Monnington House and adjoining cottage is a luxury holiday home sleeping up to 18. The house and cottage have been extensively refurbished and provide 9 spacious bedrooms with 9 bathrooms. Here guests can enjoy privacy and luxury. The beds are exceptional and the linen is sumptuous.
The kitchen is the heart of the house and geared up for numbers and catering. Here entertaining is fun. Local caterers work in the house regularly.
The private and secluded garden is about 2 acres. There is plenty of space to play house badminton or other activities plus there is a huge playing field. Great spot of friendly cricket, rounders and football matches.
The property is situated on the Wye Valley walk and close to circular walks. There are good cycles routes nearby. There is a good eating pub within 20 minutes walk and a fantastic farmshop 1.8 miles from the house which is more than convenient!
Our typical guest is Granny and Grandpa with their children, grandchildren and sometimes great grandchildren. We also see reunions, milestone birthday and anniversaries plus walkers, cyclists, canoeists, gardeners and those who enjoy an active holiday. Book very early indeed for Hay Festival.
We're regulars at Monnington House and this stay was as lovely as ever. The house is so comfortable and well-equipped and the countryside was looking particularly beatiful - we took advantage of some great weather to do some really lovely walks in the gorgeous Herefordshire countryside. It's always a joy to stay here, and we will be back next year as usual.
The property was comfortable, clean and in a lovely setting. It was warm and well furnished and the beds were very comfortable.
Although the weather was varied, we enjoyed the garden and visiting local sites and exploring the surrounding countryside.
The main issues were the complete absence of any instructions on the use of the cooker and other white goods, the boiling hot water, which could be a health and safety hazard, as it was almost instant, and the very slow toaster. However, apart from these problems, which we overcame, we had a very enjoyable, relaxing break.
