Overview

About the property

One double bedroom and separate bathroom. Sleeps two. Parking for two cars.

Little Owls Barn is a single storey converted barn nestled among apple orchards in the heart of beautiful Herefordshire countryside. Completed to a high standard, the cottage opens on to a bright kitchen/dining room with exposed roof trusses, modern amenities and a sofa for two. A cosy sitting room can be found further down the corridor with comfortable seating and views out to the Black Mountains in the distance. The cottage is completed with a high quality bathroom and a spacious bedroom featuring a 5' King-size bed.

Situated on a quiet country lane and set a short distance away from the owners' farmhouse, guests have access to walk throughout over 100 acres of farmland including 50 acres of apple and pear orchards. The colours of the orchards change throughout the seasons and in autumn witness the farm's apple harvest and small scale pressing to make juice, other fruit picking and extraction of honey from the hives. There is an abundance of birds and wildlife in the area allowing you to enjoy the dawn chorus and late evening hoots of various owls. A convenient shed for bicycle storage adjoins the property making the cottage perfect for cycling holidays.

Preston Wynne is a quiet village eight miles north of Hereford. Five minutes' drive from the village are two small local shops supplying newspapers and basic necessities, while travelling a little further afield will bring you to all the main shops and supermarkets you need on the outskirts of Hereford city. Herefordshire is renowned for its cider and perry production, which is evident in the many nearby restaurant and pub menus. There is a traditional pub serving real ales and ciders (but no food) just two miles away and a number of excellent pubs within 20 minutes by car.
