The property

Hereford 4.4 miles.

Found on a private estate alongside the owner's home, accessed via electronic gates, is this delightful 19th century converted stables.

The Stables dates back to the 1860s and is an all-ground-floor property offering spacious and high-quality accommodation for a couple wanting to explore the city of Hereford and the stunning countryside of the Wye Valley.

Entering Beechcroft, which is the name of the owner's home, you will find a large gravel driveway with assigned private parking for one car; the owner has other holiday homes on this estate that each have a designated car parking space.

Entering the property into the open-plan kitchen/living/dining room, you will find a great blend of original features, such as vaulted ceilings and wooden beams, complemented by contemporary touches, like the underfloor heating, skylight and kitchen units.

The grey stone flooring has underfloor heating, to keep this space homely and warm, alongside the woodburning stove, which comes with a small supply of logs, kept in the garden.

The sitting room area has a large leather sofa and wall-mounted TV, which can be adjusted to face the dining area, so you can enjoy your breakfast whilst watching your favourite Netlfix shows.

The sitting area also features sliding doors, which open up onto the front of the property and allow in plenty of light while the well-designed kitchen, with beautiful navy blue cabinets, sleek wooden work tops and Belfast sink, is fully-equipped with everything you could need to cook up a romantic evening meal for two during your stay.

A small snug area by the front door of the property has a cosy armchair facing the window, where you can relax with a good book or just enjoy looking out onto the estate.

The carpeted king-size bedroom has wonderful solid oak doors, lots of storage space, a Smart TV with Netflix and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, where you can prepare for each day.

Outside, the enclosed patio has a table and seating for two, plus a private hot tub, so you can indulge and enjoy the warmth of the water at the end of a long day of adventure.

There is also a storage area for bikes, an orchard and a communal barbecue area with seating which guests are welcome to use and feel free to bring your trusty companion along, as two small or one medium-sized pet are welcome at The Stables.

Close to Little Lugg and the River Wye, plenty of riverside strolls can be enjoyed from the property, while the village of Cross Keys offers a pub just a short walk away.

The city of Hereford lies on the River Wye and is just a few miles from the property, with a wide selection of bars, pubs, cafés, shops and restaurants, as well as an eclectic mix of architecture from almost every British era and its own cathedral, a Grade I listed building which contains Mappa Mundi, a medieval map of the world created around 1300 by Richard of Holdingham and listed on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

Hereford is well-known for being a cider producer, and you can visit its cider museum and learn about the history of cider in the area, including Bulmers, which was created in Hereford.

The half-timbered town of Leominster is a short distance away, filled with medieval buildings and home to the National Trust's Berrington Hall, an 18th century country house and gardens that was once the seat of the Cawley family.

Explore the Wye Valley AONB and enjoy picturesque walks through nature; Symonds Yat Rock, an ancient hill fort offering incredible views of the River Wye with miles of walking trails, a cycle track and picnic area is a must-see, you may even spot protected Peregrine falcons flying from their nests.

Make The Stables your romantic retreat for your next holiday to the Cotswolds.

About the location

HEREFORD

Leominster 14 miles.

The cathedral city of Hereford dates back to Saxon times, and with its medieval bridge over the winding River Wye it is the very image of picturesque England. With a mix of buildings from almost every British era, eclectic Hereford is a popular base for those seeking to explore the locale – being ideally placed for accessing the Black and White villages of the region, not to mention the delights of neighbouring Shropshire, Worcestershire and The Cotswolds. Famous as a cider producing town, Hereford is also the home of the Mappa Mundi, the largest and most elaborate pre-15th century map in existence, which resides in the cathedral alongside the famous Chained Library – a collection of over 1500 rare books from as early as the 8th century. Nearby is the half timbered town of Leominster, filled with medieval buildings, often overhanging the street, and also accessible is the natural splendour of Symonds Yat, a rocky outcrop on a 5 mile bend of the River Wye, with spectacular views and the opportunity to spot protected peregrine falcons flying from their nests.
