The England region

A thousand years ago, this was the most desperate, dangerous and war-torn part of the British Isles.

Location description from owner

The England region

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'.

Craswall

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.

“The new Mr & Mrs”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2016

we came here for our honeymoon... It was perfect ! Ruth and Ken were so welcoming and made it feel like home from home, we had our nine month old with us and I was panicing about it being baby friendly but my mind was put at ease pretty much as soon as I emailed with any concerns and the equipment available was just fantastic, cot, changing mat, bath, walker, toys. Swallow Barn was beautiful , and very well equipped. The views were so relaxing and we had wonderful days out. Arrived as strangers, left as friends. A holiday here is a must.

“Lovely stay (despite the weather!) - would recommend to friends&family”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2016

Ruth was a perfect host and was there to greet us when we arrived. Our group stayed between the larger two properties. The outside area was stunning when we arrived in bright sunshine - what perfect views and great location. Ruth talked us through things to see and do in the local area which was really helpful and a lovely touch. There were maps in both properties, and an extensive collection of games and DVDs. The properties themselves was gorgeous and we were all impressed with how well stocked the cottages were e.g. spare shampoo etc. for those who had forgotten and condiments for the kitchen. We hope to be back! Thoroughly enjoyed it - thank you for everything. Great time with the kids in the games room!

Thanks, Laura!

“A little piece of Heaven”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2016

We spent a long weekend as a family at Dukes farm to celebrate my wifes birthday on the recomendation of a friend who had visited a couple of years ago, and we were so glad that we did. Dukes farm is delightful. The cottage was gorgeous with stunning views across the valley, and had everything you could want from a holiday cottage without giving up any of the mod cons. We were made to feel so welcome when we arrived, It was one of the best places we have stayed.

Thanks, Sam & family!

“Once again an excellent holiday at Dukes Farm”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

As a family over the years we have stayed in all three of Ruth and Ken's lovely cottages so for a change we got the whole family together in Swallow Barn. Great accommodation and high quality with excellent views of the Black Mountains and lots of local info supplied by the owners. We will be returning Thanks Ken and Ruth, the grandson now wants a 14ft trampoline of his own :-)

Thanks, John. As ever, it was lovely to see you!

“Beautiful setting, great facilities and things to do.”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2016

A really lovely place to stay, so peaceful with amazing views. All the facilities and amenities you need. Lots of great pubs and interesting places to visit nearby. Would definitely go there again.

Thanks - it was lovely to have you all here! Ruth

“Just perfect.....”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2016

We were married at Dukes farm 7 years ago. Ruth and Ken turned out to be the best hosts and wedding planners. 7 years on and its just as we remember..... the attention to detail is second to non, comfy beds, soft pillows, decent shower, under floor heating in the bath room. even the small things, salt and pepper, sharp knives and a decent non stick frying pan for you morning eggs. You MUST ask Ken and Ruth where to get what I can honestly say are the best fish and chips I have ever had at the Old Stable the Boot room is a Aladdin's cave, full of all the little things you need or forget. this all along with wonderful views and walks. matched with the perfect hosts..... There are just not enough positive words to say how wonderful Dukes Farm is.

Thanks, guys! So good to see you again...

“All 3 generations in our family group had a wonderful time!”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

The accommodation was so comfortable and easy to be in; the barns have all been beautifully renovated and are so well equipped, for our family group ranging from 3 - 65 yrs we had everything we needed. There was so much to see and do too, we never ran out of ideas. Walking locally was great but there is also much for children of all ages to see and learn about as well. We brought our young dog and he settled in well and we were able to take him for a family dinner at the Bridge Inn where both children and dogs are made welcome and the food is fantastically good value for money. Ruth & Ken were very kind and helpful and were always on hand to answer any questions, and Ruth even went to the extreme of showing our 5 year old grandson how to prune the vines in the vineyard, much to his delight! Thank you Ruth! We would thoroughly recommend this venue to anyone.

“even better than the brochure”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

We booked Dukes Farm for a family get-together to celebrate my mum's 90th birthday. It was perfect. Cousins, children - their boyfriends and girlfriends all had beautifully-furnished rooms, discovered with squeals of delight. Piles of lovely fluffy towels & duvets too. Swallow Barn easily accommodated group meals and party games. Everythingl we might need was generously supplied. Ruth & Ken were very welcoming - there if we needed them but discreetly in the background. They have created a beautiful atmosphere for any gathering.

“Lux, characterful, incredible views”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2013

My mum and I stayed here for a long weekend. The weather was appalling, but the converted barn was so cosy and nice to be in that it didn't matter. There was a wood burner that kept us toasty. One evening we sat outside and had a drink looking at the stunning view, which really is a lovely feature of this place. This is a tastefully converted barn, that has been made into 3 apartments. There is a games room and walks from the house. It is in a beautiful and quiet part of the world. It was well equipt and comfortable and was suitably delux for us both. The owners are extremely welcoming, friendly and generous people.

“A Perfect Break”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2013

We stayed in the Goose Cotts for three nights, and we will definitely be back to stay there again. The accommodation is fantastic, a beautiful old building professionally modernised to a very high standard and very well equipped. Everything about this property is comfortable and Ken and Ruth are the most friendly of hosts. The area is spectacular too. We deliberately chose not to use the car while there and to simply have a relaxing weekend, walking and eating at the splendid local pubs (Bull's Head, Craswall and Bridge, Michaelchurch). The views of the mountains on one side and the rolling Hereford hills on the other are amazing. We ventured slightly further afield on our way home, and next time we will explore the area a little more. If you want a quiet break, Duke's Farm is perfect.
