About The Lodge

Large elegant Edwardian Mansion with 12 bedrooms set in beautiful grounds which total around 8 acres. With the tranquil Herefordshire rolling countryside found all around, this impressive property sleeps up to 22 adults (up to 30 guests in a mixed group) and is located just 5 miles from the cathedral city of Hereford and close to the village of Canon Pyon.

The spacious, light, bright and airy accommodation is arranged over 3 floors. Each bedroom has its own en-suite facilities and this house features 3 reception rooms, a large dining room and a fabulous recently installed luxury kitchen with Aga.

Excellent leisure facilities include:

This all combines to make The Lodge the ultimate venue for a short - or long - break with family and friends. Alternatively, the state-of-the-art electronic presentation screen in the dining room, wi-fi internet connection and huge oak table seating up to 24 make it the perfect venue for a corporate/team-building exercise or even a board meeting.

First available for holiday rentals in the summer of 2007, following a 6 month refurbishment project, this impressive country house has now been fully updated to offer stylish, high quality accommodation, whilst retaining charming original features, such as elegant fireplaces, intricate architraves and the oak-panelled dining room. The aim was to combine the best of the historical features with those all-important modern touches, which have been combined to produce a welcoming modern country house. Feedback from our guests has confirmed that we’ve achieved exactly that with more than a touch of the Wow factor added in. The walls throughout the house are painted a warm shade of cream and the soft furnishings and carpets have been chosen in complementary warm yet neutral tones making this a luxurious, calming and tranquil place to stay.  Each of the 3 reception rooms has a Flatscreen TV, 2 have lovely warming open fires and a Sky TV connection, and there are 2 TEAC CD/ipod players and a PS3 console for your entertainment. There is plenty of seating available to accommodate 30 guests in total across the 3 reception rooms but if you want some time alone, there are plenty of quiet seating areas to be found in the house and garden.

The fabulous recently installed bespoke kitchen features oak units with granite worktops and a beautiful travertine marble floor. Fully equipped to cater for large parties, the facilities include a 4-door Aga, 90cm range cooker, 3 Miele fridges, 1 Miele freezer with ice-maker, 2 Neff dishwashers, 2 sinks, a microwave and a toaster. There are also ample wine & champagne glasses, tumblers, plates, bowls, cutlery, pots, pans, serving dishes, tea cups, saucers, pot, little coffee cups and saucers and a choice of cookery books. If you prefer not to cook, then why not try the services of one of our recommended caterers? Or alternatively why not make a reservation at the award-winning Wellington Inn, just 2 miles away or at the Nags Head in Canon Pyon? If you require transport, it may be possible to arrange a mini-bus to pick you up and return you back at the end of your night out.  

Accessed via the French doors, just off the kitchen is the old courtyard area which was originally where horses and carriages used to be hosed down. This area has been lovingly transformed by our gardener, Anna, into a calm and peaceful Zen garden which is complete with water feature, stepping stones and a bridge, representing our journey through life. Complete with decked area with table and chairs, this is a tranquil spot for some quiet contemplation and a lovely place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening.

Each of the en-suite bathrooms feature luxurious touches such as stylish baths, power showers and natural stone or glass wall and floor tiles, Damana toiletries, thick towels, chrome fittings and a heated towel rail. Most rooms have a choice of bath or shower, and one ground floor room features a Jacuzzi bath, for a truly relaxing soak. It usually takes a maximum of 20 seconds to get hot water to any room in the house and the 3 mega-flow systems that we have installed mean that we are super-confident that guests can all start the day with a relaxing, hot shower.

The 12 bedrooms are elegantly and individually decorated, and furnished with quality bedlinens. Two of the bedrooms contain double beds, one has a super-king, one an Eastern King (which measures 6'6" x 6'9" and requires specially made extra large bedlinen and pillows!) and the remaining 8 are all standard kings. Three bedrooms are located on the ground floor and are wheelchair accessible. Several bedrooms contain a sofabed, and a number of z-beds and cots can be supplied, for use by children only.

The Lodge can accommodate 22 adults, and up to a total of 30 guests by arrangement. Additional charges apply for the use of z-beds, cots and sofabeds. Beds will all be prepared for your stay and for those guests staying a week or longer, linens are changed weekly. Should you require more frequent changes of bedlinen and towels an additional charge will apply. Please discuss your mobility and bedding requirements with Glyn Hawkins, our Property Manager.

The large oak-panelled dining room boasts an enormous table measuring 3.2 metres square, which can easily seat up 24 guests on comfortable leather chairs - but could squeeze to 28 at a push.  The oak panels are from the original Lodge (known as the West Lodge), the remains of which you can see at the rear of the house.

One of the very special features at the Lodge is the bar, which is found just outside the dining room, tucked away under the main staircase. Complete with a wine and beer fridge, a TEAC CD/ipod player, glasses and a couple of comfy leather tub chairs, this is a lovely spot to socialise and relax!

The recently installed gym features a wall-mounted TV, running, rowing, cycling and cross-training machines, a power plate, multi-gym and a selection of free weights. Next door there is a shower and a 12-seater sauna.

Outside are the beautiful grounds, complete with all-weather tennis court in the old walled garden, for which a number of racquets are supplied. Right next to the tennis court is the games barn, with table tennis, football and pool tables as well as a dart board so there are ample facilities to keep you entertained.

Surrounding the house are our lovely orchards which are harvested by Bulmers of Hereford in November. At the bottom of the garden, you will find the swimming pool, sited in an area which is something of a sun trap. This area is complete with sun loungers and parasols for relaxing and soaking up the sun. There is also a new wooden pool room. The terraced area at the top of the garden features 2 barbeques and 2 large teak tables plus a number of smaller tables, which together provide seating for over 30 people. A large area of lawn can accommodate a marquee.

In the basement there is a laundry with 2 industrial-sized washing machines, tumble driers, an iron and ironing board. To make your stay even more special why not ask us for information on local caterers, maid services, a children's entertainer, or murder-mystery nights.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements. Weekend breaks are available at around £3,000. 25% deposit with balance payable 6 weeks before holiday begins.
