The Experience

Half of the cottage was built in the 1700s and is black and white timber framed, the other half is a modern brick addition. It stands opposite the main farmhouse but well out of sight, on what was originally part of the Broxwood Estate. You’ll feel comfortable in the living room, warmed by a clear view stove, surrounded by quirky artwork and with plenty of natural light and views over fields and the orchard.

Bedrooms, one downstairs, have lovely views too and high ceilings so the feel is spacious. On rainy days you can hide away in the outdoor sauna or play table tennis at the covered table, when the sun shines you can soak in the hot tub and barbecue your supper on a neat Nordic metal affair. The kitchen is a good size and has an Aga and an electric cooker, you’ll find basics in the cupboards and – depending on the season – local cheeses, cakes, jams, pastries and breakfast things.

Walk into the village of Pembridge, a mile away, part of the Black and White Trail, for supplies.

Reviews

A new lease of life has been breathed into this ancient farmer's cottage and a great sense of fun and deep comfort combine wonderfully. Rolling farmland on all sides and a listed orchard to gaze into from a wood-fired hot tub. An owl may hoot as you barbecue local steaks on the Nordic grill. There is much to explore and you have one of the area's best restaurants close by. And so peaceful too.

Location

The neighbourhood

A classic rural setting with the fields rotating through the year from crops to pasture. Pembridge has an ancient covered market, a great craft gallery and a good farm shop. Hay-On-Wye is 10 miles, a beautiful Borders town famous for bookshops and independent shops, cafés and galleries. Leominster is 5 miles for antiques, wine and cheese. Ludlow, a medieval gem, has several markets a week.

Local points of interest from Jacqui Tooby

  • We work closely with Natural England to encourage wildflowers and wildlife onto the farm including bees, butterflies, and insects. Listen to the owls, watch the deer. We are passionate about British farming, looking after our soil, many fields at a time.
  • The Cider Barn is a 450 year old, Grade II listed barn at Dunkertons Cider Mill, just outside Pembridge, only 10 mins drive away, or a stroll down the lanes. They serve fantastic local produce, and it's where all the locals go.
  • More than thirty bookstores, many specialising in out of print or hard to locate titles, luring literary lovers to this market town of 2000, known as the Town of Books. Snugly nestled in the County of Powys at the English border. A must for festival goers.
  • Walk Offa's Dyke Path, exploring stunning scenery, the 8th century barrier between England and Wales. Then stop in a pub with the locals for a few refreshments on your way. Hire some bikes, or go horse riding. Treat yourself to a spa in Hereford.
  • The Cider Route , over nine different mills, producing over 60 million gallons a year. Take in a tour at Chase distillery. Drive through the Black and White villages and visit the beautiful churches - one in every village. You're just 10 minutes away.
  • A moated manor at Brockhampton, the Georgian elegance of Berrington Hall, Croft Castle, a family home for nearly 1,000 years and The Weir Garden, a riverside hide-away; there is so much to see. Or just relax in our beautiful cottage, nestled in our orchard.

Introducing

Jacqui Tooby

Lower Green Farm has been in Jacqui's family for 100 years. Her husband is one of seven siblings and they all farm in Herefordshire - it's in the blood! They're deeply committed to greening the farm as much as possible: wildflower meadows, direct drilling, no fertilisers. The reason for the artificial grass around the cottage is to save water and not to use petrol for mowing.
