  • "We had a wonderful stay at The Old Rectory."

    It is a friendly, comfortable, spacious home in a beautiful setting. The house was a perfect size for us, grandparents, parents and children. The extra living room, snug, was an ideal space for the three children (10, 12 and 13) to hang out, whilst the adults relaxed in the lounge. There are plenty of leaflets in the house for local walks and attractions. We had a fabulous stroll around the fields, along the river and up to the church with the owner and her friendly dogs, Paula and Pippa! The house is opposite the dairy farm, and you can hear (and smell!) the cows as they come up for milking, but this did not cause us any issues. We had a food delivery during our stay and there were plenty of pots and pans to cook our meals in. Thank you.

The property

Presteigne 3.6 miles.

Settled into the rural hamlet of Knill, near Presteigne, Herefordshire, The Old Rectory is a beautiful family holiday home ideal for those who love to spend time in the countryside.

Park off-road and enter via the utility, passing a selection of handy amenities and a cloakroom, before finding the characterful living spaces, beginning with a kitchen with ample amenities, ideal for creating a heart-warming meal, which can be enjoyed at the dining table, visible through a wooden beamed wall beside the kitchen, a beautiful feature of the property.

The wooden beams of the walls and ceilings, combined with bare brick walls, add a sense of history to the property, a feature continued into the sitting room and snug, where there are two ornamental fireplaces.

The character and charm of this property is continued upstairs, into four lovely bedrooms with fantastic views of the local scenery, including two king-size beds, a family room with a king-size, a single, and a walk-in wardrobe, and a twin, alongside two contemporary bathrooms.

The garden has an enclosed area, as well as a more open lawn and offers a space to relax with a cup of tea or to dine alfresco and take in the scenery as your four-legged family member relaxes on the grass beside you.

Knill has a selection of walks through the countryside.

To stock up on amenities or to enjoy a family meal out, head over to the town of Presteigne, resting on the border between England and Wales and boasting a great number of eateries and independent shops.

Here you will also find walks along the River Lugg, including those at Withybeds.

Within an easy distance history lovers can visit the ruins of Wigmore Castle and Clun castle, taking a picnic to have in the grounds, or there is the option of many walks through the countryside at Mortimer Forest and see what wildlife you can spot.

Indulge in the picturesque scenery of Herefordshire with a stay at The Old Rectory.

About the location

PRESTEIGNE

Leominster 14 miles; Hay-on-Wye 19 miles; Ludlow 20 miles; Hereford 23 miles.

Nestling on the banks of the River Lugg, the ancient town of Presteigne lies on the border of England and Wales and has been voted one of the top 10 towns in Britain by Country Life magazine. The reason for this award is obvious as the town boasts an array of black and white timbered buildings, narrow cobbled streets, individual shops, tea rooms and traditional pubs as well as the award-winning Judges’ Lodgings, a Victorian museum complete with stunning judges’ apartments, servants’ quarters, courtroom and cells. The town plays hosts to music and arts festivals throughout the year as well as a monthly farmers’ market. Explore the Mortimer Trail, Offa’s Dyke, the lovely walks up to Wigmore Castle, Croft Ambrey and the quiet valleys of the Lugg, Teme and Clun. 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 is a variety of tourist attractions close by including the Kington Small Breed Farm Park and Owl Centre, the pretty blooms at the Hergest Croft Gardens and Radnor Hill, which boasts England’s highest golf course. Ludlow, with a magnificent castle, over 500 listed buildings and stunning medieval street pattern, provides a fascinating backdrop for the town’s regular street markets, showcasing a range of goods - from cheeses and fresh produce to books and local crafts. Take a day trip to the town of books, Hay-on-Wye, the pretty market town of Leominster or Hereford with its cathedral home to the Mappi Mundi world map.
