Granary Cottage is closed due to the Government restrictions.   We hope to re-open as from 1st August (even if the restrictions are lifted sooner) considering Wales (only a few miles away) is likely to be still in strict lock-down, and respecting the view that any local community might be wary of visitors to begin with.  If any existing, or future, bookings are affected by Government restrictions we will offer you a full refund, or postponement within the following 12 months if you prefer.

Cosy, self-catering cottage in pretty Herefordshire village of Dorstone in the Golden Valley not far from Hay-on-Wye. Private holiday home managed by the owners

.  Granary Cottage is a detached barn conversion retaining original exposed beams, with stone fireplace and wood burner. Secluded south facing garden. Sorry, no dogs.  No smoking.

The cottage sleeps 4-5 people, with 2 bedrooms plus additional sitting room/landing with sofa bed, ample living room, separate eat-in kitchen, family bathroom and downstairs cloakroom. The living room has comfy sofas around a large stone fireplace with log-burning stove. The kitchen is well-equipped, with dishwasher, electric oven, microwave, fridge and freezer. The master bedroom has a double bed, exposed beams and a glimpse of the surrounding hills. The second bedroom (downstairs) looks out onto the garden and has 2 single beds which can be locked together for a king size, and a hand basin. There is off road parking for up to three cars. The secluded walled garden to the rear is a real little sun-trap, with a patio, table and chairs and charcoal barbecue available. See photos and floor plan here.

The cottage, which has internet connection, is situated on a quiet lane, with only the neighbours’ cars passing and the occasional horse. The excellent Pandy Inn is in the centre of the village, about a two minute walk away. Opposite the pub is the award winning Dorstone’s Front Room open from 9am to 1pm Mondays to Fridays – the place to go for tourist info, local crafts, and a great cup of coffee and home made cake – they love having visitors!

Country walks are available in every direction. The cottage is well suited as a base for al outdoor pursuits, with washer/dryer and airing cupboard, and a shed available to store bicycles. Hay-on-Wye and the Brecon Beacons National Park lie about 5 miles to the west of Dorstone. For more links and local information please see our blog.
