This impressive detached house in Much Birch sleeps twenty people in nine bedrooms.

Bryngarth is a detached house in an elevated position in Much Birch, with wonderful views overs the surrounding countryside. There are nine bedrooms, including three with en-suite facilities, one ground floor room and two rooms which sleep three. There are two family bathrooms, and cloakrooms on the ground and first floors. Downstairs too is a kitchen with dining area and woodburner, a dining room with open fire, a sitting room with woodburner and a second sitting room. Outside are three acres of grounds, and off road parking for six cars. Bryngarth makes a very welcoming holiday home for enjoying Herefordshire and Shropshire.


I stayed here in a group of 20, teenagers and adults. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The rooms are all of a very good size, some of the bedrooms are massive. The kitchen was modern and contained everything you needed, the dining room table seated us all easily. The whole house is well decorated, not at all "tired" looking, so you feel very comfortable in it. But most of all, it was very clean and always warm, an essential in January. In addition, I left something behind at the house and the owners were extremely helpful and kind to arrange for it to be sent back by post. Thank you for a lovely week.

A great place for a large family gathering, especially over Christmas.
Mr Leng

Everything was provided. Plenty of space for people to move around the house as it was so spacious. Finding someone could sometimes be a problem! The gardens were magnificent, extensive, and beautifully maintained. The view across the valley, from inside the house, and the terrace, was lovely. Large high ceilinged rooms and very warm, did not need the jumpers we brought. Hereford was just up the road with its shopping facilities.
Mr Elliott

The property suited our party of all ages and abilities, the ground floor bedroom with en suite was essential for our party. There was plenty of space for everyone to chill out, read or watch TV. A great time was had by all.
Mrs Sunderland

I was invited to join a group of friends for a party weekend at Bryngarth - and it fitted the bill perfectly. The dining room sat us all for the Birthday dinner which was presented by outside caterers. They did an amazing job, particularly since a guest turned on the immersion switch which promptly cut all the electric to the kitchen just as they were preparing the food! The owner was with us in minutes and made a good job of fixing the problem with profuse apologies - it all makes for memories and tales to tell in the future! The caterers remain cool as cucumbers (atleast on the surface) and simply switched to using the AGA - the food was great! My friend an I shared a twin room with a bathroom along the hallway - as you might expect with so many people and old plumbing the shower was OK, but the water pressure wasn't the best and when we tried the bath, the water wasn't piping hot (hence the immersion switch incident!!). The beds were comfortable and our room was light and airy - at first we were non-plussed to be without an en-suite, but we soon got used to it. The house and gardens are stunning and if you exit the property from the far left field gate you can walk along the pavement into the village and local pubs. We also did a great hike around the local villages (accessible by bus or, like us, you can walk to the start and add a mile or two onto the total) ending at the Axe & Cleaver for lunch and back via The Pilgrim hotel for afternoon tea! The entrance to the property is TRICKY from the main road and particularly in the dark!!
