Property Information

Llangain Farmhouse enjoys one of the most spectacular locations imaginable. Situated on a hill overlooking the Wye Valley, you can literally stand awe struck at this utterly magical view. With over 250 years of history this is a holiday home that comes highly recommended with traditional features throughout, including beams, thick walls and three woodburning stoves. The house has been restored using local craftsmen and materials (such as Herefordshire Oak) to create a one off property. The cottage can sleep up to 12 as there is an additional barn for an extra two people. We see this as a wonderful converted farmhouse with a location that is unparalled.

"We completely loved our stay"

"The reason we wanted a holiday here was to get away from the hectic world we live in; emails phone calls, staff bosses, all wanting a piece of you 24/7. We searched extensively online looking for the ideal place - and boy, we were not disappointed. As soon as we pulled up here we knew that we were going to love it."
Mr and Mrs H. 2015-09-25
"The cottage was cosy and had all the necessary things we needed."
