18th Century country house with fishing rights on the River Monnow, outbuildings and delightful grounds including gardens, orchard and meadow.

Church House is adjacent to the 12th Century Church in the pretty village of Clodock near the Welsh border. The property owns fishing rights on the nearby River Monnow and is within a short walk of a quiet country pub and the river’s weir. Sitting in mature gardens and with a separate wild flower meadow, a recently planted orchard has been established to bring pleasure for years to come. Church House has a wealth of character with exposed beams and stone walls and enjoys wonderful views of the Black Mountains and nearby countryside. The enclosed entrance porch opens into the dining room with stone fireplace and stairs to the first floor. A door leads through to an inviting sitting room featuring a multi-fuel stove set into an inglenook with superb stone surround. The cottage-style kitchen has a range of fitted base and wall units and is complemented by a cream oil-fired AGA and attractive painted stone wall. The kitchen continues to the breakfast room with a bow window providing mountain views. Overlooking the gardens at the rear of the house is a conservatory which was added around 10 years ago and has underfloor heating. The property has flexible accommodation which could be split into separate living space/annexe. To one side of the house, on the ground floor, is a bathroom and utility room with three further rooms, which are currently used as a large studio, a bedroom and a conservatory. With some adaptions this would be useful for an elderly relative or teenager (subject to the necessary planning consents). On the first floor are three further bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms, all with fine countryside views.

Step Outside

The property is approached though a five-bar wooden gate onto the driveway which leads to a turning and parking area at the rear. A detached double garage with remote controlled roller doors provides further parking and houses the oil tank. The north-east facing mature gardens are well maintained and are laid mainly to lawn with mature trees, shrubs, flower beds and an ornamental pond. Other outbuildings include a stone built pottery shed/hobby room and adjoining coal shed. From the rear of the garden is access to the River Monnow where you can use your own fishing rights, or perhaps simply sit and enjoy the views over the weir, Black Mountains and surrounding countryside. A separate meadow adjoins the gardens and has roadside access. The meadow is laid to pasture and annually has an abundance of wild flowers.


Clodock is a small scattered village which lies on the River Monnow and is nestled into the foothills of the Black Mountains. Within walking distance of Church House is a quiet country pub, The Cornewall Arms. Around 1½ miles away is the larger, historic village of Longtown which has a village hall and village store/post office selling local produce, fresh fruits and vegetables, The Crown Inn and a primary school which falls within the catchment area of the well-regarded Fairfield Secondary School in Peterchurch. Ewyas Harold is around 5½ miles from the property where a wider range of amenities can be found including post office, doctors, dentist, public houses, butchers shop, fish and chip shop, veterinary surgery, places of worship and a primary school. The Brecon Beacons and Golden Valley are on the doorstep and offer activities including walking, cycling and horse riding. Access to Offas Dyke Path and the spectacular Llanthony Valley are within a few miles.
