The Old Cow Shed, now serves as a sitting space over a cup of tea.. with next to it the Lha-Khang the Hall for exercise, with a decking in front a place to relax and enjoy the view, the few hens and ducks provide lovely healthy eggs for our breakfasts... further down the Mongolian Yurt standing in the more so woodland area on its private decking, provides cosy space with its wood burner, sleeps 6, ideal for families with kids and animals... There are various spaces, corners where one can be quite private if wanted to, to contemplate the view and surrounding ... there also is a small but very special meditation space 'Gompa' with spiritual reading material.
Overall within the grounds of New Inn Brilley, there is the possibility to accommodate up to 16 people in comfortable however different settings to suit people with different inclinations.. A family or friends in groups of 6 with more so private existences, and the B&B offers a more attended service. Whichever suitable however there is also the option for all to request lunch or dinner prepared for them, of course this would incur an extra charge.
The Heart of England/Peak District
The River Wye winds down through the valley through spectacular limestone gorge scenery and dense ravine woodlands. Superb wildlife, intriguing archaeological and industrial remains and impressive geological features all make it into one of the most fascinating Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Designated in 1971, this unique landscape straddles the border between England and Wales.
Historic legacies - Silure (Iron Age) hillforts; Norman castles; the first Cistercian Abbey in Wales and a pioneering industrial heritage in iron; brass; wire; tinplate and copper works.A quarter of Britain's population of lesser horseshoe bats, a growing population of peregrine falcons, goshawks, ravens, rare whitebeam, nightjar and lesser known fish like the shad and twaite..
The life of Whitney, both past and present, has been dominated by the river Wye. The remains of Whitney Castle, which was built to guard the Welsh border, were washed away by floods. So too, were three stone toll bridges crossing the river to Clifford. The present bridge, part stone and part timber, dates from 1802. Traffic crossing it still has to pay the toll in the old tradition. During the holiday season, groups of canoeists can be seen at the bridge ‘putting-in’ their canoes for a trip up or down the river. Angling is also an attraction on this stretch of water and from the bridge itself.
The Church of St Peter and St Paul was built in the nineteenth century from the stones of an earlier church that was washed away together with the rectory by floodwaters. ‘Wardour House’ at the end of the church drive and ‘West Hills’ to the east of the church are both former rectories.
Today, farming is the major local occupation, the farmers mainly being tenants of the Whitney Court Estate. Many stone houses in the vicinity, which were built for farm workers are now restored and privately owned.
So many more places of interest amongst, Visit Hereford Churches, National Trust gardens The Weir Gardens,Kilpeck - famous for its stone carvings, Abbey Dore - famous for its 12th century Cistercian Abbey
