Three 17C converted barns set in the quiet unspoilt Herefordshire countryside, ideal for relaxing with family and friends. Enjoy the tranquil setting with wonderful views and spectacular sunsets.
On arrival the owners, who live on site, will show you around the cottages, there will be a welcome basket with a selection of basics, so just sit down and enjoy the views with a cup or glass of your favourite. Dine inside in Bramble’s or alfresco on one of the patios.
All three cottages incorporate ancient oak beams and hardwood floors with modern facilities ensuring cosy comfort. The kitchens are fitted with quality facilities and all utensils are supplied. Children are welcome, we can supply a cot and folding bed on request, these are free of charge.
Dogs are greeted with their own welcome basket and able to roam not just in the cottages and patios, but also in the 12 acres of ancient fields.
All bedrooms are en suite with underfloor heating and a mechanical heat recovery system, ensuring a constant supply of fresh air. The wet rooms and kitchens have Altro non-slip floors with underfloor heating. Each cottage has its own private patio; however Brambles has stair gates with an enclosed child safe patio also ideal for dogs.
The three cottages are linked internally, allowing each to be private yet with the facility to join up for larger groups. The ground floor of Bramble’s is on the same level as Valley View Cottage, ideal for the less mobile and wheelchairs accessible. Valley View has two patios, both on the same level and wheelchair accessible.
There are over 12 acres of meadow enclosed by ancient hedges and trees. Watch frogs in the old pond, give your dog a chance to chase rabbits, watch the birds soar over the valley. Forget work and relax.
