.
We must also thank you for showing them around the stables introducing the little one to the horses and unicorn which Ariana is still talking about today . Raglan castle was a good attraction and also a trip to an adventure travel proved a great success.
The dark skies were also a bonus as it was clear on most evenings making it great for the telescopes. This is our 50th wedding adversary and I don’t think we could’ve picked a better location to celebrate with close family on this milestone in our lives.
A big thank you to Mr Mrs Jarrett for helping us make this day possible as everyone of us had such an amazing time in such a idyllic location.
By Bolton Family on 09-Oct-2018

We stayed here for a week for my mum's 50th and it was absolutely amazing! We had a big age range and it suited everyone, my 1 year old loved it! Extremely clean house and the facilities available were more than you could want! Pool table, pin ping, hot tub and DVDs etc if you want a quiet evening, among many more. All of our party would stay here again! It's a remote location but close to loads of different towns so great variety! Loved it!
