Beautiful location perfect for stag do, shame about the bathroom

  • 4 of 5

One of the best views in the Wye Valley. The bunkhouse has an unenviable view down the Wye Valley, and the hosts (who live in the adjoining building) were helpful throughout with good communication. They are in the process of building a gamesroom extension to the house, which will increase the indoor areas, but the weather was amazing so we were able to chill outside with the view. We order a full English breakfast to be prepared by them which was great and they tidied up after. All the bunk bed were clean and tidy. The only slight issue was that the drain in one of the wet rooms was clogged and the kitchen tap stopped working for a few hours on the Sunday morning. They also have three friendly dogs who like to meet the guests, all good natured and looking for friends (and bacon). Would recommend, thanks Claire, Rob and Fiona

An amazing weekend in an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 19 friends stayed in Harthill Grange Bunkhouse for the weekend of my 21st birthday. It is a fantastic building, with everything we needed. The communal space was wonderful for socialising and we all slept very well in the bunkbeds. We had the catered BBQ and cooked breakfast, which was delicious and the caterer was absolutely great. Claire was extremely helpful before, during and after our stay and gave us directions for a beautiful walk to Tintern Abbey and up to Devil's Pulpit which we thoroughly enjoyed. Overall, we had an incredible weekend in a beautiful location and the bunkhouse was absolutely fabulous. Thank you so much!

21st birthday celebration weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter had the most wonderful weekend celebrating her 21st birthday with friends from Uni. They had an amazing BBQ on the Friday evening, enjoyed a beautiful walk to Devil's Pulpit followed by a fun party with family joining in on the Saturday. Harthill Grange produced a fantastic cooked breakfast to complete the weekend on the Sunday morning. We are so grateful to Claire who was incredibly flexible when it looked as though they might get snowed in. Fortunately everyone made it safely home after the most perfect weekend. Many thanks - we would highly recommend the property.

Great Country Getaway for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time here over New Years. Plenty of activities and a great space. We ordered a Tesco delivery for the day we arrived which was a great idea. The owners were extremely helpful. The living area is pretty tight for 20 people but if you're spending most of your time outdoors it shouldn't matter too much! I would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Service

  • 5 of 5

Although we sadly needed to cancel our stay due to family illness before the day, the team at Harthill were very understanding and friendly throughout. While booking they really went above and beyond to help as I knew little about the area and they were able to help me with taxi's for a large group, activities and local knowledge. I came to visit the property and it really is kept in great shape. I'm honestly hoping to come back here in the near future and enjoy the beautiful scenery and Harthill will be my first choice.

Also, great dogs.

A practical beautiful property set amongst a stunning backdrop.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a lovely stay, everyone had a great time with some enjoying the active side of the holiday whilst others took the time out to relax in the beautiful surroundings. Rob was very helpful and always on hand to help with car parking, directions, essential baby equipment etc. Nothing was too much trouble. The chef cooked in house for us - tasty food and good value too. We chose to do rock climbing and abseiling and it was brilliant to have it all arranged for us - if you choose to drive yourselves take plenty of change for the car park. The actual climbing was pitched at just the right level, everyone was challenged and had fun too.

One thing we would have liked was blinds on the windows in the bedrooms and a bit of privacy in the showers - 2 open showers in each bathroom.

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable weekend in a great place that I would certainly recommend to others and I would love to return and try out some of the other activitites one day. Thank you!
