Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 3
Peel Cottage is a 300 year old, Grade II listed cottage that has been lovingly refurbished to provide the best of both worlds – a chocolate box exterior with contemporary interiors. It comfortably accommodates three visitors, offering a double and a single bedroom. A good sized, open plan lounge/dining area leads to a fully fitted kitchen, providing for all your needs.
Located in the picturesque village of Dilwyn on the black and white village trail, the cottage is set within the courtyard of Karen Court - a collection of 17th Century, half-timbered barns converted for residential use - which has its own close-knit and friendly community.
Karen Court boasts communal gardens including a large grassed area and also benefits from shared drying barn for hanging washing and storage.
We've added lots of modern conveniences to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. These include underfloor heating, wi-fi, flat screen television, DVD player – and even an antique wind-up record player with 78rpm records for the nostalgic ones amongst you.
Feel free to enjoy the garden, but please be careful of the pond! There's a patio set, barbeque and a bench for you to enjoy a little alfresco living and Karen Court's communal gardens are free for you to explore.
The village has a great sense of community - and a fighting spirit which in recent times has saved its school and pub – and there are frequent events organised by a range of clubs and societies which take place at the Crown Inn, Cedar Hall or in the school and its grounds. These range from coffee mornings to film nights, live music events and fundraisers.
The annual Dilwyn Show is a highlight of the calendar and has a range of events, exhibits, competitions and activities every May.
St Mary's Church has been the spiritual heart of the village for more than 800 years. It has a choir, bell ringers and regular services given by the Leominster team ministry. In 2011, its shingle covered spire was refurbished and a ceremony of rededication held.
We hope you enjoy your stay. Please add your comments to our Visitors Book and have a glass of cherry vodka on us. It's made at nearby Pitch Farm, so if you like it you can usually buy a bottle at The Crown to take home as a memento!

The Herefordshire region
Herefordshire is a county with a diverse tapestry of agriculture and artisan crafts, interwoven with historic threads of tradition and architecture.
Home of cider making and Herefordshire cattle, with links to Elgar, Nell Gwynne and David Garrick…and that's just the tip of the iceberg!
Being one of the most rural and sparsely populated counties in England, it oozes beautiful landscapes and many stunning attractions. The county is dotted with market towns surrounded by clusters of villages and at its centre is the City of Hereford, home of Hereford Cathedral and the Mappa Mundi, through which flows the watery spine of the River Wye.
Each area of Herefordshire has its own distinct identity and visitors will have a packed itinerary in order to view its many attractions and take part in its wealth of activities and special events.
Leominster is an historic market town which dates back to the 7th century, combining historic gems with a relaxed cafe society.
It boast a wide variety of shops, cafes, pubs and antique shops, making it the ideal place to while away an afternoon.
It has many historic buildings including The Priory Church, which was founded in 663, and houses fascinating artefacts such as England's last used ducking stool! Another must-see is Grange Court, built in 1633 by the King's carpenter John Abel which is sited at The Grange, a pleasant open space dotted with park benches.
A wide variety of architectural styles can be seen around the town – from the medieval overhangs in Drapers Lane and School Lane, to the Georgian splendour of Broad Street.
It has a bustling market every Friday in Corn Square.

My better half and I stayed here in April and I have to say this is a fabulous example of how to mix the chocolate box outside with the contemporary, boutique hotel type finish inside. It was absolute… More
