Cherry Orchard is a lovely country property which has been in the same family for nearly forty years. In the agent’s opinion offering well presented and characterful accommodation. The original part of the house is believed to date from the 17th century with later Georgian additions to the front including a superb dining room and sitting  room. The vendors have more recently added a very nice living room to the front to make the most of the superb outlook. This evolution of the house blends the character of the original cottage and the spacious main rooms that were later added. The property has been utilised over the years for residential and equestrian use and keeping dogs and donkeys. There is a good stable yard, other outbuildings including a multipurpose barn, storage barn, lean to, garaging and adjoining studio / office (scope annexe conversion stpc).

There are spectacular views which change with the seasons. There is superb outriding in nearby Wentwood Forest.

Earlswoood is a small rural hamlet between Chepstow and Usk. Chepstow is famous for its race course and Piercefield Park which hosts the annual Chepstow Horse Trials. Nearby David Broome’s Event Centre holds a variety of events during the year including dressage and show jumping.
