The place

It might be a simple name, but it’s an extravagantly beautiful space. Perched between the Black Mountains and Hereford, A Frame is one of three incredible spaces at The Fold. It’s perfect for couples looking to adventure in the area, in search of the many foodie destinations, mountain climbs, scenic hikes and outdoor pursuits nearby. But at the same time, it’s also the ideal spot to hunker down for a few days and enjoy a slower pace of life. Wake up to sunlight bursting through the windows and take a morning wander down by the stream or through the 18 acres of land with the dog, then come back to an outdoor shower for the freshest feeling you can imagine. Whether you’ve put in a hard day’s exertion or done nothing at all, relaxing back at A Frame is almost too easy when you can finish up in a hot tub under the stars.

In the neighbourhood

  • You’re just five or so miles from the Anglo-Welsh border here, almost midway between Hereford and Hay-on-Wye, which makes it uniquely placed to explore this amazing part of the UK. A half hour’s drive away, there’s The Cat’s Back, an incredible walk to take on with a dog, not only for its five-mile stretch of the legs but also for its breathtaking views
  • Venture out to Hereford for plenty to see and even more to do. Inside the city’s confines, there are several parks, woodlands, and nature reserves where you can take your four-legged friend for a walk. If you’re looking to shop, there are over ten different shops around Butter Market that allow dogs to visit and the city itself has many dog-friendly eateries. Pop to De Koffie Pot for your caffeine, The Beefy Boys for burgers that might just bring you to tears of joy, The Den if you fancy classic English fare, La Madeleine for French, or The Spread Eagle or the Volunteer Inn if you fancy pub food. All dog friendly!
  • If you’re going to visit Hay-on-Wye, it’s best to think in advance, because no matter how small the town is, somehow, you never manage to fit it all in. It’s home to the highest bookshops-to-people ratio anywhere in the world, so if you’re an avid reader, you can spend many an hour whiling away time in that unique book smell. Foodies will rejoice at the options on hand, with The Old Electric Shop, which combines good food and vintage wares you won’t be able to resist. You could visit Richard Booths Bookshop Café for just a simple pick-me-up cuppa and cake, if you’re in the mood for a pit-stop or, if you’re aiming for something a little heartier, there’s Tomatitos Tapas Bar for fine Spanish cuisine and an excellent range of wines
  • You’re just outside the Brecon Beacons National Park and the hundreds of miles of hikes through unbelievably beautiful scenery and soaring Welsh mountains. Whilst there are plenty of hikes to take, whether you’re taking on some flatter walks or some epic peaks, like Pen y Fan or Fan Brycheiniog, the two largest peaks in the Brecon Beacons – there’s actually more to do than just walking. You can horse ride (on trained horses, not those that roam free), go fishing and take bike tours
  • In the opposite direction to the Brecon Beacons, there’s the Wye Valley AONB, which is crammed full of things to do. The Wye Valley is beyond scenic, with its incredible woodland, sweeping landscapes and rolling hills – not to mention a beautiful river, of course. There’s everything you can imagine doing out here when it comes to outdoor pursuits. One of our favourites has to be dog-friendly canoeing and Stand Up Paddleboarding, so, your four-legged friend can join in, as long as they’re well-behaved!
  • One activity that we couldn't not mention is dog-friendly pottery throwing! It may be an hour’s drive, but you don't want to miss the unique experience of crafting a food bowl alongside your best friend
