The Herefordshire region
The Wye Valley and the beautiful river Wye, is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is the least populated county in England. Not many traffic jams here! The climate tends to be milder on this side of the country a lush, green landscape.
There are 3 cathedral cities close by all worthy of a visit. The Three Choirs Festival celebrates this fact every year. Hereford, Gloucester ( where part of Harry Potter was filmed) and Worcester (famous for its china).
The Cotswolds are within an hours drive from here where there are several famous gardens and stately homes to visit. The National Trust has properties in the north of the county that are well worth visiting and Goodrich Castle a C12th monument and run by English Heritage, is just a 10minute walk away. There are also the three famous castles in Wales near by, Grosmont, White Castle and Skenfrith if castles are your thing! Walking or cycling in the Forest of Dean especially at bluebell time or in the autumn is wonderful. You may be lucky enough to spot wild boar as well as deer and local sheep.
Several well known artists exhibit locally in villages and market towns and each year they open their studios to the public. Details of when this happens can be found on local websites.
Herefordshire is noted for it's locally produced food being mainly an agricultural region. There are too many restaurants to mention but one thing is certain...you won't go away hungry! Food Festivals are held each year in Hereford,the Forest of Dean and Ludlow which is just over the border into Shropshire and of course Abergavenny that visitors flock to.
Hay on Wye is approximately an hours drive away. The Literary Festival is held in June every year and many well known authors, politicians and celebrity chefs attend.

Thank you so much for writing a review. As you say...if floors could talk we would have heard how life was for the Governess who once lived in the Coach House above the stable. Hope to see you both again one day. Liz

"Beautiful Coach House!"
We stayed at Granton Coach House for four nights. From the moment we walked in we loved it & felt relaxed. It is really nicely set up with lovely comfy bed in separate room , Loungeroom/kitchen with everything you could need - comfy lounge, TV etc - lovely fresh eggs were also there for us but no other provisions so you need to do a shop first for tea, milk, cereal etc. There is also a separate utility room off the verandah which was great. Wifi was a bit of a problem - you really need to go into the front yard of the house to pick it up. The location is very quiet & peaceful & the village small - small general store & nice pub. The owners Liz & John are really delightful & very helpful. Overall we loved our stay & wished we could have stayed longer.
Thank you so much for taking the time to send a review of our Coach HOuse. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in June and hope that your trip back to Australia was hassle free.
