The Details...

The delightfully named Blackbird Barn sits in the pretty hamlet of Llanwarne in glorious rural Herefordshire. And if the barns style is anything to go by, it looks to be a very relaxing stay indeed. Creative interiors simply ooze style and comfort - from the cosy wood burning stove to the beautifully bespoke kitchen. Rustic-chic it most certainly is but dont think the owners have held back on luxury. With underfloor heating, a beautiful roll top bath and a Bang and Olufsen sound system, youre certainly privy to some serious five star treatment.

The open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area is breathtaking. With a vaulted ceiling taking centre stage, youll be won over as soon as you step through the door. The kitchen is a rustic-styling masterpiece - with a wooden butcher's block at its heart. The apple-crate storage is bursting with stylish crockery, retro glassware and inspirational cook books. And with a large fridge-freezer and five-ring gas cooker you have everything you need to release your inner culinary artist. Although if youd rather not cook, then theres a great selection of meals in the freezer - just leave the money on the table when you leave. Perfect.

The large dining table with its fabulous reclaimed chairs is perfectly placed overlooking the patio doors - the ideal spot for your morning coffee as you contemplate the day.

The lounge is a cosy affair with a comfortable sofa, bright textiles and a lovely selection of colourful ceramics. Theres also a record player, flat screen television and a handsome wood burning stove (complete with baskets overflowing with an unlimited supply of wood). Perfect for those cosy nights in.

Head past the gallery of artwork up the stairs to the romantic mezzanine bedroom. With beautiful beams overhead - its a delightful space to relax in. The king size bed, feather duvet and gorgeously vibrant woollen cushions and cosy blanket ensure a great nights sleep. And the selection of books, magazines and fluffy robes show how the owners take pleasure in providing those little deluxe extras.

Downstairs, the bathroom is as luxurious as it is eccentric. With a lavish roll top bath, walk-in shower and luxury toiletries there is all you would expect of this spectacular property. And the artistic display of reclaimed carpentry tools festooned with colourful birds adds an unexpected but rather fabulous focal point!

Outside there is a paved courtyard with a repurposed carpenters bench table and chairs - add to that a BBQ and youve got a great place to see out a long summers evening in style. And as the stars come out, the lack of street lighting makes it a great place to do some star gazing.

The barn is fabulously located on the Welsh border, which means you get the best of both worlds. Choose from rural ambles directly from your door. Or head out to the market towns of Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye - both of which are about 20 minutes away. And the creative centre of Hay-on-Wye with its array of bookshops, antiques and vibrant cafes is just 45 minutes up the road.
