    “A lovely holiday home with all the facilities we wanted.”

    Ideal for our break with a number of small children. We used and enjoyed the outside garden space as well as the indoor spaces. Internet access was not good but you might not be able to improve this. The hot tub was over chlorinated and we didn't feel we wanted to be exposed to that. Some plastic plates, bowls and cups for young children would be useful. Kerry the manager was helpful and prompt in providing bedding when requested. Thank you

Encompassed by beautiful views, whilst boasting five bedrooms with stylish en-suites, a woodburning stove, beamed ceilings, various areas to relax from, and an annexe with hot tub, the cottage is ideal for a family break, welcoming ten guests and one well-behaved dog.

Both the interior and exterior of Henhouse Farm are generously-sized, providing an wealth of living and sleeping space for your entire party, displaying traditional features including exposed stone walls and oak beams, whilst mixing in contemporary appliances and fixtures.

Preparing meals, formal dining, film nights, relaxing evenings in front of the woodburning stove, and sun-filled days will all be possible from your new home-from home.

Offering peace and quiet, the annexe is the perfect place to retreat to, whilst acting as the ideal social hub for soaks in the hot tub, and drying off, before venturing to bed.

If you can tear yourself away from Henhouse Farm, enjoy visits to England’s Gate Inn for a glass of wine, stock up on the essentials at a nearby Londis, or perhaps opt for a leisurely stroll around Bodenham Lake?

Offering breath-taking gardens and backdrops to appreciate, visits to Queenswood Country Park, and Hampton Court Castle are recommended.

By car, venture further afield for historical activities, with the chance to tour Waterworks Museum - Hereford, learn about Hereford Cider Museum Trust and its archives, or head to Black and White House Museum, home to a gallery of art and local memorabilia.

River Lugg is also a hidden gem, worth a tour on a sunny day, walks throughout the grounds of Berrington Hall are also recommended, whilst Leominster Museum is a stone throw away, highlighting a timeline from pre-Roman times to present.
