    “The cottage is ancient and medieval in origin but has been furnished and updated and decorated extremely well to make for a very comfortable stay for up to four.”

    It also has a beautiful garden for sitting in and eating outdoors. Being on a working farm in the depths of the country it is really relaxing and our hosts could not have been more pleasant, welcoming and helpful. We had a great week.

The property

Whitney-on-Wye 4.7 miles.

A beautiful semi-detached black and white cottage ideally located on the owner's organic farm, owned by The National Trust, surrounded by 300 acres of farm and woodland incorporating numerous walks and an abundance of wildlife and wild flowers - watch out for the owner's cattle, sheep and chickens but not forgetting to take in the amazing long distance views.

The high quality and personal touches are evident as you step inside this delightful cottage.

Two stunning first floor beamed bedrooms have been thoughtfully furnished with crisp cotton bedlinen and fluffy towels.

The bathroom boasts a separate shower and bath, ideal for those wishing to take a relaxing soak after a day on the hills.

On the ground floor is a well-equipped beamed kitchen with dining area and a gorgeous beamed sitting room with ample sumptuous seating, door to the rear garden and window perfect for sitting and taking in the lovely views.

Outside enjoy an evening BBQ, alfresco dining or sit, relax and take in the sounds of the countryside.

You are ideally placed to explore the stunning Black Mountains and the National Park.

Why not take one of the many footpaths up Hay Bluff, a prominent hill that crosses the border of Wales and England, with a flat summit and panoramic views across the town of Hay and the Wye Valley, and enjoy a walk along the ridge to Black Hill?

Alternatively, take a drive to the stunning natural lake at Llangorse, where you can enjoy lakeside walks or take a trip out on the pedaloes.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as canoeing on the River Wye, as well as popular salmon or coarse fishing.

Take time out and go pony trekking to see the Black Mountains and Radnorshire Hills.

Hay-on-Wye is also on the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, opening up even more days out exploring the fabulous mountains in the park.

Slightly further afield, there is Builth Wells, with the Royal Welsh Showground, that hosts various annual events.

Perhaps take a trip to the popular cathedral city of Hereford, and enjoy a day at the racecourse on the edge of the city.

A tranquil retreat perfect for a memorable holiday at any time of year.

About the location


Eardisley 4.2 miles; Hay-on-Wye 6 miles; Hereford 17.3 miles

A pretty Herefordshire village nestling on the banks of the River Wye, close to the Welsh border. Many lovely walks can be enjoyed from the village with the Herefordshire Trail, Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke Path all passing close by. The whole area is renowned for its beautiful countryside, which provides excellent cycling, bird watching, fishing and canoeing in the nearby River Wye - look out for the otters by the river and the Red Kites above! Nearby, the delightful medieval village of Eardisley is part of Herefordshire's famous Black & White Village Trail. It boasts many early 16th century black and white cottages, two pubs and village shop. Hay on Wye, the 'town of books', renowned for it's world famous Hay Festival of Literature, lies on the Welsh/English border. This ancient market town lies on the River Wye in the Brecon Beacons National Park, and is renowned for its many book shops, antique shops, restaurants and cafes, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The ancient city of Hereford, the epitome of picturesque England, lies just over half an hour’s drive away, with its magnificent cathedral housing its famous chained library and Mappa Mundi. Builth Wells can be reached within a pleasant drive, and is home to an 18-hole golf course, a pony trekking centre and a selection of amenities, plus each July it plays host to the Royal Welsh Show. Visit the popular riverside towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth or try the excellent cafes and restaurants in Ludlow and Abergavenny.
