Little Gaerfields

Little Gaerfields

The self-catering accommodation called Little Gaerfields and the facilities at Upperfields Farm, Herefordshire, are ideal for larger groups. Set in the beautiful south Herefordshire countryside with wonderful views across to Wales and The Royal Forest of Dean, the 17th century barn is made of traditional Herefordshire red sand stone and was once used as a milking parlour. The conversion reflects great attention to detail and is of an exceptional standard. There is an inglenook fireplace with wood burner, underfloor heating, fitted kitchen and comfortable sitting room.

Open from 8am - 6pm everyday and heated. Pool is 26' by 15' and 4' deep The pool hall has a changing room with shower etc. The swimming pool is to the left of the courtyard and the house is to the right. Sometimes it is possible to use the pool for an hour or two after 6pm. As parents and grandparents we know that children after a long car journey need to expell some energy, it helps if they can have a swim/play in the pool. Please ask before arrival to check if the pool is available. The swim jet and Far infrared Sauna are £1 for 20 mins of electricity. The swim jet puts a current in the pool to swim against, making it possible to swim in one place like an exercise machine and time yourself. A great favorite with children as they love to float around the pool on inflatables with the currant. We do not supply inflatables you would need to bring your own.
