Elephant Cottage (so called because, bizarrely, an elephant was once housed in it!) has been converted from a former farm building to a quite exceptional standard. Set close beside an active dairy farm with pedigree herd and in attractive rolling countryside, this timber framed Herefordshire cottage is very well placed for exploring the surrounding area with its network of footpaths and wide range of places of interest. These include the cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester, and the market towns of Ledbury, Ludlow and Leominster, whilst the Cotswolds, Malvern Hills, Wye Valley and Forest of Dean are all less than an hour away. The owner can also offer woodland walks on his farm, stabling, if you bring your own horse, and coarse fishing (three carp ponds - see additional pictures) by arrangement. The local town of Bromyard (approx. 5 mins. drive) offers a good range of facilities, as well as acting as host to an increasing range of festivals.

The owners of Elephant Cottage have successfully achieved every modern comfort whilst retaining as much as possible of the original structure, including a wealth of ancient timberwork - even a small section of wattle and daub. The overall effect is of an enchanting cottage brimming over with character.
