This stylish barn is the perfect retreat for two, situated within a cluster of cottages in the heart of a Herefordshire farm estate.

Set within the heart of the Herefordshire countryside with plenty to explore on foot, a haven for enthusiastic walkers with access to waymarked footpaths from your front door. Enjoying a central location and perfect for exploring the Black Mountains, Elan Valley and Shropshire Hills. With many villages and market towns to include Hay-on-Wye, famous for its book shops and festivals and Hereford, with its cathedral, Mappa Mundi and Chained Library are close. There are many National Trust properties: The Weir Gardens, Croft Castle and Berrington Hall to name a few. A variety of festivals run throughout the year such as The Three Choirs, Ludlow Food Festival and Bromyard Folk Festival.

This open fronted stone barn was originally the blacksmith’s workshop for the ten carriage horses that were housed at the estate's stables. Step inside where you will be pleasantly surprised, the original A-frame of the building has been perfectly restored, and is the perfect backdrop to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge area is inviting with sofas and armchairs and the addition of a Swedish wood burner and TV/DVD perfect for a chilly evening. The dining area is enhanced with the oak floors and linen curtains. The kitchen sits to the side of the barn and is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. So when the day is done you will find a super-king-size bedroom with en-suite bathroom with free standing claw foot bath and WC. A spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine with futon a great place to hideaway with a good book. There is an additional king-size bed situated off a mezzanine accessed via the kitchen area, this also has a shower room with shower and WC.

The gardens can be accessed directly via the French doors. Outside there's a pretty terrace with lavender and beech hedged lawns. The teak dining table and chairs are a welcoming place to discuss the day’s activities on balmy summer evenings. The shared heated outdoor pool is available between 1st May and 30th September between the hours of 9am and 12 noon. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Absolutely fantastic accommodation & beautiful location. The Forge is so well equipped, with some added extras which was such a lovely touch. My two kids had the best time here. There was badminton rackets, a football and a frisbee at our disposal as well as board games. The swimming pool was perfect, and not busy at all. Charlotte the property manRead moreager is amazing! As well as David who really went out of his way to show us around ( as we didnt have a map) & Eva was so helpful. FIVE STAR Hide

We really enjoy the stay at The Forge in the White Heron Properties. Enjoyed spaciousness of the barn, design, peaceful surroundings, seeing birds and peasants in a such close proximity. We loved waking up with a view onto a garden and wonderful walks close by in Herefordshire. Overall, we loved every minute of it, and our anniversary was extra speRead morecial because of it. We have already recommended few of our friends, family and, we hope to return in near future. Thank you for having us. Hide
