Great Quebb is part of a settlement of houses and barns which date back to the 15th Century. Parts of the house are still original, though much of it has been altered over the years to make it more comfortable. Ideal for touring North Herefordshire and the Welsh borders, by car, bike or on foot. There is entertainment locally for all ages and interests, and yet it is in a quiet area adjoining a dairy farm. Hay-on-Wye which has an annual literary festival is within easy reach and it is not far from the Royal Welsh Showground. Hereford's beautiful Cathedral is approximately 17 miles away.

About Celia Foote
I am married with four adult children. We run a Dairy farm in Hampshire with our two sons. My brother and I own the property together-he lives in the West end of the house-the East end is the let part.
Celia Foote purchased this House in 2010
Why Celia Foote chose Eardisley
We first saw Great Quebb when visiting my daughter in Herefordshire, she lives nearby with her Husband and children and we both liked the house and the area Having visited several times we liked the area more and more and decided to sell our house in Dorset to buy Great Quebb which we see has exciting possibilities. Although it is in a very rural location, it is not too far from many interesting places.
What makes this House unique
For us the convenience of being close to family is a benefit, but also it is a lovely place for country walks. It is close to Kington,where there is a Co-op where you can buy most things and it also has an unusual array of small shops including 2 butchers and a pharmacy. There is a farm shop nearby in the Pub in Almeley as well as a village shop, good pub and cafe in Eardisley.

New Years Eve celebration
The house is incredible! We had anticipated a freezing little cottage in the middle of the winter but were pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the house. The house was warm and relaxing in front of the log burner was lovely. Our host welcomed us when we arrived and after showing us around, left us to enjoy our stay. The location was perfect, nestled between a few farm cottages and surrounded by gorgeously peaceful countryside. If you're looking for a quiet retreat, this is ideal! Couldn't have asked for anything more.
Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your New Year’s break and hope you will come back again.
Not What It Seemed...
When is a quiet stay in the country , not a quiet stay in the country ! .When it is here....What appears to be a detached country cottage is infact a terraced house in so much as it is occupied on either side.Wafer thin walls with noise eminating from both sides was upsetting for myself inparticular as I had booked the property on behalf of our party and felt I had let the side down.
Pan to the right of the property out of sight of this wide angle front shot and a building site is in progress. "No mention of that in the description". Heavy machinery and hammering from 8.00am including the Sunday We were there meant we were glad to leave...
The only place I have stayed in many years where we felt deceived by the photo's and description of a property.
Fabulous Bank Holiday Weekend in Eardisley
We had a truly wonderful stay at Great Quebb. The property fitted our requirements perfectly and was a great base for visiting family in the area.
The farmhouse is full of character - exposed beams and old staircase.
The house was very clean and comfortable - also deliciously warm over a cold weekend. Three large bedrooms and a large living room meant that 6 adults had plenty of space. We were given a very warm welcome by our host and would not hesitate booking up again if we are in that area.
Beautiful warm cosy farmhouse perfect for Christmas
We had a wonderful stay over Christmas. The farmhouse was very warm and cosy, it had everything we needed and more. Would definitely visit again. It was very homely and welcoming, even had decorations. The children loved it and we all had a lovely Christmas.
Charming, comfortable and clean
Lovely property in a good location. Perfect for exploring or just relaxing by the fire...
