Lovingly restored to combine traditional features with modern conveniences
The House in the Hills has been restored with great attention to detail. The owner has taken care to use only original, local stone, reclaimed stone tiles, and a traditional oak cruck frame with wooden pegs and beams and hand carved doorway. The floors are oak or flagstone throughout and are heated via a ground-source heat pump, a wonderfully ecological modern-day approach. There are open fires and a lovely Aga to continue the traditional, rural feel. Alongside these character features are luxurious bathrooms with claw-foot baths and walk-in double showers. The kitchens in both the main house and the barn are incredibly well-equipped and these features combine to make The House in the Hills the ultimate in holiday accommodation.
A perfect spot from which to enjoy the views
Outside, The House in the Hills is equally well appointed. Its panoramic views can be enjoyed from several large stone terraces and the hot tub is perfectly sited to admire the dramatic scenery.
The House in the Hills also has a paddock and visitors are welcome to bring their own horse or pony. There is superb riding straight from the door - what a wonderful way to explore the mountains whilst saving on those horse-sitting/livery fees.
With its two luxury buildings providing accommodation for up to 10 people, The House in the Hills would be a wonderful choice for a family holiday, a break with the grandparents, two families or a large group of friends. The barn provides equally luxurious facilities as the house and enables visitors to split the party to suit early risers or perhaps families with small children. With both buildings so beautifully furnished and well-appointed the only difficult choice is whether to sleep in the house or the barn.
An outdoor enthusiast's paradise
For those looking for an active holiday this location offers a huge choice of outdoor activities and sports. With some of the best cycle routes in the region you'll be spoilt for choice. The incredible Gospel Pass is on your doorstep allowing direct routes into the Llanthony Valley, Offa's Dyke Path, the National Cycle Route 42 and Cae Marchog is also near the site where the Three Rivers Ride passes from England into Wales. Many of these routes double as excellent horse riding or hill walking tracks and the views from almost any point will take your breath away.
