The Cob at Montpelier

The Cob at Montpelier

The Cob is a unique Cob house made from straw and lime render, supported by exposed Douglas Fir timbers and with a living roof. Situated 30m away from our 200 year old stone cottage, it stands alone amongst four acres of gardens and wild meadows.

Surround yourself in nature, enjoy sitting on the Verandah where you will see Red Kite and Buzzards overhead - you may even catch site of a Roe deer running through the meadows that back onto Brilley Wood. This is a place to take in the fresh air and totally relax at our luxury adult only Bed and Breakfast on the borders of England and Wales, close to Hay-on-wye.

Caring For The Planet

Our eco-built Cob house is made from straw and lime render with a living roof of sedum and chives. Much of the food served for breakfast is locally sourced from nearby farms and producers or grown in our vegetable garden. We are committed to re-wilding our 4 acres of land without the use of pesticides or weedkillers. As a result, there is an abundance of wildlife to be seen.
