One of three hideawaysenjoying a secluded location within a Herefordshire hillside, an ideal base for relaxing and getting back to nature with acres of woodland and local countryside to explore.
If you can pull yourself away from the hot tub and fire pit, there’s lots to keep you entertained in the area. From simply admiring the views to strolling the woodlands and spotting local wildlife, you’ll not be short of an activity or two. There are walks aplenty with Offa’s Dyke Path on the Hatterrall Ridge (10 miles) offering a challenge, or even Hay Bluff (14 miles) and The Black Mountains. To slow it down a little, visit the market town of Hay-on-Wye (12 miles), the ‘Book Town’ where second-hand bookstores are at every turn and there’s even an annual literary festival. For those wanting to get on the water, head to the UK’s fifth longest river, the River Wye (7 miles), where you can hire a canoe or kayak, or simply enjoy a day relaxing or wild swimming on the Warren.
The Hideaways are set into the hillside, where you will get a glimpse above the fields as you approach the driveway.
