Luxury Converted Barn in the Heart of Herefordshire.
Situated in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside, The Coach House is a detached converted barn with private and secure garden. It has been sympathetically restored from what was once a working farm building, retaining its many original features throughout. The cottage has been tastefully decorated maintaining a warm ambiance, pledging a comfortable and relaxing break. A garden with flag-stoned patio and dining area complements the accommodation, perfect for warm summer barbecues within attractive views from the surrounding landscape.
The Coach House is charmingly comfortable with lots of character. The kitchen/dining area with oak fitted units can offer seating for 12 people for dining and can be booked with our adjacent cottage, The Oast House (which sleeps six).
The Coach House is situated on a working farm, with 3 acres of shared natural grounds and 135 acres of farmland. Close at hand is the historic market town of Bromyard, known as Herefordshire’s most unspoilt market town with many independent shops, pubs and cafés. Throughout the year it’s home to an array of festivals and interesting events. The Bromyard Downs and Bringsty Common offer wonderful open countryside and are a real hit with walkers both near and far. The popular Downs and the National Trust’s Brockhampton Court are within easy reach. There are many historical places of interest such as museums, churches and gardens nearby. Hereford with its cathedral and Mundi Centre, Malvern, Ludlow and Worcester are just a short drive. There is excellent riding, golf, tennis and fishing nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

About James Barrett
The Coach House forms part of Mintridge, a working family farm which Richard and Sally Barrett have owned since 1997. Mintridge Farmhouse is an attractive period Grade II Listed house, with origins dating from the 1600s. Since owning the farm, Sally and Richard have converted two barns into luxury holiday accommodation: The Oast House and The Coach House. Sally and her mother, Eileen (who lives in the farmhouse) are based on the farm everyday. Sally would be happy to show all of our guests around the working farm, something which proves especially popular with younger guests! We have Limousin cows, Charollais sheep and horses. Sally's mother, Eileen, is also well known for her baking of fresh scones with homemade raspberry jam for guests on arrival!
James Barrett purchased this Barn in 1997

Brilliant in every way
The Coach House really is a wonderful place to relax and get away from the frenetic pace of everyday life. I would absolutely recommend it to anybody and would most certainly return if the opportunity arose.
Second stay, the cottage is beautiful, the farm and surroundings amazing, great weekend thanks 😊
Thanks for a lovely review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Sally
Lovely Holiday Cottage - Highly recommended
Just enjoyed 4 night stay at the Coach House. Sally made us feel very welcome on our arrival and the house it’s self is beautiful and full of character. We had everything we needed and then some. The location is fantastic, we had days out at Eastnor Castle at Ledbury, Hereford, were we did a tour of the Cathedral Tower and we walked the Malvern Hills and visited Upton. We ate out in Bromyard it’s self a couple of times at the Inn at Bromyard and Foxy’s Steak Bar. One night we had a take away from New Jade Garden which was delicious and highly recommended. Thank you Sally for a wonderful few days, hopefully we can visit again soon.
Thanks so much for a lovely review! Glad you had a enjoyable stay. Sally
Fab u lous
Even the English weather could not stop us enjoying this perfectly positioned property. It was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and lots of space. Comfortable and clean, excellent bathrooms and great sofas.
Lovely welcome from Sally with lots of top tips for the area. The Olive Tree Italian was one which we certainly enjoyed .
Great base to discover a Herefordshire!!
Thanks for such a lovely review, glad you enjoyed your stay. Sally.
A little gem
Absolutely first class accommodation. Home from home. Comfy beds and sofas. All the home comforts you could wish for. Beautiful location. We only stayed for a weekend but wished we were there for longer. We will be back.
Thank you for such a lovely review Victoria!
Fantastic Short Break
Although my family and I only stayed for a couple of nights, we thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation and location. Very well presented and well equipped. We had a warm welcome from Sally the owner. We will definitely book again.
Thanks very much, we hope to see you again. Sally.
