Yewtree Cottage

Yewtree Cottage is a welcoming, stylish stone dwelling, formally part of the Victorian Manor House next door. It offers high quality accommodation for up to four guests. This delightful cottage opens out onto a private terrace for alfesco dining and sits within the beautiful grounds of Docklow Manor. Guests are welcome to explore the extensive grounds and children may use the tree house, trampoline and table tennis available in the Manor House and grounds. The views west towards the Black Mountains are breath-taking and there are strategically placed benches for enjoying the sunset with a glass of your favourite wine.

Situated in the small hamlet of Docklow in rural North Herefordshire, consisting of scattered dwellings and a pretty church. There are a number of charming, traditional inns, just a short drive away. Footpaths are marked to enjoy the lovely surrounding countryside. This is a truly unspoilt part of rural England, an England of hop fields and apple orchards, of rolling hills, ancient timbered villages and centuries-old churches. Docklow Manor is in the heart of wonderful walking, fishing, horse-riding, cycling and bird-watching country, yet is just five miles from the attractive market town of Leominster. The historic cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester are 20 and 25 miles away respectively. This holiday at a glance
