Portland House, an elegant 18th Century property, is uniquely positioned on the cusp of three counties, in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the picturesque Wye Valley, just 5 minutes walk from the best river in the UK, the wonderful River Wye and all that it offers to canoeists, fishing and wildlife enthusiasts; and 10 minutes drive away from the iconic Symonds Yat Rock viewpoint and nesting place for peregrine falcons.
Whitchurch is an ideal base to explore rural Herefordshire, the magical Forest of Dean, and magnificent Monmouthshire and the Black Mountains. Very close to the market towns of Monmouth and Ross on Wye. Less than 16 miles away is Hereford City and its cathedral with the famous Mappa Mundi and Magna Carta, and the evocative Cistercian Abbey of Tintern near Chepstow.
The House has plethora of information on what to do and where to go. Just outside the back door is one of many public footpaths to enjoy a wonderful walk from our house to Goodrich Castle. Golfers are spoilt for choice. We are surrounded by quality golf courses, e.g. 10 mins from the Rolls of Monmouth golf course (previous home of Charles Rolls of Rolls Royce fame), and just 25 mins drive to The Celtic Manor, where the 2010 Ryder Cup was held. Outoor pursuits (fun and challenging) can be pre-booked with our associates.
With its range of inclusive accommodation for 20 people Portland House is considered to be one of the best venues for family and group events and people of all ages and types. To accommodate the sporty and 'the active in all weathers' there's The Boot Room with laundry and drying facilities. Portland House can also store bikes. Relax in the very comfortable lounge, read or maybe enjoy a game of chess, and especially cosy in the winter with a log fire. The spacious and pretty dining room, with its beautiful Victorian fireplace and high ceiling, is perfect to enjoy your special meals. External catering can be hired in and you may arrange tables to suite your party. Just ask us how. All bedrooms and suites have been individually styled and all with ensuite facilities. Day Room on the ground floor can be adapted easily into a bedroom. This also has an attached bathroom.
