Shobdon 1 mile.

A charming, stone-built, end-terrace cottage, located in the rural hamlet of Ledicot, on the edge of the pretty village of Shobdon, in Herefordshire.

Comfortably furnished throughout, this spacious Shobdon cottage offers the perfect base for a get-together with friends, or a family break in this beautiful part of the country.

Set over three floors, the cottage has a first and a second floor king-size double bedroom, one with the added benefit of an en-suite basin and WC.

The family bathroom is the perfect place for a relaxing soak after a day exploring the Elan Valley.

This Shobdon cottage offers a kitchen, which, with its family dining area, makes a great place to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals or for relaxing and chatting over the morning paper with a cup of coffee.

Unwind in the cosy sitting room by the warming woodburning stove, ideal for those chilly evenings.

An oak-framed garden room extends from the back of the cottage, where you can find a dining table and comfy sofas.

The room makes a lovely space to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner when the weather is bright, or the perfect spot to curl up with a good book and enjoy wonderful views of the garden outside, which is large and enclosed with a patio and furniture.

Sit outside and soak up the summer sunshine with a family barbecue and gaze at the views and the cottage’s small selection of fruit trees.

The charming village of Shobdon, boasting a traditional pub, a shop and a Post Office, is home to a renowned church of particular architectural interest and its own private airfield, and you can sometimes see and hear planes flying overhead.

The area offers many scenic walks including Offa's Dyke Path and the Herefordshire and Mortimer Trail.

Visit the pretty, unspoilt villages along the Black and White Trail and the unique towns of Hereford, Leominster, Ludlow and Hay-on-Wye.

    • “Great location for exploring Herefordshire”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Welcome pack on arrival. Warm and very clean. Essential boot/dog room to store walking boots and clean the dog prior to admitting her into the lovely warm house. Quirky bedrooms, steep stairs. Kitchen crockery and cutlery plentiful. A large well equipped kitchen. Superbly comfortable beds. The caretaker of the property was most helpful when we had a hitch. My husband and I had a lovely stay and visited the places where we had honeymooned. 40 years ago. We were joined by two friends for part of the holiday and visited with friends who live in Hereford. Beautiful views and walks nearby.”

    • “Wonderful property rural herefordshire location but ideally situated for Shropshire ( Ludlow and Stokesey castle a must) and Worcestershire as well as Wales. The enclosed garden perfect for a lively dog. The cottage provided everything we could require, All we needed to get was our food. Looking forward to returning in June when we will have the opportunity to further explore the area and relax in the garden in the evening. The owners supply a comprehensive series of folders with details of local attractions, walks, dog friendly places and of course eateries as well as maps of the area. They really did think of everything! A gem of a place!”

    • “A beautiful cottage set back from the road with a lovely private garden that is fully enclosed so safe for children and pets. Two good size bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Hayley who is the caretaker came round on request when I needed the high chair for my youngest grandson, as my family were coming for dinner her husband came round and gave the grass a quick trim and picked up the fallen apples. Easily sat 8 round the kitchen table for Sunday Lunch. As a keen cook was impressed with the well equipped kitchen. There utensils for children and even a box of things should you have pets. An easy location to visit other places we went to Ludlow, Leominster, Hereford, Ross on Wye, Croft castle to name but a few. I would definitely recommend this cottage.”

    • “Fantastic cottage and location - took a bit of finding being set back from the road! Well equipped, clean, and comfortable - loved it.”

    Mr Alexander, Walton On Thames, October 2014

    • “Home from home is a cliche, but it certainly applies to Stone Cottage. The kitchen and bathroom are fitted to the highest standard. There is a toilet and washbasin on each floor, the range of crockery and cutlery more than sufficient and the beds are most comfortable. The whole place is spotless and welcoming and the garden is a delight, (our dog Oscar loved it). The surrounding area is surely one of the most beautiful in all England with a remarkable array of places to visit and local produce to purchase.”

    Mr Barton, Barnsley, October 2014

    • “Was peaceful and tranquil, no noise or light pollution. There was easy access to get out and about. The facilities were fantastic, catered for every need. The caretaker was a phone call away if you needed anything and nothing was too much trouble.”

    Mrs Hunter, Strood, September 2014

    • “A stunning property, superbly equipped with everything you could possibly need.”
