Description

The Holme is located on the southern edge of the village of Lyonshall. In an elevated position it commands distant views to the north east over Herefordshire to the Clee Hill.

The local market town of Kington which has good shopping facilities is about 4 miles distant, whilst the Cathedral City of Hereford with its extensive range of recreational, educational and shopping facilities is about 17 to the east.
