You and your loved ones can enjoy a relaxing break in the idyllic Herefordshire countryside at the Cider Mill. This traditional cottage combines modern amenities with rustic touches, such as the exposed stone walls and cathedral ceiling to create a break that is as comfy as it is charming. This home comfortably sleeps up to six guests, ideal for three couples or a family, and offers large social spaces and a pretty planted enclosed garden where you can chat in the sunshine and dine alfresco when the weather’s warm. Inside, the main social hub of the home is the open plan living area, which is home to the modern kitchen, large dining table and the comfy lounge. This room offers you space to gather together and hang out whilst the designated chef prepares dinner and in summer you can swing open the French doors to the suntrap south facing terrace. The kitchen itself is sleek and stylish and is nicely equipped with an electric hob and oven as well as a fridge-freezer and a dishwasher. There's also ample surface space to make meal prep a breeze. Once dinner’s ready you can take it outside and eat on the patio in the fresh country air, or sit inside at the pretty Indian dining table and enjoy meals that stretch long into the night. After dinner, gather around the faux woodburner in the cosy lounge and enjoy a movie night or box-set marathon on the smart TV. Or, switch the TV off and grab a bottle of wine and enjoy each other’s company in style on the super-comfy sofas. Heading out through the French doors, the garden is pretty and well planted, with a south-facing paved terrace complete with garden furniture and a Weber style BBQ. This is an ideal spot to socialise in the summer or get to work grilling some local produce with a nice cold drink in your hand. If you're feeling particularly energetic, challenge each other to a game of badminton on the lawn. When bedtime beckons, the three bedrooms all offer super-king size beds with 400 thread count Egyptian linen, guaranteeing a luxurious night’s sleep. The three bedrooms also offer lovely views, either down the beautiful Wye Valley or out over the garden. All three bedrooms also have an ensuite shower room complete with a WC for added privacy. All of the beds are zip and link and can be changed by arrangement, meaning the Cider Mill can easily accommodate different groups types. Guests staying at the Cider Mill will be perfectly situated in the heart of Herefordshire, with easy access to the outstanding Wye Valley. The local area offers a perfect mix of hill and river walking, or you could take a stroll through the beautiful cider orchards, which are particularly stunning during blossom time. The more active of you can also enjoy some canoeing or fishing out on the picturesque River Wye, or explore the spectacular Brecon Beacons on foot or by bike. You're also in a great spot from which to enjoy other nearby walks amongst the orchards and hedgerows of rural Herefordshire, whilst enjoying far-reaching views from the Malverns to the Black Mountains. You may also want to cross the river and explore the superb Moccas Park National Nature Reserve. The markets towns of Hereford, Hay on Wye and Presteigne are all within a 20-minute drive and offer fantastic independent shopping, farmers' markets and good places to eat. 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.

  • Pumla Yurt

    • 4
    • 2 nights min stay

    Nights at Pumla involve homemade pizzas, a roaring fire, watching the hills change colour as the sun sets and soaking in the outdoor bath until the stars come out. This beautiful cabin/yurt hybrid is right on the edge of a dark sky reserve, so if the skies are clear you'll spot many a constellation. By day, you can walk to the nearby Cat's Back ridge and to the peaks of Bannau Brycheiniog National Park right from your doorstep.When is a yurt not a yurt? When it’s also a cabin. Between the Brecon Beacons and the Wye Valley AONB, and less than two miles from the Welsh border, this hybrid building sets new standards for its purebred canvas brethren. Owners Malik and Emily used their expertise not only as artists, but as travellers and all-round nomads to create Pumla with every detail thought out. Frustrated by the lack of views in conventional yurts, they designed this space to have huge picture windows that stretch the entire front of the building. Perched on the edge of a dark sky reserve amidst six acres of land, darkness offers the twinkle and glisten of the one or two houses dotted in the distance, and clear night skies above. Pumla means ‘to relax’ in isiXhosa, and you’ll find yourself doing just that. Peek through the binoculars, peruse the books, and enjoy the foraging card pack provided inside. Why not hike straight up the hill to enjoy the marvels of the Cat's Back and the Brecon Beacons, then sit amidst twinkling fairy lights in the huge snazzy tin tub, a nod to the agricultural surrounds as they are often found housing animal feed. Washing in the open with aching muscles, what a glorious sense of satisfaction and freedom. Flip a coin to see who’ll jump out and start lunch or dinner, choosing between the wood burner, fully equipped kitchen or some primeval cooking with the tripod and BBQ grill on the firepit. Dine on local regeneratively farmed meat and bask in the emerging wildflower meadow, part of Emily and Malik's rewilding efforts. The site is incredibly secluded, and yet, still has access to so much in the local area. Nearby is Neil Powell Butchers, or Hopes of Longtown village shop – just a 10 minute drive to the South. To rustle up an appetite, the site sits below the Cats Back, a stunning mountain ridge that leads you up to Offa’s Dyke and The Brecon Beacons so you can enjoy a short stomp or lengthy expedition right from your door.

  • 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.

  • Drovers Bough

    • 4
    • 2 nights min stay

    Perched deep in the rolling Black Mountains, close to the English/Welsh border, Drovers Brough is truly remote, accessed via an old drovers' path through the trees. Offering peaceful and beautifully designed accommodation for individual travellers or couples, the award winning Drovers Brough is the ultimate self-catering hideaway for people who want to escape the bustle of urban life while retaining underfloor heating, a full kitchen, and architect-designed style. The house itself is pleasingly compact, and finished with timber externally. A large wooden balcony contains a dining table, and boasts beautiful views of the valley, creating a spot where most guests choose to drink their coffee in the morning and plan their day. This area is accessed through folding doors from the main living space, which comprises a kitchen area, dining space and living room, all under a high vaulted ceiling, in a room which extends the full length of the building. The bedroom is accessed via an open staircase. The aesthetic throughout the house is pared back and minimalist, emphasising the views, and creating a homely and harmonious space. The bedroom is finished with plaster, and elsewhere you'll find that walls and surfaces are either whitewashed or timber finished. Despite the simple and subtle design, the house is well equipped with everything you need for a a lengthy break away, with underfloor heating, well designed lighting from solar panels, a wood-burning stove, lashings of high pressure hot water in the fitted bathroom and a kitchen with a fridge-freezer and induction hob. For chilly or rainy nights, there is a television mounted opposite the sofa, while warm summer nights are typically spent down by the firepit, which comes with a cooking grill suspended over it. The house is a mile away from public roads, a haven of birdsong and untroubled wilderness, but a fantastic pub called The Bridge Inn is just five miles away, a good hike. Alternatively, head to The Carpenters Arms in Walterstone, definitely driving distance but worth it for the excellent food. For a real treat, book a table at the Michelin starred Walnut Tree. Outdoors enthusiasts should also try canoeing the Wye, or heading to the Monnow for wild swimming. Closer to home, the neighbouring farm has the only horse-powered cider mill in the UK, and offers tours if you book in advance, as well as sales of their cider and brandy. While the area offers a range of activities, many guests choose to spend the bulk of their time at the house and land. Either reclining in the hammock with a book, grilling some locally raised steak over the fire, or sitting with a glass of cider by the wood-burning stove, waiting for dinner.
