Head for the hills…and the dancing daffodils. In the expansive grounds of a 16th-century timber-framed house, this is the perfect retreat à deux. Way up a simple track, your stone-walled, stone-tiled hideaway was built almost entirely from locally reclaimed materials. Inside it's open plan and easy. Settle on the weighty leather chesterfield, toes directed at a wood-burner stacked high with logs from the nearby woods. The kitchen, of hand-crafted oak, has masses of space, a double Belfast sink and proper wooden floorboards throughout. Exposed beams frame the bright bedroom; the shower room is a step away. It would be a treat of an evening to follow the babbling brook through the ancient orchid-dotted woodland, rest awhile at the owner's perfect little treehouse (with hammocks), then retire to your own private viewpoint with its picture-postcard views across open pastures to the Teme and Kyre valleys. Venture further to foodie Ludlow, book-lined Hay-on-Wye and the grand industrial heritage that is Ironbridge. Take to the slow life on the steam railway, stride out on the Mortimer Trail, meander through forgotten Herefordshire villages. Buzzards soar overhead, rabbits scamper in the fields that surround you.
