Location

Stansbatch, England, United Kingdom

We are fortunate to be surrounded by stunning scenery, walking trails & award winning eating establishments.

The Mortimer trail can be accessed directly from the property, as can the Medieval 2,500 yr old Wapley Hill Fort. On reaching the Fort you can enjoy stunning views of the Malvern Hills and Famous Brecon Beacons. We are also fortunate to be surrounded by an abundance of stunning wildlife. You will almost certainly encounter - pheasants, deer, owls and even the odd turkey in the woods !

The Stag Inn at Titley is just up the road which has won numerous awards over the years, including a Michelin Star. The Cider Barn at Pembridge is also another wonderful Barn to eat at. If you wish to go a little further The Harp Inn at Old Radnor is a typical traditional pub which serves wholesome fare. All the above get very busy we highly recommend booking in advance.

Our names are Claire & Peter. We moved up here in October 2019 and are thoroughly enjoying rural life away from the fast pace of life. We live in the forge and let out what was once the smithy to guests. We are surrounded by the most wonderful countryside and enjoy the most amazing scenery with our two goldies.

During your stay
We live in The Forge, which is attached with a link but the door between is always locked. You have your own front door with lockbox, patio and fenced garden.

The water is on a timer so comes on from 7-9.30 am and 5-9.30.
We leave a small amount of logs free of charge and if you need any extra these can be purchased from us @£3 per bag, these can be used in the log burner and firepit.
We do strive to keep the Smithy sparkling clean but as it’s an old building cobwebs do appear out of nowhere - so I apologise in advance if you find any

We can be on hand to answer any questions but can also give you total privacy. Completely at your discretion

As part of the booking we will provide breakfast items, tea, coffee, muesli, eggs, bread, butter and preserves.
