Between the bedrooms is a family shower room with a large shower cubicle, W.C., and washbasin, while downstairs is an additional cloakroom.

Walking visitors to Ledbury are spoilt for choice when it comes to walking, with paths and trails throughout the local area and further afield, including in the Malverns, along Offa’s Dyke and the stunning Wye Valley, and there are at least three walking festivals every year. The Herefordshire Trail is a 150-mile route that links the five market towns of Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye, Kington, Leominster and Bromyard, along with some of the picturesque villages and hamlets for which Herefordshire is renowned. The Wye Valley Walk runs for 136 miles from Plynlimon in mid-Wales (near the source of the River Wye) to Chepstow in Monmouthshire (where the Wye joins the Severn Estuary). The walk enters Herefordshire at Hay-on-Wye and leaves the county after 57 miles, just north of Monmouth. It is a clearly waymarked walk, following the route of the river, either along riverside paths or in wooded sections, giving excellent views of the Wye valley from the surrounding hills.

The cottage is conveniently located a few minutes walk from the main road with easy access to local shops and restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped and large enough for a family of four to eat at the table comfortably. The living room is smaller with seating for 4 people to sit and watch television. Both bedrooms were clean and the soft furnishings were appreciated. There was plenty of tea, coffee and a lovely cake waiting for us and Janet provided some useful information on the layout of the shops. Parking outside the Barn is quite tight but the space shared with a few other holiday makers only. All in all a great property.
What a fabulous find. This beautiful little cottage is so conveniently located. A short walk from the town centre, where there is a wonderful selection of little shops and cafes. Yet only a ten minute drive from the stunning Malvern Hills. The Conygree Woods are a short stroll away for morning walks if you have a dog. The cottage was very well equipped, with everything we needed during our stay, and the beds were super comfy, with the master bedroom having a super king size, which felt very luxurious! Janet and Peter were quick to greet us on arrival and make us feel very welcome. They live in a cottage opposite so were regularly around with a smile and some helpful local knowledge. We would definitely be happy to return to The Barn, or any of the little cottages in this complex, when we want to explore this area further.

Beautifully clean. Good location for town. Lovely big bed.

Very well equipped cottage just a stone's throw from the high street. Very comfortable and homely. Spacious bedrooms with very comfy beds. Lovely helpful couple on hand for help and enquiries. Great location as a base to visit the surrounding area. Highly recommend.
We were four motorbikers and the property was ideal as we could park our bikes right outside the property. Ideally located, with just a very short stroll into town. Very quiet (except when we left each morning-sorry about that) and very well equipped. Spotlessly clean. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property.
Located in the centre of historic Ledbury, the Barn is the perfect base for exploring Ledbury - increasingly popular for its poetry and food festivals - and the wider areas of Herefordshire, the Wye Valley, and the Forest of Dean. The Barn is within a minute’s walk of Ledbury’s cobbled medieval streets and famous timber-framed buildings, notably the 17th-Century, Grade 1 listed Market Hall which is still the site of a twice-weekly market on Tuesday and Saturday. This thriving market town has plenty of tea rooms, coffee shops, and restaurants to choose from (should guests want a break from self-catering), plus antique shops, craft shops, and art galleries.
