Relaxing retreat in a picturesque and tranquil valley. Natural furnishings in wood, leather and stone are balm for the senses. Animals are amazing and fun to watch. Heated swimming pool a real treat after a few hours walking in the Herefordshire and Welsh hills. Cannot fault it- hope to return.

What a charming property and fantastic location! This was our third visit to the Paddocks, and we really feel at home here. The hospitality is absolutely amazing, and the animals are lovely. We will be back!

It was a great place to stay. We enjoyed every moment. It was quiet and there was plenty to do. Lindsay and Frank where exceptional hosts. They welcomed us with open arms. We enjoyed walking through the 60 acres, especially the ancient woodland where we came across Wild Boar and Deer.
