Welcome to Warmth and Wonder - a stunning self-catered barn nestled in the heart of 48 acres of expansive countryside and woodland.
The surroundings, teeming with wilderness and wildlife, are a substantial star of this most homely yet thrilling of shows, but so are the beautifully homespun interiors of the barn itself - the stone mounted rococo wood stove, with its ornately patterned frontage and firebox; the warm and open plan living area with its cosy sofas; not to mention the big luxurious main bedroom. Sitting on the southern slopes of Merlin's Hill (Mynydd Ferddin), this converted barn and outhouse offer incredible views of the holy mountain of Skirrid Fawr to the south and Black Hill (otherwise known as The Cat's Back or Crib y Garth) to the north. A simply glorious setting in which to spend meaningful time immersed in either contemplation or deep work.
The main bedroom boasts an exposed stone feature wall - a charming offering that only adds to the restful and welcoming atmosphere that suffuses the home - as well as a luxurious super king-sized bed that can also be converted to a twin. Together with a single day-bed and an innovative sleeping platform accessed by a ladder (also accommodating a super king-size bed/twin), the property grants flexible ways of hosting both individuals and small teams alike. A work desk can be provided along with the table in the dining area, each yielding fantastic options for engaging in focused desk work as you gaze out to the magnificent scenery fronting the property.
Add to all this the sublime stillness, supplemented by the quiet murmur of the nearby stream and the occasional mutter of wildlife, and Warmth and Wonder is more than worthy of its name - the perfect place to work, reflect and refresh.
Previously a cattle barn, Matt and Polly purchased and moved to the farm in 2014, trading the hustle and bustle of London in favour of the tranquil seclusion of this beautiful homestead in the heart of Herefordshire's countryside. Polly, a social worker, and Matt, who works for a not-for-profit organisation, both harbour a passion for wellness, mental health and work that has shaped their design of this astounding property - their aim from the beginning being to create an idyllic contemplative space in which guests can be encouraged to take time for themselves, explore and be inspired by the 48 acres of surrounding meadows and woodland.
