When enjoying a break at a holiday cottage it’s important to find a balance between activities and relaxation. If you were to stay in substandard accommodation you’d probably choose to spend most of your time out and about exploring the local area. Likewise if you have great property in an uninspiring area, you’d probably spend most of your relaxing on the sofa.
Doward Farm in Whitchurch, our new cottage of the week, offers incredible accommodation (for up to 16 happy holidaymakers) in an equally stunning area in Herefordshire. And with so many options, the choice of how you enjoy your holiday cottage break is entirely yours to make.
If walking takes your fancy – and with such incredible views on offer we’re not sure whose fancy it wouldn’t take – you’ll find a stunning array of landscapes to explore. The Offa’s Dyke, Three Castles Walk and Wye Valley Walk are all located within 5 miles and offer beautiful historic trails. The Biblins Bridge is only a mile away and approximately 20 minutes of walking beyond that, you’ll find the wooded expanse of the Forest of Dean.
The popular village of Symonds Yat lies nearby and offers a selection of activities for the more intrepid holidaymaker. Take a boat out on the river for a truly relaxing exploration of the area. Alternatively you could try white water rafting if you fancy a little more excitement in your aquatic sightseeing. After that, why not try something more relaxing, like fishing, golf or a spot of bird-watching?
It’s only fitting that in a region steeped in history, Doward Farm should also offer stunning period attractions to its guests. Ever happy to oblige, the property is a large Georgian farmhouse, lovingly restored to offer complete comfort while still displaying the hallmarks of its past (think open fire and exposed beams throughout). But you’ll also find more modern attractions to ensure all your creature comforts are catered for. There’s a TV, CD player, microwave, gas range and various white goods to help you cook up a storm (and clean up afterwards!) Outside of the property you’ll find a good-sized garden with patio furniture and a BBQ.
There’s far more to discover about Doward Farm and its surrounding area but we think it’s far more fun to find out yourself. To book a break and find out more please visit the property’s listing on cottages4you.
