an exclusive country retreat or pop-up country house hotel
Dewsall is a beautiful grade 2 listed family-owned chic retreat in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside and the perfect alternative to a boutique hotel if looking for a hideaway to enjoy with friends. This much-loved family home has been refurbished and transformed into a luxurious and stylish 10 bedroom country house retreat which can be taken over exclusively. Foodies will love the huge kitchen whilst the boys will enjoy a bitter or two in the billiard room which has a full size antique billiard table. The property can be staffed where necessary, fully catered when requested or entirely private. The cooler months at Dewsall are just as magical as the summer months as the property is surrounded by 15 acres of beautiful formal gardens and wild meadows with far reaching views across the Black Mountains. The 1000 acres of Duchy of Cornwall land has open bridleways throughout allowing you to walk for many hours straight from the front door.
Being in the middle of the countryside guests can enjoy a variety of country sports and pursuits including shooting, fly fishing, hot air ballooning and paragliding. Or for a bit of fun and to really enjoy the surrounding fields and farmland take a trip on The Great British safari, Dewsalls exciting way of exploring this expanse of beauty nestled in and over the southern Welsh borders. On all overnight adventures you can expect a boutique and luxurious camp with fine food and cosy beds. With a range of experts on hand you can travel up the Black Mountains or float through the Golden valley picking up the knowledge to find some of Britains rarest and prettiest flora and fauna. Dewsall has quickly become one of the UK's most sought after wedding locations, with its idyllic location and gorgeous interiors, it is the perfect romantic retreat for those looking to tie the knot. Everything and anything can be organised at Dewsall from chefs, to guided walks, shooting, Shiatsu, shooting and foraging.
When staying at the pop-up hotel the team at Dewsall focus on making you feel at home in your very own country house and in doing so they try as much as possible to steer clear from the hotel/restaurant theme. Therefore dinner is served as a set meal (all dietary requirements catered for) with an all day menu served from 12-9pm. Dewsall is available for serviced or unserviced exclusive use and is staffed where necessary, fully-catered when requested or entirely private.
