Bed & Breakfast

A beautiful, warm, history-filled house inside and out with engaging owners, elegant bedrooms and hearty breakfasts


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A treat to stay in this house with 15th-century roots in a hushed hamlet. Claudia (who has an eagle eye for gorgeous antiques and art) and Anthony (who cooks a mean breakfast) are easy-going, lively and cultured. You’ll feel at home with tea or a glass of wine in the drawing room among tapestries and a grand piano. Upstairs are two, very private bedrooms (one more like a suite, the other overlooking the church) with sumptuous beds, plenty of books, original art and fresh flowers; bathrooms are happy places for splashing about. Wake to the smell of delicious local bacon and sausages, blistering coffee and Anthony at the helm.

Couldn't have wished for better hosts who really looked after us. Stayed here on the way to the Royal Welsh show and would have liked to stop at The Pigeon House longer. Beautiful house and furnishings. Very relaxing stay. Room was lovely, very spacious with large four poster bed. Ensuite was ultra clean with full bottles of complimentary toiletries. We had a perfect breakfast in the Pigeons House garden. Nothing was too much trouble. We can not recommended the Pidgeon House highly enough. Thank you Claudia and Antony for making our stay so memorable, we will definitely be back!

Just back from another lovely stay at the charming Pigeon House set in its quiet backwater of the Herefordshire countryside. The historic house offers comfortable, stylish furnishings and a relaxing atmosphere. Delicious breakfast and simple, classic gardens complete the experience of a perfect English country break. Will always return when in the area.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Claudia Thompson

  • Numerous country walks start from the bottom of our garden. Our local 12th century church by the River Lugg is worth a visit, so is Bodenham Lake - a nature reserve with bird hide. Lovely traditional pub just down the road serves good food.
  • We have no end of big houses, castles and beautiful places: Hampton Court Castle and Gardens just over the hill, Berrington Hall, Croft Castle, Brockhampton, Eastnor Castle, the "black and white" trail and the foodie mecca of Ludlow with its great castle.
  • There are wonderful churches throughout the county such as Kilpeck, "the most perfect small Norman church in England" with elaborate Romanesque carvings, and Shobdon with its extravagant Strawberry Hill style of architecture, and many, many more..
  • Hereford has shopping and restaurants, and right on the River Wye, the Cathedral where you can see its 12th century Mappa Mundi, Magna Carta, and medieval chained library or drop in for evensong and hear one of the best cathedral choirs in the country.
  • In one direction you can can engross yourself in the excellent Elgar museum, in the other you can visit the lovely town of Hay-on-Wye with its two Norman castles, twenty four bookshops, antique shops and international literary festival at the end of May.
  • You can make cider up the road at Butford Organics or taste Vodka nearby at the Chase Distillery.
