This delightful Coach House has been beautifully furnished to a very high standard, with a Victorian theme.The sumptuous bedroom is on the ground floor and the living space and kitchen is on the 1st floor which takes full advantage of the spectacular valley views. It is located in a very scenic part of Wales with rolling wooded hillsides and narrow tracked roads, with plentiful footpaths/bridleways and is close to Offa's Dyke, which you can access straight from the door. The Coach House was impeccably clean and thoughtfully equipped and our hosts generously provided a bottle of Champagne on our arrival. Thank you John and Paul for a wonderful stay.
We fell in love with Vicarage Cottage and couldn't have asked for a better holiday. It was so beautiful and romantic, that after full days of exploring, shopping and sightseeing, we found we were eager to get back to the lovely cottage, to relax and enjoy a cosy fire each evening. We miss it but are so glad to have made precious memories of our stay there. Thank you, Marie and Stuart Bright
Well what a wonderful get away break, the Coach House is perfect, wonderful views and delightful accommodation. The Coach House is beautifully decorated and is a perfect place to stay. The balcony provides the most beautiful views feeling like you are sitting in the gods watching the wildlife, the most stressful thing is spotting the Goldfinches and monitoring the sheep activity. Our stay let us refresh ourselves from a busy home life allowing us to completely relax and unwind. The local facilities provide everything you could ask for, the local shops and high street provide fine dining and a fabulous deli with lots of treats. Nice pubs where the locals are very friendly, it is a perfect retreat. Not our first time of staying and definitely not our last. Highly recommended, although regret having to share such a wonderful secret!
The Coach House was everything we could have wished for. The location is fabulous with views over the countryside - and such peace and quiet. The garden was a real treat and a pleasure to walk around. The interior of the Coach House is decorated with impeccable taste and attention to every detail in keeping with the Victorian vicarage. It was also spotlessly clean and had an extremely comfortable bed. A very relaxing holiday and a great way to unwind before returning to everyday life refreshed.

The 2 separate properties, The Old Vicarage Coach House and Vicarage Cottage, are perched on a hill with stunning views across delightful walking country, situated half way between Ludlow and Hay on Wye, where the borders of Herefordshire, Shropshire and Powys meet. Nearby Presteigne, a delightful borders town nestling on the River Lugg, boasts the award winning Judge's Lodging Museum. With fine walks from the front door, both properties are close to some of the best preserved and most beautiful stretches of the Offa's Dyke Path National Trail. The cathedral city of Hereford, Croft Castle & Berrington Hall (both National Trust properties), the Wye Valley, Brecon Beacons, the Cambrian Mountains and the spectacular Victorian dams in the Elan Valley are all a scenic drive away. There is a delightful wine bar in Presteigne and a Michelin starred pub 10 minutes drive away.
