Montgomery's Coach House (named after one of our sadly departed dogs) is a fully equipped, self-catering holiday home. It is located in the grounds of the Agent's House, originally built for the land agent of the nearby Whitney Court Estate. The owners, who live in the main house, are on hand should you need assistance, but as the property is completely self-contained, you will otherwise be left in peace to enjoy your stay.
We like to think we offer high quality, stylish accommodation in a relaxing rural location. Underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, as well as a wood burner, make the Coach House perfect for a cosy get-away at any time of the year. We also welcome pets and, as dog owners ourselves, do not believe our guests should have to compromise on their holiday property.
The property has its own outside space, including private deck and a grassy area, which is fenced and gated, for use by pet owners.
A stone's throw from the River Wye and in the border lands between Herefordshire in the English West Midlands & Powys in Mid-Wales, we are ideally situated as a touring base for getting to know the picturesque Wye Valley and beyond. We are less than 5 miles from Hay on Wye, the famous bookshop capital, where you will find a variety of small, individual shops, cafes, an ice cream parlour, antique shops, a great deli & a Thursday morning market, to name but a few of its attractions. The annual Hay festival is attended by thousands of visitors, including celebrated authors, thinkers, scientists, musicians and film makers at the end of May/beginning of June. If you intend to visit during this period, please book early to avoid disappointment!
The cathedral city of Hereford, with its renowned chain library and Mappa Mundi, and the market town of Leominster are approximately 15 miles east and north east of Whitney on Wye, respectively. The beautiful town of Ludlow, well known for its high number of reputable eateries is also within easy striking distance by car.
More locally, you can drive along the Herefordshire 'Black and White Trail', a circular route which takes you through a number of villages with pretty houses and churches. There is many an interesting stop-off point for a stroll or refreshment along the way. Throughout the area, there is a growing focus on the 'slow food' movement and great pride is taken in the quality of local produce, such as cheese production, cider farms, chocolate making, micro breweries and, of course, many wonderful cafes, restaurants and pubs to relax and unwind in - the nearest of which is only a two minute walk from your front door! Just a three minute walk away is a farm shop, which also does a very nice line in coffee, home-made cakes, lunches and snacks, as well as a petrol station and general stores. The latest addition to village amenities is a pop-up, take-away food outlet across the road, serving authentic Nepalese and Thai style food six nights a week.
For the energetic, there is a range of activities available within easy reach of Montgomery's Coach House. Walks along Offa's Dyke and the Herefordshire Trail, as well as local trails direct from the house. Hay Bluff, the Black Mountains & Brecon Beacons are just a short drive away. Canoeing along the River Wye is also a great way to spend the day and observe wildlife, we could go on!
