    “We had a wonderful stay - there was a warm welcome from the owners with a basket of homemade goodies, the location is lovely (I don’t think I’ve ever heard so many birds singing in the mornings) and the property was cosy and clean.”

The property

The Folly is a “small but perfectly formed” property that will allow you to relax in the quiet of the Herefordshire countryside or go exploring to see some of the unspoilt towns and sites of the Marches.

The Folly was built simply as a decorative feature to an ornate garden and is now approached by a short walk through a developing woodland, but the property has now been renovated with much thought being given to making the most of the available space, having been compared to a perfect doll's house!

The upgrade includes a mini kitchen, with a combi microwave and induction hob, a relaxing settee, also a TV, DVD player and WiFi.

When you walk in, it does not feel at small because of the large gothic shaped door and windows, and you will find a narrow spiral staircase to the bedroom where there is a comfortable bed and separate WC and shower, and though features and furniture are small, everything is interesting, unusual and finished to a very high standard.

Outside is a large patio, planted with all edible plants, a table, chairs, BBQ and a large summer house, originally built to compliment the Folly, which are all available for guests.

The Folly is within the grounds of Arrow Cottage yet is completely separate and private, being situated on a very quiet lane, the surroundings of fields, orchards and wooded hills makes this a beautiful quiet place to unwind.

If you enjoy walking, a 30 minute walk takes you into the picturesque village of Weobley, the “Jewel in the Crown” of the black and white villages where you can visit the pub the Salutation or enjoy a coffee or lunch at Green Bean or Jules.

More energetic walks include the Offa's Dyke footpath, the Wye Valley footpath and the Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) are all close by, you’ll also be just 15 minutes from the River Wye which offers fishing and canoeing.

For shopping there are the historic towns of Ledbury and Ludlow, both of which boast architecturally interesting buildings, including Ludlow Castle, and also many independent shops.

In Hereford you will find the usual mainstream shops and also Hereford Cathedral which houses the Mappa Mundi.

About 20 minutes drive away is the world famous town of Hay on Wye which hosts the annual literary festival as well as the greatest number of bookshops you are ever likely to find in one town.

Also, within a short drive are many gardens including Stockton Bury which has just been shortlisted as one of the top NGS gardens in the country, and The National Trust properties of Berrington Court and Brockhampton, are a short drive away.

All in all the Folly is a relaxing and unusual property from which to explore the rural tranquillity of Herefordshire.
