The DugOut is a very special and unique place to stay and was featured on Channel 4 Grand Designs, 'Herefordshire House'. It is full of quirky and imaginative design features hand made by Ed, from decorative hand cut stone floors to hand carved light fittings and pulley light switches. Enjoy custom printed curtain fabrics and local arts and crafts such as paintings, pottery, weavings and candles by local artists. The DugOut is in a lovely elevated setting and is quiet and peaceful, the perfect place to unwind and relax. It is extremely comfortable and cosy at all times of the year. It has its own private garden with barbeque and firepit, looking out over beautiful views to four counties. We pride ourselves on a tailored provision for our guests' special celebratory occasions. We can provide bouquets of locally grown flowers, artisan hand-made chocolates, home-made cakes and candles and an ice-bucket for your chosen beverage. The DugOut is on a working smallholding with sheep, goats, poultry, pigs and horses. Guests are invited to join us for short workshops in woodcraft and smallholding, allowing guests to get a hands-on experience of life on our hill. An on-site shop selling local fresh, frozen and home-made produce is available exclusively to DugOut guests at all times.
