Country House 4 1 1
About Our Home
Our little house is in the beautiful Golden Valley on the Welsh boarders with views toward the black mountains. The garden is surrounded by fields and trees with a little stream at the bottom of the hill. There are country walks in all directions straight out of the house, with longer hikes in the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons a short drive away. We are about a half hour drive from the cathedral city of Hereford in one direction and Hay on Wye (famous for it's book shops and literary festival) in the other. Hay is small but bursting with things to do, from canoeing to art courses. We are well away from busy roads, street lights etc, making this a perfect place for a peaceful retreat or detox break. However, we are not completely isolated. We have some very friendly neighbours and most things can be delivered to the door, including a local organic veg box. The house is simple but cosy. We have a wood fired Rayburn stove in the kitchen that heats the radiators and water and provides constant heat for cooking. Raw fooders will enjoy the use of quality juicer, blender, dehydrator and water filter. One of the bedrooms is used as an office/studio. There is phone and internet access, although the internet is slow. We don't use wifi and there are no other wifi signals that reach the house. There is absolutely no mobile signal. The nearest signal is about a 10 minute walk away. We don't have a TV. There is a sound system, projector for movies and musical instruments. There is a washing machine and a bath with shower.
Special Considerations
Non smokers only please. We have a cat who may or may not come with us. If she stays home, she'll need fed and loved. There are plants that need watering.
There is a great Indian in Hay called Spice, Yaks and Yetis in Ross and Thai on Wye in Hereford
