Haywood Cabin - Kington, Nr Brecon Beacons, Herefordshire, England - Sleeps 2
Haywood Cabin sleeps two guests and sits in 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 total 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. 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 spring and summer displays in the borders and wander through the orchard, slate garden and Park Wood where rhododendron, bluebells, camellias and magnolias grow. Afterwards, enjoy refreshment with tea being served in the old dining room of Hergest Croft.
Formerly a workshop, 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 some chickens and horses are now kept. What was once a pig house, has now been transformed into a patio garden with south facing aspect where guests can enjoy superb views over the Black Mountains - a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine during the warmer months at the end of the day.
