The Experience

In a land of neat farms and orderly orchards you bump down a narrow track to Homestead Farm, the owners’ charming home, and opposite is your sweet little Bothy: a blue wooden barn with slate tiled roof and miniature clock tower. Idle in the enchanting gardens: lake, boathouse, island, hundreds of trees; picnic or barbecue in your own summer house built specifically for guests by Iain. Inside is open-plan, calm, light and stylish in blue grey tones with splashes of colour like the tartan sofa – inspiration was drawn from the fisherman’s cottage the couple lived in on the Moray Firth. There’s a dining table for four, a small galley kitchen with enough pots and pans to rustle up a light supper, a cute bunkroom (with teddies and toys) for the kids and a lovely double with a soaring skylight. And there’s a spoiling shower room with marble tiles and smellies. There are books, games and freeview TV if you’re staying in but head for the hills; this is a great pad for walkers. Iain and Joanna are delightful and on hand should you need anything; ask nicely and you may get to take a dip in the indoor pool – bliss.

We had a week in this lovely peaceful cottage, in amazing garden of hosts. In the middle of the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, 10 minutes from the quaint Ledbury with great independent shops/supermarket and bit further to Great Malvern and bigger town of Hereford. Cottage is really cute and has everything you need and hosts left us milk, eggs, jam etc and let us use their amazing pool with views over the rolling countryside. Cottage comes with access to huge gardens with summer house for guests (BBQ/seats), pond and tree swing. Lots to see and do in the area, highly recommended.

Local points of interest from Joanna & Iain MacLeod

  • The historic market town of Ledbury is 7 miles away, with its alleyways of boutiques and a large choice of great restaurants.
  • There are two supermarkets within easy reach.
  • Visit Malvern for agricultural and flower shows - there’s also a very good theatre.
