    “A real " Escape to the Country !”

    " Picturesque and tranquil location and close to excellent village amenities. The property was spacious, most comfortable and very well equipped. A warm welcome from Ed and fresh eggs left in the kitchen. I much enjoyed my long weekend here.

About the location

KINGSLAND

Leominster 4.5 miles; Ludow 13 miles; Hereford 16.5 miles.

The ancient village of Kingsland boasts two good pubs - the welcoming Angel pub and The Corners Inn, both serving hearty pub fare and local ales, perfect for when you don’t fancy cooking! – Kingsland also houses a Post Office and a village store.

Another great dining spot is The Riverside at Aymestrey, winner of Great British Pub Awards 'Best Sustainable Pub 2022' and ‘Herefordshire’s Best Restaurant 2021’.

Many fun, group and family-friendly activities can be enjoyed in the area including a high wire rope course, paintball, quad trekking and raft building, all of which are available at the local Oaker Wood activity centre.

Within a short drive you will find the esteemed National Trust sites of Croft Castle, a castellated 17th-century manor house where you can tour both the interior and grounds or why not visit Capability Brown’s final complete estate (which includes a serpentine pool) at Berrington Hall, a stunning neoclassical 18th-century mansion designed by Henry Holland. Further afield the Judge's Lodgings in Presteigne, Stokesay Castle, the renowned Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm are also all well worth a visit.

The thriving village of Yarpole, equidistant between the pretty market towns of Ludlow and Leominster, and mentioned in the “Domesday Book”, boasts an award-winning community shop - the first full time shop in a church - along with a traditional country pub and a Post Office. Just a short walk from the village is Bircher Common, an area of lowland heath offering lovely views of the surrounding Marches, ideal for enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the area. Close by, enjoy an afternoon visit to the Monkland Cheese Dairy, a working dairy producing and selling local, artisan cheeses, as well as offering a well-stocked shop and café.

Next stop is Leominster, where you can delve into history at the Leominster Museum, browse the many antique shops or attend the annual Leominster Festival (May-June). Dating back to the 7th century the town is home to some magnificent examples of architecture, including the Priory Church, along with a wide variety of shops, cafes, and pubs – it’s an ideal place to spend an afternoon.

For a super day out (or two!) why not visit historic Ludlow, home to one of the finest medieval castle ruins in England and more than 500 listed buildings, wander down to the River Teme or visit Whitcliffe Common Nature Reserve or the weekly Ludlow Market. Annual Food (September) and Fringe (June-July) Festivals are also very popular highlights. Within easy reach are Ironbridge (one of the first UK locations to be designated a World Heritage Site) and Hay-on-Wye (world-renowned for its bookshops).

For even more things to do and see venture onto Hereford, here you’ll find the Black and White Museum (built in 1621) and the golden-stone Hereford Cathedral - home to the Mappa Mundi (Hereford's famous medieval map used by scholars to interpret the world over 700 years ago) and the captivating, chained library (a collection of rare and ancient books). Set in the former Bulmers Cider Factory the Museum of Cider is also worth a visit.

Browse a blend of high street and independent shops, the latter clustered along Church Street and explore the Old Market, transformed into an open-air destination for shopping and dining. For theatre and comedy head to The Courtyard for a great evening’s live entertainment.
