Located in the picturesque Black Mountains, Hillside Farmhouse offers a serene getaway with a touch of historic charm. Dating back to the 17th century, this farmhouse's authentic decor, cozy wood burners, and traditional flagstone floors, all add to its timeless appeal.

As you step through the sturdy oak front door, you will immediately feel the warmth of its history. The inviting dining room welcomes you with its statement red brick fireplace and a grand oak table, beckoning for convivial evenings. Adjacent lies the spacious living room, where oak beams frame expansive views and a crackling log burner invites you to unwind on comfortable sofas while enjoying a movie.

Down the hallway, a snug awaits, offering peace and quiet or spirited board game battles by the comforting glow of the fire. The heart of the home, an open-plan kitchen diner, boasts modern amenities within a rustic setting, complete with a Belling range cooker, Nespresso coffee machine, and a sunlit oak-framed sunroom where mornings are best spent basking in golden rays.

Upstairs there are four enchanting bedrooms, each exuding its own unique charm. The master suite, adorned with a king-size bed and en-suite shower room, offers a sanctuary of serenity, while two additional king-size rooms and a twin bedroom ensure restful nights for all. A family bathroom, adorned with indulgent amenities, completes the upper level, ensuring ultimate comfort for guests.

Outside, the patio doors lead to an oak-framed pavilion, perfect for al fresco dining or serene moments with a cup of steaming brew. The gardens, adorned with a tranquil fishpond and fragrant lavender-lined paths, provide a picturesque backdrop for leisurely strolls or tranquil contemplation. However, it is the captivating oak-framed gazebo that steals the spotlight, offering panoramic vistas of the rugged Black Mountains.

For those inclined to explore, meandering pathways lead to Hatterrall Hill, where breathtaking mountain panoramas await, while a leisurely ramble to the nearby hamlet of Clodock promises quaint charm and conviviality at the traditional village pub.

Whether seeking seclusion amidst nature or exploration around the nearby quaint market towns, Hillside Farmhouse offers an enchanting haven, promising an unforgettable retreat in the heart of the Welsh countryside.

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in Herefordshire

Welcome to Herefordshire, a cool county in the heart of England, where rolling hills sit alongside verdant meadows and charming market towns throw the best countryside parties. This place is famous for its agricultural awesomeness, its stunning landmarks, its pretty valleys and rivers and its cider. When you decide to level up your holiday game with a luxury Oliver’s Travels property, Herefordshire unveils its iconic attractions, areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and its gorgeous towns and villages.

Hereford Cathedral, the star of medieval architecture, boasts an intricate Gothic facade while the world-famous Mappa Mundi and the Chained Library, make book and map enthusiasts smile widely. Hereford, the county town, is not just home to the Cathedral, it enjoys the Old House and High Town with the River Wye adding a fabulous backdrop. Hereford's market is the place to be, a buzzing hive of local produce and crafts where you can shop till you drop.

Nature enthusiasts adore the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a playground for river meandering, woodland exploring and Instagram-worthy landscapes. Symonds Yat Rock is the top spot for panoramic views that will make your jaw drop. This area is a walking, cycling and horse riding paradise. The Mortimer Trail takes you on a scenic journey through woodlands and the Herefordshire Trail is like a magical mystery tour through landscapes that make other counties jealous.

Market towns come with their own quirky charm. Ross-on-Wye, with its hill-perched awesomeness overlooking the River Wye, is all about timber-framed buildings and views while Leominster brings the medieval market square vibe, where you can shop for antiques. The Black and White Village Trail is like a treasure hunt for half-timbered houses. Weobley and Pembridge sit on the trail, showcasing Herefordshire's architectural game. Ledbury adds an Elizabethan masterpiece, Eastnor Castle, to the mix, surrounded by lush grounds and a deer park where you might enjoy one of its many events. Bromyard is gorgeous with independent shops and a market that is a social event. Hay-on-Wye is the "Town of Books," where bookshops are sprinkled throughout the town and the Hay Festival draws writers and readers from all over.

