4Cottages in Yarpole, Herefordshire - Peaceful Location, 3 Minutes Walk To Pub & Surrounded In Countrysid
Our 4 barns are converted to a high standard. Each with underfloor heating, all the mod cons, private gardens with furniture. They have a shared games room with table football, ping pong & pool table. Yarpole is a very pretty village in North Herefordshire bordering Shropshire. To the south we have the market town of Leominster just 4 miles away, a lovely town to explore, especially for the antique shop lovers. To the north, 5 miles away, we have Ludlow, with its reputation for fine food & dining. Both have farmers markets and a wealth of history. We are very lucky to have 2 wonderful National Trust properties very close. Croft Castle and Berrington Hall are both well worth a visit. This is an ideal location for families with young children. The whole site is safe for the very young to have fun & play with no worries of any traffic. We have a selection of ride on toys (or bring your own) & they will love to see the animals & have ride on a tractor.

About the Owner
We are the Niblett family. David & Cordelia & children, Eleanor 11, Bertie 9 & Oscar 7. The Niblett family have farmed in Herefordshire since 1947. It has gone through various changes over the years but recently we have taken the opportunity to develop the redundant stone & brick barns into the 4 holiday barns, which we are very proud of. Property reference E3091.
We bought the apartment in Les Carroz because of our love for skiing and have had many happy holidays there over the years and also discovered how beautiful it is in the summer too. Property reference FR23934

We had a great weekend stay here at The Granary. The converted barn was beautiful with everything you need to make a stress free stay. Very clean, comfortable and perfectly child friendly. We were a group of mums with kiddies - ages ranging from 6mths to 6yrs so staying somewhere that was safe and friendly was top of our list. Cordelia and David were great hosts, the chocolate brownies went down a treat (with the mums, sorry kids) but the kids enjoyed a tractor ride courtesy of David round the farm. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking, Croft Castle a 5min drive away was a great visit especially for the kiddies to let off steam. All in all we had a fab stay and will be returning next year.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Granary. It was perfect for our party of 4 Mums and 8 children ! All of the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Beautiful living area with an excellently furnished kitchen (I wanted to take it home with me !). Cordelia and David were very friendly and accomodating, nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to show the children around on the farm. The children loved the farm and Games Room. The welcome plate of chocolate brownies were superb. All in all a fabulous weekend, can't wait to go back next year !
From the Owner
“In 1947 when the farm was bought Mrs Niblett senior did not like the farm & the house, she thought it was a shame to be on the edge of the village & not surrounded by countryside. We are now so grateful it is where it is, on the edge of such a pretty village with our beautiful farm land the other, it could not be better. We are on the north Herefordshire/shropshire boarder. With Ludlow to the north & Leominster to the south, both very different towns but both charming. We have 2 NT properties locally & a huge number of walks of all levels, to suit the amblers or the ramblers. It is a quite location, but the hustle of a town is never far away.”

From the Owner
“The 4 properties are situated on our farm, not far from our farmhouse or from each other. The village of Yarpole has an excellent pub & in the church there is a shop & cafe run by locals. The village has a great sense of a happy community and bursting with friendly people. Our farm is at the end of a lane with a big yard which is very safe & secure particularly if you have small children to keep up with. We have a lovely games room with ping pong, table football/air hockey & pool. We do use it too, but you get priority. It is heated by a wood burner, making it very cosy. 3 of the barns have all weather hot tubs, hours of entertainment for all ages. The benefit of having the 4 properties is that we can sleep up to 31 people with lots of space for everyone”
