Start the day with a big breakfast and a gorgeous green view. This grand old townhouse, with a landscaped garden, a brook and a weir, combines a ‘top of the town’ position with a delightfully rural feel.
Hetan and Silvia spoil you rotten and know the best places to go. Welsh border country is famously wild so order a picnic and set off on the Offa’s Dyke Path which runs past the door – it’s one of the most beautiful stretches and views from Hergest Ridge stretch for miles. The Mortimer Trail can be joined from the house too.
Return to a luxurious soak or drenching shower, perhaps an in-room massage, and then relax in the guest sitting room. You can trot down the hill to one of several pubs and restaurants. Or drive to the Stagg Inn at Titley, four miles away, where the kitchen has been winning awards for 20 years.
