Ambienti
My home is an early 17th century oak frame and stone, grade 2 listed farm house with a range of tumbledown barns. I’m surrounded by fields and woodland, have a herd of fallow deer and am an independent midwife.

I LOVE having people to stay! As long as you can cope with a "lived in feel", probably some cobwebs and a wild garden, come and enjoy my home… very old traditional oak beams, original flagstone floors, loads of steps because the house is built on a hillside with no foundations, amazing views and tranquillity... other than barn owls, tawny owls, little owls, buzzards, foxes, sheep and deer and occasionally the SAS doing some training in the woods across the valley!
You have your own staircase to a large double bedroom and bathroom (with radiator off AGA... a warmish bathroom is one of life's essentials in my opinion) power shower (hard water and Herefordshire clay and lime stained and roughened bath. Only showers at present because of low rainfall... my water is from a spring. When it's been raining, the water may turn clay pink). There's also a smaller bedroom up the same staircase with 2 single beds and an extra mattress available... I don't let this separately to the double room. *(If you'd like 2 rooms for 2 people or the 2 single beds plus the king sized bed for 3 people, there's a one off extra £20 to pay... please ask me for a special price). Feather and down duvets. Hairdryer.
I sleep at the other end of the house, up my own staircase and have my own bathroom but we'll be sharing the kitchen and sitting room.
Heating is from the AGA and woodburner... true country living! NB No central heating so wear extra layers in winter. Seriously, please cancel and wait for summer if you need a central heated environment! Hot water bottles available!

Qasja për vizitorët
You are welcome to use the farmhouse kitchen, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and AGA (instructions available in case you aren't familiar with cooking this way and I'm not around to help). I don’t have a microwave. Ground and instant coffee, teas and milk provided... help yourself anytime. Self cook and serve breakfast, I provide porridge oats, muesli, granola, Weetabix, bread, free range eggs from my hens, jams, honey, fruit (in bowl and oranges in fridge to juice), or bring your own additions. Sitting room with comfy sofas, woodburner, tv, dvd player and dvd's, board games, jigsaw puzzles, lego and lots of books to suit all ages. WiFi but iffy mobile reception. Garden, large trampoline and 40 acres including ancient woodland.

Gjëra të tjera që vlejnë të përmenden
Rustic doesn't lend itself to being spotless, so please don't expect squeaky clean.
I try and have respect for my environment… I compost fruit and vegetable peelings, recycle where possible, am thoughtful about use of water and electricity, encourage showers not baths, turning out lights etc. I have pv panels for electricity (and mains as backup). A wetland ecosystem (reeds and plants) for waste, so only loo paper down the loo please. I'm on my own water supply which is dependent on rainfall so just very occasionally "living like a local" takes on a whole new meaning!

Abbeydore, Herefordshire, Mbretëria e Bashkuar

My home is on the hillside overlooking the very small village of Abbeydore (or Abbey Dore depending on the map or sign) in the Golden Valley just into England on the Welsh border. Cistercian monks came to the valley in the 12th century and built the abbey. The story goes, they asked the locals for the name of the river and were told it’s the dwr (water in Welsh… we may well have been in Wales at the time) and the monks saw it running east west, catching the sun and thought d’or (gold in French), hence river Dore, Dore Abbey and Golden Valley!

I’ve lived here for 18 years and love it. Stunning countryside, very rural so aware of the rhythms of the seasons but just half an hour from anywhere (Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Abergavenny, Ross-on-Wye) and about an hour from everywhere else (Bristol, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Worcester, Ludlow, Brecon). Fascinating castles, churches, lots of walking including from home and good food.

Talking of food, this area has loads of amazing places to eat… sadly no pub in Abbeydore but lots of local pubs and restaurants providing good food. The Temple Bar Inn, Ewyas Harold, 5 minutes drive (every day lunch, Wed-Sat evenings), the Bridge Inn, Michaelchurch Escley, 20 minutes drive (every evening,Tues-Sun lunch plus BH Mons), the Carpenters Arms, Walterstone, been the same for 50 years, 20 minutes drive (every lunch and evening), or Michelin starred restaurant the Walnut Tree, Llanddewi Skirrid, 25 minutes drive but so worth it! (Tues-Sat lunch and evening) or more simply Marcus’s very best fish and chips, Ewyas Harold 5 minutes drive or a 40 minute walk (Wed-Sat), Abbey Dore Court Gardens Tea Rooms for coffees, light lunches including yummy puds and afternoon teas, 5 minutes walk, (March to September, Thurs-Sun and bank holidays) and really delicious made on the farm, ice cream (Rowlestone 10 minutes drive, 1 1/2 hour’s walk, April-September 2017, Wed-Sun and bank holidays). As well as lots of choice in surrounding towns... just ask me!

There's a village shop, two butchers and a garage in Ewyas Harold (5 minutes drive). Or Lock's Garage (12 minutes drive) which sells everything conceivable. Or Waitrose in Abergavenny (30 minutes drive) or Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons and Waitrose in Hereford (25-35 minutes drive) or Co-op in Hay-on-Wye (30 minutes drive).

What to do?
Dore Abbey (10 minute walk across fields or through lanes)
Abbeydore Court Gardens and Tea Room (in village)
Abergavenny food festival September and December
h.Art sculpture and art exhibitions all over Herefordshire in September
Hay-on-Wye… all year round book town and annual literary festival in May/June
Walking: Circular walks from home and all over Herefordshire. Close to Hay Bluff, the Skirrid, the Sugar Loaf and Black Mountains. Walking Festivals October and June
Dore Abbey choral music festivals and courses.
Canoeing on the river Wye from Ross, Symonds Yat or Hay
Three castles Grosmont, Skenfrith and White castle (circular 20 mile walk or drive).
Numerous historic churches… my favourites:
-St Peter's, Rowlestone, Norman with Romanesque stone carving... find the green man, and Peter upside down (he refused to be crucified the same way as Jesus) supported by an upside down angel. Also an extraordinary bracket candelabra... are they doves, pigeons or peacocks?
-Kilpeck, Norman with many stone carvings including an almost cartoon like dog and a sheel-na-gig
-St Faith's, Bacton Blanch Parry Embroidery, only known surviving fabric proved to have been worn by Elizabeth 1!
-Partrishrow church and St Ishow (or Issui) the hermit's cell and well... exquisitely simple and remote.
-St Michael's, Garway very simple Knights Templar church
Black and White Village trail
Big Pit National Coal museum with underground tours by former miners
Llantony Priory and the drive up the Vale of Ewyas, over the Gospel Pass to Hay-on-Wye
Hereford, cathedral city and home of the Mappa Mundi, The Old House and Cider Museum
Raglan Castle

I'm an independent midwife (mostly homebirthing, natural approach), love to cook (and eat), garden (believe it or not looking at my wilderness!), watch and care for my herd of fallow deer and have friends and family to stay. I'm a happy, organised in a laid back sort of way, live in the moment type of person.

Check in: after 16:00 unless arranged beforehand... please let me know nearer your stay approximately what time you hope to arrive. I'd love to be here to welcome you but I’m a midwife and babies don’t understand prior commitments so if I can’t be here, I’ll tell you where to find the key and leave instructions.
I’m very flexible, so if you’re delayed, it won’t stress me out but it would be great to know!
