Five star accommodation in Herefordshire Five star accommodation in Herefordshire

Historic Gardeners Cottage was the Head Gardeners Cottage for the Whittern Estate built in around 1850. Constructed with Masonic perfection and interesting detail it is a solid and well-proportioned house that sits in large open gardens of its own. It enjoys an isolated position in the middle of the Whittern Estate next to the original and enormous kitchen garden with its 18th century red-brick walls. The surrounding Herefordshire/Welsh border area is full of walks, places of historic interest and natural outstanding beauty. Hay-on-Wye and the Black Mountains are only 15 miles away and Ludlow and the South Shropshire Marches a similar distance.

Gardeners Cottage is adjacent to The Forge (5 metres) and taken in conjunction they with each other they can easily seat 10 in both dining rooms. The accommodation at Gardeners Cottage is very well laid out and all the decoration and furniture is designer orientated. The back entrance through an eclectic courtyard comes straight into the fully fitted kitchen (off which there is a utility room and a large funky modern shower and loo). The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and will seat up to 10 around a large mahogany table. The sitting room is the other side of the front entrance and porch area and has comfortable sofas and armchairs and a very efficient wood-burner. Upstairs, Bedroom 1 has a kingsize bed with ornate cane bedhead and a vanity unit in the room; Bedroom 2 has a double bed with French style bed and again a sink of its own and Bedroom 3 whilst smaller is still very comfortable with leopard-skin throws on two single beds. The bathroom has a large enamel bath, basin and loo.
