Holiday Rental House

It offers high quality accommodation for up to four guests and sits in a beautiful, enclosed cottage garden within the grounds of Docklow Manor. Guests are welcome to explore the extensive grounds and children may use the tree house, trampoline and table tennis available in the manor house and grounds. The views west towards the Black Mountains are breath-taking and there are strategically placed benches for enjoying the sunset with a glass of your favourite wine.

Attractions and nearby amenities This is a truly unspoilt part of rural England, an England of hop fields and apple orchards, of rolling hills, ancient timbered villages and centuries-old churches. Docklow Manor is in the heart of wonderful walking, fishing, horse-riding, cycling and bird-watching country, yet is just five miles from the attractive market town of Leominster, celebrated for its many fine antique shops. A little further away are the delightful towns of Ludlow (famous for its Shakespeare festival and Michelin-starred restaurants) Malvern and Ledbury, as well as the bookshop Mecca of Hay-on-Wye with its annual literary festival.The historic cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester are 20 and 25 miles away respectively. The marvellous castles of the Welsh border towns are within easy reach, as are some of England's finest National Trust houses and formal gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon is just over an hour away by car. There are weekly markets in Ludlow, Leominster, Bromyard and Ledbury, and numerous small shops selling superb local produce.We can arrange excellent fishing for you at the nearby Docklow Pools, as well as horse-riding and cycling. There is a golf driving-range five miles away, and Kington, England's highest golf course, is a 35-minute drive. It is a terrific course, well worth the trip. For those who enjoy walking and bird-watching, Docklow Manor could hardly be better located. We are happy to provide guests with packed lunches in cool bags (with 24 hours' notice). There are several working farms nearby where children are permitted to milk the cows and feed the lambs. We are also particularly well located for easy access to some of the country's most scenic racecourses. Ludlow and Hereford are 25-minute drives, Worcester is half an hour away, and Cheltenham about an hour. Travelling time from London is approximately 3 hours.
