|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
Cadbury Barn was part of the milking parlour when we were dairy farmers and the milk went to Cadbury's factory in Leominster, hence the name. It sleeps 6 people and offers comfortable spacious living.
There is a porch which then leads into the large well equipped kitchen, with dining table and seating area with TV freeview & ipod dock. The main bedroom is double/zip & link with en suite bathroom, shower overhead.
Utility room. There are 2 further bedrooms 1 king and a twin with shared bathroom with large shower & loo.
There is an additional dining table available if you should want to seat 12, making Cadbury Barn & The Roller Mill excellent properties to book together.
There is covered parking for 2 cars with plenty of additional parking available. Cadbury Barn is separated from The Roller Mill by 4 parking bays & are both quite private from each other.
The property is enclosed & there is a patio area with hard wood furniture & a new 8 seater HOT TUB
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.
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
Cordelia Niblett purchased this cottage in 1949
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.
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
This is a beautiful part of the world, made more wonderful by the care and attention to detail shown by Cordelia and her family at Brook House Farm.
The Cadbury Barn is modern and spacious holiday accommodation that we would have no hesitation in returning to. We have four kids (only three with us this time) aged 1, 4, 13 and 16 and the Cadbury Barn is more than big enough to house us all in comfort. The open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area is great for everyone to get together and the hot tub is a genius addition. This keeps kids of all ages happy. My 16 year old son and I sat in the hot tub watching the rugby whilst my 4 year old daughter splashed about in the bubbles.
The bedrooms are big enough (we had our 1 year old in a travel cot in our room) with plenty of wardrobe space. The en-suite would be nicer with a shower rather than a shower over the bath, but this is just personal preference. We all showered in the other bathroom with the double shower. The bath was good for the baby though.
The under-floor heating ensured that it was constantly comfortable even though it was very cold outside (as does the hot tub), and to top it all off, my daughter had a ride in the tractor to see the cows with Cordelia's husband. Being a working farm makes this a real homely environment and I suspect that in the warmer months this would be a real gem for groups of all ages and sizes.
