Holt Farm lies in attractive, rolling hill country on the borders of Herefordshire and Monmouthshire, at the end of a long private track. It is a wonderful, peaceful location and has immediate access to superb walks and rides.
The organically run farm is at 900 feet and a footpath rises behind to a hill with direct access to Offa's Dyke and the Black Mountains with views which are out of this world.
