Whitney Court Location & Map











Whitney Court is set in a private 1,000 acre estate, one mile from the village of Whitney-on-Wye, and around five miles east of the charming market town of Hay-on-Wye, famed for its literature associations, and host to the annual Hay Literary Festival in early June. The closest train stations are at Hereford and Leominister both 14 miles away, and the nearest international airports are Cardiff, 70 miles away, or Birmingham, 76 miles away.

The house is within walking distance of a lovely pub, The Boat Inn, located in Whitney-on-Wye, less than a mile away. There are over 11 miles of footpaths and tracks perfect for walking, cycling or horse riding within the estate, and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its leisure and recreation opportunities. The Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains are both within easy reach, with a host of outdoor pursuits available nearby, from kayaking and canoeing to mountain biking, rock climbing and white water rafting for the more adventurous. The Brecons Way is a well known walk spanning the length of the Brecon Beacons, totalling over 100 miles, and there is also a long distance cycling trial known as the Taff Trail that passes nearby.

For those seeking a more gentile pace, there are beautiful walks along the River Wye, and the river itself can be navigated without restriction for over 100 miles. There are many places of interest in the local area, from the Castles at Ludlow and Chepstow to the ancient hill fort at Croft Ambrey.

The nearby Elan Estate features the spectacular Elan Valley Dams, built during the 1800s with five reservoirs in total. In nearby Hereford, the cathedral is home to the Mappa Mundi, a wonderful medieval map which is well worth a visit. Western Herefordshire also offers the famous Black and White trail, which is a tour of around 40 miles which encompasses some of the most intact black and white villages in the UK.

For little ones, there is a lovely farm park in nearby Kingston, the Small Breed Centre, and pony trekking at the Grange Trekking Centre, located near Hay on Wye. Canoeing is very popular with families and lazy days can be spent meandering the river. For older children, there is a mountain biking XC centre at Hopton Wood, and a climbing centre at Llangorse.
