About Yew Tree Barn

Yew Tree Barn is a stylish conversion of an old barn on the Welsh Borders, within easy reach of the Wye Valley and the Brecon Beacons National Park. High ceilings, spacious rooms and beautiful furnishings make the building feel warm and welcoming so that your time here will be as much of a treasured memory as any other part of your holiday. The three-bedroom property has space for up to seven people with a layout that makes it perfect for families or friends. The house opens onto 23-acre Garway Common and is within walking distance of the friendly Garway Moon Inn - what more could you ask for from a self-catering cottage in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside!

Herefordshire is the ideal choice for people who want the best of town and country. The barn is within easy reach of Hereford, an ancient market town with a historic cathedral at its centre. Wander through the old cattle market, now home to an array of modern shops and restaurants, before meandering through the lanes to the cathedral which houses the treasured Mappa Mundi, or browse independent shops before stopping for a restorative cup of tea or a pint of cider - something Herefordians have been proudly producing for centuries.

The River Wye flows through this valley, lending its name to both Hay-on-Wye and Ross-on-Wye. Both are excellent locations for a day of sightseeing, shopping and eating, with nearby alternatives including Ludlow, Monmouth, Abergavenny and Ledbury. The peaceful countryside you see today was once a hotly contested border country, the legacy of which remains in Skenfrith Castle and Eastnor Castle. Other historic sites include the Knights Templar Church in Garway, and St Bartholomew's Church in the tiny hamlet of Richards Castle.

The landscape around Yew Tree Barn is stunning in every season. Symonds Yat and the Forest of Dean are a particular favourite in autumn, although those coming to kayak down the Wye River may want to do so when the weather is warmer. Footpaths and mountain bike trails are plentiful and there are local companies with whom you can arrange bike hire if necessary. Country communities are known for their calendar of events. Herefordshire and the surrounding region have festivals including the Abergavenny Food Festival, Hay on Wye Literary Festival, not to mention The Royal Three Counties Show each year in Malvern and the Great Welsh Show.

Herefordshire has something to keep everyone happy regardless of their age or interests. The owners of Yew Tree Barn have created a place where you can relax completely and enjoy spending time doing things you enjoy with the people you love the most.

Accommodation Comprises:

The interior of Yew Tree Barn is architect-designed and furnished to a high standard. Accommodation is over two levels with an upside-down layout.


  • Entrance hall with a slate floor double-height ceiling and a wall of windows that flood the interior of the house with natural light. Stairs lead up to the open-plan kitchen/dining and living area, and there is lots of space to hang coats and leave shoes.
  • Master bedroom with a king-sized oak bed, proper storage and an ensuite shower room with a WC and hand basin.
  • Double bedroom, also with a king-sized bed, and floor-to-ceiling windows which frame views of the garden and countryside.
  • Third bedroom with a double and a single bed, large windows and garden views. All beds are made up with quality bedding and linen.
  • Family bathroom with a bath, walk-in shower, WC and hand basin.


  • U-shaped living area with spaces for sitting, dining and cooking. A vaulted ceiling with solid oak beams is an impressive feature.
  • Comfortable sofas and a large TV make the living room a lovely space to relax and chat, and the owner has provided a choice of books and games. A wall of windows makes the landscape a decorative feature, and a door opens onto a balcony where guests can sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the view of Garway Hill and the cows in the neighbouring field.
  • Glossy red units and modern appliances add a contemporary touch to this old building and make cooking a pleasure. The solid oak table and padded chairs will make you want to linger over meals, appreciating that you do not have to rush.

Outside: The barn has a paved patio with garden furniture and a barbecue for lazy summer meals. The garden is shared with the owners and includes a flat expanse of lawn and a small lake that is home to fish and waterfowl. There is off-street parking for several cars close to the entrance.
