Description from owner

A highly unique character cottage being part of a former late medieval hall dating back to the 15th Century. Large, farmhouse-style kitchen packed with character features and a Rangemaster stove. Two very comfortable bedrooms; the main bedroom being much bigger with a medieval jetty and vaulted ceiling which indicates that it would have been the 'solar' for the old hall. The front parlour has original Tudor features and a large fireplace with log burning stove. Spacious, modern bathroom with bath and powerful thermostatic shower.

Highly efficient central heating system means that the property is very warm and cosy in the winter. Despite the 'quirky' features like uneven stairs and floors, and the low doorways, The Medlar should be perfectly acceptable for the active elderly and older children. The front door opens onto the pavement and it is only a very short stroll to the town centre where you can buy fresh, local produce from great little shops such as Jane's bakery and the traditional

Kington is truly a town that time has forgotten! It remains largely unchanged from the 1950's with very friendly people and a much slower pace of life; there are none of the usual "High Street" shops. In their place are several antique shops, galleries, bookshops, a well-stocked local supermarket and a public library with free internet access. There is an award-winning real-ale pub within staggering distance and a luxurious spa with indoor pool and gym just up the road. It is also only a very quick drive/cycle to Kington Golf Course; the highest golf course in England. Walk out of the back door through the private, enclosed courtyard garden and follow your way through the ancient walled burgage paths past the church and up the hill to Offa's Dyke and Hergest Ridge.

The Herefordshire region

Herefordshire offers visitors the chance to journey through lush green countryside, enjoying splendid black-and-white timbered villages, a magnificent cathedral city, a fairytale Georgian castle at Eastnor or books galore in famous Hay-on-Wye. And if all that touring leaves you hungry and thirsty, lashings of Herefordshire cider and local cheese should do the trick! Kington is just three miles from the Welsh border with the mountain drive and spectacular scenery down to the Elan valley, Llandrindod Wells and Builth. The seaside at Aberystwyth is only about 1 hr 30 mins away.

Kington

Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the small, market town of Kington is situated near the Welsh Borders in the area known as The Marches. This charming settlement offers a number of good shops, pubs, restaurants and a variety of tourist attractions close by including the impressive Eastnor Castle, Hergest Croft Gardens and the Offa's Dyke Path. Nestled right beneath the spectacular Hergest Ridge (apparently the inspiration for the beautiful music of both Elgar and Mike Oldfield) and just a short journey away from the Mortimer Trail, its location makes it the perfect base both for experienced walkers or those who just want to walk off a great lunch! (There is a Michelin star restaurant 3 miles away)

Kington is just 12 miles from the town of Hay-on-Wye, world-famous for its plentiful second-hand books, crafts and antique shops. The ancient city of Hereford is also close by with it's impressive Norman cathedral and the famous Mappa Mundi - a 13th Century cartographer's interpretation of the world.

Kington Golf course boasts that it is the highest in England at 1284 feet above sea level! Fabulous panoramic views of the Brecon beacons, Black mountains and the Malvern Hills in the far distance.

The area is also popular with glider enthusiasts as the air currents off the Black mountains are just perfect especially in the winter months and Shobden airfield is only three miles away.

“excellent accommodation”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2011

We really enjoyed our stay here.Every need was catered for from a well stocked kitchen to the cds and dvds in the sitting room.We were attending the welsh show which was only a 15 min drive along a scenic route. all the inns in the area did great food and we were made feel very welcome.

“Great cottage and village-weekend entertainment from the doorstep!”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2011

This suprisingly spacious medieval terraced cottage is a satisfying blend of the ancient with well-appointed modern facilities (kitchen/bathrooms/cathedral bedroom). We landed late Friday after work and parked the car for the weekend. The romp up Offa's Dyke from the doorstep with kids in tow (aged 7-14) was suitably rewarded with a pint and free pool at the Oxford Arms, a few doors a way. We enjoyed the ambiance of Kington high street and Chocolate Box specialty shop (kids/adults) and the adults the various food options/butchers/bakers/grocery (adults!). Shame a weekend meant we didn't fully explore the area, but a wild swim at Pembridge and coffee & cake on the corner was some consolation on the way home......make up your own minds.
