The place

The Bridge Farmhouse is exactly what you’re looking for if you want to get away with a group. With room for eight adults, and two extra kids, it’s incredibly spacious, with everything you’d need to keep everyone entertained. It’s right on the Anglo-Welsh border, where Herefordshire melts into the Black Mountains. Daytime might be for running wild with the kids and the dogs, taking on hill climbs, canoe and kayak rides – or exploring local towns and cities for food and culture. But nighttime? When the kids retire to bed, after communal dinners at the large dining table, switch gears and take to tournaments on the table football/table tennis table, look baffled at your partner whilst you play charades by the open fire, or mellow out in the hot tub out the back. Oh, and don't miss the gin distillery and coffee roasters that are on site – where you can visit, go for a tasting, and even learn the ropes!

In the neighbourhood

  • Given its proximity, you’d be hard pressed not to pop into The Bridge Inn, just two minutes walk away! It’s owned by the same owners as this place, and it’s open every day of the week (bar Mondays), and of course, is dog friendly. The menu’s a no-fuss, simple-food-done-well affair, and well worth popping in
  • Wondering where else to dine out? There are quite a few options in this part of the world. You could head out to The Carpenter’s Arms at Walterstone or The Rhydspence Inn in Whitney-on-Wye, both dog friendly. Or you could head to Hay-on-Wye, where there’s The Sandwich Cellar, The Old Electric shop, Tomatitos and many more dog-friendly cafés and restaurants
  • Hay-on-Wye is bustling with culture and life for such a small town, and it’ll become apparent the more you explore it's ancient winding streets. There are 24 bookshops, meaning there’s a bookshop per 100 inhabitants, one of the highest ratios in the world – so an ideal candidate for avid readers! Many of the bookshops allow dogs, so just pop in and check first
  • Looking for activities? Well, you’re in the right place. If it’s an easy day out, then pop to Hay-on-Wye – where you can wild swim at The Warren, a small rocky beach on the banks of the River Wye, or hire canoes – which will even accept well-behaved sea-faring dogs! You could also head out to Hereford itself in search of some retail therapy and culture. Try French cuisine at La Madeleine – well-behaved dogs welcome, or grab a pub lunch at The Spread Eagle, The Volunteer Inn, De Koffie Pot or several other dog-friendly pubs. There’s even a number of shops in Hereford that open their doors to dogs for a spot of shopping, just have a quick google before you go
  • This stretch of green happens to be very close to the Black Mountains, The Cat’s back, and much more, so if you’re looking for walks, you won't be disappointed. There’s the Four Waterfalls Walk (self-explanatory), Pen Y Fan – which scrambles up this 886m mountain, Hay Bluff – which is close to Hay-on-Wye and around a six-mile tromp, Llanthony Priory which is a little shorter at 1-4 miles or even The Begwyns – which is a more reasonable two miles
  • It’s about 45 minutes to the Wye Valley AONB, and all the river adventures you can handle. There are 16 different companies to rent either canoes, kayaks or SUPs (Stand Up Paddleboards) from in the Wye Valley area. It’s a massive stretch of water to explore, working its way from North Wales all the way past Hereford to the River Severn. Best of all, a surprising number of companies are more than happy to let your dog join in!
