  • "This is a beautiful place to stay, so quiet and comfortable with shops within driving distance."

    All that you need in the property. Thank you so much for the items you left for us to arrive to this was so helpful. We spent many an hour sat watching the wildlife from the windows and garden with a constant supply of visiting birds. Cannot fault this lovely cottage. Great for our pet too who was welcomed. We will definitely look forward to returning here.

    Thank you for your comments so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Property Owner

  • "I booked this for my friend and her partner."

    They didn't have a bad thing to say about it, lovely place with beautiful views. Said they could happily live there permanently. Bit out of the way, thought they were lost, but had good directions from owner. They have no sat nav or mobiles, just a map. Really enjoyed their stay. They loved the rural location a lot. She had an owl outside her room, enjoyed the wildlife.

    We are so glad you enjoyed the country life. yes it is quite most of the time but county life still has to go on as well. most of the roads do bring you around to where you wont to go or end up. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful, spacious and clean cottage with absolute stunning views."

    At our arrival we were welcomed with milk, bread, butter, biscuits and even fresh flowers! Our dog (and we!) enjoyed the walks right from our doorstep, with endless possibilities, but also the walks a short drive away in the Haugh woods! Just a few comments, positively meant: -the taps in the bathroom were constantly leaking, which means a significant loss of water on an annual basis. This also applies to the toilet water reservoir! - The matresses were rather wobbly and the double matress had a significant dent! Our impression was that the matresses were due for renewal! Apart from these issues we had a wonderful stay at the cottage with a 100% privacy!

  • "This is in an incomparable location with great views over woodland and farmland."

    The cottage was very clean and comfortable with everything that you could possibly need. Despite only having one bedroom, it is also very spacious. The owner kindly provides several extras too, such as bread, butter, biscuits and eggs along with the regular "Welcome Pack" of tea, coffee, sugar and milk. Your dog does not lose out either, with treats provided for them, too. The patio garden has sun all day and a view to die for over the gorgeous herbaceous border, if you wanted to sit out under the sun umbrella all day. If you want to tour around, however, it is conveniently situated between Hereford and Ledbury with Hay on Wye, Ross on Wye and Ludlow more further afield. All of the above mentioned are well worth a visit. Altogether a piece of truly unspoilt rural heaven.

Specially as they lived in the farm opposite. But they did provide us with a nice range of wheatfree products which was nice.

Courtyard Cottages

Woolhope 1 mile. These three carefully converted barns are in a peaceful courtyard setting, a mile from the centre of the pretty Herefordshire village of Woolhope. Nestled at the foot of Marcle Hill, these delightful cottages are ideal for friends and family who are looking to explore this fantastic area. Each cottage has a well-equipped open plan living area, comfortable bedrooms and their own private outdoor space to sit, relax and enjoy a morning coffee. Guests are welcome to use the half acre playing field with swings, playhouse and goalposts which is sure to keep the children entertained. Walks and cycle rides are available on your doorstep or you can enjoy the nearby Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty of The Malvern Hills and The Wye Valley. The beautiful market town of Ross-on-Wye is close by where you can admire the impressive 17th century Market Hall and Tudor timbered houses or enjoy a stroll along the banks of the River Wye, a river famed for its salmon fishing and watersports. The world famous beauty spot of Symonds Yat is also within easy reach and here the river has carved a dramatic gorge through towering limestone cliffs. For something a little different why not spend a morning finding out about the secrets of cheese making at the Monkland Cheese Dairy or you might like to discover the art of gin and vodka production at the local award-winning Chace Distillery? The cathedral cities of Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester are well worth a visit, as are any number of National Trust properties and gardens, such as the magnificent Berrington Hall.

About the location


  • Fownhope 2.7 miles
  • Ledbury 7 miles
  • Hereford 7 miles
  • Ross-on-Wye 7 miles

Just 7 miles from Hereford, the picturesque village of Woolhope lies in unspoilt countryside and boasts two traditional village pubs, both serving excellent local food and real ale. Woolhope is close to the Wye Valley Walk, a 136-mile trail following the border between England and Wales, as well as The Hereforshire Trail and Three Choirs Way. Close by, Haugh Woods offer 850 acres of ancient forest boasting many rare species of moth and butterfly and numerous lovely walks through an unspoilt area of Herefordshire. Local produce can be acquired in the popular monthly farmers’ markets in Woolhope and nearby Fownhope, which boasts an Iron Age Hill Fort and stunning views from Capler Hill. Nearby Hereford, with its wonderful 11th century cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi is worth a visit, as are the riverside towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth with their timbered buildings, striking 17th century market halls and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. A walk on Marcle Ridge looks across the valley to the ancient town of Ledbury which is just a short drive away with its many listed, timber-framed buildings, the most outstanding being the 17th century Market House in the town centre. The town has bustled with street markets since the 12th century and is home to antique and flea markets, craft fairs, as well as gardens, book and poetry festivals. Enjoy the beautiful countryside by taking a stroll along the banks of the River Wye, a hot air balloon ride or a canoe down the river. The charming 'town of books' Hay-on-Wye, the magnificent Black Mountains, unspoilt Brecon Beacons National Park, magnificent Royal Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills, all make a great day out.
