About Monnington House

Monnington House is an outstanding 5-Star holiday home for a multi-generational holiday with your extended family, celebrating your 50th birthday or another milestone event, or catching up with your oldest friends over a relaxing weekend in the countryside. The luxurious self-catering property close to the Wye Valley sleeps 12 people in six superbly-appointed bedrooms, five of which are ensuite and one with an adjacent bathroom. Spacious rooms and extensive gardens are ideal for socialising and allow guests to escape for some time on their own if they choose. Monnington House is in the quiet hamlet of Monnington-on-Wye, with tranquil rural views and beautiful walks from the door (including to The Portland Inn pub at the top of the lane.)

Monnington-on-Wye is beside the River Wye in Herefordshire. It is wonderfully peaceful yet far from remote, thanks to its proximity to the M5 and the M50. The house is at the end of a lane with no passing traffic, just views of cider apple orchards, green fields and sheep. There is a wealth of activities easily accessible, including walking, cycling and mountain biking, golfing, horse riding, fishing, and canoeing. Even if you're not one for wellies and mud, you'll still find lots of ways to keep yourself happily occupied. Hereford is only eight miles from Monnington House. Most supermarkets deliver to the house but, if you'd rather grocery shop in person, you'll find a large Waitrose behind the restaurant and cinema complex. Hereford's beautiful cathedral is a trove of medieval treasure, housing the Mappa Mundi and the world's largest surviving chained library. The city is a vibrant blend of old and new, with traditional shops and markets next to a newer cinema and restaurant complex.

Day trips should certainly include a visit to Hay-on-Wye, where there are specialist bookshops, a ruined castle, lots of cafes, and a world-famous literary festival held every May. Ludlow is fantastic for food-lovers and boasts an impressive amount of black-and-white timber buildings. Leominster's antique shops will have you browsing happily for hours, as will the independently owned shops and boutiques of Leominster. Ross-on-Wye is also an excellent choice for foodies, especially at the Thursday morning market.

Monnington House is available for bookings all year round. Depending on availability, you can book it with neighbouring Garden Cottage, which sleeps six people, and The Cider Mill, also in the grounds with accommodation for six people. Please see the owner's website for details.

Accommodation Comprises:

Monnington House is a delightful period property with accommodation over three levels. Its high standard of fixtures and furnishings means that it truly deserves its coveted 5-Star rating from Visit England.


  • Welcoming entrance hall with underfloor heating and space to leave your bags until you are ready to unpack. Doors from the hallway lead into multiple reception rooms.
  • Elegant sitting room with three large sofas, a TV and a fireplace with a wood-burning stove.
  • Drawing room with more comfortable seating, a second fireplace with a wood-burning stove, antique furniture and a card table. Multi-aspect windows look out onto the gardens.
  • Snug with relaxed seating, a fireplace with a log burner, a TV, and shelves full of books.

  • Fantastic kitchen well-equipped for self-catering or external caterers, if you'd rather get someone else in to cook for you. There are two ovens, a four-door AGA, and two dishwashers, as well as plenty of crockery, glassware and cutlery. The practical island is a social and a practical feature - guests will naturally gravitate here to chat as they cook. The larder provides extra storage space for food.
  • Cloakroom with a WC and handbasin.
  • Utility room with laundry and cleaning facilities.
  • Boot room with space to store boots, wellies and games. It's big enough for dog beds, and there are two dog crates for guests who bring dogs.
