The Details...

With the majestic Brecon Beacons in one direction, literary Hay on Wye in another and Leominster within 30 minutes, plus a really decent couple of country pubs within cycling distance and stunning views from the warmth of the house, there is something for every member of your group.

As you step inside, you quickly feel at home. Log baskets by the fire, lanterns for a summer evening stacked in the porch and a bookcase of holiday reads are waiting to welcome you. Step through into the sitting room, pop on a tune via the sound system and enjoy the heat of the wood burning stove as you sink into the comfy sofas to relax.

There is another drawing room on the next floor up, with great views across the hills, an additional wood burning stove and stacks of books, magazines, a chess board, as well as TV and DVD to enjoy.

There is a farmhouse style kitchen which is well equipped with a three oven Aga and everything you might need for en-mass catering. Fancy being catered to then there are recommendations for caterers, if you prefer someone else to rustle up your supper. The dining room is wonderfully atmospheric, perfect for dinner parties, or step outside onto the terrace, with garden furniture on a sublime summers evening.

The seven main bedrooms, plus a large loft bedroom, are all beautifully presented, sleeping 16 people in great comfort. Each bedroom has been beautifully decorated and is warm and inviting. The master bedroom has a stunning antique four poster bed. The bathrooms are top notch, modern with every bathing comfort considered from power showered wet rooms to relaxing baths, and all towels and bedding included.

Offa's Dyke, the natural border between England and Wales runs right past the door...breakfast in Wales, lunch in England! There is superb walking along the marked trail and numerous local hills to walk, climb or pedal...simply take your pick - local guide books are available in the house.

Croft Castle is worth a trip - 1500 acres of woodland and parkland, so it's worth bringing a picnic. The castle hosts a number of events throughout the year - check out what's on during your stay. Berrington Hall is another National Trust Treasure within easy reach and is home to one of 'Capability' Brown's final landscapes.
