Beautiful Barn in Lea Bailey, a peaceful rural hamlet nr Ross On Wye.
About William Wilding
Hooks Barn is owned by a Potter and a Comedian – Joan and William. We both went to art school, Joan studied ceramics, and William studied performance art before spending 25 years as a comedian. Joan now teaches pottery and William paints and mows the lawn ( NB;- not at the same time). We spent 3 years converting Hooks Barn into a beautiful holiday home. Although a builder did the roof, with electricians and plumbers drinking endless cups of tea, the hard graft was done by us. Hooks Barn is attached to the far end of Hooks Cottage, which is our home. But your privacy is paramount and we will not bother you unless you request something.
William Wilding purchased this Barn in 1980
Why William Wilding chose Weston under Penyard
Brilliant location. There are forest walks right out the door, so if you arrive with supplies its possible to park the car, and not use it again. On the other hand there are also plenty of things to do within a short car ride.
What makes this Barn unique
We live next door. So we are here to welcome you and show you around. Your private area in our garden has a great view of the countryside, and is a great place to watch the sun go down.

A cottage to dream about!
The cottage was as advertised, fully equipped, nothing lacking very homely. A warm welcome from William who provided a brochure full of useful information. Also a nice touch of cider and chocolate to welcome us.
peace and views
The property is very comfortable and ideally situated to explore the Forest of Dean, Wye Valley and some of Wales...
the garden has three levels all with an air of peace and views across stunning valley
Bed comfortable and all facilities for self catering success - but close enough for take-aways and restaurants

Wonderful. Quite. Bright. PERFECT!
Lovely quiet place for a relaxing getaway
The barn is located in beautiful countryside. It is well kept and clean. We particularly appreciated the walk information and did the Joyce's walk, which took us through some wonderful and varied countryside. The main reason we were going away was to rest & relax and we were definitely able to do that here.
