The Barn at Titley, graded 5 star by Visit England standards, is a stunning Grade 2 listed modern barn conversion with beautiful oak and slate floors and an abundance of ancient oak beams. Situated in a pretty village with Michelin star gastro-pub and a nature reserve, it provides a great base for Hay-on-Wye, Ludlow and Hereford . Stylishly furnished in boutique-hotel style it blends both the traditional and the contemporary and provides a relaxing base for those seeking a tranquil setting for their holiday. It is ideally based for Hay-on-Wye, Ludlow, Hereford, the lovely Wye Valley and the Brecon Beacons. FREE Wifi and Welcome pack are provided.
The open-plan living area has a dramatic vaulted ceiling with gallery overlooking it. The sofa is Làura Ashley with lamps by Oka. The bespoke sycamore kitchen is very well equipped with professional pans, food processors and blenders for your holiday smoothies and we have cookery books to browse. Overlooking the courtyard you will see the house martins and other birds flit around the barns as you cook.
Both bedrooms have four-poster beds - traditional and contemporary - and crisp white linen and proper pillows! Underfloor heating and goose down duvets mean you will be cosy in the cooler months. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom lined with travertine tiles. The second room has a wet room with a great power shower.
There are two seating areas - our private garden to the front of the house with a patio and lawned area. This overlooks open fields and hills. There is seating for 4. To the rear is the communal courtyard, with table and chairs for 4, which is a sun-trap and perfect for breakfasts outdoors. You can sit here on a warm day and listen to the gentle creaking of the barns.
There is a hidden gem of a nature reserve with glacial pools just down the lane where you can walk or picnic in the meadows (we provide the picnic basket and rug) full of wild-flowers or watch the rich bird-life from the hide overlooking the lake. The Stagg with its Michelin guide restaurant (Dining Pub 2018 in Good Pub Guide and 15 years of Michelin stars ) is just around the corner so you can be assured of an excellent meal - or you can just call in for a drink and chat with the locals. Be sure to book as it is very popular!
The barn is our own holiday home and furnished and equipped to a high standard and we hope our guests will appreciate all the little touches we have made to ensure a very comfortable holiday.
