About Cothill Barn

Cothill Barn sleeps eight guests in four en-suite bedrooms (plus an additional two with the use of a sofa bed) and is a beautiful 18th Century listed barn that has recently been sympathetically and stylishly converted to provide relaxed self-catering accommodation that is both family and pet friendly.

Ideally positioned in Herefordshire, just a short drive from the book town of Hay-on-Wye and the Brecon Beacons National Park, Cothill Barn sits close to the Welsh borders. Here you can enjoy superb walking from the front door and explore nearby attractions such as The Globe at Hay, Hereford Cider Museum, the cathedral city of Hereford and the stunning National Trust Weir Gardens on the banks of the River Wye to name just a few. The area also hosts some world class festivals including the Hay Festival of Literature and Arts at the end of May and the annual Herefordshire Walking Festival in June.

Herefordshire was a pioneer in the local food revolution and has one of the country's most popular food festivals in the grounds of Hereford Cathedral in late summer. Another popular 'foodie' event is the Ludlow Food Festival in early September and also the Abergavenny Food Festival in mid September - both within easy reach.

As you would expect for an area proud of its produce, there are plenty of excellent eating establishments locally for those who want to enjoy a meal out. Alternatively, the owners can provide your meals for you by arrangement allowing you to enjoy a truly relaxing break in the comfort of Cothill Barn. The owners have a second self-catering cottage and two glamping units - a charming vintage caravan and spacious bell tent - on site. All are private and self contained, but can also be booked together depending on availability.

  • Bedroom three is on the ground floor and takes rustic simplicity a step further. It has antique French twin beds and a separate large en-suite bathroom with rolltop bath and shower over.​
  • Bedroom four is also on the ground floor and is easily accessible with a small antique French double bed (4ft), a large wet room with power shower that is wheelchair accessible and patio doors that take you outside and provide lovely views over the fields.
  • The galleried landing and balcony provides the perfect peaceful place for a quiet moment with great views across the valley.
  • Well equipped kitchen/dining room providing all you need for preparing supper or a special dinner party. There is a four oven range cooker, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and good selection of glasses, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.
  • Hallway​ where there is a small WC under the stairs and also the iPod/CD/radio.
  • Sitting room​ with cosy woodburner, soft lighting, comfy sofas, television and DVD player.
  • Snug/children’s room with a glazed door leading out to the enclosed garden. There is also a double sofa bed and Wi-Fi internet access​.
  • Utility/dog room​ where you can do the washing and store coats/shoes.

Outside: A large enclosed garden affords lovely views down the valley and over to the Black Mountains. There are lots of sitting areas where you can soak up the tranquility and scenery. The rustic garden shed houses additional garden chairs and a small garden firepit for cosy nights outside by the fire. Off-road parking for several cars.

Additional information: The owner's can deliver meals and packed lunches. Cothill Barn has full central heating. Beds are made up ready for arrival with cotton bedding and feather duvets. Mobile reception is available with Orange, Vodafone and T-Mobile being the most reliable. Wi-Fi is available. If you are bringing a dog, please remember you are on a farm and a lead is essential for walking in the fields, as the owner's also have dogs, sheep and poultry. Dogs must be kept off furniture and downstairs and the owner's would prefer that they slept in the utility room where there is underfloor heating to keep them warm and cosy.
