Description

We have stunning mountain views in one of the most remote and scenic part of southern Britain. The accommodation has wifi throughout, and is spacious & stylish to a luxurious standard: underfloor heating, English oak fittings, antique furniture, high quality white goods, pure down duvets & cotton bedding. Swallow Barn has ample space & equipment for everyone to eat & party together, although each property is fully equipped and supplied with consumables, making 3 independent dwellings. The whole 16th century listed farmstead has enormous welcoming character, and stands in imaginative, well-maintained grounds.

There is a 14 foot trampoline, a games room with pool, ping-pong, table football and art wall; maps, rich library of DVDs, books and games.

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.

“Fantastic place to stay!”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2016

We have just returned from a short break at Duke's Farm. We stayed in Goose Cott and it is a real gem - wood burning stove, everything you need, very comfortable bed in a fabulous setting. Enjoyed lovely walks - especially to the local pub! We hope to be back before too long.

'Gem': now, there's a lovely word. Thanks!

“A fantastic property in a fantastic place with fantastic views”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2016

A beautiful, comfortable and well equipped property that totally suited a reunion of 13 people. Most welcoming owners who had worked hard to provide all the information we required. We totally recommend it .

... do we overload you with local info, I wonder?!

“Top class in every way”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2016

Dukes Farm Cottages are first class in every way. Stayed there with 10 friends and had a fantastic time. The cottages are comfy and have everything you could need including lots of little touches. The grounds are lovely and the views wonderful. We can fault nothing and we will definitely be back.

Thanks for this lovely review! Sorry I was away, but 'team Watkins' assured me it was great to have you stay.

“Sublime experience”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2016

Ken and Ruth were incredibly welcoming.. Their property and, most particularly, the guest accommodation was absolutely fabulous and could not be faulted. Warm, comfortable, incredibly well equipped and in the most beautiful environment. We enjoyed a a family reunion and celebration and the property had something offer all ages. Overall an excellent experience and we would all definitely love to meet there again.

Thanks!

“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.

Aawww! Thanks Lisa - it was lovely having you here.

“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...
