General

  • In a walkers' paradise in the Herefordshire countryside
  • Direct access to several trails including the Wye Valley Walk
  • Fully insulated pods with ensuite

Luxury insulated pods in the Herefordshire countryside – with their own cooking facilities, ensuite toilet and full-sized shower… what a base to come back to after a long day spent tramping the local paths.

Of which there are many… Caplor Farm's Herefordshire border setting in Fownhope has it firmly in a walkers' paradise, with direct access to miles of trails including the popular Wye Valley Walk, the 136 miles of scenic countryside from Chepstow in Monmouthshire to Plynlimon in Powys.

Fishing, canoeing, horse riding and plenty of other outdoor activities are all around here too, or you could treat yourself to properly easy time with gentle Herefordshire strolls or a look around the north of the county's black and white houses; the likes of Eastnor and Goodrich castles within nine miles, or the Hereford Cider Route, picking up samples along the way.

Each luxury pod is fully insulated and handsomely furnished, and has an ensuite toilet, a full-sized shower, cooking facilities, dining table and chairs, and bed linen and towels provided. Electricity is included in the price.

Please note that the farm doesn't have wifi.

    We had such a great weekend at Caplor Farm. The cabin was more spacious than we expected and incredibly clean. The caretaker was really friendly and couldn't do enough for us. He was so helpful. We would definitely recommend this place if you are looking to explore the beautiful Herefordshire countryside and enjoy the peace and quiet.

    Disliked: 

    Only downside was no toaster for breakfast but it wasn't a major issue.

Fab pods in a superb location - perfect getaway! 04/06/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Bethan D. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    My partner and I had never stayed in a pod like this before, and we absolutely loved it! Check-in and check-out was super easy, and having the free parking onsite was great. The pod itself was clean and tidy, and the facilities for cooking were really useful for the small bits of food / tea we made during our stay. We only stayed for one night, but would definitely stay for longer next time knowing we could make the most of these facilities. We also found the pod to be surprisingly spacious and having the ensuite was great. The location is perfect for walking, and we took a lovely walk along the Wye Valley path in the afternoon. We were lucky with the weather, and woke up to the birds singing and trees blowing in the breeze the next morning - so relaxing and refreshing!

    Loved the little cabins and the garden setting they were in. It was very easy to find and parking behind the cabins made it easy to move bags. Everything that is needed is supplied. The surroundings are beautiful and it's the perfect place for a short escape. We will visit again.

Excellent, clean and very friendly Staff. 08/05/2018

  • Liked: 

    Wow, what a beautiful spot! The pods are absolutely fantastic, spotless and roomy with a great shower room, even toiletries and towels are supplied. Everything in the kitchen area you need, good size fridge with compartment freezer, microwave, hob and kettle. Could not fault anything! The picnic bench was handy, and dean the caretaker even found us a couple of bbqs to use, we only took a couple of easy chairs, food and drink. We had wonderful weather and just spent the weekend walking the plentiful walks around, the men had a great bike ride, and we just sat under the trees and chilled. Cannot wait to return!

    Brilliant stay with everything we needed! Spacious bathroom and absolutely immaculate pod. Lovely and toasty with the heaters, the bed was a good size and very comfy. Not far from pubs however if you are planning to go for a meal book early as you can because many where full.

Local attractions

Walks and bike rides? Several trails start direct from here, including the circular Wye Valley Walk route to and from Ross-on-Wye, and a hike from Ledbury over Dog Hill and through Coneygree Wood. From local town Fownhope, it's about six and three quarter miles to Hereford, via the ridge at Common Hill; ancient woodland and the River Wye.

The Hereford Cider Route is a top pick for a bike ride through this part of the country, passing land where apple farmers have been producing cider for centuries (tipple fans might be interested to know that Herefordshire produces over half of the UK's cider). Take the 20-mile circular route from the train station in Ledbury, passing farms such as Scrumpy House and Lyne Down, or the 19-mile run from Pembridge past Dunkertons Cider Mills and Dilwyn.

Many heritage spots in the area for a more peaceful day out, including Berrington Hall, Brockhampton Estate, the Brecon Mountain Railway, Hereford Cathedral and Croft Castle. You could also have a drive around the Black and White Trail, past the timbered and half-timbered houses of north Herefordshire.

Golf, fishing, canoeing, whitewater rafting, cycling, horse riding, pony trekking and rock climbing are all available nearby.

  • Eastnor Castle (8.7 miles)
