The Firs holiday cottage
Located in a quiet valley high in the Black Mountains, The Firs makes an ideal base for exploring the Herefordshire/Welsh borders.
For outdoor enthusiasts, the area provides some great walking straight from the door including the Offa's Dyke footpath which runs along the ridge above the cottage. For nature lovers, the Olchon Valley, an area of special scientific interest, has a profusion of birds, plants and animals, some rare and with no light pollution is a great place for star gazing.
If your idea of a holiday is more relaxed then there is plenty to see in the area, including Hay on Wye, with its second hand book and antique shops, Abergavenny and the spectacular ruins of Llanthony Abbey, five miles to the south.
Suited to couples, families or groups and pets are welcome.
The Firs sleeps up to seven and has:
two double bedrooms
one twin room (adjoins one of the double rooms)
a cot which we can put up for your arrival if you let us know in advance if you need it.
All bed linen, pillows and duvets are provided but please bring your own towels.
In addition there is a shower room with a toilet and an airing cupboard from which the oil fired central heating is operated, providing year round warmth.
The open plan living/dining area is comfortably furnished with a sofa, chairs and lamps and a wood burning stove set in an inglenock fireplace for cosy evenings in.
You will find a flat screen TV (with Freesat), a DVD player and a digital radio. The large dining table at the other end of the room, seats eight comfortably.
The kitchen is fully equipped to cater for up to eight people and has:
crockery, cutlery and glasses.
Just off the kitchen is the porch, where the wood for the stove is stored and plenty of space for coats, shoes and wellies.
Downstairs there is also a family bathroom, with a toilet, bath and sink.
The Firs is surrounded by fields and mountains and has its own enclosed south facing garden to sit in to admire the view. Wooden garden furniture, parasol and a barbecue are provided.
You are welcome to explore the fields surrounding the cottage, which run down to the Olchon brook. If you bring your pets please keep them under control as there are usually sheep around (and occasionally the farmer!).
There is also plenty of space for parking and turning cars.
Price includes all wood, oil and electricity, so there are no hidden extras. Well behaved pets are welcome for a small extra charge.
