    The house is very well equiped and beautifully decorated with plenty of interesting period features including an inglenook fireplace that make it a real treat to stay in. When we arrived the property was very clean and well presented as well as being nice and warm (we stayed for a weekend in February). The small, pituresque town has plenty amenities. As well as shops there are two pubs, one serving food and the other historic parlour pub allows you to take in fish and chips from the great chippy next door. We also made use of the selection of walks and maps that are in the house although our following of routes had a bit to be desired. The walks take you out by either of the rivers and cater for the stroll, the hiker or those who 'freestyled'.

The property

Fern House is a simply wonderful, Grade II listed cottage in the quaint country village of Leintwardine in Herefordshire.

Bursting with character and charming original features, this is a heart-warming stay for a relaxing getaway never to forget.

Enter this one-of-a-kind, olde worlde cottage and be enticed by its snug sitting room, dominated by wooden beams and a tremendous stone fireplace housing a woodburning stove, what better place to kick back and unwind?

Step through into a gorgeous, country-cottage style kitchen/diner, graced with rustic features including quarry tile flooring, wooden furnishings and a fabulous AGA cooker.

A modern shower room beautifully contrasts with the rest of the interior, boasting a double walk-in shower and stunning metro tiles.

A traditionally steep staircase brings you to the first floor, benefiting from original wooden floorboards, up here you will discover two wonderful double bedrooms enhanced by wooden beams, perfectly peaceful spots to catch that much-needed rest.

The beauty of Fern House flows out to its tranquil patio garden, splendidly maintained and with home-grown herbs available to spruce up your meals.

The village of Leintwardine is a lovely, quiet spot to base your holiday, offering a couple of pubs, a fish and chip shop and a convenience store.

This area is excellent for walking, as the Herefordshire Trail and the Shropshire Way run nearby.

The fabulous market town of Ludlow also comes nearby and is well worth a look around, presenting over 500 listed buildings and a striking castle.

The area offers visitors many lovely walks in all directions including the Herefordshire Trail which runs through the village, and also nearby is the Shropshire Way. Close by is the pretty village of Bucknell which nestles on the banks of the River Redlake and lies within the Shropshire Hills - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering a pub, butcher and general store. The historic medieval market town of Ludlow is situated on the River Teme, amongst the outstanding countryside of the Welsh Marches. With more than 500 listed buildings, Ludlow’s medieval street pattern remains almost intact and provides a fascinating backdrop for the town’s regular street markets, held in the shadow of the castle and showcasing a range of goods - from cheeses and fresh produce to books and local crafts. Ludlow is renowned for its shopping, with a number of antique and art and craft shops, along with a Michelin-starred restaurant and numerous tea shops, pubs and inns. Ludlow Castle is over 900-years old and contains fascinating examples of architecture while below, the Millennium Green offers a large public riverside green and the popular Green Cafe. Ludlow plays host to many food and drink festivals in spring and autumn, as well as the Medieval Christmas Festival and Shakespeare and Arts festivals in the summer. The World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Cardingmill Valley are all within easy reach and make a memorable day out for all the family. A wonderful holiday destination in a beautiful part of the country.
