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.

“Peaceful haven”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2017

Just a lovely place to stay, really well equipped and in a perfect position for exploring. Ruth and Ken are really friendly and helpful. We will be going back !

Owner's reply: Thanks for this - glad you enjoyed yourselves despite mixed weather when storm Helen was doing her best to spoil the show.

“Beautiful, dog friendly, accommodation”

Reviewed 1 Mar 2017

The welcome from Ruth and Ken was as warm as the wood burner they had lit ready for our arrival. The accommodation was truly a delight, comfortable, cosy and some lovely touches. Everything we could need was provided and we felt relaxed immediately. We will certainly return

Owner's reply: Thanks for this review! Will look forward to seeing you again ...

“The best value to be had in the UK!”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2017

Totally agree with all previous comments and would only add value for money is outstanding-where else can you get luxury accommodation for less than £35 per night for two!! Well done Ruth and Ken for pitching up at an affordable price without stinting on those little things that make a holiday special at any time of the year with all eventualities thought of and catered for It really is as good as it looks on the website, no need to take anything but yourselves and then take away loads of happy memories-now that is a bargain!

Owner's reply: Good to hear our rates seem reasonable, because Dukes is still too pricey for some. Thanks, Yvonne!

“The Perfect escape”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2017

We visited in February of this year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were made to feel so welcome. Ruth is so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the local area her book is a definite read. The accommodation was truly perfect and magical. We stayed in the granary which was so comfortable and warm whilst retaining all its original charm. The views to the mountain are stunning and the walks are excellent. The farm is well thought out for couples and families alike plenty for everyone to do. We enjoyed it so much we are looking to return soon. So sad to leave. Thank you Ruth and Ken fir making our holiday so special.

Owner's reply: Such friendly children; looking forward to seeing this family again!

“Perfect in everyway- even when covered in the snow!!”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2017

I booked this get away as a surprise for my boyfriend for valentines day. I am so happy I chose Dukes Farm. We arrived in the snow where we were met by Ken and a roaring fire. The Goose Gotts was the perfect hide away. All the thoughtful touches like the fire burning, local information, a map hand drawn and created by Ruth herself, fresh towels, comfortable bedding, there really wasn't anything else to ask for. We had a perfect stay and we are already trying to decide when to come again,maybe in the summer this time when it's not snowing and we can do a bit more walking (mind you I enjoyed laying on the sofa in front of the fire too :) Thank you Ruth and Ken for everything!!!

Owner's reply: Thanks, Laura - glad you enjoyed your Valentine's break so much!

“Cosy winter bolt hole!”

Reviewed 26 Jan 2017

Thank you so much Ruth & Ken for your warm welcome and support during our stay. I was looking for somewhere to go in a peaceful setting for country walks, pub lunches, cosy log fire & characterful accommodation to relax & unwind for my wife's birthday.....................Goose Cotts at Dukes Farm exceeded all ideas & expectations! Will definitely be back, maybe even with all our friends to share a different type of weekend next time?! Thanks again, Ed & Claire.

Owner's reply: Thanks, Ed. It'd be lovely to see you again - for a party maybe!?

“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.

Owner's reply: '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 .

Owner's reply: ... 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.

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

“Sublime experience”

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.
