  • “The barn is in a good location for visiting many local towns.”

    Close to Symonds Yat and River Wye for walking. Our hosts, Judy and Peter were so helpful and kind.

The property

In the leafy village of Peterstow is this gorgeous cottage, set on the owner's grounds and attached to their handy garage, perfectly situated for an adventurous getaway to Herefordshire.

The Wren's Nest offers a homely base for a small family or group of four to enjoy a memorable holiday to the heart of England.

You are welcomed by a grand private driveway with a unique turning circle, taking you towards your private entrance, facing opposite the owner's home.

On entering, be charmed by an amply-equipped kitchen/diner, where the designated chef of the group can rustle up delicious home-cooked meals for the group before heading to one of the family dining tables.

Enjoy a casual breakfast in the kitchen/diner or head into the stunning living/dining room to host special occasions, toasting to a wonderful holiday over a bottle of wine.

Once dinner has been cleared away in the dishwasher, settle down for a night within the spacious sitting area, cuddling up on one of the plush sofas whilst the wall-mounted TV entertains you, or enjoying a night of family fun with one of the board games to keep you busy.

Also on the ground floor, is a handy cloakroom and access to your very own patio, a private spot where you can dine alfresco with a drink in hand on a warm summer's day.

When sleep calls, head upstairs to find two inviting bedrooms, a well-presented double and a snug twin, both with ample storage, exposed beams resting on sloped wooden walls, and airy Velux windows for stargazing.

Prepare for an exciting day in the sleek shower room, letting beads of water unwind your muscles in the walk-in shower before wrapping yourself up in a toasty towel from the heated rail.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings and take a stroll into the medieval village of Peterstow, boasting a local store to grab some ingredients for an evening meal, and a traditional pub where you can tuck into some pub grub when you don't fancy cooking.

A scenic drive will bring you to the riverside town of Ross-on-Wye, home to a wealth of independent shops, welcoming pubs, quaint tearooms, and restaurants, as well as the sparkling River Wye running through, recognised as the canoeing capital of Europe, you can take a guided journey along the winding waters in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Lace up your walking boots and head out for a day of outdoor activities in your choice of nearby landscapes, including the rugged Forest of Dean where you can go hiking, climbing, mountain biking, and canoeing, or delight in challenging walks at the Herefordshire Trail and the Wye Valley Walk.

For a taste of history, visit Goodrich Castle to discover ancient Norman ruins, medieval buildings, or travel through the enchanting woods to find King Arthur's Cave and over to Seven Sisters Rocks.

Other local attractions include the popular Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo, filled with exotic butterflies housed in a tropical climate, whilst the International Centre for Birds of Prey can be found further afield where nature lovers will delight in the chance to meet falcons, eagles, and owls.

Symonds Yat offers an abundance of things to do and places to visit, such as The aMazing Hedge Puzzle, outdoor laser tag, and Blasmere leisure park, providing fun for all the family!
