Bromyard, Herefordshire, England
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.

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. Elephant Cottage has a Visit Britain 4 Star grading.

A cosy, warm, comfortable cottage, very well equipped and in a great location to explore Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire. The owners, Margaret and Peter, were very welcoming and friendly. My husband enjoyed the private fishing despite the rain! Plenty of good places to eat within a short drive.

We booked a long weekend at the Elephant Cottage, Bromyard, and we can't wait to go back there. The cottage itself is beautiful - cosy, luxurious, well thought out, with lots of lovely nice touches. It is set in amazing countryside, and our hosts, Mr and Mrs Lewis, encouraged us to explore the fields, the farm and the lakes. We...

About the neighbourhood
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 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.
