Set in approx. 16.5 acres, a four / five bedroom country house with stable yard, outbuildings and parkland style gardens, grounds and paddocks in a beautiful location with superb outriding in Wentwood Forest
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.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
