We make our own cider and apple juice and have various livestock for children to enjoy. We welcome you with complimentary apple juice from our small-holding and home-made organic bread. The cottage has a double bed and bunks. The kitchen is fully equipped with hob, oven, fridge freezer, microwave and plenty of crockery and cooking equipment. The dining area seats four, and is also a lap-top friendly space (with fast, free wifi). The sitting area has two double sofas, TV, DVD player and coffee table. Outside there is a South-facing patio with table and chairs, reclining chairs and a fire bowl. Come and relax in the Wye Valley.More
