Why we've chosen Upper Middle Road Farm:

Upper Middle Road Farm offers guests a peaceful and idyllic setting to make their stay perfect in every way. Footpaths abound from the house through fields or over hills or alongside the river Wye. Self sufficient in energy from solar thermal panels, PV panels and a log batch boiler. The owners Karen and Danny grow most of their fruit and vegetables organically, keep sheep and hens, bake their own bread, cakes and preserves, all for use in the delicious breakfasts and evening meals.
