Set in the heart of a working organic dairy farm, is this charming and traditional 17th century dwelling, Bluebell Cottage, attached to the owners farm house.

Boasting many characterful features, this Grade II listed cottage is the perfect farm stay, with two farm dogs, and suited to guests seeking a nature loving adventure in the Herefordshire countryside.

A perfect base for enjoying many countryside walks through the open fields surrounding the cottage.

The area around Bluebell Cottage boasts an abundance of wildlife, bring your wellies, waterproofs (on the off change it may rain!) and binoculars and enjoy watching deer, foxes and diverse bird life.

The mellow noises of the wildlife can be heard day and night – watch the sun set whilst the owls hoot before retiring for a peaceful night’s sleep.

Make yourself feel right at home in this comfortable former farm workers cottage, as you relax in the well-equipped open-plan living space or rustle up a tasty meal in the kitchen which has everything the designated chef would need.

Each of the bedrooms can be found hosting a double bed and an abundance of storage, as well as being served by a bathroom with both a bath and shower perfect for settling in to your home away from home.

Be sure to take a tour of the incredible organic dairy farm by the Farmer and meet traditional farm animals along the way, all of which can be arranged with the owner prior to your stay.

Secure bike storage can be arranged on the farm so you can head out for a thrilling cycle from the cottage along many country lanes taking in the beautiful scenery and more of the natural wildlife.
