Our story

Herefordshire has always been special for us, so when we decided to make a change and ‘escape to the country’ we knew where we’d like to be. Previously home had been Leicestershire and London.

As outdoor-loving people with dogs who love their walks, the way of life means we have never been happier!

We are surrounded by magnificent scenery – the Malvern Hills Area of Natural Beauty (AONB) to the west and the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley AONB just to the east. Offas Dyke and the Brecon Beacons are both within striking distance, and there are numerous Nature Reserves dotted all over the county. We’ve always had a fabulous time when visiting, especially the villages nestled in valleys around us with their lovely pubs and restaurants.

As the new owners of White House Cottages, we realise that many previous guests might know the cottages and surrounding country better than we do! We hope to continue the warm welcome given by the previous owners, but we also want to add our own touches over time and are excited to actually live here now.

The sense of community and being closer to nature is wonderful. We share a passion for conservation and the natural environment, and are also striving to make our cottages more sustainable by finding ways to do things better.  Even small changes can make such a big difference.

We bring lifelong experience in hospitality and an eye for design and quality. As keen travellers, we know the delight of discovering that special home-from-home to relax and recharge, and we’d love you to experience this for yourself at White House Cottages.

We look forward to meeting you all.
