It’s a real treat to have such a stylish and serene house so close to all the town’s best bits. By keeping things simple and pared back, owner Pierson and his partner have created a great feeling of space – even if you fill the place up, there are still friendly little corners inside and out where you can read or relax.
The beautiful walled garden is kept in check by a weekly visit from a gardener: the lawn’s a great spot for lounging with a book and the flagged courtyard has table and chairs for outdoor banquets. If the weather doesn’t do its duty, there’s enough room for everyone to eat at the light-filled dining table.
Browse the overflowing book shops, visit one of the best butchers, enjoy a pint and a people-watch or hire a canoe for the Wye. Return to much comfort and a generous welcome hamper.
