Built around 1850, the beautifully restored cottage was once home to the head gardener of the Whittern Estate, simply charming and full of character, perfect for a family stay in Herefordshire.

With a large, private garden and acres of farmland to explore, this historic cottage will appeal to humans and canines alike. Set in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside this three-bedroom property is the perfect base for discovering the stunning landscapes of the English/Welsh border. Practice your doggy paddle in the shared pool, enjoy an organised tour of the owner’s fruit farm or find a page-turner in one of Hay-on-Wye’s famous bookshops.

 Once home to the Head Gardener, your traditional cottage offers charming accommodation, blending traditional features with eclectic touches. On cooler evenings light the wood burner and relax on the cushion covered sofas with your hound at your feet. Rustle up lunch in the well-equipped kitchen to enjoy in the light and airy dining room or eat alfresco in the pretty garden. After a long day exploring, rest your paws in one of the three bedrooms – one king-size, one double and a twin. Outside are large gardens where you can light the BBQ and relax in the evening sunshine.

 Tails will be wagging at the choice of marked paths available straight from your front door, leading through farmland and open countryside. Home to several walking festivals, the medieval town of Kington (3 miles) is a well-regarded ‘centre for walking’ offering trails to suit all ages and abilities. Enjoy spectacular views as you hike along ancient Offa’s Dyke, enjoy the colourful displays as you stroll the paths of Hergest Croft Gardens, or browse the art galleries and independent stores, before enjoying a tasty treat in one of the dog-friendly pubs or tearooms. Spend the day following the Heritage Trail at Weobley (8.5 miles), marvelling at the black and white timber frame buildings. Further afield, pack a picnic to enjoy in the grounds of Berrington Hall (15 miles) where you and your canine companion can roam through woodlands or ramble around the lake.

This is a brilliant cottage for a family holiday. The pool is really warm, well-maintained and not too deep (1.4m). Gardeners Cottage residents have access to it between 10 and 12 each day. Small problems were very quickly dealt with.
