Mad Dogs & Vintage Vans is nestled in a wildflower meadow in the grounds of a listed Old Rectory that looks west over the Wye Valley to the Black Mountains. With our big skies and views, sunsets here are spectacular.

A moment’s walk away you’ll find the showershack, campfire and mess tent within a pretty piece of woodland. It’s a place that’s full of wonder for kids and adults alike featuring mature trees, dappled light and wildflowers – perfect for building dens, swinging on a tyre and toasting marshmallows. A stay with us is about enjoying the simple things – cooking over a campfire, birdsong and starry nights.

We like to think you will have everything you need for a perfect stay. Monty, Sybil and Gertie feature cosy wood burning stoves and all the vans have vintage quilts, blankets and hot water bottles along with feather duvets and pillows. We have made every endeavour to make the glampsite as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible.

The Hayloft is located a short walk down the road from the glampsite. A truly original restoration project that fuses the original 19th Century wood timbers and upcycled materials with contemporary interior design.

We’re proud of Herefordshire’s food heritage and we want to support our local economy. We sell local bangers, bacon and burgers, farm eggs, freshly ground coffee, butter, cheese, homemade jams and chutneys, ice cream and our own Mad Dogs cider made with apples from our orchard.
