Hellens is hidden away in the Herefordshire countryside but has a wealth of history. The guided tour gave an insight into times past. Each room had its own story to tell and with so much interesting information I just had to buy the guidebook (something I seldom do) to remind me of all the stories the house holds. We finished...

A while ago we took a guided tour of this lovely historic house. The guide was an amazing story teller and entranced us with his tale of the history of this fascinating house. The whole experience was brilliant even including the damp fousty smell in the rooms, taking you back centuries. Well worth a visit and the gardens were beautiful... More

Wonderful little known gem, tucked away in Much Marcle. so much history here, and such an atmosphere, if you love history, you will love Hellen's. Much Marcle Church is nearby, and also very interesting.

Anyone who likes history this is a must. Still a family home but facinating tours of the house. Steeped in history going back to the time of the Black Prince and further. Some of the original furniture still there. There is a story in every room.

8Helen's Manor offers a view into a home and the inhabitants that shaped and developed it over the centuries. Located in a peaceful rural setting, there are no expensive jewels or priceless artifacts, but there is a lovely manor house with an interesting history and it is presented in a way that helps to bring the people alive. Bring a... More

Having wanted to visit Hellens for some time, we managed to combine it with another trip this weekend. Not what we had expected: a lovely old house with historic connections but it is not focussed on that aspect. It is still in private hands and lived in and perhaps that has led to what felt like a dilution of history.... More

A glorious house. House and collection both wonderful. The guided tours are great - the right length - and the gardens are perfect for wandering around. A perfect English manor house, still used by the family and filled with the sort of country house treasures that make English collections so special.

Hellens is a lovely Tudor mansion lived in by its owners in the depths of the Herefordshire countryside. Nice little café with seating outside as well. We booked onto a tour and then went for a cream tea although the sponge cakes did look good as well. The gardens are worth a walk round and there is an interesting herbal... More

This is a small, intimate house and the guided tour is extremely interesting. The grounds are delightful and the home made cake that accompanies the tea is particularly recommended. We have been to musical evenings here as well which have a lovely atmosphere.
