Litmarsh Farm is self catering converted from a former cider barn where Symonds Cider originated in 1727, we have two spacious traditional black and white self catering cottages providing quality, comfortable, contemporary styling in a beautiful rural setting, a great place to relax and unwind.
Situated away from the main roads but only 7 miles from the historic city of Hereford, both cottages sleep 4.
Refurbished throughout to a high standard, well equipped, comfy pocket sprung beds and quality linen and towels. Enjoy your own private courtyard area with rattan sofas and tables for alfresco dining together with large beautifully kept gardens and ample parking right outside your front door.
We have many lovely walks on our doorstep, past lakes, woods and alongside the River Lugg. There is a good local country pub nearby with real ale and good food. We are also well placed for local golf courses, National Trust properties such as Berrington Hall, open gardens, black and white Herefordshire villages, food and folk festivals.
You will love the idyllic rural location close to the market towns of Hereford, Leominster and Bromyard and within easy travelling distance of Ludlow, Worcester, Malvern and The Marches with Stratford on Avon, Cheltenham, Birmingham and mid Wales just over an hour away.
We try to think of the little things that will make your stay easier and more enjoyable, for instance we have hairdryers in each bedroom and each cottage has a cool box and picnic sets, and slow cookers. We also try to do our bit for the environment, with solar heated hot water, a wood burner, composting and recycling. Both our cottages are Non Smoking and two small well behaved dogs are welcome.
