About Bridgefarm House

Bridgefarm House is in the beautiful Herefordshire village of Michaelchurch Escley, close to the Welsh border and the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Grade II listed farmhouse dates from the 1600s and sleeps up to 10 guests in four gorgeous bedrooms with plenty of character and original features. The award-winning Bridge Inn pub is only a short walk from the cottage for times when you want to treat yourself to a delicious meal cooked by someone else. The layout and location make this house ideal for families and friends.

The quiet village is popular with walkers and cyclists, which isn't surprising when you consider the surrounding landscape. Wake every morning to the blissful sight of the Black Mountains and the Herefordshire hills which are a haven for birds and wildlife. You won't be able to wait to explore, whether it be up a mountain, beside a river or in one of the region's charming towns. Hay-on-Wye is 9-miles away with an impressive selection of specialist book shops, superb cafes, delis and boutiques, as well as a weekly market that runs every Thursday morning. Hereford sits on the River Wye and is another great choice for shopping, sightseeing and eating. Don't miss a visit to the cathedral which houses the ancient Mappa Mundi as well as one of the oldest chained libraries in Europe. Other choices for a day out include the vibrant market town of Abergavenny (market days are Tuesday and Saturday, with a flea market on Wednesday). Ledbury's black and white timber Tudor buildings are some of the best-preserved in England, while those who appreciate that period of architecture can follow the Black and White Trail. If a cider trail is more to your taste, then Herefordshire has that covered as well!

Historians will delight in the number of castles scattered along the Welsh border, their elevated locations once used for spotting enemies now provide the perfect picnic spot with panoramic views. The Three Castles walk is an excellent route for keen walkers in any season. The 19-mile route passes Grosmont, Skenfrith and White Castles, or stay closer to home and on the beautiful three-mile Cat's Back walk, stretching it by another three miles if you continue onto Hay Bluff. The scenery around here will take your breath away whether you walk, cycle, climb or drive through it. Alternatively, give your legs a rest by taking it easy along the pretty circular walk from Bridgefarm House along Escley Brook from where you can admire Cat's Back and Hay Bluff without having to scale them.

The owners of Bridgefarm House have two spacious yurts that are ideal for couples or families with one or two young children. These can be booked separately or together with the farmhouse to accommodate bigger groups of friends or extended families. Please see the owner's website for information.

Accommodation Comprises:

Bridgefarm House is a beautiful Grade II listed cottage with period features and accommodation over two levels.


  • Nowhere is the cottage's pedigree more evident than in the sitting room, at the heart of which is a fireplace with a big log burner surrounded by two three seater sofas and two comfortable armchairs and window seating for four. With its exposed beams and flagstone floor, you can sense the history of the house. Settle down with a glass of wine and a good book, play a game of chess, or simply sit and watch the flames as they flicker over the logs.
  • Off the sitting room is a TV/DVD/play room.
  • Meals with family and friends are a delight in this lovely kitchen/diner which has a proper farmhouse kitchen with an Aga (for winter months only) and cooker for other times and those who prefer more conventional cooking. There is plenty of space to prepare food and the cupboards are well-stocked with the utensils and equipment you'll need.
  • Spacious utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and large chest freezer. There is also a WC in the utility room.
