  • A rustic barn with a contemporary twist - it has a private courtyard, perfect for two and set within a peaceful Herefordshire hamlet

Property code: 78475

Peacefully tucked away within the pretty Herefordshire hamlet of Llanwarne, this rustic barn is a perfect hideaway for two. Cleverly finished with an interesting collection of artworks, rustic homewares and salvage yard treasures.

This stunning property, located 9 miles from cathedral city Hereford, is an ideal romantic retreat for couples – not leaving Fido behind, of course! Sleeping two humans in a fantastic king-size bed and with plenty of space for the hound to stretch out, this brilliant barn conversion is an opportunity to relax and unwind with your beau while still being close enough to walks and visitor attractions. Climb Garway Hill (6 miles) where you can enjoy views across five counties on a clear day or go antique hunting in Ross-on-Wye (8.5 miles) where there are lots of dog-friendly shops, cafes and pubs.

The holiday home, which is located near to another of the owner’s properties, is bright and airy with an open-plan style. Reclaimed wood shelves line the walls with interesting trinkets and crockery, with unlikely objects used perfectly as furniture. Snuggle up in front of the wood burner, the pup by your feet, and watch the light change through the various skylights and windows that surround the property. Soak in the deep claw-foot bath before bed to unwind. Up on the mezzanine level, a luxurious bedroom awaits you; slip between the sheets surrounded by exposed beams and vaulted ceilings.

Take a wander around Haugh Wood (15 miles), where there are lots of walking trails to explore, including two butterfly trails. Dogs go free on the boat rides with Kingfisher River Cruises (10 miles), which wind their way through Symonds Yat on a quiet ride. A peaceful riverside walk begins from Tintern Old Station (23 miles), while over in Wales you can enjoy the historical industrial landscape of Blaenavon from the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway (28 miles). And if you’re a wine lover, book a tour around the owner’s vineyard where you might even get a taste.

Lovely peaceful location, well positioned for visiting all the major towns in the surrounding area. Well equipped and uniquely furnished accommodation. Very comfortable bed. Would need to reach pubs/shops by car. Overall a very relaxing place to stay.

Great location. In our opinion not luxury as advertised. Steep stairs in property & the upper garden access dangerous (no rail) despite disclaimer in booklet - after a long days walking(tired legs) didnt use upper garden area due to narrow stoney path, and not a nice ambiance - pots overgrown, no flowers, loose stones by the access steps. Quirky raRead morenge of equipment not our taste, more flea market than Luxury. Didnt want to store my cloths in old crates so lived out of case on lounge floor. Hide

Loved our stay at this beautiful barn - clawfoot bath, nespresso machine, big tv, underfloor heating, comfy bed: all combined to make us feel cosy and treated.

The barn is very unique and quirky and the owner is lovely. Very peaceful and a good central location. Great local pubs with excellent food. We enjoyed our stay but found the look of the barn was given more focus than the practicality and comfort especially with the lighting and the sofa. Overall a lovely place.

The Blackbird Barn is absolutely gorgeous! Whilst we were there it rained the entire time but it didn't matter because we had everything we needed at the barn. We had such a relaxing time.

As described, the barn was quirky but certainly not luxury as described on the website. Very few facilities with no dishwasher or microwave to make life easier on holiday. Lovely comfy bed, but the bedroom itself a bit of a challenge. Very nice bath/shower room. This is the ideal spot for getting away from it all with beautiful countryside and lotsRead more of eating places a short drive away. Hide

It is a wonderful location to relax from working from home lockdown for many months. Outside space is just as required, great for reading and listening to birdsong.
