This property near Presteigne, offers self catering holiday accommodation with a wonderful sense of history in a peaceful and relaxing setting. The house is a fine example of a small Tudor Manor House located in the tiny hamlet of Discoed.
Enjoying far-reaching views across the Lugg valley and a stone’s throw from Offa’s Dyke, it is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and is well placed for exploring the towns and villages of the Welsh Marches. This charming, carefully restored historic house sleeps six.
The property borders a courtyard of stone and oak barns and, beyond them, the tiny church of St Michael’s. With an inglenook fireplace, flagstone floors and furnished with period furniture, this special house provides the opportunity to stay in a truly historic environment, but with the benefit of modern conveniences such as hot water, central heating and squishy sofas.
Summer drinks and barbeques can be enjoyed by the raised lily pond with its koi and golden carp and views beyond the rose-clad pergola and herbaceous border to farmland and the foothills of the Cambrian mountains.
Note: St Michael’s Church, recently restored, is also available for hire and provides a wonderful resource for events, rehearsing, performing and recording chamber music.
This stunning property offers extremely comfortable accommodation for up to six people. With flag-stoned or oak floors, each room in the house is highly individual and furnished with a mixture of antiques and examples of John Nethercott’s furniture – restored or made in one of the barns that house his workshops across the courtyard. Hot water and central heating are provided by the oil-fired Rayburn. No smoking in the house, please.
