Come Free-range with Drovers Rest

For the Best Farm Holidays in the Land!  Tucked away at the foothills of the Black Mountains, in Herefordshire on the border of Wales, lies our beautiful 16th century Organic Farm, a historic place, where Drovers of old rested, on their long journey driving stock through the hills down to the London markets. Happily we still have a strong connection to our roots albeit slightly more luxurious! Today we are known for our  ‘Cool Farm Stays and Gatherings in the Sticks’ and our passion for nature, the planet and food grown the proper way. Drovers is a relaxed, hands on kinda place. So anything you can imagine of a farm is something you can get involved with. And our Food Nights & Sunday Lunches with organic home grown, seasonal produce are Epic!

We pride our farm holidays on being much more than just posh award winning accommodation. Here it’s all about the experience and the great british outdoors, for those dreaming of living a life more wild. Magic happens when people gather. That’s why a big part of what we do here at Drovers, is gather people. Around our weddings, farm activities, our dinner table, camp fires, walking the old Drovers paths and our Epic Events and Workshops. Once you’ve experienced our convivial gatherings, you’ll never want to leave!

Located in the Golden valley, in Herefordshire, off the beaten track within stones throw to our village, the famous book-town Hay on wye (which is in Wales!), the majestic Brecon Beacons National Park, the Black Mountains, the Begwyns and the wonderful River Wye means there is plenty to do in the area if you can tear yourself away from the farm. We do love dogs so feel free to bring yours along, we have been said to be the most dog friendly place EVER!

We are super proud that our farm holidays have won the Trip Advisor Certificate of excellence 5 years in a row. The Green tourism Award, The small rural business award with mentorship from Alistar Sawday,  as well as the 2019 Staycation award for Best Glamping site in the UK!

Choose to stay in one of our beautiful stone holiday cottages.

Dotted around the farm. You may have to shoo the ducks, hens, guinea fowls and our pet sheep Petal away, as you make your way to your door. As featured in Country Home and Interiors Magazine, the cottages have been restored to the highest standards using local materials and craftsmanship. It’s where the Drovers used to stay, to rest and recharge, on their way, as they drove their stock down from the Welsh hills to the London markets.

Or choose to stay closer to nature and the great British outdoors.

In one of our Super Posh Safari Tents, African in looks and 100% Welsh in spirit! All have been sited to take advantage of the views and with privacy in mind. You will see how substantial they are when you arrive. Much more like canvas cottages rather than camping. With its posh hotel  like features and private underfloor heated monsoon showers the term Glampotel (Glamping & Hotel) comes to mind!

We host many group gatherings from Corporate, to Schools, Weddings and Hen Dos. Please contact us to enquire

For the Love of Food

We are foodies at heart and how the food is grown is one of our great passions.

So do join us for our famous food nights, lazy weekend breakfasts, sunday lunches, pop up supper clubs featuring guest chefs and fully catered events. So not only can you have a break from cooking but you can also experience the lush organic produce from our Farm & Kitchen Larder too.
