Set on a small country estate with a working farm, overlooking the glorious Herefordshire countryside, this property is bursting with special features and boasts the beauty of the great outdoors on the doorstep.

The traditional village of Madley is within a mile’s walk and offers a well-stocked village store and traditional inn, fish and chip shop, plus a 9-hole golf course, tennis courts and fishing. The area offers great walking with footpaths and quiet lanes to explore. You can picnic alongside the River Wye or tackle Hay Bluff, Black Mountains or Brecon Beacons and it’s ideal for cyclists and canoeing. Take a trip to one of the many local towns for a farmers’ market or to browse the independent shops. Hay-on-Wye is famed for books and the annual international literary festival, while the market towns of Monmouth, Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye, Kington, and Leominster are all within 25 miles and offer castles and historic monuments to explore.

This is a five star accommodation. We were made very welcome with our dogs who had plenty of room in the kitchen diner area and it was perfect for walking as plenty of footpaths close by. The owner could not have been more accommodating.She picks her staff well as the gardeners were also delightful.We would definitely go back.
