Should they wish to venture out of their personal areas within the house, they are welcome to join me for an hour in the evening in one of the other rooms. The gardens are all accessible & guests may wander freely within just under 12 acres, There is a boat on the lake and they can explore the surrounding Common of approximately 25 acres. Footpaths, bridleways, books and maps are on hand for guests to use. A black & white Inn is a short 3 minute walk away away as are several restaurants, pubs & cafe's a little further afield after a 10 minute walk.
Interaction with guests
I would love to make your special getaway a truly amazing experience & can be fairly hands on with organising & recommending ideas for celebrations, anniversaries & weddings etc... alternatively I can leave you to your own personal relaxation by recommending beauty treatments,spa's, walks, cycling paths etc.whichever you prefer. You are also welcome to use my easel & some of my art materials if you wish to paint or draw plein air. There are tree swings in the garden & alfresco dining areas should you choose to eat out.
Other things to note
Ludlow is a most beautiful place to venture, as is Hay-On-Wye. There are several golf courses & sports facilities locally. I have a happy Irish Setter if you wish to fuss or walk him. I have two beautiful & well behaved children of 9 & 14 years if you'd like to fuss or walk them! There are still barns to renovate so access to these areas is restricted completely due to safety. There is open water and a reasonably steep bank therefore care is recommended at the waters edge. No smoking in the house please, I can provide an ashtray for you if you do need to smoke outside. A medical kit & fire extinguisher is under the sink. Please respect my neighbours on the common as this is a very peaceful area. Please note that prices quoted are per the lowest priced room for two people per night.
- Quiet from Midnight until 5am please unless agreed in advance
