The Experience

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.

Accommodation

Reviews

A spacious and peaceful room with a wonderful view; outstandingly appetising breakfasts; good walking country; and charming hosts with a wealth of local knowledge. We plan to return.

Des, Surrey

Perfect hosts Silvia and Hetan have made an outstanding job of refurbishing and decorating this historic house so that the rooms glow with old-world charm and comfort. The view of the hills from the belvedere at breakfast is gorgeous. There is a choice of various kinds of delicious cooked breakfast, including crepes, and it’s tempting to try them all. We were served by Silvia, who is utterly charming. She also gave us invaluable advice re nearby National Trust properties and the many walks and drives, including the Elan Valley and Water-Break-its-Neck waterfall. Possibly the perfect B&B.

Denise, Bournemouth

We booked this as a two day stopover on our way the Snowdonia and we are so glad we did! Once you are welcomed by Hetan and Silvia you just know it's going to be a great stay. A warm welcome, great room, beautiful setting and superb breakfast all on top of some great countryside and a lovely walking area. We will definitely return.

Nigel, Whitchurch

It's clear right from the outset how hard Silvia & Hetan work to make Castle Hill House the special place that it is. The bedroom and en-suite bathroom were really spacious and tastefully adorned and the bed was very comfortable. The guest lounge is equally well done and the breakfast area an absolute delight, looking over the gardens to the hills beyond. Silvia and Hetan are charm personified and happy to share their extensive knowledge of the area. We felt very welcome and 'looked after' during our stay and will certainly return!

Belinda, London

New life has been breathed into this handsome old property and it is glowing with all the hard work and stylish touches that have been lavished on it. Calm, peaceful and spacious inside and a beautiful landscaped garden outside with views to hills. You will eat well, sleep well and find no shortage of things to do. This is the perfect country escape.

Location

The neighbourhood

Kington is an authentic little market town two miles from the Welsh border. There’s a pretty church up the hill, and a clutch of independent shops and places to eat at the bottom. Walking trails and gardens to visit are all around you, starting with the celebrated Hergest Croft (0.6 miles) and Bryan’s Ground (11 miles), a three-acre gem. The very beautiful 40-mile Black & White Village Trail starts at Leominster and passes through Kington.

Local points of interest from Silvia & Hetan

  • Kington is known as the centre for walking. We have numerous short & long walks to offer. Take in the fresh air, stunning scenery & enjoy the beautiful Herefordshire & Welsh countryside. Some national trails such are on your doorstep.
  • Canoeing in the world famous River Wye
  • Wonderful food - Weekly farmer's market in Kington and surrounding towns and fabulous local farm shops. There is also a Craft, Arts and Books Market on the third Saturday of every month.
  • Just around the corner from us you will find the highest golf course in England. Kington Golf Club is also Herefordshire's number one golf course. Non members are always welcome. Enjoy some magnificent views of the rolling hills of Herefordshire.
  • We are part of The Black and White Village Trail. The trail is a 40-mile circular motor or cycle route which takes you through some of the prettiest villages in England characterised by a large number of black and white Tudor and medieval buildings.
  • The Small Breeds Farm is one of Herefordshire's top attractions. It is beautifully landscaped and has one of the finest breeding collections of owls in Europe. Enjoy interacting with several other breeds and have a cuppa and bite to eat in their Cafe.

Introducing

Silvia & Hetan

Hetan and Silvia, who met backpacking in Australia, “escaped the rat race” and came to Herefordshire in 2016. Outstanding hosts and passionate foodies, they are a pleasure to meet. Getting the essentials right is important to them, from the tea and treats on arrival to the baggage drop-offs for walkers and the beautiful sofas and beds.
