The Heart of England/Peak District
A thousand years ago, this was the most desperate, dangerous and war-torn part of the British Isles. But also the richest and most sought-after. It left us with the romantic ruins and powerful stories of a troubled past, studded with characterful villages, quirky farmsteads, all in fantastic countryside.
Set in the rain shadow and facing south west towards the Black Mountains, Dukes Farm gets the best of the view, the sun and the weather. It is literally 'smiling across at the Black Hill'.
Our local town, Hay-on-Wye hosts the world's most famous literary festival, and is known for its retail richness, good cafés and gentle charm, as well as its cultural life.
Sufficiently remote that all local pubs are free houses, full of character, the local production is cider, and there are dozens of local brews to try.
