The Coach House

4

£485.00 to £790 as of 22/05/2023

There’s nowhere quite like rural Herefordshire for relaxing and The Coach House at The Old Rectory is situated in the heart of this beautiful county. Hidden behind electric gates and at the end of a private driveway the property is surrounded by five acres of private grounds most of which are open to guests. You can stroll through the wild flower meadow, watch the ducks on the two large ponds and even enjoy some of the produce from the kitchen garden.

The property itself is a light and spacious first-floor apartment, with open-plan living and french doors that open out onto a balcony for some fabulous views. The owners have included lots of little extra touches, including Egyptian cotton bed linen and wall-mounted televisions in both bedrooms. You could spend your holiday just enjoying the views and the grounds, but you’re also ideally placed to visit nearby lovely market towns. Historic Leominster with its famous black and white buildings is under 5 miles away while Ledbury, Hay-on-Wye and Ludlow come highly recommended as day trip destinations.

  • The Carn

    • 4

    The Carn is nestled on a secluded hill on the idyllic Frith Meadow, with incredible far-reaching views across the valley and hills. The stunning wooden cabin is expertly designed and hand-built by the owners with a big focus on sustainability, using eco-conscious materials like locally sourced wood and wool insulation in its construction. Completely off-grid, the home is powered by solar panels (don’t worry about grey days, there is a backup generator!), and has its own fresh water supply and rainwater tank. With cosy interiors and lots of outdoor living space, it is the perfect haven for rest and relaxation. Stepping into the cabin you can really see how much care and effort has gone into it. From the upcycled furnishings and countless plants to the many well-placed windows providing buckets of natural light and gorgeous country vistas, it really is a magical property. It sleeps up to five in two delightful bedrooms, a master suite with a king-sized bed and an additional room with a double bed and a single bunk over it, ideal for children (a cot is also available on request). When it’s time to eat, guests can make use of the fully equipped kitchen to cook delicious meals, with all the cooking essentials included for your stay. In the colder months, a woodburning stove can be fired up to keep the cabin toasty (firewood and kindling provided), whilst underfloor heating warms cold feet. A real highlight of The Carn is its outdoor living space. The porch is a great place to relax, with outdoor furniture for alfresco dining and a super comfy swing chair to hang around in and spot some of the local wildlife. It’s also where you’ll find the Portuguese bucket shower and sunken bath, the latter ideal for a calming soak under the stars. Down from the porch is an enclosed garden with a fire pit, where guests can sizzle up food on the grill or toast marshmallows as the sun sets. Guests staying at The Carn will receive a welcome pack of locally sourced goodies, including sourdough bread and hand-pressed apple juice. There are other hampers available to order, full of the finest produce. The cabin is surrounded by open countryside, with many fantastic footpaths and trails right on your doorstep. Just make sure to bring wellies and suitable clothes if you fancy exploring. The pretty town of Presteigne - which sits right on the Wales-England border – is a short drive or scenic walk away. Here you’ll find a good selection of independent shops, traditional pubs and excellent restaurants, as well as many popular attractions. And if you fancy a true culinary experience, there is a Michelin starred restaurant at the nearby village of Titley.

  • Kingfisher Cabin

    • 4
    • 2 nights min low season 3 nights high & Weekends

    As you descend into the orchard and find Kingfisher Cabin waiting by the rippling Escley Brook, the trees seem to close around you and shut out the rest of the world. In actual fact, they only shut out the human world, leaving you to enjoy the bustling wildlife of the riverbank and woods all by yourself. As you nap in the hammock, paddle the little rowing boat, sit out on the veranda and even lie in bed, you can watch and listen for everything from otters to owls (and kingfishers of course). There’s even a large charm of goldfinches that make their home in the meadow in summer. The health of the 20 acres of land around you is a testament to the commitment of owners Tessa and Dave. You probably won’t meet them during your secluded stay, but you’ll see their commitment to the environment and their guests everywhere, from the biodiversity of the land to the bore hole-drawn water and a few welcoming touches you’ll discover in the cabin. They’ve also left plenty of information on the area, from their favourite walking routes in the Black Mountains to the simple twenty-minute stroll to the Bridge Inn for lunch or dinner by the riverside. If you’re planning on staying, then it’s a good idea to stock up on your way or at the local shop about a ten-minute drive away, as Kingfisher Cabin is pretty remote. Once you’ve done so though, that remoteness becomes a tranquil blessing, with minimal phone signal and none of the bother of modern life intruding on your dozing, dawdling few days down by the river.

Just up the road you'll find an excellent farm shop full of local produce. There are also plenty of award-winning local pubs in the area. If you wish to explore on foot you can walk from the house down part of the Wye Valley Walk to Brobury Bridge and then onto the Red Lion at Bredwardine. It's a lovely walk and takes about a good hour.
