  • “Couldn't have been more perfect, a beautiful property, clean and with everything we needed to enjoy our break.”

    - Mr Bradbrook, October 2020

The property

Set within a beautiful Victorian School House which dates back to the 1830s, is this lofty and spacious studio-apartment, resting in the village of Kington on the English side of the England/Wales border.

Restored to provide a lovely holiday home for a couple’s romantic break, this open-plan space contains elegant, antique furnishings, along with all the contemporary essentials.

Enjoy relaxing within the sitting area with light flooding in from the large picture windows which offer views of Bradnor Hill.

Rustle up a treat in the kitchen area, and serve it at the quaint, wooden dining table as you discuss your plans for the rest of your stay.

Recharge your batteries and rest in the king-size bed tucked in the corner of the room, and wake up to enjoy a refreshing shower in the bathroom.

Explore the beautiful area of Herefordshire with walks along the River Arrow, meandering over the Shropshire Hills AONB, and crossing the border into Wales to see delightful towns like Llandrindod Wells.

The School Room is a perfect spot to unwind when not out and about in Herefordshire.

Kington Apartments

Both apartments offer a simple, charming base for couples or small groups of friends, with a preference for exploring pretty villages and towns, and meandering over the countryside. Within Garden View you discover a kitchen/diner, with an open-plan bedroom-cum-sitting room next door, completed by a smart shower room. Expect to find a lofty and bright space within The School Room, where a studio-layout has been created to make the most of the space, with picture windows providing views of Bradnor Hill beyond. Make use of the kitchen space, dining area and the lovely sitting area where two single sofa beds offer extra room. Kington lies on the English side of the England/Wales border, and is well-positioned mid-way between the Shropshire Hills AONB and the Brecon Beacons National Park, so you have plenty of choice of walking terrain for those who enjoy being active in the outdoors. Walk along the border following the Mortimer Trail or famous Offa's Dyke Path, and be blown away by the unrivalled views and landscapes along the way.

About the location

KINGTON

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.
