Set deep in the countryside offering a landscape of rich farmland with views of Skirrid Mountain (Ysgyryd Fawr), this detached farmhouse with spacious accommodation is just perfect for family and friends.

Eight guests are welcome to this delightful home situated on a working farm on the cusp of the border of England and Wales. Get cosy by the fire, explore walking and cycling routes available from the doorstep or hike the Brecon Beacons and mountains. Popular literary town Hay-on-Wye is nearby where you will find an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. The whole group will love canoeing, kayaking or paddle boarding along the River Wye.

This pretty home is brimming with countryside charm with exposed beams, wood panelled walls and flag stone floors. It’s in a quiet, rural location so you can be rest assured that disturbances will be kept to a minimum. After a busy day exploring, hang up your coats and boots in the porch before heading into the comfortable snug. Take a seat and enjoy some relaxation in front of the electric-effect wood burner. A second lounge has space for all eight guests to spend time together, and a separate games room has a good stock of books and beard games. Rustle up a delicious meal in the well-equipped kitchen/diner and use the utility room for cleaning and washing. Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms, each with low beams and exposed stone work. Guests who want some time out will love soaking away in the free-standing claw foot bath in the family bathroom. Outside is a large enclosed garden with gar-reaching views across the Herefordshire countryside. Take a seat and enjoy a morning coffee on the raised terrace while planning the days ahead. There is enough parking for four cars, and secured storage for bikes at the property.

This is a first class property! Really well equipped, comfortable and spacious. The views are wonderful and the garden area is really pretty and the kids loved playing out there. Great wifi coverage throughout the house with a smart tv that kept the kids entertained each evening after wonderful days walking and biking. We will return!
