About The Stable

The Stable sleeps four guests in two en-suite bedrooms (it can also sleep an additional two in the cosy Shepherd's Hut in the garden plus there is a guest bed/cot) 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, The Stable 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 at the end of the 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 The Stable. 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.

Ground floor

  • Living room with comfy sofas, wood burning stove, television, DVD player, CD player, iPod docking and dining area with lovely views over the surrounding countryside.
  • Kitchen/breakfast room well equipped with oven/microwave/grill, single oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, Nespresso coffee machine and lots of crockery, glassware, cutlery and special vintage touches.
  • Utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, sink and boot rack. Heating makes it an ideal place for drying outdoor gear and dogs!
  • Downstairs cloakroom.


  • With a king-size bed, the master bedroom is large and lofty with television/DVD player and an en-suite with high tech walk-in rainstorm shower cubicle and WC. Lovely dual aspect views can be enjoyed with the Black Mountains and the Golden Valley providing a wonderful backdrop. A child’s cot or Z-bed can be provided and there is plenty of space.
  • Twin bedroom with a window overlooking the farmyard. This room has an en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe.

Shepherd's Hut: Just a few steps from the entrance of The Stable is a traditional Shepherd’s Hut, sitting between two ancient oaks. Beautifully built by local craftsmen, this quirky addition has a sofa which converts to a fitted double bed. With oak floor, sheeps’ wool insulation and a little wood burning stove, guests will be cosy all year round.

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. The Stable 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. A cot or childs bed can also be provided.
