Overview

About the property

Luxury Barn Conversion in Tranquil Village.Stunning Views. Lake, Nature Reserve and Michelin Star Pub in Village

The Barn at Titley, graded 5 star by Visit England standards, is a stunning Grade 2 listed modern barn conversion with beautiful oak and slate floors and an abundance of ancient oak beams. Stylishly furnished in boutique-hotel style it blends both the traditional and the contemporary and provides a relaxing base for those seeking a tranquil setting for their holiday. It is ideally based for Hay-on-Wye, Ludlow, Hereford, the lovely Wye Valley and the Brecon Beacons. Wifi is provided.

The open-plan living area has a dramatic vaulted ceiling with gallery overlooking it. The sofa is Làura Ashley with lamps by Oka. The bespoke sycamore kitchen is very well equipped with professional pans, food processors and blenders for your holiday smoothies and we have cookery books to browse. Overlooking the courtyard you will see the house martins and other birds flit around the barns as you cook.

Both bedrooms have four-poster beds - traditional and contemporary - and crisp white linen and proper pillows! Underfloor heating and goose down duvets mean you will be cosy in the cooler months. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom lined with travertine tiles. The second room has a wet room with a great power shower.

There are two seating areas - our private garden to the front of the house with a patio and lawned area. This overlooks open fields and hills. There is seating for 4. To the rear is the communal courtyard, with table and chairs for 4, which is a sun-trap and perfect for breakfasts outdoors. You can sit here on a warm day and listen to the gentle creaking of the barns.

There is a hidden gem of a nature reserve with glacial pools just down the lane where you can walk or picnic in the meadows (we provide the picnic basket and rug) full of wild-flowers or watch the rich bird-life from the hide overlooking the lake. The Stagg with its Michelin guide restaurant (Dining Pub 2018 in Good Pub Guide and 15 years of Michelin stars ) is just around the corner so you can be assured of an excellent meal - or you can just call in for a drink and chat with the locals. Be sure to book as it is very popular!

The barn is our own holiday home and furnished and equipped to a high standard and we hope our guests will appreciate all the little touches we have made to ensure a very comfortable holiday.

Canoeing,kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding are available at Whitney-on-Wye near Hay.

We have discount vouchers avaible for a lovely spa in Kington. Our adult guests are also able to use the club house at Kington Golf Club -the highest golf course in England - with sensational views over many surrounding counties.

This is walking country and trails abound with Offa's Dyke, the Mortimer trail which Titley is on and the Brecon Beacons.

About Christine Fisher and Terry Gladwin

Terry is an Architect and Christine works with children from deprived backgrounds. We live in Warwickshire but really love having breaks at The Barn. Herefordshire is such a beautiful and unspoilt county and the Welsh Marches have stunning scenery, great food and lovely gardens.

Christine Fisher and Terry Gladwin purchased this barn in 2013

Why Christine Fisher and Terry Gladwin chose Titley

Titley is a really special village with the nature reserve, glacial lakes and walks on the Mortimer trail - not to mention the wonderful Stagg gastro-pub with its Michelin star which all our guests love! The nature reserve and lakes are tucked away behind the barn and is such a magical place - we have never seen anyone else there when we have visited so it's like having our own private reserve with unploughed meadows and rich birdlife and wild flowers!

What makes this barn unique

The Barn is on a small private estate with several other barns, overlooking open country and hills. We were completely seduced by the quality of the finishes - beautiful oak flooring and staircases with a stunning gallery opening into the eaves - which really has the "wow" factor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a perfect stay in this beautiful and tastefully decorated barn. Fantastic first impressions - everything was such good quality and a lot of time and effort has been made to make The Barn a very special place. The property is very well equipped down to a ready to go picnic basket and binoculars. I loved the toy hedgehog ready to greet us. There is lovely under floor heating, hot water bottles and en suite bathrooms are fitted to a very high standard. Thank you for a lovely weekend - we will definitely recommend The Barn to everyone we know". Nov. 13



"Beautiful spacious barn in a tranquil and peaceful setting - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay" - our very first guests - Aug. 13.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The Barn is our own holiday home and is furnished to the standard of our own home and not as a holiday let. We hope our guests will love it as much as we do! For the Christmas period we decorate the barn beautifully inside and out with a large tree, wreaths and rustic swags. Please note that mobile phone access is usually possible but variable - as in much of Herefordshire. Internet access is available. Outside: There are two sitting out areas which between them catch the sun all day long. At the front of the barn is a small private garden with lawn, a flower bed with box, lavender and annuals and a paved patio with dining table and chairs. From here you can relax after a hard day's sightseeing or walking and look out over the surrounding hills and forests. At the rear of the barn is a wooden table, bench and chairs overlooking the large communal courtyard and other barns. This is a morning sun spot and is perfect for breakfasts al fresco. On a warm day you can listen to the gentle creaking of the barns and watch the house martins and swifts swoop around the barns. Both areas are planted with e.g. box, standard bay trees and annuals. There is a small barbeque. Utility Room: The washing machine is integrated in the kitchen. The usual laundry facilities are provided. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen included with a change of linen provided weekly for guests staying more than one week. Other: The gallery under the eaves, overlooking the sitting area, is a great space for chilling out or a quiet read. A double sofa bed and single trundle bed provide flexibility with sleeping arrangements. (The double bedroom has space for the trundle bed).

Beautiful location and countryside close to Presteigne, which is brilliant for the festival.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and comfortable property in beautiful countryside which is also very close to Ludlow and Presteigne as well as many other delightful villages. A very relaxing stay and easy to get in touch with the owners. The Stagg pub, which does great food, is a few minutes walk away. Would warmly recommend to anyone.

Clean, quiet, lovely views

  • 5 of 5

This is a tastefully converted barn in a beautiful spot. We found it clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Hay-on-Wye festival, the town and all it has to offer is an easy drive and there are plenty of attractions nearby, from National Trust properties to walks around Offa's Dyke. Don't miss the Cider Museum, one of the best 'things to do' in Hereford!
