Historic holiday home in Weobley

Featured in The Guardian's 'Fab 50 cool cottages and cabins to rent this summer' and by The Times's Travel Doctor as 'a magnificent house...fit for a king'. 

The Throne is a beautiful, historic house in a picturesque village in rolling countryside.  A huge open plan living area backing onto the original medieval house creates a stunning and relaxed place to stay.  Outside there is a fully enclosed garden with a wide lawn and flower beds.  With 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and generous entertaining space, the Throne is dog friendly, ideal for family gatherings, friend reunions, and special celebrations.  It's also sufficiently homely for a couple or small party to enjoy - there is a 35% discount for up to 6 people using 3 bedrooms or fewer.  

This outstanding Grade II* listed house has a fascinating history.  It was a public house in 17th century and provided Charles I with a bed on 5 September 1645 after the siege of Hereford.   This notable event gave the house its name (and is more recently commemorated in Weobley Brewery's delicious '1645' IPA).   The original Tudor bedrooms, one of which the king slept in, and an even older north wing are home to secret passages, original floorboards, glimpses of wattle and daub and other delightful features showing how the house has evolved.   A specially written guide encourages young (and old) explorers to follow the clues.   

Weobley is the largest and best preserved of the classic black and white villages of Herefordshire.   It was The One Show's 'Village of the Year 2017'.    It has a fine traditional English pub (the Sal'), three excellent places to eat - including two highly-reviewed restaurants which also do takeaways - a butcher, delicatessen and well-stocked village shop.   There are lovely circular walks straight from the house.  It's an easy place to stay without a car and possible to get to by bus from Hereford.

Weobley lies midway between Leominster, Hereford and Hay on Wye - and is a great place for people coming from different parts of the country to meet up.  It's also an ideal base for walking, exploring the Wye Valley, visiting border castles and historic houses, churches and gardens, National Trust properties, the cathedral city of Hereford, medieval towns of Leominster and Ludlow, and the bookshops, art and coffee shops of Hay on Wye.
