About the property

One circular bedroom with a bathroom. Sleeps two. Parking for two vehicles.

The Cider Mill offers delightful, ground floor accommodation within a charming, two storey Grade II listed building with original features of oak beams and exposed brickwork. The property, which dates back to the 16th century, was once part of a working cider and hop farm and now provides luxurious country living. Wildlife, walks and cycle routes surround the property with the Malvern Hills in the distance.

It is situated in the hamlet of Catley, a mile from the village of Bosbury, 5 miles from Ledbury and 16 miles from Hereford. Two local pubs are within a mile and a half - The Bell at Bosbury and The Oak at Staplow. Both serve local ales, excellent food and take-outs. The area is a perfect retreat for exploring the beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

The old town of Ledbury has traditional black and white buildings but within them are a very eclectic range of independent shops and restaurants.

For additional accommodation, please see The Hop Kiln, which occupies the first floor of the building.
