The Experience

Blink and you’ll miss the entrance to The Freeth, an unobtrusive gateway with no signs from the road. Then, head down a mile-long track to this huge red-brick farmhouse, with gardens by a Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winner, orchards brimming with fruit trees, a walled garden angled to catch the evening sun and a wisteria-clad terrace. You won’t need your alarm: the birdsong will wake you up in the morning.

The 1,500-acre Netherwood Estate provides plenty of space to roam, plus an indoor pool for when the weather isn’t being friendly. It’s not just multi-generational families who’ll love this fantastically restored home: consider it for a smart pre-wedding send off, or corporate events.

Keen cooks will love the Aga and magazine-worthy kitchen, but if you fancy a break there’s a Michelin starred, award-winning new restaurant, Pensons, on the estate.  Don’t miss the Sunday Service: papers delivered mid-morning, followed by brunch or Sunday roast with all the trimmings.

The neighbourhood

The Freeth, originally a hunting lodge on the edge of a medieval deer park, is hidden away at the end of a no-through road. You’re on the beautiful Herefordshire-Worcestershire border, with rolling countryside as far as the eye can see: no roads, houses or streetlights to mar the view. The nearest hint of civilisation is four miles away in Bromyard, where you’ll find a choice of pubs.
