CASTLE CLIFFE EAST - 13TH CENTURY WATERGATE OF HEREFORD CASTLE

Hereford House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Sleeps six people.

Located on the banks of the River Wye, in the historic Cathedral city of Hereford, Castle Cliffe has been restored to provide luxury self-catering holiday accommodation for six people. Though medieval in origin, the house now boasts night storage central heating and open fires in all rooms, period furniture throughout and a four-poster bed. Spread over 2 floors, the accommodation includes a fully fitted kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and separate WC on the ground floor, with three double bedrooms and another WC on the first floor. Bedroom 1 has a king-size four-poster bed, bedroom 2 has a double bed and bedroom 3 has two single beds. The house is within walking distance of pubs, restaurants, shops, cinema and the theatre. The house also has south-facing riverside gardens and is surrounded by parkland. Castle Cliffe is a great place to relax with friends and family and to use as a base for exploring the beautiful countryside, mountains, castles and abbeys of this Welsh Border Region.

Hereford City Centre: History is almost tangible in the centre of Hereford, and nowhere more so than in the area surrounding Castle Cliffe. Having been occupied for over 700 years, the old watergate of Hereford Castle has not only seen its own use changed. Castle Green, once the site of battles, is now a city park on the banks of the River Wye. Surrounded by Hereford Cathedral, the old castle moat and Bishop's Meadow, you would not believe you were only three minutes walk from High Town and its busy shopping streets.

An Historic House: Castle Cliffe is the last remaining part of the Hereford Castle complex. Built during 13th century, it was originally the watergate for the main castle - a very grand entrance to an important castle, the original arch can be seen in the front garden. It has had a colourful history since those days, having been used as a Bridewell (local prison), the Govenor's Lodge and becoming a private residence sometime during the 18th century.

A Modern Holiday: The East House of Castle Cliffe has been lovingly restored by the present owners to provide luxury self catering holiday accommodation for parties of up to six people. With its own private south facing garden on the River Wye and its accessibility to the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains, Hay-on Wye, Tintern Abbey to name but a few, Castle Cliffe is an ideal holiday home. Please note, the owners live in the West House, but assure you of your privacy.

I dont' really want to big up this place, because it will get overbooked and we will never get in again, however, it has to be done. You're in the middle of a city, but you could be miles in the country, very welcoming. I judge a place by it's beds and linen, and this is more comfortable than my own, which takes some doing. Lovely crisp linen, and proper (feather) duvet and pillows. It has a beautiful setting, sitting in the garden, by the river eating breakfast and so quiet. We could have had open fires, but it was too warm, and the storage heaters kept off any chill. Interesting period furniture, stunning curtains, lovely towels and every toy you need in the period styled kitchen. Don't book it your knees can't do stairs, there's a few down to the garden. Loved it and will go back.

My family consisting of three teenagers and husband stayed here for the mid term break in October 2010. We are very fussy when renting holiday lets and book well in advance to achieve what we want. This house ticked all the boxes and we were very pleased with our choice.
Phil was very helpful and courteous to deal with and will go the extra mile with advice re the surrounding area of Hereford.
The website was very accurate in its description and the ammenities it provided. There even was wifi provided which enabled my two daughters contact with friends at home.
I would have no hesitation in reccommending this wonderful house and its environment.It is within walking distance of the catherdal and Hereford itself

I visted Castle Cliffe for 4 nights with a friend in May 2007 and loved it. Great decor (antiques - which we like). Superb huge, lofty, Victorian style dining kitchen overlooking river with every conceivable utensil you might require. Lovely cosy sitting room where we watched dvds in the evening. And spacious, traditionally furnished bedrooms, again overlooking river. Lovely well-tended garden.

Charming little market town with historic centre where we just "pottered" happily. Lovely riverside walks. VERY relaxing.
Fabulous location on river and just a short walk to the Cathedral Close which we haunted on a daily basis (it also has a good cafe and outdoor picnic area).

Can't praise the house, or its owners enough. Thanks for a relaxing break.
