“A taste of the country life.”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Lovely old farm house with grand old rooms. Beautiful secluded location. The owner was friendly, accommodating and prepared a fine breakfast of fresh bantam eggs, local thick cut bacon and excellent sausage, along with toast and preserves.

A word of warning though, the cockerel may crow quite early and the grandfather clock will chime on the hour, but don't let this deter you, you'll thoroughly enjoy your stay here.

Room Tip: Double room at the front is lighter, and has trophies of safari on display!

We stayed with Mr Egremont Lee and his (new) charming wife last weekend and had a really delightful time. The house sits on its own up a long drive in the middle of breathtakingly beautiful countryside and is full of oak panels, beams, stone floors...so much character and charm. Mr and Mrs Egrement Lee are laid back and convivial hosts and the stay was relaxed as weekends away should be. Breakfast consisted of eggs from their own chickens, home made bread and marmalade - and bacon and sausages for those that want it! All this around their large wooden table in the kitchen by the aga. Herefordshire was an unknown county to me but it is really worth exploring and getting to know and Middle Trewern is the ideal place from which to do it. We will be back!

We were a party of four, aiming to walk this section of the Offa's Dyke path, new to the area and new to Middle Trewerne. Well, we did walk, but we also played Anthony's piano, relished the eggs from his chickens, photographed the procession of cute animals and their babies wandering around the garden, talked up a storm with him - finding out about the area and its history. Meals out were a pleasure, both in Longtown and in his recommended pub where Vera had been host for a great many years and made us very welcome. The whole visit felt like a home from home - easy, convivial and very more-ish.

Room Tip: There is not a lot of choice but they are all interesting and comfortable in a very homely sort of w...

This is the sort of place that you'd prefer to keep to yourself but that would be unfair to the charming Mr Egermont-Lee who welcomes you into his home. Be sure to ask to look at the folder he wrote about the history of the house which was extensively and sympathetically renovated. It oozes character and, although some might grumble that there are no en suite bathrooms, it is a really quality B&B of a class that is hard to find.

It feels like you are visiting Mr Egremont-Lee at his home rather than staying in a b&b. With geese, chickens and guinea fowl following you around as you walk around the garden, we stayed in an africa-themed room with a window looking out on the shed where swallows flitted by as thick as flies. He booked us for dinner at a charming local pub and we came down in the morning (after a perfect night's sleep) to find sausages sizzling on the aga and Mr Egremont-Lee complaining that his chickens had only just layed enough eggs for our breakfast! It was a privelege to be allowed to stay in this beautiful long house, our host was very hospitable and interesting and we will definately come back.

Middle Trewern is an absolutely beautiful 16th century long house in the most amazing setting on the edge of the Black Mountains. It's a privilege to stay in such an historic building, and to wake up to the best views imaginable. Antony is a great host, and cooked us a lovely breakfast on his aga. This is a fantastic place to stay if you like walking, and it's great for book lovers too as it's just 10 miles from Hay on Wye.
