Old Mill Barns

Luxury living in a rural idyll

Steeped in history, steeped in comfort…


Close your eyes and imagine a luxury property in a glorious rural England setting. Now dream that that property has all the modern comforts of the twenty-first century and that it can sleep up to 48 people on an exclusive basis. What you are imagining is Old Mill Barns. Situated in rural Herefordshire just five miles from the Welsh border. This really is a superb spot for you to gather with the gang – your family, friends or colleagues – to celebrate a special birthday, an anniversary, or just to spend some time together. In effect there are three properties which we hire together for total exclusivity. Each property has three spacious living areas with under-floor heating, wood burners and great dining space. One property has a movie room, another has a TV room and all three have a hot tub.  You’ll love the spaciousness and luxury throughout with original artworks and stylish furnishings creating a lovely, relaxing ambience.

From £6,200

For exclusive use of all barns for a 3 night weekend stay

Accommodates up to 48

With 19 bedrooms across the total barn complex (plus a snug that sleeps 4 children).

In beautiful Herefordshire

Situated in rural Herefordshire just five miles from the Welsh border.

Dream your nights away in this dream location

The bedrooms are a delight: each of the 19 bedrooms is individually styled with its own bathroom. And they are all pure luxury. With 8 bedrooms and bathrooms in the Mill and Brye and 4 bedrooms, a snug (ideal for up to 5 children) and bathrooms in the Stables, there is plenty of inside space to eat, rest and play. Please note, the Granary and Hayloft are bedroom only annexes. Many of our rooms are on the ground floor, perfect for those who would rather avoid the stairs. Exclusive use allows a variety of options for couples, families and friends!

A place for eating, relaxing and celebrating


This is the perfect place if you want to cater for yourselves and get together with a large group of family and friends! The Mill has a whopping 20m long kitchen, lovely white china and quality cutlery, double AGAs, hot trays and cabinets.

The Old Byre boasts an additional 14m long kitchen if required. So you can see that for those of you who enjoy cooking, preparing a scrumptious meal for everyone can be easy and fun.

But, if cooking’s not your thing, or you just want to relax and be looked after, we can put you in touch with our preferred cooks who can cater for your every whim or drop off meals by arrangement. Or, if the weather’s fine, why not barbecue? And if you’d rather head out for the evening, there are several fine places to eat less than ten minutes’ drive away.

Out and about


Libertine Barns lie in a village that sits right on top of Offa’s Dyke so you can see that it is steeped in the history of this fascinating area on the Welsh/English border. Although now firmly English, at one time much of the area was Welsh-speaking. Spend a day in the cathedral city of Hereford, a half-hour’s drive away. The cathedral itself is worth the journey. Dating from 1079 it houses the famous Mappa Mundi, a medieval map of the world dating from the 13th century. While you’re there, why not visit the Cider Museum, or take a stroll along the banks of the River Wye? Or spend the day shopping or sipping coffee in one of the many cafes in the bustling High Town centre.

Away from the city, Herefordshire’s Golden Valley winds its way between the Black Mountains and the banks of the River Dore. Visit Hay-on-Wye or the village of Dorstone, or on down to Peterchurch, Vowchurch and Abbey Dore to Ewyas Harold at the south of the Golden Valley. These historic villages, set in beautiful, untouched Herefordshire countryside, conjure up a time gone by in a way that can only be experienced by being there. Pictures, videos and books can never quite capture the magic and charm of the area. And the gently rolling landscape makes it an ideal place for walkers.

And for those of you who like something a bit more active, there is loads on offer: golf, fishing, canoeing, white water rafting, cycling, horse riding, pony trekking, walking, rock climbing and so much more.
