The cottage is situated on the Westhide Estate and provides a contemporary and cosy holiday get-a-away in the beautiful county of Herefordshire.
The Westhide Estate offers a peaceful environment in which to relax and unwind. Enjoy walking through its 400 acre oak woodland, fishing in one of its two pools which are mainly filled with carp, or just sipping a glass of wine whilst enjoying the incredible views of the Malvern Hills and Black Mountains - both of which provide outstanding hiking, mountain biking and horse riding opportunities.

Hereford is just six miles away and benefits from a mainline station, making access by rail an option. Worcester is also within easy driving distance and offers a wealth of restaurants, shops, entertainment and attractions.
Other places to visit in the area include the historic Eastnor Castle surrounded by a beautiful arboretum, lake and deer park, the beautiful gardens at Hampton Court offering a variety of events throughout the year and the popular tourist town of Symmonds Yat.

Another wonderful place to explore is the Hereford Cathedral and Mappa Mundi which is unique in Britain's heritage. An outstanding treasure of the medieval world, it records how 13th century scholars interpreted the world in spiritual as well as geographical terms.
