Booked two rooms (Monnow & Wye) at short notice and would have been hard pressed to find a more idyllic location.
Kilpeck is a picture postcard village, located about a mile off the main Hereford to Abergavenny road, complete with village green, red telephone box and a giant oak tree planted in 1806 to commemorate Nelson's victory at Trafalgar.
The Kilpeck Inn ( The Red Lion in bygone centuries) poses a question on the bar wall whether or not it is the most Eco friendly Inn in England such is it's attempt to be as green as possible in every aspect of business. It's impossible to say whether or not it's claim is justified without visiting all other Inns (a chore we would happily undertake) but what we can say is that the beds are the most comfortable my wife and I can recall sleeping in. A beautiful mattress and crisp Egyptian cotton sheets and duvet cover.
This is an extremely high quality establishment, from the staff, the level of service, the quality of food and the beautiful bedrooms (complete with complimentary toiletries).
The only blemish on an otherwise perfect stay was being woken at 5.30 by the local cockerel who had obviously decided that if he was awake then everyone else should be as well :). He seemed to have a couple of friends close by who joined in the early morning chorus at one stage before the wood pigeons got in on the act as well. It should be said that we did have our windows slightly open for ventilation purposes and my parents who were in an adjacent room with closed windows didn't enjoy the same wake up call.
All in all a lovely (and all too brief) stay at an Inn that we would heartily recommend to our friends
