Luxury bed & breakfast and self-catering accommodation set in the heart of Herefordshire’s glorious Golden Valley


Breese Barns is situated in the heart of Herefordshire’s glorious Golden Valley. Peacefully tucked away on the edge of the village of Dorstone and just 5 miles from the famous “booktown” of Hay-On-Wye, Breese Barns is ideally situated to explore this breathtaking part of the country. The Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons are on our doorstep and there are wonderful walking opportunities from the front door. Alternatively just kick back, relax and enjoy the seclusion, peace and tranquility this beautiful little corner of the world provides.

Our property offers both bed and breakfast accommodation alongside Hodson’s House, our self-catering holiday cottage, which is situated within the extensive grounds.

The village of Dorstone itself is just a short stroll away. At its heart lies the historic Pandy Inn offering a warm welcome, local ales and excellent pub grub. It’s a popular place, so booking is advised!

We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place and very much look forward to sharing it with you, whether that be as a bed & breakfast guest in our house or across the way in Hodson’s House on a self-catering basis. Further information is available on our listing for the bed & breakfast rooms and at Blaentrothy Cottages for the self-catering option in Hodson’s House. Alternatively, please feel free to contact us with any other queries, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

From the moment we pulled on the drive we just knew this place was somewhere special.”