Herefordshire is the cider capital and you have not truly lived until you have toured an orchard, sampled local brews and gained insights into the ancient art of cider making. Herefordshire is not just a place, it is an experience. Rich history, stunning landscapes and communities that are so welcoming. Whether you are into medieval landmarks, outdoor adventures, shopping or just soaking in the countryside's tranquility, Herefordshire is waiting to captivate your soul.

Owner Profile

Owner
Sophia

How long have you owned the property?
The farmhouse is our former family home of over 20 years. My parents first brought the property in 2001, from the moment they first saw it they immediately fell in love with the unique mountain views, and the proximity to the beautifully rugged Brecon Beacons that lie behind.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
I was lucky enough to grow up in this wonderful home and spend over 20 years there, before we later moved to a barn conversion on the farm, offering others the chance to make happy memories in our family home.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The house is steeped in history and dates back to the 17th century, and maintains a number of original features including oak beams and traditional fireplaces.

Do you have a favourite room in the property?
My favourite room in the property has to be the spacious living room - it is wonderfully cosy in the cool winter months, where you can draw the curtains and relax in front of the fire and admire the traditional oak beams above, yet also perfect in the summer months when you can swing open the French doors and step out to the oak-framed pavilion and country garden - it really is the heart of the home.

For anyone coming to stay, is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do? There are a number of things to see and do in the surrounding area, with many locations offering untouched natural beauty. A 20 minute ramble through country lanes and over stiles leads to the small hamlet of Clodock, home to an unspoilt traditional pub of great character, the Cornewall Arms, full of traditional pub games including table skittles, quoits and darts. It really is the place that time forgot.
Really eat? Included in The Independent ‘The 50 Best Country Pubs’, the nearby 300 year old Carpenters Arms is well worth a visit for delicious home cooked food. The Crown at Pantygelli is another wonderful local pub, their chef-driven menu highlights seasonal ingredients in simple, handcrafted dishes. The Moody Cow is another firm favourite, whilst a little further afield (28 miles, 50 minute drive) than our other local recommendations, the Moody Cow is well-worth the travel time!
Really see? In my opinion, a visit to Herefordshire isn’t complete without a ramble up one of the many local hills, whilst seeming like a daunting task, the views from the top really are exceptional, it is well worth it - trust me! Hatterrall Hill boasts incredible views in all directions, but the Cat’s Back (Black Hill) is another popular local hill walk.

  • We really enjoyed spending Christmas there

    on 29/12/2023

    We spent a wonderful Christmas at Hillside Farmhouse. The farm house was the perfect size for 7 of us to spend Christmas, with so much space we could all be in separate reception rooms if we wanted. It was clean, cosy and extremely well equipped. A beautiful place and we really enjoyed spending Christmas there.

  • We had the best weekend

    on 10/12/2023

    We had the best weekend and stay here. I would heavily recommend this stay. If you are looking for an escape from our busy lives this is the place. Do nothing and relax and soak in the views and enjoy a home away from home. Our host was incredible and always responsive and helpful.

  • A beautiful and relaxing stay

    on 23/08/2023

    Our family had such a beautiful and relaxing stay at Hillside Farmhouse. It was the perfect end to our summer trip. The house was beautiful and extremely peaceful. I’d recommend this place to anyone looking to relax.

  • Another fantastic stay!

    on 13/08/2023

    Another fantastic stay! It was our second time staying and before we arrived we wondered if it could possibly be as amazing as we remembered. It absolutely was! The host is amazing, incredibly helpful and responsive. We felt at peace the moment we arrived and even tried to extend our stay as we didn’t want to leave! We’re already counting down the days until we can go back! Thanks so much!

  • What an amazing place

    on 20/07/2023

    What an amazing place. Fantastic house and garden in a wonderfully peaceful setting. We walked up to Offa's Dyke from the house, which was fantastic. The house was really well equipped, lots of large rooms and places to sit outdoors. We had a great stay!
