Little Holme is a family- and pet-friendly spacious 2-bed annexe close to amenities in Eardisley near Hay on Wye.
Little Holme is a spacious 2-bedroom cottage attached to our family home, a traditional timber-framed house built in the fifteenth century. We are in Eardisley, a black-and-white village with two pubs, a café/ second-hand bookshop/ post office, a village shop and a Norman church with a spectacular Romanesque font – all within walking distance.
Eardisley lies in rural North Herefordshire, 15 miles north-west of Hereford, making this an ideal base from which to explore the historic towns and beautiful countryside of the Welsh borders – including the Wye Valley, Hay on Wye (15 mins), Kington and Hergest Ridge (10 mins), the Brecon Beacons National Park (25 mins), Leominster (20 mins), Hereford (25 mins). The foodie town of Ludlow, with its fine castle, church and Georgian architecture, is only 45 minutes’ away. There are three Nature Reserves within walking distance of the village, a network of footpaths for hikers and dog walkers, and country lanes to explore by bike. A local bus service connects the village with Hereford and Almeley.
Local attractions include the Small Breeds Farm Park and Owl Centre near Kington, Monkton Cheese dairy and shop, the Judge’s Lodging in Presteigne, traditional cider makers (including Gwatkins, Olivers and Orgasmic), Oakchurch Farm Shop, National Trust property Berrington Hall, Hay on Wye Town of Books, the black-and-white villages of Weobley and Pembridge, Hergest Croft Gardens in Kington. Outdoor activities include canoeing/ kayaking on the River Wye, wild swimming at nearby Bredwardine, pony trekking, and quad biking, paintball and high ropes at Oaker Wood Leisure. Kington Golf Club on Bradnor Hill is England’s highest 18-hole course, playable all year.
Little Holme is newly renovated and fully equipped for families and couples looking to explore the local area. The property is south-facing and has central heating with double-glazing. Downstairs comprises a spacious sitting-room/ diner with wood-burner, fully-fitted kitchen (also with seating), WC and hallway. Upstairs are two bedrooms (a spacious double with large walk-in wardrobe, and a comfortable twin room), a WC/ shower room and landing. The property stands on a quiet side road/ lane, with gated, off-street parking for two cars.
Other amenities provided in the property include: dishwasher, washing machine and clothes airer, oven/hob, microwave, travel cot, baby bath, stair gate and high chair, books to read, children’s toys, games, a chess set and a variety of DVDs, along with freesat TV/radio.

We run local publishing company Logaston Press from the main house, and Little Holme is equipped with an extensive library of Logaston Press publications about the local area, including walks guides, for use during your stay (with copies available for purchase).
Up to two dogs are welcome, but pets are not allowed on the furniture or upstairs, and should not be left alone in the house. Dogs need to be child-friendly or appropriate warnings need to be given. A large plastic dog bed and dog bowls are available on request.
Little Holme is attached to our family home, and you may encounter us or our children from time to time – for example in the garden, which serves the main house. However, we are a friendly bunch and will do all to ensure a peaceful and relaxing stay. We look forward to meeting you and very much hope that you enjoy your stay with us.
