  • A rustic barn with a contemporary twist - it has a private courtyard, perfect for two and set within a peaceful Herefordshire hamlet
  • Explore the Wye Valley, Forest of Dean and Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Within easy reach of Ross-on-Wye, Hay-on-Wye, Monmouth and Abergavenny
Property code: 78475

Peacefully tucked away within the pretty Herefordshire hamlet of Llanwarne, this rustic barn is a perfect hideaway for two. Cleverly finished with an interesting collection of artworks, rustic homewares and salvage yard treasures.

Set in the peaceful hamlet of Llanwarne, within the heart of the Herefordshire countryside, this is a property where you can enjoy a wealth of walking from your front door. Garway Hill is close by, where on a clear day, you can enjoy views across five counties as well as keeping an eye out for the local wildlife. Also, within easy reach is the Wye Valley Way, Offa’s Dyke and the Forest of Dean. If you are looking for more challenging hikes and climbs, head to the Brecon Beacons National Park or visit Hay-on-Wye, known as the town of books and home to the renowned literary festival. Abergavenny is another great place to explore as it is a town rich in history and has a weekly farmers' market. Or why not head to Ross-on-Wye where you can stock up in the local deli and rummage in the antique stores.

This rustic barn has been painted in dark hues inspired by the garden blackbird. Step inside where you will be pleasantly surprised by the unique architectural style that cleverly blends both old and new. The ground floor space is open plan with high vaulted ceilings and skylights which open the barn up to the ever-changing light. The lounge offers a space where you can relax after a day exploring, with a wood burner, TV and DVD. The dining space takes centre stage within the barn; the reclaimed table and refectory chairs lend well to a hearty supper of local produce. The kitchen has been finished with rustic charm with a butcher block with stools for you to enjoy a morning coffee, along with fruit crates that are stocked with colourful crockery. The kitchen space offers an electric oven and five-ring gas hob, fridge/freezer and Nespresso machine. The bathroom is off the kitchen and has a deep, claw-foot bath, and powerful walk-in shower and WC as well as an intriguing collection of reclaimed carpentry tools. Climb the stairs to the bedroom on the mezzanine where the king-size bed is made with beautiful, fresh linen, and a cosy feather duvet. More magazines and books line the shelf on the stairway, and the Moroccan lanterns create wonderful patterns on the vaulted ceiling.

French doors open onto the private, paved courtyard, outdoor table, stools, and a BBQ. For wine enthusiasts, why not visit the owner’s vineyard where you can sample the local wines and enjoy a tasting and vineyard walk (by prior arrangement and dependent on time of year).

Lovely peaceful location, well positioned for visiting all the major towns in the surrounding area. Well equipped and uniquely furnished accommodation. Very comfortable bed. Would need to reach pubs/shops by car. Overall a very relaxing place to stay.

Great location. In our opinion not luxury as advertised. Steep stairs in property & the upper garden access dangerous (no rail) despite disclaimer in booklet - after a long days walking(tired legs) didnt use upper garden area due to narrow stoney path, and not a nice ambiance - pots overgrown, no flowers, loose stones by the access steps. Quirky raRead morenge of equipment not our taste, more flea market than Luxury. Didnt want to store my cloths in old crates so lived out of case on lounge floor. Hide

Loved our stay at this beautiful barn - clawfoot bath, nespresso machine, big tv, underfloor heating, comfy bed: all combined to make us feel cosy and treated. A real sense of being in nature away from it all, but plenty of places and things to do a quick drive away.

The barn is very unique and quirky and the owner is lovely. Very peaceful and a good central location. Great local pubs with excellent food. We enjoyed our stay but found the look of the barn was given more focus than the practicality and comfort especially with the lighting and the sofa. Overall a lovely place.

The Blackbird Barn is absolutely gorgeous! Whilst we were there it rained the entire time but it didn't matter because we had everything we needed at the barn. We had such a relaxing time.

As described, the barn was quirky but certainly not luxury as described on the website. Very few facilities with no dishwasher or microwave to make life easier on holiday. Lovely comfy bed, but the bedroom itself a bit of a challenge. Very nice bath/shower room.

It is a wonderful location to relax from working from home lockdown for many months. Outside space is just as required, great for reading and listening to birdsong.
