Greengage Cottage

A detached farmhouse set on the hillside, with fantastic views right along the valley and with the dramatic range of the Black Mountains visible all around. Recently renovated to a very high standard, this former farmhouse has all the modern comforts you could possibly want along with original oak beams, a large traditional beamed fireplace, good quality handmade oak doors and wooden floors throughout. This is the perfect location to get away from it all, a great place to relax and just admire the lovely views from the garden and patio, and there are superb walks available from the doorstep - The Beacons Way and many footpaths  in the Black Mountains.  The nearest village is about 1.5 miles away and has a friendly local pub, cafe, small shop and garage.

  • Customer Comments

    We were absolutely delighted with the cottage - it’s in a stunning location, well-presented, clean and homely inside, and there were absolutely no problems. If anything the description online undersold how peaceful and isolated (in a good way) it is.The owner was wonderful. She popped round on the second day with cakes, and her husband stopped by later in the week to say hello. They were both really friendly, helpful, and basically nothing was too much trouble.We’re just checking diaries for next Christmas, but there’s every likelihood we’ll rebook and go back again!
