Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Kington, Herefordshire, England
Blodeuwedd Cottage is located on a single track no-through road and on the edge of the attractive and thriving market town of Kington, a 'Border Town' in the Welsh Marches. It's only 10 minutes walk to local shops, deli, tourist info, post office, takeaways, restaurants, pubs etc. The cottage is named after Blodeuwedd (meaning 'Flower Face'), a beautiful woman who was cursed and turned into an owl in one of the stories belonging to the Mabinogion, a famous collection of old Welsh legends.

The cottage is several hundred years old and is one half of a traditional Welsh long-house. One can see how the central circular fireplace has been divided in two, probably a hundred years ago or more. Both the lounge and front bedroom have lots of exposed beams and many of the walls downstairs are natural local stone.

Interaction with guests
Guests have the cottage all to themselves during their stay. I am always available by message, email or phone - before, during and after your stay - and happy to help with anything from directions to tips on what to do and where to eat. When you arrive, you will either be met in person or we can leave the key in a key-safe for increased flexibility.

Getting around
We recommend visitors come by car, as getting around the area is much easier that way.

However, we have had many come by public transport (for example direct trains from London to Hereford, bus from Hereford to Kington, short walk from town centre to cottage). Kington is a centre for walking and many paths are right there.

Please send a message if you are uncertain about travel to/from the cottage or around the area.
