The picturesque hamlet of Ridgeway Cross lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with far reaching views to the Malvern Hills and has the added benefit of an award winning pub just a short drive away. The Malvern Hills, a 9 mile range of ancient rock, offers visitors 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways, natural springs and amazing views in all directions. The town of Malvern, which dates back to the Bronze Age, holds regular antique fairs and auctions, farmers’ markets, WI country markets and the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. Close by is the riverside town of Ludlow, famous for its many black and white timbered buildings including Ledbury Park which is believed to be one of the finest in England, a 17th century Market House and The Painted Room, home to 16th century frescoes. Guests can also enjoy the numerous food, drink and arts festivals held in and around the town as well as Eastnor Castle, a mock 19th century castle, home to The Big Chill Music Festival. The historic city of Hereford with its 11th century cathedral, world famous Mappi Mundi and Chained Library is well worth a visit as well as the local vineyards, the picturesque Elgar Route, numerous Black and White villages and the many outdoor activities available in the Forest of Dean and beautiful Wye Valley. A superb holiday destination at any time of year.

Situated just 4 miles west of the magnificent Malvern Hills, these three linked Herefordshire holiday cottages are located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amidst ten acres of unspoilt countryside, with far-reaching views to the Malvern Hills beyond.

Previous visitors' comments about Haywain:
The setting was lovely - it was great to wake up to the ducks & geese in the duckpond each morning.
The cottage itself was perfect, with everything provided you could possibly want, plenty of it, and stored in a logical way. I loved the quirkiness of the upside-down layout. As it was February and a cottage, I was also impressed at how warm it always was. It was nice to come back to after being outside in the cold. The literature provided in the information room about the area was very thoughtful, as were the suggested walks in the welcome folder.

The cottage was lovely and warm throughout, very characterful. The owners were brilliant hosts, nothing was any trouble, they even fixed up a hose to wash the dogs down!
Mr Davies, Penmaenmawr, December 2012
The cottage was warm, cosy and comfortable, and was centrally positioned for the places we wished to visit. We would certainly choose to stay there again.
