Ruxton Farm is in a peaceful location on the biggest loop of the River Wye. It is an ideal base for fishing, walking or canoeing and all facilities are within easy reach. There are good pubs and excellent restaurants close by. The farm is set in 14 acres and dates back to the Iron Age, where there was a fortified farmhouse guarding the access across the first of the ancient fords, complete with an internal well for security. A complete wooden framed structure was added in the 17th century, including the original staircase and hound gate, using timbers from one of the earlier bridges. A Georgian façade was added at a later date. The Mill (UKC1795) is a converted cider mill and granary with exposed beams and original stonework, whilst The Byre (UKC1796) is a converted 17th-century sandstone/timber stables and granary.
There are lots of attractions in the area to suit all ages including Goodrich Castle at Ross-on-Wye, Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo and Hedge Puzzle at Symonds Yat, Go Ape at Lydney, and Hereford, with its spectacular cathedral and Mappa Mundi. There are plenty of cycling opportunities along the Cider Cycle Route, the Ledbury route, or the 19-mile Pembridge cycle route. Take a guided tour and sample the Three Choirs Vineyard at Newent, or wander around Hampton Court Castle and Gardens. However you choose to spend your holiday you’re sure to find plenty to do in this area of Herefordshire. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile. The Mill (UKC1795) and The Byre (UKC1796) can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    We had a great time in a very impressive cottage. It was well positioned to visit key places in Herefordshire. The cottage had all of the amenities we needed and were complete.

    Excellent base to stay whilst touring the Wye Valley area. Lovely walks and The Byre was well equipped and perfect for our needs.

    Loved our short break away. Thank you to Emma for a warm welcome and a tasty homemade cake! Will definitely return. The Byre is out in the middle of nowhere, which was just perfect. But lots to do a short drive away. Found some lovely pubs/restaurants/cafes for food, which was brilliant as I didn't want to cook. Highly recommend it as a peaceful, comfortable, quiet retreat. Loads to do with the kids in the surrounding area.

    Attractive building, well equipped. Very clean and well maintained. Location was quite remote for us-too many winding lanes. Our only negative is that we found the two settees rather uncomfortable - one too low and soft and the other too hard. Maybe it was just us. The owners were friendly and helpful.

    We could not appreciate the cottage and the surrounding area due to inclement weather.

    Very peaceful, lovely welcome, especially the welcome cake. The Byre fitted our needs exactly. The cottage was very comfortable, maybe invest in new settee's, which are more comfortable. I have already recommended it to friends

    A lovely place, fabulous location for the river and to explore the Wye Valley. Emma was very welcoming and the cottage had everything we needed, and more! Next time we go to Herefordshire, we’ll definitely return to The Byre
