Monnington House and Cottage is close to the River Wye, in Herefordshire, near the Welsh border. It’s on the edge of a family farm, which still tends its traditional cider orchards.

The main house sleeps up to 12 guests in 6 large, en-suite bedrooms.  The cottage sleeps a further 6 guests in 3 bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor, for any guests who’d rather not use stairs. Although the cottage is self-contained, the main house has been designed to cater for 18 guests, so everyone can dine and relax together, if they please (or else retreat, if the main house contains lots of toddlers, and you long for a little peace). 

The cottage has a small kitchen, ideal for breakfast, and the main house has a large kitchen which leads to a dining area with French windows overlooking the garden. There are three further rooms – a snug (with a large television), a sitting room, and then a drawing room, with space to play cards or board games. There is also a barn with a pool table and table-tennis, completely perfect for stashing teenagers.

Outside, there are 2 acres of garden about which to wander, and two terraces, upon which to recline. One of the terraces has seating for 20, and a BBQ and one of the lawns has a badminton net. There is also a paddock, with football goals.

On a practical level, there’s a boot-room, larder and a secure stable where you can keep your bicycles. The pub is within walking distance.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“This is the perfect house for a party with all ages – there’s a lot to do, and stacks of space to do it in.”

About the Location

Monnington House is in central Herefordshire, not far from the M5. The nearest town is Hereford, and Hay-on-Wye is about 20 minutes’ drive away. It’s about 20 minutes’ bus drive from the train station at Hereford. 

Things To Do

Monnington is on the Wye Valley Walk and is close to Cider Cycling routes (which is a thing). The Wye itself has lots to do – canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boarding. Hay-on-Wye is lovely to visit for its bookshops, and Leominster is close enough to amble around if you like antiques. And pubs. 

There are lots of public footpath routes, for keen walkers, and pony-trekking, for less keen walkers.

This is our second visit - we loved it the first time, loved it even more the second! It's a big house which doesn't feel big - loads of space for everyone, with lots of places for people to sit and chat comfortably, but at the same time we didn't feel that we were rattling around separate to one another. One of the nicest things is that this house really does feel like a home. Beautiful furnishings, bookshelves stuffed with books everywhere, well-chosen paintings and prints in every room, it feels like staying with a very kind and well-off relative with a lovely house! We're a big family party celebrating a birthday, which was easy given the gorgeous dining area and two wonderful sitting rooms, one "formal" which was fantastic for pre-dinner drinks, and one comfy one for slobbing with the papers or watching tv. Perfect for kids and adults alike! All the bedrooms are very well appointed and comfortable, with no-one getting a raw deal. Beds are fantastic - we all commented on how well we slept. We also took the cottage which is a perfect little hideaway - our twenty-somethings slept there so they could lie in without being disturbed by small people shrieking with excitement as they ran around downstairs :-) As it was winter we didn't use the garden, but it looks lovely, and there are some great walks in the area. We really enjoyed a visit to Hay-on-Wye, and had a lovely lunch at the Portway Inn, twenty minutes' walk from the house. Finally, the owners are a pleasure to deal with and made us feel very welcome, which is not always the case with holiday lets. In short, we liked it so much we've already booked it for next year!

Stunning house in fantastic surroundings- ideal for a large group. Nothing negative to say - just book it whilst you still can.
