    • “Arrived at this super barn conversion and we were surprised at how homely and welcoming it was considering its size,there was plenty of room for every one and you did not feel like you were squashed in like a few of the places we have visited. the property had everything you could need ,plenty of crockery and kitchen utensils. the beds were of a high quality and extremely comfortable. The icing on the cake was the games room which every generation of our family enjoyed. This in my opinion is a great place for a family to relax and the cut flowers, chocolates, and wine left for us say to me that the owner really consider there guests every need. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone.”

    • “We were a group of 6 adults, 5 children and a baby, this house suited us perfectly. It was big enough that we weren't on top of each other all the time but we still felt all together. Beautiful quality finishes and fittings, I had best shower I've ever had!! Lovely peaceful countryside surrounds the house, it's quite a way to the nearest anything and a bit of a maze of roads but that only adds to the relaxing holiday experience. I can't recommend this house enough, we will definitely be back for a visit!”

    • “A fantastic holiday cottage for families.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A first class holiday cottage geared towards families. Absolutely spotless and with everything we needed for our weeks stay last Christmas. We were made to feel very welcome and there was a christmas tree in the lounge with a small hamper of goodies and a puzzle each for our two grandchildren. The games room was an added bonus and was enjoyed by all, with a table tennis knockout competition throughout the week. The location had lovely views & was quiet with only a handful of properties in the small village, a car is necessary as there are no shops close by. The twin bedroom with a tv & shower room down stairs was great for my elderly father, who couldn't climb the stairs. All in all a fantastic holiday cottage.”

About the location


Hereford 12 miles; Abergavenny 15 miles; Hay-on-Wye 15 miles.

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.
