The pretty village of Abbey Dore is situated on the River Dore, at the southern end of the beautiful Golden Valley, close to the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains. The village is home to the old established Abbey Dore Court Gardens, open to the public between April and September, Dore Abbey, founded in 1147 by Cistercian monks and restored to its present form in the 18th and 19th Century. Just 12 miles away is the ancient city of Hereford, which dates back to the 7th Century and is home to a magnificent cathedral, the famous 'chained library', Mappa Mundi and a medieval bridge over the winding River Wye. The wonderful market town of Hay-on-Wye, famous for its 30-plus book shops, excellent pubs, restaurants and antique shops, making it one of the most visited tourist attractions in Wales, is only 15 miles from Abbey Dore. Surrounded by pleasant orchards and cornfields, the village is also close to the Offa's Dyke and Wye Valley walks - a wonderful all year round location with plenty to see and do for all the family.

A beautiful and exceptionally spacious barn conversion. A very high standard of accommodation throughout. Didn't want to leave it!
Ms Pullman, Bournemouth, May 2013
We are quite a large extended family, so this barn was fantastic for us all to spend a fun weekend together. The owner was very friendly and the barn had everything we needed. The heating was good too which was a bonus on such a cold weekend. Lovely surroundings for long walks too!

Mr Leader, Shrewsbury, December 2012
The property met our requirements to the full, it enabled each individual to have their own personal space when required. The heating of the barn conversion was excellent despite the size.
