With its unspoilt views of the rolling hills, unique station platform setting and characterful interiors, The Parcel Office is a cosy and utterly charming holiday home in rural Herefordshire.
Set on a quiet country lane in Herefordshire, Rowden Mill Station has been lovingly converted and is home to two separate little boltholes, the smaller of which is The Parcel Office. Inside, it is warm and welcoming, with a blend of original features and contemporary comforts. Through the window you can watch the ever-changing scenery, complete with wildlife and starry skies. And nearby the historic towns and stunning countryside of Herefordshire await your exploration. Whether you’re cuddled up in front of the wood burner, watching a blockbuster in the home cinema or out and about, you’re sure to achieve a sense of true escapism.
Whether you’re looking for a quiet retreat in a setting from yesteryear, or a base from which to explore the surrounding Herefordshire towns and countryside, Rowden Mill is an excellent choice. The station is within walking distance of a nearby inn at Bredenbury. The historic market town of Bromyard is only a 5 minute drive away - many good pubs and eating places here, as well as cinema-theatre, shops etc. The station is ideally situated to discover the cider and perry making trails, or to visit the gourmet town of Ludlow. Visit the Malvern Hills and Wye River Valley, the historic town of Hereford and the ‘Black and White’ villages around Leominster. The Severn Valley Railway, the Gloucestershire-Warwickshire and the Dean Forest Railway lines are all within one hour’s drive. You can go horseriding, canoeing, hiking, biking, fishing, play golf, visit farm parks, heritage railways, gardens, parklands and nature reserves.
