The nine double-bedroom property at Rudhall Manor sits on ten acres of idyllic scenery with landscaped gardens and three majestic lakes.

Rudhall has been owned by a number of important figures over the years, most notably Admiral Lord Nelson, and was used by the Royal Hospital to house retired British soldiers who fought in the Boer war and the First World War during the Second World War.

Other notable owners include Alexander Baring, later the first Lord Ashburton, ornithologist Sir Peter Scott and Sir John Harvey Jones, the high-profile British businessman and entrepreneur.

Located near Ross-On-Wye, the property has an indoor swimming pool and gym, triple garage, and music room in the outbuildings. It also has a self-contained four-bedroom annexe attached to the main house.

The great hall has a magnificent fireplace, panelled walls, a Venetian window, and a grand oak staircase that reflects the Tudor origins of the property. There are five other reception rooms one of which has oak panelling and a carved oak door.
