    “Just the best”
    I suppose returning to The Studio for our 7th visit says it all about this wonderful place. The very high quality of the accommodations, their cleanliness and location all combine to make The Studio just the best for two travelers in search of peace and quiet. And when we have enough of the country lanes just outside the door there are two pubs just around the corner! Beth and Martin could not be better hosts, with the knack for being there when you need them and invisible when you don't. Can't ...

The property

A charming first floor, open plan apartment, ideally located in a wing of the owner's Swedish home, in the pretty village of Woolhope, enclosed by unspoilt countryside.

Beautifully furnished throughout, this Herefordshire cottage offers the perfect place for a romantic break, where guests can take in the country air and leave behind any stresses of daily life.

With lovely views over a 17-acre meadow, which has never in its history been ploughed, towards the surrounding woodland, this Herefordshire cottage offers airy open plan living accommodation including a very comfortable double bed, sitting area and dining area all in a light and bright setting, along with a large shower room and a separate, well-equipped kitchen.

This beautiful Herefordshire cottage boasts both a balcony and a patio, perfect for enjoying a warm evening sitting outside, relaxing with a good book and ideal for taking in the peaceful atmosphere and lovely views that this location offers in abundance.

In summer, the meadow is teeming with wildflowers, whilst autumn and winter bring sheep and lambs in springtime.

The whole area surrounding this Woolhope cottage is criss-crossed with footpaths, and it boasts several SSSIs and ancient woodland animated with rare butterflies and moths.

The intimate village of Woolhope provides guests with a starting point for many lovely walks, with the Three Choirs Way running through the centre, as well as cycle routes and two traditional village pubs both serving excellent food and real ale.

The village of Fownhope is close by with traditional shops, leisure centre and village pubs.

A little further afield, enjoy a day out in Hereford, with its wonderful cathedral, the riverside towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth and the ancient town of Ledbury, with its unique shops, restaurants and stunning market house.

On the County boundary, half an hour by car are the Malvern Hills, the Elgar Trail, and all that Malvern offers with spring and autumn garden festivals.

A very special Herefordshire holiday cottage in a beautiful part of the country.

About the location


Fownhope 2.7 miles; Ledbury 7 miles; Hereford 7 miles; Ross-on-Wye 7 miles.

Just 7 miles from Hereford, the picturesque village of Woolhope lies in unspoilt countryside and boasts two traditional village pubs, both serving excellent local food and real ale. Woolhope is close to the Wye Valley Walk, a 136-mile trail following the border between England and Wales, as well as The Hereforshire Trail and Three Choirs Way. Close by, Haugh Woods offer 850 acres of ancient forest boasting many rare species of moth and butterfly and numerous lovely walks through an unspoilt area of Herefordshire. Local produce can be acquired in the popular monthly farmers’ markets in Woolhope and nearby Fownhope, which boasts an Iron Age Hill Fort and stunning views from Capler Hill. Nearby Hereford, with its wonderful 11th century cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi is worth a visit, as are the riverside towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth with their timbered buildings, striking 17th century market halls and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. A walk on Marcle Ridge looks across the valley to the ancient town of Ledbury which is just a short drive away with its many listed, timber-framed buildings, the most outstanding being the 17th century Market House in the town centre. The town has bustled with street markets since the 12th century and is home to antique and flea markets, craft fairs, as well as gardens, book and poetry festivals. Enjoy the beautiful countryside by taking a stroll along the banks of the River Wye, a hot air balloon ride or a canoe down the river. The charming 'town of books' Hay-on-Wye, the magnificent Black Mountains, unspoilt Brecon Beacons National Park, magnificent Royal Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills, all make a great day out.
