Cottages in an Orchard
The Old Kennels Farm Holiday Cottages
A quaint group of holiday cottages in the Herefordshire countryside
The Old Kennels Farm is a small family run farm of 24 acres, we have ten acres of traditional Cider apple orchards and every Autumn we harvest the fruit and make our own Cider.
We have six holiday cottages here at the farm, over the years these have been converted from the existing farm buildings. Each cottage is unique to the building it was before and they are all named after varieties of cider apples.
Our farm, with its self catering cottages, is situated on the edge of Ledbury in picturesque Herefordshire. There are many places of historical interest, a variety of public houses and restaurants, a small leisure centre, a swimming pool and a gym.
We are very lucky in Ledbury to have a lovely assortment of small individual shops and two larger supermarkets – one only ½ mile away.
Everything here is within easy walking distance. Our Railway Station is only a 5 minute walk away, with trains to Hereford, Worcester and London Paddington.
We have six cottages here at the Old Kennels Farm. All our cottages vary in size in the hope we have a cottage to suit you. Whether you are a couple looking for a cosy cottage get away or a family looking to explore the three counties please take a look at our selection from the drop down menu above.
Guests per Cottage
Ledbury is rural and although we do have WiFi it isn’t as fast as we would love it to be.
Each of our cottages has plenty of parking space available.
Our cottages are fully equipped with dishwashers, ovens, microwaves and fridge/freezers. Appliance sizes reflect cottage size.
As our cottages have been adapted from old buildings each has it’s own walled yard or patio to compliment the space.
We have apple orchards and fields to explore as well as easy to access footpaths to woodland walks.
Close to Town
We are only a 10 minute walk from Ledbury and everything our little market town has to offer. Perfect to pop in for a stroll around or some shopping.
