Peterchurch is a delightful village located in Herefordshire’s Golden Valley, just 11 miles from the historic town of Hereford with its impressive cathedral, medieval bridge of the River Wye, and chained library, home to a collection of thousands of ancient books.

You’ll love a holiday spent at The Granary, a charming cottage of great character that also offers all the convenience and comfort of modern furnishings and fittings. The property is a 19th Century detached barn conversion that occupies a privileged spot in the grounds of the owner's 28-acre smallholding between Abbey Dore and Peterchurch. Gorgeous countryside is all around, and the cottage offers scenic views of the valley below.

The accommodation includes one king-size bedroom with an en-suite featuring a power shower, a modern kitchen with breakfast bar, and a welcoming and cosy sitting room with a wood-burning stove. The Granary also offers a pleasant paddock area outside which affords breathtaking views of the mountains beyond.


A really lovely, cosy cottage
We had a brilliant long weekend in this cosy cottage. We did a couple of walks and loved getting back and putting the log burner on. The Granary is very well maintained, the shower was excellent, the bed was extremely comfortable and the views amazing. The owners live nearby but we hardly saw them, and when we did they were extremely friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend a walk at Hay Bluff (near Hay on Wye) and The Pandy Inn at Dorstone for lunch. Arthur's Stone, a Neolithic burial chamber dating back to 3,700 BC, is well worth a visit. Finally, take a stroll up the road to Gwatkin's Cider Farm and sample a few of their lovely ciders and perrys. We?d love to return one day.

The cottage was very snug with the wood burning stove.

We chose this cottage as a base to visit the Hay Festival. The cottage was a little dissapointing. The cottage was clean enough on the surface but if you looked closer it needed a good spring clean. I am aware it is a cottage in the middle of the countryside, so expect some spiders/insects etc but there were so many spiderswebs on the ceiling and walls. A hoover or long handled duster would have sorted them out! These are complaints that have been left in other reviews (which sadly we didn't read before booking!) so not sure if the owners have taken this on board. The attention to detail is lacking. There is no hanging rail/wardrobe in the bedroom, no bin in the bathroom (there is one in the bedroom). Considering the cottage faces a holiday let for 10, a blind at the fairly large kitchen window and at the bathroom window (both face the other holiday let), the bathroom window is frosted but a blind would be good for people who want more privacy. The toilet handle was dodgy from the start of our holiday and then broke. We decided not to tell the owner a) because we were on holiday and didn't want to be bothered with plumbing issues, and b) because these kind of things should be checked and kept on top if by the owners. It was simpler just to flush the toilet using the flush mechanism inside the cistern. The cottage was fine as a base for Hay Festival as we were out early ish and back late ish. It was not a cottage that personally we felt we could spend time relaxing. There are good points! The cottage is in a beautiful setting with gorgeous views. It was quiet ( the family in the 10 person holiday let were quiet and kept themselves to themselves) and we slept very well. The bedroom is the best bit of the cottage and the bed very comfortable! There were House martins nesting, and it was lovely to watch them going about their business finding food and sorting their nests out. The shower was excellent and very powerful. We would probably not choose this cottage again personally but I am aware that lots of people have found it to be a lovely cottage and have provided good reviews. We still enjoyed our holiday and our first visit to the area.

The Granary is set in picturesque country side, very quiet, peaceful & pretty. The bed was very comfortable and the power shower - fantastic!!

Peaceful holiday cottage that's ideally placed for Hay Festival
Friendly owners helped make our stay very pleasant. Peaceful surroundings and the use of the gardens made our stay relaxing. Hay is within easy reach so we were able to visit the festival all week.
