    About this property

    Dingle Den is a cosy retreat set in a sheltered field next to a tinkling stream, with the Black Mountains as a backdrop. This eco-friendly accommodation is a haven for couples and small families who enjoy escaping to the countryside for the feeling of being at one with nature amongst the rolling Herefordshire hills. Sitting around the fire pit toasting marshmallows as the sun sets is a truly magical time; you could almost expect to see fairies flitting around the enchanting little meadow! Dingle Den has been made to a unique original design with a high-quality finish. It is a well-insulated, open plan cabin which sleeps up to 4 people, and has solar powered electricity and hot running water. Inside you’ll find a comfy double bed and double sofa bed, a table and chairs, a kitchenette with sink and 2-ring hob and a private bathroom with shower, eco WC and basin. The table and chairs seat up to four people. The log burner adds to the cosy atmosphere in the evenings. All the basic kitchen equipment is provided, as well as a welcome pack with the essentials (including some logs). Bedding and towels for up to 4 guests is included. One well-behaved, sheep-friendly dogs are welcome (but paws to stay off the furnishings please!) and there are numerous walks nearby, whether you prefer a quiet stroll to the local bar or to explore further afield. Ramblers enjoy the ancient Drovers’ Road which runs along the fields, and there is easy access by foot to the famous Offa’s Dyke path and into the Black Mountains where wild ponies roam free. The nearest town is Hay on Wye (6 miles) which has an annual literary festival attracting visitors from all over the world. The town itself is a treasure trove for anyone who enjoys strolling around boutiques, galleries and bookshops.
    Dingle Den is popular with foodies as there is lovely local produce available, from honey to gin which is distilled just down the road. The Abergavenny Food Festival is a regular destination for gourmets who love the markets, tastings and cookery workshops on offer. A regular market showcases all the fantastic local treats. Mountain biking and road cycling are popular, with adventurous folk enjoying the activities on offer at our neighbours’ company, Mountain Mayhem: clay pigeon shooting, hover-crafting, paint-balling and quad biking. There are paragliding site above the village of Pandy or Hay and visitors will often see them floating gracefully above the mountain ridge. Kayaking is a very popular activity on the river Wye, with rental available from Hay. The surrounding area is steeped in British history, with several centuries-old chapels and a small English Heritage castle site nearby in the village of Longtown. Visitors shouldn’t miss paying a visit to Hereford to discover the ‘Mappa Mundi’, a medieval map of the world which dates back to the 1300s. Celebrated composer of the ‘Enigma Variations’ – Sir Edward Elgar – lived in Hereford and his statue sits just outside the cathedral. Magnificent Llanthony Priory is one of the earliest Augustinian canons in Britain, of which only a few remain. To access the accommodation there is a private road on the owners’ property that leads to the parking spot. From there you’ll need to take in the fresh air for a two minute walk to the front door. The owners will help with bringing luggage from guests’ vehicles on arrival and departure.

    Craswall, Herefordshire is a short drive away from Peterchurch. The village of Peterchurch, with its handful of pubs and restaurants, is situated on the River Dore in the beautiful Golden Valley, flanked by the Black Mountains to the west and gentle hills to the east. Just 10 miles away is the wonderful market town of Hay-on-Wye, famous for its 30-plus book shops, excellent pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

    Mr Draisey ‐ 1 Jun 2021
    " The location is the most idyllic place and no one around. Very spacious and clean. We loved our time here and didn't want to leave. Will definitely be returning. "
    Mr Magnus ‐ 1 May 2021
    " We even had visits from a friendly hedgehog. The hosts, Joe and Billy could not have been kinder. Highly recommended. "
    Mrs Snuggs ‐ 1 Apr 2021
    "We came with our two dogs for our 10th wedding anniversary and we were greeted with such warmth from Jo & Billy, thank you! ..."
    Mr Gandy ‐ 1 Apr 2021
    " It was certainly over my expectations from previous places that I have stayed. Just would like to say a big thank you to Jo and Bill for making us so welcome at their holiday Dingle Den. We for sure would love to go back again. Paula and William "
    Miss Harrison ‐ 1 Apr 2021
    " The cabin was absolutely spotless and had everything we needed. The dog had the time of his life and we felt completely secure with letting him run riot in the meadow. 10/10 would recommend. We will be back for sure! "
    Rev Parkin ‐ 1 Apr 2021
    " Jo made me feel very welcome and explained how everything worked and where to find things. The cabin was very cosy with log burner and plenty of hot water curtesy of the solar panels. I hope to return again to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere to listen to the birds singing and the sheep gossiping , and to be away from traffic, and the hustle and the bustle of everyday life.. ;. "
    Mrs Snuggs ‐ 1 Apr 2021
    " We came with our two dogs for our 10th wedding anniversary and we were greeted with such warmth from Jo & Billy, thank you! The surroundings and the actual Dingle Den were everything we’d hoped for! Peaceful, calming, secluded and gave us the ability to totally relax (something that has been near impossible with our busy lives!). The dogs were able to explore and play to their hearts content away from any hazards; which again is something they don’t normally get to do living in a suburb, they had the best time! We are passionate about the environment and this incredible location and eco friendly place to stay gave us the ability to live out our dream of sustainability; with the compostable toilet, solar panels, gas fuelled den it is just wonderful!! Plug into all that is nature and meditate in this beautiful spot, you will not be disappointed!! 100% recommend!! "
    Ms James ‐ 1 Sep 2020
    " Also, those with limited mobility may struggle with the walk from the car to the accommodation as there are a couple of steep slopes to go up. The communication is fantastic and the owners are really helpful. I have already recommended this accommodation. "
    Mr Heminway ‐ 1 Sep 2020
    " Beautiful location in total privacy. Den was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and with all the facilities we needed. A friendly welcome from owner Jo who explained all we needed to know & provided a perfect place to stay. Would highly recommend. "
    Mr Goodwin ‐ 1 Aug 2020
    "A secluded and well-built little gem that helps you get away from it all. Lovely surroundings and if you don’t mind negotiating one-track roads and having no phone signal for anyone to bother you, then this is for you. The Den was well equipped and I can’t fault the owners who were polite, communicative and prompt to resolve any issues. The best way to describe it is ‘luxury camping’ as you have a toilet, some power and gas stove, although a fair walk to the fridge. The shower was great ..."
    Mr Webb ‐ 1 Aug 2020
    " We have a wonderful few days exploring the local area. The ridge onto the summit of Black Hill is accessible from the door and is a beautiful walk with a real mountain feel. Dingle Dell itself was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We loved the lack of WiFi and time as a family, making full use of the fire pit outside and the cosy wood burner inside. Our girls loved the space and playing in the stream which runs just by the hut. Thank you to the owners who made us really welcome too. We'll definitely be back :-) "

