  • "A lovely apartment in a wonderful Victorian house."

    The entrance is amazing and the garden is very well kept. The hosts are very welcoming. There is so much to do in the area and it is set right at the side of Offas Dyke Way. Well worth a visit.

  • "It would be mean to be over critical, and hope this does not appear to be so."

    However, although the place was spotless, well equipped and comfy, it did have a couple of drawbacks. Firstly it was offered as a single ground floor apartment, in many ways true, once inside the front door, it was flat and level, but access to the front door involved climbing up and down higgledy piggeldy stairs, not easy if you have mobility difficulties, secondly parking was very difficult, even in the village square. Not what we really expected and rather marred our stay. Had we known about the access problems we would have stayed away. A pity, it was very well presented and comfy.

    We are sorry you were disappointed. However, we should point out that the description of the property on line states quite clearly 'Please note: There are a number of steps up to this property, may not be suitable for guests with limited mobility'. We're glad we passes muster for comfort and cleanliness! Property Owner

  • "Our hosts were very considerate, generous and kind."

    The accommodation was very comfortable, well equipped, thoughtfully laid out, and provided us with everything we needed. Parking was also available close by. The views across the garden and to nearby countryside were delightful. Kington itself had a feeling of friendly relaxed unspoilt charm. The surrounding countryside was lovely as were the nearby attractions.

  • "The hosts Sarah and Roger were very welcoming and helpful."

    We were greeted with a bottle of prosseco and delicious cookies. There was also some fresh milk left in the fridge. Kingston is a nice little town with shops ,pubs and places to eat out. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas. A car is probably needed. Good for walking. We would definitely stay here again.

The property

Holding a convenient spot on the ground floor of an historic Victorian School House, built in the early 19th century, is this lovely studio-style apartment, Garden View.

Resting in the quaint, Herefordshire village of Kington, at the centre of many scenic walking routes, this self-catering cottage is the ideal base for those looking to see the best of the Herefordshire countryside.

Make your way through the owner’s private multi-level garden, and climb the steps to the entrance of Garden View, entering into the kitchen/diner area where you can look forward to making a hot cup of tea after a brisk country walk.

When you want to impress your other half with some cooking skills, whip up a tasty dish to be served at the dining table and enjoy a romantic meal, before retiring to the sitting area next door.

Here you can find a plush sofa with a TV resting before it, perfect for a film night, while the windows provide views of Bradnor Hill and the countryside beyond. Across from this area, rest in the double bed to recharge for another exciting day ahead, and on rising the next morning wake up with a refreshing shower in the neat bathroom.

With many walking opportunities around, this delightful spot in the village of Kington makes Garden View a lovely choice for a holiday in Herefordshire.

About the location


Presteigne 6 miles; Hay-on-Wye 12 miles.

The small town of Kington, well regarded as a centre for walking, is situated near the England/Wales border in a beautiful area known as the Welsh Marches. It is a wonderful area of wooded hills, tranquil valleys and unspoilt Black and White villages on the English side and the more rugged Cambrian Mountains on the Welsh side. 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. Further afield there is plenty to do, pony treking is available at the Black Mountains and why not try Canoeing on the river Wye. There are a variety of tourist attractions close by including the Small Breeds Farm and Owl Centre, the nationally important Hergest Croft Gardens, Offa’s Dyke Path and Mortimer Trail long distance footpaths, and slightly further afield the National Trust properties of Croft Castle and Berrington Hall. Bradnor Hill, with England’s highest golf course, lies just outside the town. Also within easy reach and well worth a visit is the delightful town of Hay-on-Wye with its numerous book shops, craft and antique shops, along with hosting the famous Hay Festival during the Spring Bank Holiday. Nearby is Ludlow, famous for its gourmet food shops and fine restaurants. The ancient city of Hereford, with its impressive Norman cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi, a 13th century cartographer's interpretation of the world, offers a great day out. A delightful holiday location to suit all ages and tastes.
