The Old Barn, Little Quebb

Eardisley, Herefordshire

Follow the Black and White Trail to an idyllic corner of Herefordshire. A restful, restored cottage in a cobbled courtyard of a smallholding


4 beds


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


It’s blissful here in the tumbledown charm of Hayley and Rob’s 15th-century farmhouse and smallholding. It’s a peaceful patch with dogs, hens, rare breed Oxford Sandy and Black pigs and Ryeland sheep, so you can absorb a little of the rural way of life. Vegetable plots are burgeoning, water comes from a bore hole and you’ll feel far away from the grind of the city.

Bookish types will head off to Hay-on-Wye, foodies to Ludlow, walkers to the hills. There are farmers’ markets in almost every village and canoes to hire at Glasbury for navigating the river Wye. The gateway to the Brecon Beacons is a short drive for those who like their hikes long and bracing.

Eat around the big wooden table, open a bottle or two of local Dunkerton’s cider and then snuggle into deep sofas by the wood-burning stove.

The neighbourhood

You’ll need the sat nav. Leave Hereford and Worcester behind and turn off onto an unnamed farm track with the hills of Wales framing the skyline to the west. Kington (nine minutes) has a great grocer called The Grapevine that orders in fresh fish from Aberystwyth twice a week and a few timber-framed pubs. The Tram at Eardisley (two miles) has gastropub classics made with fresh produce from local residents’ gardens. Join the footpath at Offa’s Dyke (three miles) and walk part of the 180-mile border.

Local points of interest from Hayley Parker

  • We are about 8 miles from both Hay on Wye and Presteigne.Hay is internationally famous for its annual literary festival, and its wealth of second hand book shops. Presteigne is a fascinating border town, also famous for its annual music festival.
  • We are close to excellent walking areas, including Offas dyke, the black mountains, the brecon beacons, and the south shropshire hills. The area is also excellent for cycling and canoeing with canoe hire being available near Hay on Wye and Hereford.
  • We currently have rare breed Oxford Sandy and Black pigs and Ryeland sheep native to the area. Guests are welcome to purchase these delicious meats from owners on request. A list of availability is in the cottages.
  • We are close to lots of good pubs serving food, including the michelin starred Stagg Inn at Titley, 5 miles down the road and the Tram Inn 1.5 miles away in Eardisley, offering a range of excellent Pub grub largely sourced from local suppliers.
  • The Elan valley dams at Rhayader make an excellent day out : you can take in the red kite feeding centre, as well as a tour on foot, by bike or car of these spectacular dams contructed by the victorians to provide water for Birmingham


Hayley Parker

It was love at first sight in the Herefordshire countryside when the Parkers sold their business for a slice of the good life at Little Quebb Farm four years ago. Escaping the hurly burly of the corporate world, Hayley and Rob also run a catering company and breed rare sheep and pigs – a marked departure from their previous venture in dentistry.
