Property code: 86883

Enjoy relaxing under the stars in your own hot tub, surrounded by tranquil Herefordshire pastures and trees. A beautifully renovated barn set within the owner’s smallholding is simply perfect for couples.

Immerse yourselves in the natural beauty of Herefordshire and take your favourite furry friend with you to enjoy long country walks and relaxing evenings. Nestled in the countryside near Lucton, about 5 miles from the border with Wales, this one-bedroom cottage sleeps two guests and one delighted dog, possibly even a second by special arrangement. An exquisite former barn, it has been creatively converted to provide stylish accommodation, capturing picturesque views, and comes with a private courtyard area and hot tub.

Arrive at this special retreat and step inside with your faithful friend at your heel to discover an open-plan kitchen/diner still featuring original timberwork. Fill up Rover’s water bowl, dish up his dinner and pop any damp towels into the washer/dryer. Set about preparing a romantic meal for two, then enjoy it at the table. Climb the stairs to the first-floor lounge to while away the evening in front of the Smart TV, with Netflix, while your contented canine dreams about his adventurous day. When you are ready for bed too, make your way back downstairs to the king-size bedroom and shower room. Have breakfast out in the sunshine on summer days while Rover pads about nearby, then fire up your hot tub later. There is also parking for one car at the cottage.

Find all kinds of fabulous footpaths and walking routes in the area that will ensure Rover’s tail doesn’t stop wagging from start to finish. Visit the National Trust’s Croft Castle and Parkland, 2 miles from the cottage, where four-legged visitors can also explore the 1,500 acres of parkland and garden, and even take refreshment in the glazed section of the tearoom with you afterwards. Take Rover to Queenswood Country Park, 10.5 miles away, to wander by your side along footpaths and through the trees.

Lovely little cottage in a remote area. New, well equipped and host was very welcoming. Weather was a bit hit and miss but we managed a short spell in the jacuzzi which was very relaxing. Great walking trails on the doorstep, lovely views, horses in the surrounding fields but sadly no private garden area surrounding the cottage so our dog had to beRead more restrained while outside. The hosts have everything else covered, outdoor dog wash and doggy towels, welcome pack, washing line, robes and slippers. Hide

Beautiful converted holiday accommodation, stylish as well as practical. In the most perfect location especially if you have a dog as walks right from the accommodation instead of having to use car. Peaceful and idyllic well away from any roads.

We had a three night break and it really was a refreshing and relaxing break. The cottage is very well equipped, clean and welcoming. We made use of the hot tub after long rambling walks straight out from the cottage - we didn't move the car once. Lots of varied countryside to amble around in and the proximity to NT's Croft Castle is excellent. FivRead moree stars from us. Hide
