Sprig’s Granary is named after Sprig, the famous 1927 Grand National winner, bred on the former stud where the property is situated at Bacton Green in the Golden Valley area of Herefordshire. The Granary, positioned opposite the famous race horse’s stable, is now a beautiful holiday home – bright, light, spacious, private, and luxuriously comfortable, and a spectacular place to stay. Sleeps 2 to 6, plus an infant.
The living room, highlighted in a serene pale blue, takes up most of the ground-floor space, with an open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting-area. The sitting-area is defined by the free-standing wood burner, half-encircled by white-painted brickwork.
A ground-floor bedroom with ensuite ‘wet room’ shower room has two single beds and is perfect for those with limited mobility. The other room off the ground-floor is the conservatory – a wonderful place to sit and relax.
The upstairs bedrooms are at either end of the building, creating a nice feeling of privacy. Each bedroom has the luxury of its own en-suite bathroom. The four poster bed in the Chinese red room is a double, and the French-style bed in the pale yellow bedroom is a king-size.
Outside, the private enclosed garden overlooks a beautiful rural scene of trees and fields, and has a patio and a good amount of grassed space. There is plenty of parking, too – both privately for two cars, and in the former stable yard, too, if necessary.
Sprig’s Granary is perfectly located for all kinds of holiday activity, such as browsing the second hand bookshops of Hay-on-Wye, canoeing down the Wye, visiting the famous Mappa Mundi in Hereford, to following the Black and White Trail of picturesque local villages or to striding up the slopes of the Black Mountains. Or just stay put, relax in the conservatory and watch the sheep peacefully graze.
