Details

Our unique, beautiful cottages and two gatehouse lodges in the grounds of Pudleston Court represent an exclusive holiday location in the north of the county.

The cottages and two gatehouse lodges are newly fitted to a high standard each with their own private garden – ideal for that lazy outdoor breakfast in the morning sunshine, or for just relaxing after lunch. Or you could light the barbeque in the evening and simply enjoy the food, the ambience and the company.

The stay in The Gaggles includes access to the on-site leisure complex where there is a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room. Towels are provided.

The stay in The Butlers Cottage and either of the two gatehouse lodges includes access to a sauna and hot tub in the enclosed garden. Towels are provided.

The estate offers beautiful lakeside and woodland walks where you can take your dog, or bring your fishing rod and relax by the lake.

Dogs allowed.

We are ideally situated if you are planning to explore the many local places of interest, National Trust properties or popular walks such as Offa's Dyke. But if you simply want to get away for a quiet break, you will find the sheer tranquility at Pudleston is the perfect setting for a relaxed, revitalising stay.

Pudleston is a peaceful village of just a handful of dwellings and a church nestling in the north Herefordshire countryside, an ideal base for keen walkers with a network of waymarked paths for all abilities. The Gaggles is a 4 bedroom holiday cottage and The Butlers is a 3 bedroom holiday cottage both located within the grounds of Pudleston Court estate. Adam Lodge and Eve Lodge are a pair of delightful Grade 2 listed sandstone gatehouse lodges flanking the impressive main front entrance driveway to historic Pudleston Court built in 1846.

A Brief History of Pudleston Court

Pudleston Court, a Grade II listed building, is a prime example of a period during the mid to late 19th century when it was the fashion for successful industrialists of the day to build large country piles as ostentatious and lasting monuments to their achievements.

It has seen many changes over the centuries, however, from its initial conception as a residence fit for a well-to-do gentleman of the mid-1800s.

Lancashire “coal baron” Elias Chadwick originally commissioned the design and construction of the building in 1846 from Liverpool architect J. T. Brearley, who had produced plans for a lavish Tudor-Gothic style country house to be constructed of coursed pink sandstone, slate roofs and with embattled parapets. The Chadwick family remained in ownership of the estate for several decades.

During the Second World War, the house was used by the British Red Cross as a convalescence home for members of the armed forces injured in battle (author James Herriot stayed there).

In the 1950s, the house was then converted to use as a local authority special school for children with learning difficulties. Today Pudleston Court is a privately owned country estate.
