Located deep in the Herefordshire countryside this secluded cluster of beautifully renovated Victorian stables offer a luxury hideaway for a memorable house party. The buildings have all been lovingly transformed and they are an ideal weekend retreat for those looking to celebrate a special occasion. This unique property offers privacy and space, set within an acre of grounds and surrounded by an original walled garden and 700 acres of orchards and fields.

Inside the rooms resonate with the history of the property with high ceilings and steeply pitched roofs.  There are porcelain tiled corridors and polished brick and cobble floors and all the rooms are stylishly decorated. Although the setting feels historic, guests can relax with all usual modern comforts from wifi to DVDs.

There are eight bedrooms, all en-suite, some with mezzanine levels and stylish wet rooms, as well as three with kitchen facilities. For exclusive use the property can cater for parties of up to 22 people, with further cottages available close by, making it the perfect venue for a birthday party, hen party, family gathering or even an informal corporate group.

There are two fully-equipped kitchens at the venue – plenty of opportunity to prepare gourmet feasts and party food for family and friends, but caterers can be arranged.  There are four sitting rooms, plus a dining room which is light, bright and airy with high ceilings, so party guests can mingle easily within the same spaces. Relax in the cosy sitting rooms, watch a DVD in the mini cinema room or curl up in front of the fire.  You’ll feel totally at home.

During summer days guests can make full use of the outdoor heated swimming pool, open from May until September. The property also has a sauna and hot tub housed in an old potting shed, and for those with a little more energy there’s also badminton, table tennis and a new squash court on site. Nearby there are other activities available too including golf, mountain biking, riding, canoeing, shooting, and go-karting and for real explorers the Black Mountains are a short drive away.

Three hours’ drive from London and two hours from Oxford, Birmingham and Bristol, the venue is easy to reach for a wonderful country escape and the flexible accommodation and location make it a stunning choice for a great house party: private, full of character and with modern luxuries, it promises to offer a break away with family and friends to truly cherish.

We like:

  • the relaxed and informal feel
