I know there are a lot of 5s here but once you visit you will see why.. say goodbye to the everyday rat race and enjoy the peace.. light pollution is in high regard so you are asked to switch off unused lights and you will be glad you did to see the view above.. many thanks to those who made our stay comfortable and memorable..

100% recommend the Hive! It's a beautiful cabin kept to a very high standard with a lovely comforting feel to it. There is everything you could possibly need while there and not far from the village of Kington which has all local amenities. Surrounded by woodland the Hive is the perfect retreat and we loved every second of our stay. Peter and Jo arRead moree great and where at the end of the phone for anything we needed. Hide
