Set in the heart of a working family farm, this tasteful barn conversion is in prime location for walking, cycling and touring many local attractions. It is built mainly from local stone, with wood cladding, double glazing and oil central heating throughout. The cottage has it's own garden complete with patio (and furniture) and built-in BBQ, with room for 3 cars. During the winter months why not sit and relax in front of the large open fire, whilst watching a 42inch TV!
The Simcock family have been at Green Farm since 1918, with current owners Cyril and Shirley on site for 25 years.
We are busy farmers, but take pride in personally greeting all guests, willing to chat and explain what is happening on the farm. We have 4 children, 22, 21, 18 and 14. 3 working sheep dogs and 3 "pet" dogs, only one (Bill) is allowed to wander around without us (although they are extremely friendly!)
Shirley Simcock purchased this cottage in 1919
The Simcock family have been at Green Farm since 1918, with current owners on site for 25 years. The cottage is set in the heart of the farmyard, but guests tell us they are not aware of this when staying, as it is peaceful and rural. We are less than a mile from A417, but you can not hear any traffic. Beautiful walks all around, with a picturesque Church at the tip of the garden!
Green Farm Cottage is ideally situated for exploring Herefordshire and its surrounding counties. We are midway between Hereford / Bromyard, Leominster / Ledbury, and just 30 minutes drive into Wales.
Accommodates 6 adults with ease. Very welcoming and friendly, Bill the 500 year old collie is a bundle of joy and would pop round for a scratch and a rub down from time to time. The kitchen has all the utensils you would need to prepare and serve up a great meal for 10+ guests if need be. Although a working farm the noise levels were kept to a minimal at sleep times during our stay so a big thank you. Having an after dinner stroll around the farm, seeing the baby lambs and calves taking a peek in the small church up the road just added to a relaxing experience. You would have a 20/30min walk to the nearest pub/shop but if you plan ahead as we did there would be no need (we took plenty of food with us). There are plenty of things to do if you plan a drive out and about and there is a basket in the lounge stacked with leaflets of places and things to do in the area.
All in all, a great time was had by all and once again a very big thank you!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful home made cake and the best tasting eggs
Lovely hosts - nothing too much trouble and very obliging and helpful. Lovely farm and the cottage is well positioned and well appointed. Would recommend to anyone wishing to enjoy the countryside.
Three generations got together to enjoy Green Farm cottage. As we visited in the October we were really pleased by the warmth not only of the cottage but by our welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for the Simcock family and we loved watching the calves being fed. It is a working farm and so expect the odd tractor or lorry noise. The farm is an ideal center for touring and Hereford and Worcester are within easy reach as are several National trust properties.
Wonderful to be in the middle of the Herefordshire countryside with a warm and welcoming host family
We needed a cottage near Worcester for the Easter weekend. There were 6 of us, two couples and two singles. This 3 bedroom remodeled barn fit the bill perfectly! The master bedroom is huge with a queen, a twin and a crib if needed, along with it's own bathroom. There was another bedroom with I believe a double and then the third bedroom with two twin beds. There was another bath room upstairs, and then there was a handicap accessible bathroom on the first floor. There was a lift on the stairs for anyone who might need it. The kitchen and dining area were large and very homey. All appliances worked well. Living room was large with a wood burning fireplace and seating for at least 8. Shirley met us when we pulled in and showed us around the whole place. She told us to turn up the thermostat up as much as we needed to be warm. This is a working farm, so expect to hear a few moo's and baa's during your stay. All in all it worked out great for all in our party. We would definitely stay here again. If you do stay, be sure and bring a treat for retired sheep dog Bill !
