About Cwmmau FarmhouseDeep in the countryside, this historic farmhouse has wood-panelled walls and elegant period furnishings.
Standing alone in all its grandeur, amid the rolling Herefordshire countryside, is this striking timber farmhouse. Step back in time, where original oak beams, elm floors and wood-panelled walls meet elegant period furnishings. Perfect for those special get-togethers, it has five spacious bedrooms, some of which have four-poster beds.
The farmhouse is only open to the public one week a year, so you’ll have this historic gem to yourself. There’s a large lawned garden to the rear of the property and wild-flower fields in the adjoining meadow. As the house is set deep in the countryside, you’ll have miles of walks and on your doorstep.
The village of Kington is a short five mile drive away, while Hay-On-Wye is only 8 miles away from the holiday cottage. Famous for its literature festival, the town is home to many bookshops. It also sits on the outskirts of the Brecon Beacons, so it’s a good place to stop before hiking through the mountains.
