My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in this wonderful, historic house in the centre of the village. Our room was enormous and characterful and Tom and Jane made us very welcome throughout our visit. Jane's cooking was superb and her sticky toffee pudding with home-made ice cream was almost as historic as the house.

We spent one night at this lovely property and would have loved to prolong our stay. From the moment we arrived we felt 'at home' thanks to the welcome we received from Tom, Jane and their daughter Sophie. The roaring log fire in the entrance hall was so welcoming! The garden added to the beautiful setting with the spring flowers,... More

We stayed recently at this magnificent and historic house in the centre of the small and friendly Herefordshire village of Dilwyn, and can thoroughly recommend it. We received a very warm welcome from owners Jane and Tom, and soon settled into the extremely comfortable and spacious accommodation. We stayed in `Sophie`s Room` which was large and elegantly furnished, and with... More

The house is located in the village of Dilwyn and a car is essential to get around the area for sightseeing. It’s a lovely historic house dating back in parts to Tudor times. There were four of us in two twin rooms with a shared bathroom. We had the use of a sitting room off the dining room, which was... More

We have just stayed here for 2 nights with family and our hosts Jane and Tom who were very nice. The house is about 400 years old and that is what you pay for. Breakfast was very good and to top itoff Jane makes her own bread from scratch. It is fantastic. We enjoyed our stay.

This beautiful house has parts that are more than 500 years old and Charles II may have danced on the landing outside our room, but there were no eccentricities of plumbing and it was comfort all the way. We had two nights there during the Hay Festival and could not fault the welcome, the cooking (breakfast and dinner) or anything... More

I stayed at The Great House a couple of weeks ago when I was in Hereford to attend a friends wedding. From the moment I arrived on the Friday evening, Tom and Jane's hospitality was like I was staying with old friends, not like a B&B. I couldn't have asked for more in terms of comfort, service....and not forgetting the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Great House sits impressively on the edge of the pretty black and white village of Dilwyn, seven miles from Leominster and twenty minutes from Hay-on-Wye and Ludlow.Set amidst stunning gardens, wisteria and climbing roses cascading from the walls, guests will be bowled over by the comfort and quiet charm of this jewel in the heart of rural Herefordshire.Inside, there is much to admire: the original flagstoned hall with its wonderful open hearth, the fine beams and panelling of the winter drawing room and the 17th Century oak staircase hung with family portraits. The house has a reputation for warmth and hospitality. Charles II is said to have danced on the galleried landing, and to this day, guests are assured of a welcome fit for a King!The stunning garden has been lovingly created by owners Tom and Jane Hawksley over the last 14 years and is occasionally open under the National Gardens Scheme.A longstanding member of Wolsey Lodges, The Great House, Dilwyn, provides exceptional Bed & Breakfast accommodation with delicious home-cooked dinners by arrangement. Guests have their own elegant sitting room. Bedrooms overlook the gardens, occasionally open under the National Gardens Scheme. ... more   less
