Eightlands - step blissfully back in time, with a warmly romantic stay in a thatched Herefordshire village cottage for two.
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

If modern life is getting you down, there’s no better excuse to grab your loved one and spirit yourselves away to the refreshing Herefordshire village of Hampton Bishop.

There you’ll find Eightlands, an exquisite thatched cottage that’s both lovingly reminiscent of past country life, whilst still offering all the contemporary creature comforts you’ll need inside.

This cosy cottage is perfect for two, and from the moment you arrive you’ll know you’ll be staying somewhere special. Careful attention has been paid to the traditionally-styled cottage both inside and out, from the flourishing window boxes full of flowers, to the authentic wooden beams and tasteful décor throughout.

Feel immediately welcome and relaxed as you step through the front door, into a bright open-plan lounge and dining area – complete with signature walls, a warming woodburner and a squishy sofa. You’ll find a selection of books, games and DVDs to help while away all those evenings snuggled up with a glass or two of wine.

You’ll find the stunning kitchen area tucked perfectly into a corner; a snug and well-equipped area to convert even the most defiant non-cook. Then, pad through the narrow doorway to discover a classic all-white shower room – ideal for freshening up after a long day exploring the local area.

An enchanting spiral staircase will lead you to an elegant mezzanine area, with its comfortable double bed and oak furniture surrounded by soft, neutral colours… the ideal setting for lazy lie-ins.

Once you’ve enjoyed a hearty breakfast, why not head out and sample all the fresh village delights of tranquil Hampton Bishop?
