The Medlar

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Kington, Herefordshire, England
A highly unique character cottage being part of a former late medieval hall dating back to the 15th Century. Large, farmhouse-style kitchen packed with character features and a Rangemaster stove. Two very comfortable bedrooms; the main bedroom being much bigger with a medieval jetty and vaulted ceiling which indicates that it would have been the 'solar' for the old hall. The front parlour has original Tudor features and a large fireplace with log burning stove. Spacious, modern bathroom with bath and powerful thermostatic shower.

About the neighbourhood
Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the small, market town of Kington is situated near the Welsh Borders in the area known as The Marches. This charming settlement offers a number of good shops, pubs, restaurants and a variety of tourist attractions close by including the impressive Eastnor Castle, Hergest Croft Gardens and the Offa's Dyke Path. Nestled right beneath the spectacular Hergest Ridge (apparently the inspiration for the beautiful music of both Elgar and Mike Oldfield) and just a short journey away from the Mortimer Trail, its location makes it the perfect base both for experienced walkers or those who just want to walk off a great lunch! (There is a Michelin star restaurant 3 miles away)

Kington is just 12 miles from the town of Hay-on-Wye, world-famous for...
