The Experience

Wander down the lane to the brook and the weir; return to your bench in the sun. This funky little cottage, discretely attached to the owners’ house, comes with its own entrance and patio. The whole place – bedroom up, living room down – feels spacious, stylish and light.

Hetan and Silvia know the best places to go. Welsh border country is famously wild so order a picnic and head for Hergest Ridge. It runs right by: a stunning section of the Offa’s Dyke Trail with views to the Brecon Beacons.

Return to a drenching shower, a big bedroom, and a trot down the hill for a pint at the Swan. Kington is a proper little borders’ town, with plenty of small shops and places to eat. Back home, enjoy books, games and DVDs.

The Cottage was perfect for our short break in the area. We stayed for five nights and the Cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable, cosy stay. There's lots of useful information in the Cottage brochure and plenty of leaflets to browse through. The Cottage itself has been sympathetically converted and is light, spacious and warm. Hetan and Silvia were welcoming and happy to provide recommendations. There are plenty of walks straight from the doorstep, and you can buy everything you need in town, which is a short walk down the hill.

Caroline and philip, Shoreham-by-sea

A creatively designed space that suits two people down to the ground. Rustic textures jostle with upbeat colours and the bedroom is a calm oasis in which to wind down and rediscover the true joys of late morning lie-in. A great walk from the door and a super little market town on the doorstep. There is masses to do in this part of the Borders and you truly feel away from the rat race.

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.


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.
