A beautiful walled garden, charming owners and delectable views at this beautiful 17th-century home in the heart of the Wye Valley

Climbing roses, the hum of bees, frogs splashing in the pond... the walled garden of Liz and John's 17th-century village home is as bountiful as it is beautiful. Liz picks fruit for muesli and preserves which combine with John's home-baked bread, Gloucester Old Spot sausages and local honey for breakfast. Rooms are soothingly elegant with beams, fireplaces and stained-glass windows; the garden bedroom is a sun-filled joy with dazzling views of Coppet Hill. Venture forth to local glories like Symonds Yat, the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons; return to relax in the garden or by an open fire in chilly months.

Local points of interest from
Liz & John Bloxham:

  • There are plenty of super walks from the door, along the river Wye or on Coppett Hill. The views from the top of the hill are amazing across to the Brecons and Welsh mountains whilst the walk on the river bank is gentler and very peaceful.
  • Goodrich Castle is about a 10 minute stroll away and is well worth a visit. Run by English Heritage, it offers a good audio tour that brings to life what it was to live in the castle in the C12th. The visitor centre and cafe is well worth a visit.
  • The ancient Forest of Dean is on the doorstep with many types of activities on offer. Walks during bluebell time or the autumn are beautiful. For the more energetic, there are off road cycle tracks. You may be lucky enough to spot the wild boar and deer..
  • If cycling is not your thing, perhaps hiring a canoe is. The canoe hire at Symonds Yat west takes you to the launch site and paddling with the flow of the river makes for a wonderful way to see wildlife along the river banks with 1 or 2 stops for a picnic
  • Hay on Wye, famous for it's Literary Festival every year is only 40 mins away. The drive past Llanthony Abbey and onto the Brecon Beacons is spectacular. There are plenty of places to stop the car and walk and then meander in Hay bookshops or galleries.
  • Known as a "hiiden gem", Herefordshire doesn't disappoint foodie affectionadoes! Abergavenny food Festival is held every year. From simple pub meals to Michelin starred restaurants, you won't go hungry! 2 pubs serve good food in the village.
