  • “The Milking Parlour is the most comfortable holiday let I have stayed in.”

    It is very well equipped; the heating and hot water (so important!) are more than adequate. It has been sensitively furnished and decorated which always adds to the visitor's comfort. The owners are hospitable and kind, without being intrusive.

    It is very well equipped; the heating and hot water (so important!) are more than adequate. It has been sensitively furnished and decorated which always adds to the visitor's comfort. The owners are hospitable and kind, without being intrusive. It nestles in the delightful village of Yarpole. The Herefordshire countryside is glorious and the villages in the locality a joy to explore. I would heartily recommend The Milking Parlour.

The property

A wonderful semi-detached, Grade II listed, ground floor barn conversion dating back to the 1900's, set in the charming grounds of the owner’s black and white timbered home, in the village of Yarpole in Herefordshire.

The cottage offers peace and tranquillity and a great opportunity to completely relax and unwind yet is within a few miles of the market towns of Leominster and Ludlow.

Beautifully converted, this character cottage provides luxurious open plan living complete with a vaulted beamed ceiling, well-equipped kitchen with dining area and a sumptuous seating area.

The charming king-size bedroom has en-suite facilities and TV ensuring guests have everything they need to enjoy a much deserved romantic break in the country.

The front patio area is an excellent place to sit and relax with a refreshing drink, after a day exploring this unspoilt part of the country.

If feeling particularly energetic, there are many outdoor activities to be enjoyed at Oaker Wood Activity Centre, or venture on the golf course to play a round.

The pretty market towns of Ludlow and Leominster also make great days out as well as visiting one of the many National Trust properties in the area.

An ideal holiday cottage for a romantic break at any time of year.
