    Mr Jenkins

    “We had a lovely time at Elephant cottage.”

    The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Mr and Mrs Lewis were very welcoming, and gave us some hints and tips about the local area and where to visit. My husband enjoyed the fishing in the pools and even managed to catch something!! Our little dog enjoyed the enclosed garden and the freedom of running in the fields. The weather was not very kind to us, but it did not detract from a really enjoyable stay. ...

    The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Mr and Mrs Lewis were very welcoming, and gave us some hints and tips about the local area and where to visit. My husband enjoyed the fishing in the pools and even managed to catch something!! Our little dog enjoyed the enclosed garden and the freedom of running in the fields. The weather was not very kind to us, but it did not detract from a really enjoyable stay. The only disappointment was when I booked I misjudged the dates by 1 day, and when I called Skyes to change it I was charged an extra administration fee of £30, despite there being no difference in price which I feel was unfair.

The property

Quaint, idyllic and in the middle in a beautiful location within the heart of Herefordshire, Elephant Cottage is set within the grounds of the owner’s farm which was once owned by a Birmingham circus family, who relocated from the city to retire with their animals.

It was here that a baby elephant was housed in this old barn building until it moved away.

Hence the name!

Today, the beautiful old barn has a mix of both new and more rustic features; the old beams and trusses remain, with a section of original wattle and daub inside.

Light and airy due to the high beam ceilings and multiple windows that look over the surrounding farm lands, Elephant Cottage has one bed room on the first floor which holds a superking size double room, along with a shower room and WC.

The kitchen area is kitted out with all the mod-cons you could ever need, with the dining/living room hosting an open fire.

Outside, there is a large, private garden area a mere 200 metres away from a small lake stocked with brown trout and carp.

Nearby there are opportunities to walk in all directions, with a pub and shop within three miles away from the property. Elephant Cottage is a great place for couples to come and relax for a long weekend or week-long holiday, where you can explore the countryside of Herefordshire.

LEOMINSTER

Hereford 12 miles; Ludlow 12 miles.

Leominster is located in the heart of the beautiful border countryside, where England and Wales nudge each other along Offa’s Dyke. Dating back to the 7th Century, the town of Leominster possesses some fine examples of architecture such as the Priory Church, along with a wide variety of shops, cafes and pubs, and is the ideal place in which to spend a lazy afternoon strolling around in pleasant surroundings. Nearby is the smaller market town of Tenbury Wells situated on the banks of the River Teme. Dating back to the Iron Age and said to have been called 'my little town in the orchard' by Queen Victoria, Tenbury Wells boasts a unique 18th century bridge built by Thomas Telford, the magnificent Pump Rooms, which housed baths where local mineral water was available, and many other listed buildings dating back to the 17th century. Close by are many National Trust properties including Croft Castle and Berrington Hall, plus the Judge's Lodgings in Presteigne, Stokesay Castle, the renowned Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm are well worth a visit. Sample Herefordshire's famous cider or discover Hereford with it's fascinating Mappa Mundi world map and the captivating chained library, home to a collection of rare and ancient books while nearby Bromyard has an air of timelessness with many half-timbered buildings, helping visitors relax amongst a good range of pubs, restaurants and shops. The pretty medieval market town of Ludlow makes a great day out, with more than 500 listed buildings and a magnificent castle, and also within easy reach are Ironbridge and Hay-on-Wye. The magnificent Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons National Park and stunning Malvern Hills also make a great day out.
