Featured in Sawday's "Go Slow England and Wales ", the Granary is the perfect place to experience the Good Life on our peaceful rural smallholding in North West Herefordshire where we keep rare breed animals. The Granary is one of two luxurious cottages in the quiet courtyard of our Grade 2 listed 15th century black and white farmhouse, recently converted from farm buildings and available for full week, weekend or mid week breaks.
The cottages are warm and spacious and retain many lovely original features, including original doors and exposed beam whilst providing 21st century facilities. The Granary has full central heating, double glazing and a toasty warm log burner in the sitting room. It is well located for both Hay on Wye, internationally famous for its annual literary festival and second-hand bookshops (8 miles) and Ludlow, a mecca for antique lovers and foodies alike (15 miles). It is set in excellent walking country with easy access to the Brecon Beacons, Wye Valley, Offa's Dyke, and the black & white villages of Herefordshire. The area is also excellent for fishing. Canoeing on the river Wye is also available locally with several companies offering hire by the hour, half or full days.

The Granary is furnished to a very high standard, with a wonderful wood burning stove in the sitting room, a large fully fitted kitchen with direct access to the garden and good quality comfortable furnishings, fittings and bed linen. We aim to provide guests with the kind of experience that we look for ourselves in self catering holiday accommodation: luxury, comfort, warmth, attention to detail, good reading material, detailed information about the local Herefordshire area and recommendations about pubs and restaurants (we have a great village with an excellent reputation for food and drink just overa mile from the cottages).
Children are always welcome and can join us to feed the animals and learn about the different breeds. A welcome breakfast pack of local Herefordshire produce is provided for guests on arrival. We are 4 star rated by the Tourist Board.
Special features include: Log burning stoves with free supply of logs on arrival (a small fee is charged for subsequent baskets) a Laundry and drying room, together with iron and ironing board, Games, TV, DVD, Wi-Fi, radio and stereo and ipod docking and lots of local information. Barbeque grills are also available for some alfresco dining on warm summer evenings. We are keen walkers and cyclists, and both cottages are equipped with local Herefordshire maps and books of walks. Seating areas and tables are available in the beautiful cottage gardens.
