About the property

Felton, Hereford - Rural setting, but within easy reach of local attractions

Set in the heart of a working family farm, this tasteful barn conversion is in prime location for walking, cycling and touring many local attractions. It is built mainly from local stone, with wood cladding, double glazing and oil central heating throughout. The cottage has it's own garden complete with patio (and furniture) and built-in BBQ, with room for 3 cars. During the winter months why not sit and relax in front of the large open fire, whilst watching a 42inch TV!

About Shirley Simcock

The Simcock family have been at Green Farm since 1918, with current owners Cyril and Shirley on site for 25 years.

We are busy farmers, but take pride in personally greeting all guests, willing to chat and explain what is happening on the farm. We have 4 children, 22, 21, 18 and 14. 3 working sheep dogs and 3 "pet" dogs, only one (Bill) is allowed to wander around without us (although they are extremely friendly!)

Shirley Simcock purchased this cottage in 1919

Why Shirley Simcock chose West Midlands

The Simcock family have been at Green Farm since 1918, with current owners on site for 25 years. The cottage is set in the heart of the farmyard, but guests tell us they are not aware of this when staying, as it is peaceful and rural. We are less than a mile from A417, but you can not hear any traffic. Beautiful walks all around, with a picturesque Church at the tip of the garden!

What makes this cottage unique

Green Farm Cottage is ideally situated for exploring Herefordshire and its surrounding counties. We are midway between Hereford / Bromyard, Leominster / Ledbury, and just 30 minutes drive into Wales.

fantastic property would stay again

  • 5 of 5

Accommodates 6 adults with ease. Very welcoming and friendly, Bill the 500 year old collie is a bundle of joy and would pop round for a scratch and a rub down from time to time. The kitchen has all the utensils you would need to prepare and serve up a great meal for 10+ guests if need be. Although a working farm the noise levels were kept to a minimal at sleep times during our stay so a big thank you. Having an after dinner stroll around the farm, seeing the baby lambs and calves taking a peek in the small church up the road just added to a relaxing experience. You would have a 20/30min walk to the nearest pub/shop but if you plan ahead as we did there would be no need (we took plenty of food with us). There are plenty of things to do if you plan a drive out and about and there is a basket in the lounge stacked with leaflets of places and things to do in the area.

All in all, a great time was had by all and once again a very big thank you!!

Owner's Response: Ah thanks guys for the review, we aim to please everyone that stays with us, and as you say it is a working farm but we do try our upmost to keep the working noise levels to a minimum when you are on holiday! Bill is very friendly, but hopefully not a pain! but he sure does love all the attention. It is great to know that you found the kitchen well stocked with utensils, we are always keen to know if we are missing anything to accommodate your culinary skills whilst on holiday. Hopefully we will see you again soon.

The cottage had everything you could possibly want and was warm and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Three generations got together to enjoy Green Farm cottage. As we visited in the October we were really pleased by the warmth not only of the cottage but by our welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for the Simcock family and we loved watching the calves being fed. It is a working farm and so expect the odd tractor or lorry noise. The farm is an ideal center for touring and Hereford and Worcester are within easy reach as are several National trust properties.
