The Hen Home
Self Catering Holiday Cottages
A Country Retreat
The Hen Home is within the grounds of Coed Lank Farmhouse, which was built in 1520, and enjoys views over its gardens. The Hen Homes started off life as exactly that; they housed the farms' chickens! Since then they have been converted into offices and stables. Now they offer a comfortable, country retreat situated within the Herefordshire countryside.
The village of Garway is nearby and by using the footpath adjacent to The Hen Home, you will soon reach the 23 acre Common, where you will find a warm welcome at the pub, ‘The Garway Moon’. A different footpath from the farmhouse leads to Skenfrith, where castle ruins, river walks and the hospitality of ‘The Bell’ awaits. There is a local shop and fuel station in the village of Broadoak, 3 minutes away, where you can purchase those all important necessities.
The Hen Home is perfectly placed for you to explore the Welsh Borders, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. It provides a peaceful, rural, comfortable base from which you can access the joys of the surrounding countryside and the beautiful Market Towns of the area, such as:
Abergavenny – 25 mins
Ross-On-Wye – 15 mins
Monmouth – 10 mins
Hereford – 25 mins
Usk – 30 mins
Malvern – 45 mins
Opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding, canoeing and visiting local festivals and annual events abound. The area is bursting with tourist attractions, National Trust properties and spectacular scenery.

Historic market towns are close by, such as Monmouth, Ledbury, Hereford, Malvern and Abergavenny. They're full of boutique shopping opportunities.
We had a wonderful 4 week stay in The Hen House over Christmas. After we sold our house and needed somewhere to stay before we moved to our new home, the owners happily accommodated us, our possessions and the Christmas Tree! We were warm and cosy and the family thoroughly enjoyed playing the board games provided and took advantage of the lovely walks of the area.
Many thanks, Phil & Chris.

My family and I had a wonderful & relaxing break at, 'The Hen Home.' Kathryn was delightful & provided a warm welcome as well as everything we needed.
The grounds are extremely well kept and private. The garden area at the front of the property is lovely and well suited for a BBQ, meal or quiet drink.
The home is very well equipped and cosy and we enjoyed cooking an evening meal. The bed linen was crisp and fresh.
I enjoyed an early morning run across the Herefordshire countryside which was quiet and beautiful.
We would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends. The 'Hen Home' is a perfect stay and Kathryn's hospitality was extremely generous. An amazing stay in a country retreat.
Many thanks Ken, Jen, Cam & Al
