Stone House is a 3 bed house set in 3.5 acres of rolling hills on the border of Herefordshire and Worcestershire in England. We are 1 hour from Birmingham airport and 25 minutes from Worcester, Hereford, Malvern and Ledbury. You can get to central London by car in less than 3 hours, (or 20 min drive to Malvern and 2.5 hours train from there).
The house is a stone cottage from 1810. It is old and a bit dated but clean and is a very much loved family home.
To us this is our little sanctuary, a private oasis that offers peace and relaxation.
Master bedroom has a super king size bed made up of two single mattresses
Second bedroom has two single beds
Third bedroom has one single bed
There's a fully equipped kitchen and utility with a washing machine and dryer.
There are lots of children's toys suitable for 4-8 year olds, indoor and garden toys. Lots of board games for big and small.
Our garden is very large and is bordered by our large field on two sides.
The house is secured from the road by tall electric gates and hedges so both children and animals are safe to roam freely around the garden. Dogs are welcome!
There is an old cider barn in the garden which we've turned into a fun little private pub, complete with music, fairy lights and a fully stocked fridge!
There is a gas BBQ for use in the garden.
There are sun loungers for the garden and we have a lovely breeze hut that seats 6 comfortably and is a lovely place to eat and drink.
The house is on 2 floors.
This is a small holding and appropriate care needs to be taken as there is uneven ground and different levels across the garden.
We can provide a list of fun things to do in the area. Malvern Hills with its beautiful and famous hiking routes is only 25 minutes away, it's a firm family favourite. The lovely old town Ledbury is also within half an hour. Hereford boasts a wonderful cathedral which is the home of the Mappa Mundi. We are only an hour from the Welsh border. The City of Bath (famous for its Roman built baths) is 2 hours away. Farm parks, castles, indoor play centres, indoor swimming pools, amusement parks, Zoo, lots to do just 30 min - 1 hour from here.

This is a quiet rural neighbourhood, the nearest neighbour is a field away.
There are two places to eat and drink within walking distance. One is a local pub which is our other nearest neighbour and the other is a holiday park (cottages and static caravans) with a great playground for children and a lovely outside terrace area next to it where you can have a drink and a light bite to eat. The park is a 5-10 min walk from the house.
The nearest town is Bromyard which is 3 miles away. You definitely need a car staying here, you can not get around by public transport.
In Bromyard you will find supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, shops, bakery, banks and petrol station.
We are right in the middle between Hereford and Worcester, each is 25 min in separate directions.
Birmingham is 1 hour away.

We are sun worshippers and love the sea and beach but are open to any suggestions as long as they are child friendly!
My husband is allergic to cats so unfortunately we can't stay in any homes with cats.
