About Haywood Cabin

Haywood Cabin sleeps two guests and sits at the top of Hergest Croft Gardens, on the outskirts of Kington, a pretty border town in Herefordshire within easy reach of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the famous book town of Hay-on-Wye. An idyllic countryside setting, the cabin offers a welcoming retreat for those seeking peace and quiet.

Nestling amongst superb walking country, Haywood Cabin is just a five minute walk from Offa’s Dyke Path where you can walk to the top of Hergest Ridge to marvel at the wonderful far reaching views.

Guests staying at Haywood Cabin receive free admission into Hergest Croft Gardens and have the added bonus of being able to visit them after public opening hours when they are their most peaceful. The arboretum has one of the best collections of trees in the country, including many rare species and 'champion trees' (the largest of their species in the UK and Ireland), and every season there are different areas of the garden to enjoy. Take a leisurely stroll through the azalea garden when ablaze with colour in the spring, see what's growing in the 'kitchen garden', admire the blooms in the borders during the warmer months and wander through the orchard, slate garden and Park Wood where rhododendron, bluebells, camellias and magnolias grow. Afterwards, enjoy a refreshing cup of tea in Maples Tearoom situated in Hergest Croft's old dining room.

Haywood Cabin has been beautifully converted to provide cosy welcoming studio style accommodation which is spacious and ideal for couples. The cabin is accessed via a steep track and sits next to an old farmyard where just a few chickens are now kept. What was once a piggery, has now been transformed into a sheltered patio garden with south facing aspect  - a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine during the warmer months at the end of the day.

Activities: Walking; Cycling; Golf (golf course two miles away); Canoeing (twelve miles); Horse-riding; Bird-watching; Garden-visiting; National Trust houses; Cloud Nine Spa in Kington; Kington Museum; World renowned centre for books and bookshops at Hay-on –Wye (twelve miles).
