The Hayloft: A Luxury Self-Catering Barn Conversion in Ross on Wye


Dog-friendly accommodation | Sleeps up to 6

Deep in the heart of the Wye Valley near Ross on Wye sits The Hayloft, a quirky self-catering barn conversion that’s home to original 19th-century wood timbers and luxurious touches. 

The Hayloft is owned by the team at Mad Dogs and Vintage Vans, a wildflower-filled glamping site that offers peaceful country walks and spectacular sunsets. Located just a short walk down the road from the glampsite, The Hayloft is a perfect Ross on Wye self-catering option for those wanting to enjoy the restorative effects of nature – but with an extra dose of luxury.

As you enter through your own private gate, you can’t fail to fall instantly in love with the rustic charm of The Hayloft. The 2-storey converted barn sleeps up to 6 people across 3 bedrooms: there are 2 doubles and 1 twin, each lovingly decorated with boho-inspired artwork, fabrics and furniture. Wood-panelled walls and original timbers can be found in each room, adding a cohesive flow to the entire property.

With 2 bathrooms and an upstairs sitting room, there’s room to spread out and get some peace and quiet. The Hayloft’s stand-out space, though, is arguably the downstairs open-plan kitchen and dining area: the kitchen, with its wooden worktops and modern appliances, has everything you need to whip up a delicious meal (or open a well-deserved bottle of vino). Meanwhile, nestled around the log burning stove is a cosy under-stairs reading nook, armchair and dining table.

When the sun’s shining, there’s no better place to unwind with your loved ones than in The Hayloft’s private walled garden. Featuring a BBQ and biergarten-style table, it’s ideal for lazy brunches, afternoon grills or evening parties.

Nearby attractions

Located in a small village, up a ‘no through road’ lane, The Hayloft is uniquely placed for quiet breaks soaking up the company of your nearest and dearest. There’s plenty to do on your doorstep, including walking, cycling, canoeing, and wild swimming – but if you do fancy stepping out a little further, there’s plenty to see and do there too.

Swing by the town of Ross-on-Wye, just over 2 miles away, for a wander around the independent shops, restaurants and cafes. The beautiful city of Hereford is half-an-hour away by car, and is home to museums, National Trust gardens and lifestyle boutiques.

Other nearby areas of interest include the Norman medieval ruins of Goodrich Castle (8 miles away), South Herefordshire Golf Club (4 miles) the International Centre for Birds of Prey (9 miles), the Forest of Dean (with its high ropes and mountain biking) and the Malverns.
