About The Wain House at Trippenkennett Farm

The Wain House at Trippenkennett Farm is nestled in lush Herefordshire countryside, within reach of the cathedral city of Hereford, historic Monmouth, the Forest of Dean and the riverside market town of Ross-on-Wye. The single-storey barn has been transformed from humble farm building into 4-star self-catering accommodation for four people in two bedrooms, that is ideal for couples or families.

Trippenkennett Farm is in a fantastic location in the Wye Valley, close to the magnificent River Wye and just a few miles from the Welsh border. The beautiful scenery looks amazing at any time of year. Visit in spring when bluebells carpet the woodland floor, in summer when the hedgerows and farmland are at their most bountiful, in autumn when the leaves turn orange and smell incredible, or in winter when the frost crunches underfoot and paints bare branches with a glitter.

Walking and mountain biking are two popular ways to enjoy the landscape, as are canoeing, kayaking and horse riding. The farm has two coarse fishing lakes suitable for beginners and experienced anglers, and there is also seasonal fishing on the River Wye.

The Welsh border was contested for centuries - fiercely at times - and the legacy is a wealth of castles. The nearest are Goodrich, Eastnor, Raglan, Usk and Skenfrith. Chepstow Castle is a stunning medieval fortress on the river, while Abergavenny Castle is a Norman ruin with a good local museum. Other impressive buildings include Tintern Abbey near Chepstow and Llanthony Priory.

All the fresh air and exercise will give you a good appetite which you can satisfy at one of many excellent country pubs serving delicious meals using fresh regional produce. The kitchen in the Wain House is well equipped for self-catering, so if you like cooking you can buy locally grown ingredients at Ross-on-Wye or Hereford, or slightly further afield in Abergavenny or Hay-on-Wye. If you fancy a day’s shopping, then Cheltenham’s boutiques are also within reach. Nearby attractions include Puzzlewood, Symonds Yat, the Forest of Dean Miniature Railway, the Wye Valley Butterfly Farm and Maze, Hopewell Colliery, and the Open Farm in Ledbury.

The Wye Valley is incredibly quiet, particularly when you stay at Wain House and are surrounded by acres of private farmland, yet there is so much to see and do that, regardless of your age or interests, you will find it easy to relax and enjoy your stay thoroughly.

Location (Herefordshire)

Accommodation Comprises:

The Wain House has been renovated to a very high standard, with a flexible layout that can sleep up to four people. Thick stone walls and underfloor heating means it feels welcoming and cosy all year round, while the single storey accommodation is ideal for less-able guests.

  • The open plan living room and kitchen/diner feels wonderful and light thanks to triple aspect windows.
  • The living room has a comfortable sofa and armchairs that face the wood-burning stove and the flat-screen television. It is a lovely room to sit and chat, or to relax with a film after a family dinner.
  • The kitchen/diner is separated from the living room by a row of kitchen cupboards, allowing the chef to stay connected with other guests. The wooden dining table has chairs for six people and blends beautifully with the exposed oak beams. There is a dishwasher and washing machine to help make your stay stress-free.
  • The master bedroom has a 6-foot wide, super-kingsize bed which can also be configured as two single beds if required. It has exposed beams, a door that opens onto the terrace, and proper storage.
  • The second bedroom is set-up as a twin room, but the zip-link beds can be connected to make a super-kingsize bed.
  • A tiled wet-room has a shower with drop-down shower seat, heated towel rail, handbasin and WC.

Outside: There are two outside areas - a decked area with seating and a barbecue, and an enclosed lawn area. The farm has two coarse fishing lakes a short walk away from the property.

Additional Information: The Wain House has central heating and WiFi. Linen, towels and all utilities, including a basket of logs, are included. Well behaved pets are welcome with prior agreement from the owner. There is ramp access to both the garden and the house. The Wain House is a non-smoking property. Short breaks are possible out of peak season depending on availability.
