Welcome to Upper House, Discoed
Upper House, near Presteigne, offers self catering holiday accommodation with a wonderful sense of history in a peaceful and relaxing setting. Upper House is a fine example of a small Tudor Manor House located in the tiny hamlet of Discoed. Enjoying far-reaching views across the Lugg valley and a stone’s throw from Offa’s Dyke, Upper House is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and is well placed for exploring the towns and villages of the Welsh Marches. This charming, carefully restored historic house sleeps six.
Upper House borders a courtyard of stone and oak barns and, beyond them, the tiny church of St Michael’s. With an inglenook fireplace, flagstone floors and furnished with period furniture, this special house provides the opportunity to stay in a truly historic environment, but with the benefit of modern conveniences such as hot water, central heating and squishy sofas.
Summer drinks and barbeques can be enjoyed by the raised lily pond with its koi and golden carp and views beyond the rose-clad pergola and herbaceous border to farmland and the foothills of the Cambrian mountains.
Note: St Michael’s Church, recently restored, is also available for hire and provides a wonderful resource for events, rehearsing, performing and recording chamber music.
“A Tudor manor house for six in the rural idyll of the Welsh Marches, Upper House is a marvel of flagstone floors, exposed beams, dark oak furniture and heavy drapes…..It’s equally lovely outside: leaded windows look over a mossy medieval church and the glorious Lugg Valley, the garden has a raised lily pond and pergolas, walks along the Offa’s Dyke Path are wonderful, and Hay and Ludlow are both a 45-minute drive away.” Red Magazine
“Wonky beams, slopey floors, a vast inglenook and majestic views… all you want from a Tudor wool merchant’s house in a lush Welsh valley”, Alastair Sawday Historic Homes Special Place to Stay
