    “City boy falls in love with the starry nights”

    We arrived at the Hayloft with Storm Dennis looming over us. The Hayloft is what I would describe as "rustic chic". It is done to a very high standard, it wouldn't look out of place in modern city as a studio apartment. The finish is top notch and it was the perfect shelter from the stormy nights. There's a small kitchen that was perfectly adequate for a short stay. The Hayloft is warm and cosy, and feels very homely ...

    We arrived at the Hayloft with Storm Dennis looming over us. The Hayloft is what I would describe as "rustic chic". It is done to a very high standard, it wouldn't look out of place in modern city as a studio apartment. The finish is top notch and it was the perfect shelter from the stormy nights. There's a small kitchen that was perfectly adequate for a short stay. The Hayloft is warm and cosy, and feels very homely. Our hosts were lovely, and we were greeted with scrumptious home-made carrot cake. The nights were silent occasionally punctuated by some of the near by animals on the 50-acre farm. A welcome change from the mad dash of city life and the relentless noise of car engines. Due to the weather we were unable to explore the farm land. However, we made a habit of visiting the baby lambs and racing horses every day. There are two awesome farm dogs that roam around and super friendly. As well as chickens and pheasants! There is no shortage of things to do - there is a well put together welcome pack that has a plethora of things to do. For an excellent evening meal we would highly recommend The Cider Barn in Pembridge which is about a ten minutes away. For a fun day out we would recommend the Small Breeds Farm in Kington (also roughly ten minutes away) this turned out to be a great day out! My favourite bit was of course the stars! As a city boy I rarely have the opportunity to see the stars. Every night I fell asleep under the stars (there is a skylight directly over the bed). The sky at night was wonderful, with zero light pollution the stars were ridiculous bright. Sleeping under the stars like that feels like a rare privilege that few city dwellers have had the chance to experience. We had a few minor issues:- 1) The post code only takes you to the general area, the actual property is further on down the lane. This could be resolved by using What3Words or even sharing the latitude and longitude. 2) The door was pretty difficult to lock from the outside. 3) Due to the constant down pour the metal stairs were rather slippery. I was very lucky and managed to catch myself on the rail before having a very nasty fall. All in all, we are planning to visit again. Fingers crossed for slightly better weather next time! PS, thanks to "kate" for leaving your Netflix logged in on the TV :)

About the location

ALMELEY

Kington 5.9 miles; Pembridge 7.1 miles.

The rural and picturesque village of Almeley is a fantastic spot to enjoy a break away from it all. It is home to Almeley Market and Deli which can be found by The Bells Inn. Here you can peruse the locally sourced produce, order lunch from what you see and enjoy a pint of real ale. Nearby, the small town of Kington, well regarded as a centre for walking, is celebrated by visitors for its lovely scenery and excellent walking and cycling in the surrounding rolling hills. This quiet, pleasant town offers a number of excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. There are a variety of tourist attractions close by including the Kingswood Small Breed Farm Park and Owl Centre, the pretty blooms at the Hergest Croft Gardens and the Mortimer Trail. Travel a little further to the bustling medieval village of Pembridge which lies on the Black & White Village Trail and boasts many striking 15th and 16th century half-timbered buildings, and has held markets and fairs in the village since the early 1200s. The village has a beautiful 14th century market hall, 3 traditional village pubs, an excellent village store, a cafe and a church with a unique detached bell tower. Surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside including Offa's Dyke and the Golden Valley, this is an excellent location for walking and cycling trails as well as sampling wonderful local produce at a local cheese factory, vineyard and cider farms.
