The property

Hereford 11 miles.

Situated in rural Herefordshire, this Grade ll listed building of great character and charm has original features such as oak beams and offers period-style accommodation.

Mainstone House is a typical Herefordshire traditional black and white house in the hamlet of Trumpet, surrounded by idyllic countryside and ideal for hosting a group celebration.

An inviting, spacious reception room welcomes you with its warm carpet, plush seating and wide-ranging library for those who love to lose themselves in a good book.

In the adjoining main sitting room there are relaxing sofas, a heart-warming wood burning stove, a cinema-style projector for family film nights and a generous selection of games and toys including a football table.

Only a few steps down and you are in a characterful, period dining room, the ideal space for hosting dinner parties to your taste.

The spacious kitchen-diner with its lofty ceiling and wooden beams, amply equipped with all essentials and a dining table for informal eating encourages you to rustle up anything from a hasty snack to a lavish celebratory meal.

Leading from the kitchen on the ground floor there is a bedroom with double bed suitable for guests with limited mobility and access off the dining room to ground floor shower, wash basin and toilet.

An enclosed staircase leads up to a bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite shower, wash basin and toilet.

From the kitchen is also access to the enclosed garden where a few short paces take you to the covered hot tub area and nearby outdoor seating and dining table.

For young children there is a choice of outdoor play equipment.

Returning through the dining room to the main staircase you have access to the remaining four upstairs bedrooms, two with generous king-size double beds (one with shower, wash basin and toilet en-suite), a third with double bed and the fourth a family suite with double bed and two cabin bunk beds suitable for children.

Two bedrooms have child safety gates.

About the location


Hereford 15 miles.

The ancient market town of Ledbury (4 miles), dating back to 960 AD, nestles under the Malvern Hills east of Hereford, surrounded by unspoilt English countryside. Ledbury lies on the River Leadon and is famous for its numerous timbered buildings, including Ledbury Park, believed to be one the finest Black and White buildings in England, the 17th century Market House in the town centre and The Painted Room, home to 16th century frescoes. Many music, art and food and drink festivals can be enjoyed in the town and the surrounding area. From time to time music, art, poetry, food and drink festivals are held in the town. Nearby is Eastnor Castle, a fine example of a 19th century, mock-medieval castle, and numerous festivals are held in Eastnor Park. Close by is the historic city of Hereford with its 11th century cathedral, world famous Mappa Mundi and Chained Library. Malvern offers guests many lovely walks along the hills, a luxurious spa and for the car enthusiasts the Morgan Motor Company. Guests can also enjoy the local vineyards, travel along the Elgar Route, visit the Black and White villages and enjoy the many outdoor activities available in the Forest of Dean and beautiful Wye Valley. A great holiday destination at any time of year.
