Inglewood House is situated in Redbrook in the glorious Wye Valley on the border of England and Wales and is right on Offas Dyke. The river Wye is directly across the road and the Royal Forest of Dean rises from the back of the garden.
An historic house, Inglewood is old and quirky with a wealth of interesting features. We have open fires in the bedrooms, a circular staircase, portcullis gates and a non opening doorway halfway up the staircase. Two bedrooms have Hessian or leather panelled walls for hanging wallpaper.
The main part of the house dates 1738 with the oldest part being much older possibly prior to 1650. Unfortunately the design and age of the house renders it unsuitable for wheelchair access because of the number and style of steps and stairs.
Inglewood House offers three spacious bedrooms two of which have their own ensuite bathrooms and the third has its own private bathroom. Bed linen is white Egyptian cotton and bathrobes are provided in all rooms. There are electric blankets on all beds and hot water bottles on request. Bath towels are soft white and fluffy. Toiletries are of luxury hotel grade. All rooms have a flat screen television with remote controls and dvd players with a selection of films. An Ipod player/charger is available in all rooms. There is free access to wifi throughout the house. Please be aware that it can be difficult to pick up a mobile telephone signal although we do have an EE booster. Tea and coffee making facilities are available with home made cakes time permitting.
There is guest seating area in the entrance hall and on the first floor.
Breakfasts are served in the dining room from 8.30 to 10.00 am where the wood burner will be lit on cooler mornings. From September to May breakfasts are cooked on the aga providing the dry cooked aga free range eggs sourced from a local small holding.
A variety of cereals, fresh fruits, compote, breakfast breads, home made muffins, croissants will be on offer in addition to traditional cooked breakfasts cooked to order. Whenever possible ingredients will be locally sourced and ethically produced.
