The Colloquy


A fabulously furnished ex stable block on a Herefordshire estate, with gardens, squash court, sauna and optional chef


9 beds


8 bedrooms


Sleeps 16


Once a stable block on the Whittern estate, the Colloquy is now a rambling retreat bordered by a walled garden and lavender hedges. Arrive through the cobbled courtyard to find chandeliers hanging from beamed ceilings and walls flaunting contemporary local art – which you can buy if you feel moved to. A chef can deliver treats to the house and the table extends to seat 30, so gather your family and friends around you and indulge. There are plenty of after-dinner spaces for conversation or solitude, and polished brick corridors that lead to a library with log fire and a swish media centre. There’s a big main kitchen, separate from the eating area, and four kitchenettes attached to various bedrooms, perfect for rustling up snacks; all are glossily finished. Retire to a flurry of sleek, roomy bedrooms in the annexe where French windows open to a terrace. Some bedrooms have mezzanine galleries, there are sleigh beds and four-posters, good bed linen and checked blankets, showers, roll-top baths and wet rooms – all chic. Beyond the garden are acres for you to wander. Fabulous.

If you're planning a large gathering then look no further as this property ticks all the boxes. There is space for all, numerous areas to congregate and relax, open fires, vast tables and separate kitchenettes. The sporty can let off some steam in the squash court followed by a dip in the pool whilst the more sedate can soak in the hot tub. There are walks from the door, including one to a truly excellent pub-restaurant, and a beautiful stretch of Offa's Dyke Path a short drive away.
