Within a 23 mile radius visit the market towns of Leominster, Ludlow, and Hay-on-Wye with their antiques, food, and literary festivals. If you are feeling energetic then head to the local mountain bike trails, River Wye kayaking, and the mountains of the Brecon Beacons.

The barn has retained all its charm whilst offering a luxurious and relaxing stay, offering accommodation across two floors. On the first floor there is an oak beamed, open-plan living space with wood floors and a cosy electric fire, with views east and west over pastures, hedgerows, and woodland, ideal for spotting buzzards and red kites.

Fantastic experience from start to finish, dog friendly! There's a dogwash outside which was super useful! . Plenty of places around the area for walks and lots to explore! A Forest walk on the doorstep with a loop to Croft Castle was a bonus! Highly recommend for a trip away with the dog!

Mortimers Croft is a tranquil haven, we stayed for a weekend and we really enjoyed every minute from relaxing in the hot tub to taking a local walk. We went to Hay on Wye which is well worth a visit. Highly recommend is The Riverside Inn which is a walk though the woods or a short drive away. The cottage guide was all round helpful.
