About The Lodge

Beautifully positioned on the Whittern Estate, The Lodge sleeps up to six guests and provides a super retreat for exploring the many attractions of the area or simply relaxing amongst glorious Herefordshire countryside. Family run, the estate extends to some seven hundred acres and offers six holiday homes of a high 4 and 5 Star standard, each with its own unique charm and privacy.

Perfect for couples who appreciate a little extra space around them, families and friends, The Lodge is an excellent choice whether you are visiting Herefordshire for pleasure or business. The estate is within easy driving distance of Ludlow with its superb restaurants, as well as the famous Book Town of Hay-on-Wye with its world class literary festival. The county town of Hereford with its magnificent cathedral is also within easy reach, as are the Malvern Hills, the Shropshire Hills and the Brecon Beacons National Park providing endless outdoor adventures and attractions.

Alternatively, stay put and soak up the tranquility and fabulous scenery on your doorstep. Lace up your walking boots and explore the tracks and trails around the estate or the Offa's Dyke Long Distance Path that runs close by. Get out and about exploring the Welsh Hills by bike or horseback; enjoy a game of golf; paddle the waterways; try your hand at fishing or shooting or go antique hunting in Kington, Leominster and Ludlow - all lovely places to visit.

For those who enjoy eating out on holiday, The Stag Inn for fine dining is just two miles away and perfect for a long leisurely lunch or relaxing evening meal.

Whether you want to be active or simply relax, the Herefordshire landscape around Whittern Estate is sure to leave you refreshed, recharged and inspired at the end of your stay.
