  • “A beautiful, old,cosy oak-beamed ...”

    A beautiful, old,cosy oak-beamed cottage in a picture-postcard village street with gorgeous salmon river at the bottom by the village green. Like stepping back to a simpler time. Yet with all essential modern home amenities. Lovely rooms, comfortable beds,lounge with feature fireplace. Country kitchen. Sun-trap of a rear patio garden. Everything we needed. And there's such a lot of interest in the surrounding area! We will certainly be back to idyllic Fern House...

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.
