Cedars House

Jan and Jonathan Knibbs have owned Cedars House for over 20 years and look forward to welcoming you to this historic property.

Although we have a vintage twist, Cedars House offers some of the modern facilities you need and expect whilst on your holiday. The house offers free WiFi, so you can remain in touch throughout your viist. We also have TV with Freeview, DVD and Wii games console.

Cedars House is a lovely eight bedroom Georgian house, part of an old asylum, set in the beautiful Wye Valley, minutes from the renowned Symonds Yat. Located on the Herefordshire side of the border between England and Wales, the towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth are both within easy reach.

The house is ideal for hen parties with a relaxed or vintage theme. The many successful hen weekends that have taken place in Cedars House have included murder mystery weekends and vintage tea parties.

The interior has been lovingly restored by award-winning textile and fashion designer Jan Knibbs and her husband, Jonathan. It is brimming with vintage finds from her extensive collection in a romantic, shabby chic style, making it perfect for a vintage hen party or all female gathering for any special occasion. Alternatively, it would be perfect for a family get together.

Altogether, Cedars House offers a pretty, welcoming hall, an impressive drawing room with plenty of comfortable seating, a dining room where up to 20 guests can all eat together, a farmhouse style kitchen with a small dining table and a comfortable TV lounge.

Upstairs there are eight pretty bedrooms, one offering a king-size bed and a single day bed with a further pull out single, three with double beds, two with matching vintage single beds, one with singles which can be converted to a king-size and one with a single and a fold-up bed. There are two bathrooms (one of which is en-suite) and three en-suite shower rooms. 

It is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, on the edge of the village of Whitchurch, within easy walking distance of the local shop, various pubs, tourist attractions and stunning countryside.

Whitchurch is located on the A40 between Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye and is easily accessible from the motorway network, making Cedars House the perfect meet up point for all your guests.

There are many activities and historical sites with 30 minutes of Cedars House. Just ten minutes drive away from the house you will find Goodrich Castle, a wonderful ruinous Norman medieval castle.

Due to our location within the village of Whitchurch, Cedars House is not suitable for large, noisy birthday parties.

Vintage Tea Parties

We can offer a sumptuous vintage tea party during your stay, with lace tablecloths and vintage china to set the scene. If you wish, you can dress up in vintage clothes and have a make-over by a professional make-up team.

Hen Parties

We have created a slice of vintage heaven at Cedars House which makes it the perfect venue for a tasteful hen party or girly get together. Various activities can be arranged or you can just take the opportunity to relax with your favourite friends and relatives.
