About the Coach House
The Coach House is owned and run by Peter and Wendy Born who have lived there since 1983...
As it's name suggests, the Coach House was originally the coach house and stabling for neighbouring Putley Court - a stunning property built by Mr. Edmund Phillips in 1712. It was formerly the home of Mr. John Riley, a country squire and renowned hawking breeder and flier. Putley Court and the Coach House were originally lit by acetylene gas generated in an outhouse which was superseded by battery powered electricity and finally by mains electricity in 1957.
The Coach House is now a unique residence, which has many of its original features retained, and offers five bedroomed en-suite accommodation arranged around a central courtyard in a relaxing rural atmosphere.
Breakfast is served in the spacious Stable dining room.

|Out and About|
There is so much to see and do in uncluttered Herefordshire, the land of poetry, music and sparkling nature. Walk the breathtaking Wye Valley National footpath, play golf on many scenic courses nearby, visit the superb black and white villages of North Herefordshire on the "Black and White Trail" and enjoy a meal in one of the many local, half timbered pubs for real quality and value.
Herefordshire is situated in the Marches, the beautiful borderland straddling the English and Welsh border, and is the heart of unspoilt rural England.
The landscape is truly delightful, gently rolling countryside nestling between the high ridges of the Black Mountains to the West and the Malvern Hills to the East, with the River Wye shaping the contours in its midst, flowing from Hay-on-Wye, down through the county to Hereford City itself, and then on South to Ross-on-Wye and Symonds Yat. Castles, cider apple orchards, countryside attractions: all are glimpses of Herefordshire`s distinctive and unique culture.
