May Cottage description

This characterful and charming, Grade II listed, black-and-white terraced holiday cottage is set in a courtyard development of eight cottages. There are two rows of four cottages which face each other across a communal courtyard, which also provides private off-road parking for guests. May Cottage is in the middle of the row of four cottages closest to the church. The back door opens onto steps and the courtyard; the front door opens onto the shared lawn and garden area. A small muster of peacocks roost in Eardisley and occasionally visit the development; guests may see the peacocks perched on a wall or railing, or wandering in the courtyard and garden.
Nestled in the heart of the pretty medieval village of Eardisley, the property is near to Offa’s Dyke and Mortimer’s Trail, and the area is also popular for cycling, birdwatching, fishing and canoeing along the River Wye. The small town of Kington is just 5 miles, with Eastnor Castle and Hergest Croft Gardens. Hay-on-Wye is 7 miles, renowned for its literary festivals, and has an array of book shops, galleries, antique shops and many bars, restaurants and bistros. Eardisley itself has two great pubs, a village shop and post office and boasts a 12th-century Norman church. The cathedral city of Hereford is within easy driving, about 14 miles. Shop and pub 500 yards, restaurant 5 miles.

Separate toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms, each with 5ft bed. Single bedroom. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet. Shower room with toilet. Most rooms beamed.
