Docklow Manor Cottages

Leominster 5.5 miles. Situated in an idyllic position amid the rolling hills of Herefordshire are a pair of characterful dwellings, Woodlands Cottage and Yew Tree Cottage, each offering a seamless blend of character and charm, with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. They are set in the beautiful 4-acre grounds of Docklow Manor, where there are formal lawns, herbaceous borders, a kitchen garden, an orchard of apple, pear and cherry trees, and a wild and wooded area too, as well as benches here and there, for guests to sit and enjoy the glorious sunsets and far-reaching views towards Hay Bluff and the Brecon Beacons. Younger visitors will be delighted to find a football net, a trampoline and an endearing treehouse in the woodland, promising hours of entertainment. If you can tear yourselves away from this wonderful hideaway, venture into the market town of Leominster, for its variety of independent shops and renowned antique shops. Alternatively, the ancient cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester are each a short drive away, as is the beautiful timbered town of Ludlow, just over the border in Shropshire. For those feeling active, bring your bikes along to your cottage and explore the cycling trails through Mortimer Forest and beyond, or follow the vast choice of walks in this unspoilt and very special part of rural England. Docklow Manor Cottages are the ideal choice for families, friends and couples seeking a relaxing, restorative break to this pretty part of the country.

About the location


Leominster 5.5 miles; Bromyard 6.5 miles; Hereford 17 miles.

The tiny hamlet of Docklow is surrounded by rolling Herefordshire countryside, and there are some traditional inns within a short drive, which offer a warm welcome and excellent food. Docklow is ideally placed for exploring everything this peaceful county has to offer, as well as – a little further afield - the delights of neighbouring Shropshire, Worcestershire and The Cotswolds.
The area has many lovely walks, including the long-distance Three Choirs Way and Offa’s Dyke, and there are also cycle trails, horse riding and fishing all available nearby. A short drive from Docklow is the historic town of Leominster, with the lovely Priory church, half-timbered architecture, many antique shops and a variety of other independent shops and cafés. A little further away is the cathedral city of Hereford, where the majestic cathedral itself is home to the fascinating Mappa Mundi, and Chained Library. Hereford dates to Saxon times, and its position in the Welsh Marches made it the site of many a skirmish over the centuries. Surrounded by the hills beyond, and with its medieval bridge over the lazy, winding River Wye, it is the very image of picturesque England.
