The ultimate rural house party location. 

The Colloquy

Lyonshall Herefordshire HR5 3JA 01544 340 241

We say

You don't book The Colloquy lightly. First of all, it's got eight bedrooms and can sleep up to 25 people in a big degree of comfort. It's also in a fabulously remote location in Welsh Border country so you had better make sure you like each other too before going ahead. On the other hand, if you're planning a family celebration, a landmark birthday party to just a reunion of old friends, it could be just the place; and it's also worth considering for corporate events, too, with local chefs on tap and all manner of catering provided. First things first, the guest rooms, which vary enormously but are all pretty comfortable and kitted out crisply and cleanly in varying shades of contemporary style. All have en-suite facilities – either bath or shower – and all are doubles with large or super-large double beds, apart from one, which is a twin. There are a several living spaces to choose from downstairs – so perfect either for French farce or a murder mystery – and outside there is a decent-sized swimming pool, sauna, squash and badminton courts and table tennis. They also have a beautiful, large garden, and naturally the countryside beyond is sublime – you're not far from Offa's Dyke long-distance footpath and Wales is just a hop, skip and a jump away. You're also within spitting distance of Leominster, and the gastronomic mecca of Ludlow.  And, hey, if you like the idea of it but the size makes it just a fantasy, the same folk have another property, The Forge, nearby.
