Description from owner

Description

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 butcher's with their excellent home produced sausages.

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.

“Historic home in a central location”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2018

The Medlar is in the centre of Kington, a small town in Herefordshire and very well located for lots of walks in the beautiful countryside and visits to National Trust houses, small towns locally, Hereford Cathedral, etc. The house is friendly and welcoming, the courtyard garden is not private but does catch a lot of sun and is very secure for children and pets. The house is well furnished and suitable for a couple or a family of four.

“Excellent week at the medlar!!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2017

We enjoyed fantastic week away at the medlar after a very wet week camping prior to arrival. Was very glad of the warmth and comfort!! Very well equipped cottage. Washing machine, iron, ironing board and washing line in the lovely courtyard were essential and well used. We were able to park the car with all camping equipment in designated space behind the cottage and other car that was in use every day in car park down the road which was so handy. Very impressed and will definitely recommend to others.

“Short stay”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2017

Excellent, well equipped, clean cottage with loads of character. Great value for money too. Right in the centre of Kington with local shops literally on the doorstep. A great base for exploring Herefordshire and the Welsh borders. We hope to make a return visit.

“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.
