This grand Georgian house, complete with heronry and point-to-point course, stands on a motte and bailey site. The Welsh Borders setting is beautiful and the gardens slope peacefully down to the millstream, meadows and river. Breakfasts are local and delicious, convivial dinners are preceded by drinks in the drawing room; Yvonne’s cooking is upmarket and creative, Hayden’s wine list is a treat. Retire to large bedrooms with huge beds made to perfection (proper blankets, lovely linen). Wander, admiring the roses and azaleas; join the Hereford Way from the farm; visit abundant castles and gardens. Ludlow is a ten-minute drive.
