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.

Peace and quiet in the middle of nowhere! Beautiful scenery.
Mrs Caporn, Liphook, April 2013
Despite snow and icy conditions, the cottage was warm and welcoming. The location was perfect and had lovely open views.
Mr Grochowska, Nottingham, March 2013
Friendly greeting on arrival. Perfectly peaceful location and a very nice spacious and spotlessly clean cottage. The views were absolutely awe inspiring, to be surrounded by sheep, goats and chickens made it so relaxing but also close by were so many places to explore and eat at. The owner also left a greeting pack of essentials to start our holiday, I don't think anyone could ask for more.
Mr Williams, Coventry, February 2013
This is a truly lovely place to stay - stunning views, blissful peace and quiet, a comfortable cottage and a very genuine and warm welcome from the cottage's kind and thoughtful owners. The cottage faces across the fields and it's fun to watch the antics of the goats and the coming and goings of the sheep right outside the windows. The owners are happy for guests to wander around the farm at will. Lambing time would be a fascinating time to visit I think. Very easy to get to Hereford. Lovely cathedral and a nice farmers market on a Saturday. Equally easy to get the Black Mountains. Don't hesitate to stay here during the winter time. We stayed during the snow in January and were beautifully warm and cosy. This is a very restful place with a really nice vibe about it. We have stayed in self-catering cottages for many, many years, there's not many we've been tempted to return to but this would be one of them!
