The living areas

‚ÄčThe kitchen/dining area is a great place for the whole family to socialise and enjoy each others company. The kitchen is a home from home and is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a large range cooker, a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer. The sitting room is an exceptionally cosy and comfortable room with a wood burner to warm your toes after a day out in the hills! For your entertainment there is a wide screen TV, Freesat, DVD and Bluetooth speaker.

The Good Life

A large private patio wraps around two sides of the cottage and houses two Al Fresco dining areas so you can make the most of the sunshine all day!

Guests are more than welcome to use the huge garden and splash about in the river beyond the cottage patio. *A new private, secure, exclusive use garden is coming early 2023, with a gated woodland path down to the river. Please enquire before booking as to which garden is in use.

We are super doggie friendly - we warmly welcome your four legged family members, any number of them by arrangement, the main stipulation is they are friendly as there are will be dogs in the adjoining garden.

Sleep Soundly

Sleep soundly to the gentle rhythmic sound of the Monnow river trickling by across the garden and under the 'International Dark Sky Reserve'

The River Room

A tastefully furnished room with a deluxe king size bed adorned with luxurious Egyptian cotton bed linen. Also available in the room is a very comfortable slatted single bed settee for additional guests. This room can also house both bed settees making a very comfortable Family Room.

The Hobbit Room

So called due to the quirky shaped door and 'up and over' entrance to the room, this bedroom hosts a choice of twin beds or a super-king size bed. Each made up with beautiful patchwork linen bedspreads, luxurious duvets and Egyptian cotton bed linen. This room also has a very comfortable slatted single bed settee for an additional guest.

*Please note if your dogs are likely to get up onto the beds we ask that you bring your own bedding (duvet cover, pillowcases and bottom sheet) the Herefordshire mud permanently stains and any marks on our bedding will have to be paid for! Please let us know at the time of booking if you are bringing your own bedding to save housekeeping from making up the beds unnecessarily.*

"This recently refurbished cottage is simply stunning. Finished to a very high quality, it provided the perfect base for trips into Hereford and walks into the mountains. A well stocked kitchen along with a BBQ meant that we could enjoy the private courtyard and entertainment with our friends."
