The Hill House
Duncan and Alex Welcome You

We aim to provide a de-stressing friendly, relaxed atmosphere and subscribe to the old adage "If it harms none, do-as you please!" Please feel at home.

The Hill House is hidden away in over 4 acres of private woodlands. Facing south and west at an elevation of around 500 feet. The views are spectacular:

South towards the mysterious and ancient deep woods of the Royal Forest of Dean.

West into Wales over the beautiful Wye Valley the distant winter snow capped Black Mountains.

Herds of wildebeest* have been seen sweeping majestically across the plain.

We provide the very best quality wholesome food (please state carnivore of herbivore) - sourced locally from small farms who really care. Nearly all organic, GM free and free range. The Hill House supper changes with the seasons but please give some notice as everything is slow (AGA) cooked.

The breakfast feast of British rather than English (Continental if you insist) and can be served in the morning room - sunshine, birds and radio 4 or even in bed, at a time to suit you.

A typical evening could be spent watching the setting sun turn the Black Mountains red from Abergavenny over the 'cats back' to Hay Bluff, then a sauna and splash (bring your favourite music) possibly one of Alex's massages, supper and drinks in the bar or outside under the stars. Or, you could just sit in the hot-tub drinking English champagne. If you can stay up long enough you may meet our ghosts. * May have been cows.


Apart from the rather special rooms mentioned on this site, there is an oak lined bar with music and comfy sofa's around an open fire - ideal for relaxing, drinking and good conversation.

There is also the 'bike shed' a warm cosy room with a huge squashy sofa, cushions and bean bags, soon to be our cinema - surround sound installed, awaiting projector.

Int the cellars are a genuine Finnish Sauna and steamy splash room with powerful showers where you can stand, sit or lay down, all wired for sound. There are many groaning shelves full of books to be read and our DVD collection is growing - some rooms have DVD players.

our lates toy is a seven seater, three pump monster Hot-Tub. Three seats offer serious Hydro-Therapy, the rest are relaxing and fun. Drinks can be served or the lights turned out to see shooting satellites, stars and milky way... Please don't eat chocolate bars in the Hot-Tub.