This is untrue. There is no fishing on site and this was a disappointment because we searched specifically for a ‘fishing holiday’. "

    " The Den was very clean and the outdoor space was lovely, great shower, really enjoyed the fire pit. Beautiful area - would stay for longer next time. "
    Miss Ryan-phillips ‐ 1 Sep 2019
    " The host was very friendly, and all of our needs were met. It was a fantastic week and I would love to go back! "
    Mr Vilman, August 2019 ‐ 1 Aug 2019
    " We used the fire-pit to cook a dinner . Surroundings are absolutely stunning and secluded. We would recommend it to everyone who need a break from a busy life . "
    Mrs Smith ‐ 1 Aug 2019
    " There were two of us and a dog, and it was the perfect size. There is a private car park space and a wheelbarrow to help with getting luggage up the path to the den. The den is perfectly secluded and has a fenced private field with a stream which we were able to let our dog roam free in. The den is eco friendly and runs off solar power which is enough to charge one iPhone at a time and power lights etc but not to use a hairdryer and no fridge. Alternatively, there is a fridge in the barn down the path or you can store items in the stream to keep them cold, which we did-this was quite fun! The shower has good pressure and the water is hot. There is a composting toilet. Kitchen facilities were good and we had a couple of fires in the wood burning stove. There is a fire pit outside that we didn’t make use of. The best part of the Dingle Den is that the field leads straight onto a path with many walking options. We did a couple of routes which looped up and over the Cat’s Back. The family were very helpful and gave us a lovely welcome pack with homemade scones. Would highly recommend for a break from city life! "

    " It's perfect for a small family wanting to explore or a couple wanting to escape a busy and stressful life. It's very peaceful, and for me, my partner and our dog has been an amazing short getaway. On arriving we received a little welcome basket with homemade scones, butter, jam, a small jar of milk and some bottled water which was a lovely touch and very welcoming! The den is solar powered so there is no fridge, we kept things cool in the nearby stream and the owner does keep a small fridge in one of their buildings just a short walk from the den. The den was spotless inside, very cosy, comfortable and well equipped. The fire pit outside is wonderful and we enjoyed a barbeque and toasted marshmallows on our last night! Shops and pubs are just a short drive to hay on wye and there is a local pub about 5 miles from the den and the food was lovely. This short break exceeded our expectations and we are hoping to make it an annual trip. "
    Dr Messaritaki
    " The accommodation was clean and comfortable, the outside space perfect for our two boys to run around, and the fact that there was the walk up the Cat's Back starting from the pod was an additional plus. We will definitely be going back. "
    Mr Lord, May 2019
    " i can't wait to book it again! "
    Mrs Brain
    " When we arrived we were taken back at how stunning the location was. The pod itself is so cosy, clean and well thought out, we really enjoyed staying there. My children and our dog loved being able to explore the grounds and it felt secure enough for them to wonder around and play near the stream. We can’t wait to return again soon. "
    Mr Mann
    " The property itself is beautifully designed and well equipped with everything sparklingly clean. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer to enjoy the area and do some walking (there are trails nearby). "

    "The views are stunning, the wood burner powerful and the access to the hills means you can get out there very quickly."
    Mr Lock
    " The views are stunning, the wood burner powerful and the access to the hills means you can get out there very quickly. Two adults, a black lab and a nine-year old had a great weekend, despite the gales, rain and hail! We WILL be back - looking at making it a regular thing! "
    - Mrs Leadbetter, October 2019
    "Perfect place to escape. It had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. Greeted by Jo who shown us around and gave us a welcome hamper with scones butter and jam, milk and water. The den was spotless and really cosy, the log burner heated the space up quick. The surroundings where beautiful. It was secure with a fence all around to let our dog run around as much as he wanted. On a clear night the stars were magical. Cant wait to book our next trip there."
    - Ms James, September 2020
    "Also, those with limited mobility may struggle with the walk from the car to the accommodation as there are a couple of steep slopes to go up."
    - Miss Flaherty, September 2020
    "However it was a beautiful location and we didn't run out of power so it was fine. Also very warm and insulated which made it a very pleasant stay. Gorgeous views and lots of fresh air which is exactly what we wanted."
    - Mrs Reddock, May 2021
    "The pod was perfect with everything we needed and was really cosy especially during the rain. We particularly loved the meadow, it was fantastic for our dog and we enjoyed spending time exploring what was there and also the walk from the gate up to the hills beyond was beautiful. We were treated to a visit from a hare, hedgehog and cuckoo, amazing! The owners were very welcoming and we would love to go back one day. Thank you."
