Enjoy relaxing under the stars in your own hot tub, surrounded by tranquil Herefordshire pastures and trees. A beautifully renovated barn set within the owner’s smallholding is simply perfect for couples.
Make a truly special escape to this gorgeous barn retreat for two, nestled on a smallholding in glorious countryside close to the border between Wales and England. Sleeping just two guests, but also welcoming a canine companion, the exquisite, one-bedroom abode is near Yarpole, 7 miles from Leominster. It is situated on the fringes of the National Trust’s Croft Castle Estate and Parkland and comes with a hot tub and outside seating area overlooking a field.
Head inside the barn, which is close to the owner’s home but enjoys its privacy, to find original features, such as exposed timbers, have been worked into its creative design. Unpack any fresh provisions in the kitchen/diner, whip up a delicious dinner for two, to enjoy inside or out, and pour yourselves a glass of wine. Your inviting bedroom, which has a king-size bed, and a shower room are also downstairs. Climb the wooden stairs to discover the delightful lounge up on the first floor. This has a vaulted ceiling and views out across the countryside. Snuggle up in here in front of the TV or with your holiday novel. Have morning coffee out in the fresh air on warm days and relax outside with a cold drink or in the bubbling hot tub as the sun sets and the stars start to appear.
Find an abundance of footpaths and cycling routes, including Mortimer’s Trail, which passes next to the cottage, in the area. Explore the gardens and grounds of the National Trust’s Berrington Hall, 7 miles away. Venture into the Shropshire Hills, which begin 10.5 miles away, for long walks. Bannau Brycheiniog, also known as Brecon Beacons National Park, is 23 miles away. Have a day out to Hay-on-Wye, also 23 miles away, to explore the famous book town with its many shops.
