Keepers is an apartment in a recently built barn using traditional materials on an oak frame at the 20 acre small holding of Greenfield Farmhouse, Huntington. From balconies there are wonderful views over to the Black mountains and across the top of our 10 acre wood. It is a peaceful haven and greatly appreciated by bird watchers. Huntington is a village of scattered farms in the heart of the Marches with a small historic church, St. Thomas a Becket and an old characterful pub. There is a choice of public footpaths, with Offas Dyke only a mile away. A favourite visit is to the market town of Hay on Wye, well known for its annual book festival and second hand book shops and many other market towns along the border of England and Wales. A wonderful spring garden is Hergest Croft Gard...Keepers is an apartment in a recently built barn using traditional materials on an oak frame at the 20 acre small holding of Greenfield Farmhouse, Huntington.

Keepers provided excellent and restful accommodation in a perfect setting. Sheep in the fields, chickens at the back door and an endless stream of woodpeckers at the bird feeder provided constant interest.

It was a pleasure to host David and Bev who seemed to enjoy this very special place as much as us and to share it with them. Keepers was left in an immaculate way and we very much hope they will visit us again.

The stay at Keepers was fine just a little isolated for ourselves... the weather didn't help was raining and windy. If you have lovely weather would have been a much better place. There is a balcony to sit on but it does need some attention...More

About the neighborhood
Huntington is a small village of scattered farms close to the border between Wales and England, marked by Offas Dyke which is a footpath travelling the length of the boundary. Unusually there are two churches, the United Reform Church and St Thomas a Becket which lies hidden in the fields. Nearby The Swan, a very old pub, is thought to have been built on the site of an inn dating back to the 13th century. There are remains of Huntington Castle, possibly built in William the Conqueror's time and remains of a motte and bailey. The whole area is a wonderful place to enjoy peace, quiet and beautiful scenery as well as having plenty for the active and those who enjoy history and geology.
How to get there
Our post code for those using a SAT NAV is HR5 3PZ. If driving, head for Kington, take the lane opposite the church and follow the signs to Huntington.
