A small lane passes the old Castle House and Castle Cottage leading up to Grosmont Castle - the cottage sits beside the main house and has its own entrance and is totally self-contained. The pretty village of Grosmont on the borders of The Golden Valley and The Black Mountains still retains its village shop and The Angel a friendly village pub serving good food; the village also still retains its market place, market hall and the large parish church dating from the 12th century. Part of the church was built by Edmund for his mother, Queen Eleanor, the wife of Henry III. Within its wall are the much eroded remains of an effigy of a twelfth century knight. Grosmont Castle dates from approximately 1300's and is a remarkably well preserved Marcher Castle, along with Skenfrith and White Castle and is a fascinating place to visit.
Sleeps 2, plus cot, a studio bedroom. The downstairs newly fitted kitchen has an electric cooker, hob, microwave, fridge etc, ample work surfaces and storage space and a separate dining room has a dining table and chairs.
Upstairs to a spacious sitting room with a comfortable sofa bed and chairs, a TV with DVD, a lovely open fire and a double bed - very cosy to be able to lie in bed and watch the fire. From this studio/sitting room there are lovely views out over the garden to the castle beyond. The bathroom has a bath with a shower over, handbasin and a separate toilet.
