    “Comfortable, well appointed accomodation in a super location with excellent views all round.”

    It was nice to find eggs, milk and a homemade sponge cake waiting for us on arrival. Tim, the owner, was very happy to show us and our 11 month old grand-daughter around the farm - a good variety of animals; goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits, ponies, cattle, chickens, and rheas! She loved it. On leaving we were able to stock up with fresh produce (eggs, fruit and veg) from the farm.

About the location

HEREFORD

Leominster 14 miles.

The cathedral city of Hereford dates back to Saxon times, and with its medieval bridge over the winding River Wye it is the very image of picturesque England. With a mix of buildings from almost every British era, eclectic Hereford is a popular base for those seeking to explore the locale – being ideally placed for accessing the Black and White villages of the region, not to mention the delights of neighbouring Shropshire, Worcestershire and The Cotswolds. Famous as a cider producing town, Hereford is also the home of the Mappa Mundi, the largest and most elaborate pre-15th century map in existence, which resides in the cathedral alongside the famous Chained Library – a collection of over 1500 rare books from as early as the 8th century. Nearby is the half timbered town of Leominster, filled with medieval buildings, often overhanging the street, and also accessible is the natural splendour of Symonds Yat, a rocky outcrop on a 5 mile bend of the River Wye, with spectacular views and the opportunity to spot protected peregrine falcons flying from their nests.
