Holiday Rental House
The White House at Brinsop is a grade II listed farmhouse dating from 15th century that retains many of its original features. The attached stone and timber framed former cider house has been sensitively converted into two charming self catering holiday cottages that combine traditional architecture with modern, comfortable accommodation. The properties are available individually or can be let together (see separate listing for Eric Dee's Cottage no 453406). The Cider Press is reached via an external stone staircase. Its well designed accommodation has a secure and cosy feel due to the original oak timbers that are visible in every room.

The attached stone and timber framed former cider house has been sensitively converted into two charming self catering holiday cottages that combine traditional architecture with modern, comfortable accommodation. The properties are available individually or can be let together (see separate listing for Eric Dee's Cottage no 453406). The Cider Press is reached via an external stone staircase. Its well designed accommodation has a secure and cosy feel due to the original oak timbers that are visible in every room. The cottage is centrally heated and furnished sympathetically and traditionally, yet well equipped with flat screen TV/DVD player, games, books, and a wide selection of maps and DVDs. Egyptian cotton bedding and fluffy towels and toiletries are provided. The welcome pack will include milk, fruit juice, home made bread and cake, tea, coffee, sugar, eggs, butter and cereal. Immediately outside the property there is an enclosed, lawned garden facing west, ideal for catching the evening sun and just behind the property is a patio and BBQ area that leads to the ancient fish pool. There is a separate outbuilding that is locked each night and walking or cycling equipment may be stored here. It also contains additional fridge and freezer space should you need it. We will wash and dry laundry generated during your stay with us. Situated along a quite lane in the beautiful Brinsop valley, the property overlooks the Iron Age hill fort of Credenhill to the east, and the Black Mountains to the west - yet is an easy two minute walk from the hourly bus service from mid Wales into Hereford. White House is surrounded by large and accessible grounds that incorporate lawned areas, a pony paddock and a medieval fishpond that extends to nearly an acre. Seats and benches are carefully placed around to take advantage of the views and they make the perfect place to appreciate and enjoy, water, wildlife and the odd glass of wine! The lanes and footpaths around are great for walking and cycling and Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, the Black Mountains, Leominster, the Black and White villages trail and Ludlow are all within easy reach. We endeavour to make the stay of all our guests special, appreciating the fact that you have chosen to stay with us, and pride ourselves on the bespoke service we are able to offer as resident hosts.
