The Cottages

Idyllic retreat in Herefordshire’s beautiful unspoilt countryside


The Cottages:

In a quiet and secluded location at the end of a private drive with wonderful views over the Garron river valley and beyond. The three cottages offer luxurious accommodation which can be booked individually or interlinked for larger parties of up to eight people. It is believed the site has been occupied since Saxon times. The property is within 12 acres with mature trees and hedges, which abound with wildlife. Red kites, Buzzards and Owls frequent. Flycatchers and Swallows return most years so wake up to birdsong, not traffic.

The stylishly converted stone barns are beautifully equipped with hardwood floors and underfloor heating. Each bedroom has an en suite shower room. Each cottage contains a fully equipped kitchen, HD Smart TV, Freeview, free WiFi, Blu-ray player and a stereo system with iPod dock.

Children are welcome and free to roam. Highchairs, cots, toys and games are provided free of charge. Dogs are provided with a welcome pack.

Bramble’s Barn and Cider Cottages have fenced and walled patios perfect for dogs. Valley View is set on one floor and is accessible to M3, H2 and V1.

Eating in or out:

Cook in the fully fitted kitchens or enjoy al fresco dining on the private patios. Woods of Whitchurch can cook on site or supply anything from snacks to dinner parties. The local pub is a firm favourite and is less than a mile away.

Places to visit and activities:

The Wye Valley has evidence of human activity for over 12,000 years and became England’s first tourist destination. It started with boat trips in 1745, which are still available. Notable visitors included: Thackeray, Wordsworth, Turner and Nelson. Ideally located for quiet getaways to Symonds Yat and the Wye Valley, the Forrest of Dean, Tintern Abbey and the Marches Castles. Walking, canoeing, cycling, shooting, archery, climbing, forest trails and mountain biking, Go Ape and PGL are readily available. You can join in more relaxing activities with a ride on a steam train, or try your hand at photography or basket-work. Enjoy river trips or watch cheese & cider making. Chepstow and Cheltenham Races are less than an hour away.

In short, there’s something for everyone. Please contact Edward and Marion for more information

Meet the owner

Edward & Marian Drzymalski

Marian and Edward were VSO's (Voluntary Service Overseas) and then teachers, moving to Thatch Close in 1980. Six years were spent in converting the barns, which were completed in 2015 so everyone, including the less able, could share in the idyllic surroundings. Over the years we have extended and improved the garden, planted trees, re-laid hedges and brought the pond back to life. We share our home with Tilly our dog and Zippy the African Grey Parrot.
