Why Ali Baker chose Whitney-on-Wye

Whitney Court sits in the heart of the Wye Valley, it has amazing views across the Wye Valley and Herefordshire countryside, beautiful terraced lawns, access to the River Wye and over a 1000 acres of farm and woodland to explore .......

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Stunning views of the Wye valley and beyond from the terrace ....... amazing architecture ...... surrounded by beautiful countryside ...... only minutes away from 'The Town of Books' - Hay on Wye ......

An ideal venue for a quiet break away from it all but within easy distance of many activities

We are located just 10mins east of the historic town of Hay on Wye, famous for it's numerous bookshops, it also has a cinema, great antique shops, lovely cafes, an icecream parlour and castle ruins, which is well worth a visit.

Take a trip out in the car to Capel y Fin for the most stunning views of the countryside .......

Go kayaking with one of our nearby canoe companies, spend an afternoon pony trekking or for those feeling more adventurous try Black Mountains Outdoor Activities.

We are not located far from the well known Black & White Village Trail.

Visit Monkland Cheese Farm to sample wonderful local cheeses......

Hire a bike to explore the local area ....
