Summary

Early 19th century Georgian rectory set in 3 acres with heated swimming pool near the historic town of Leominster.

Introduction

Staunton House is an early 19th Century rectory set in countryside near the historic town of Leominster, providing extremely comfortable B&B accommodation. 

If you're a fan of rural countryside, this is an ideal place to stay - and you may wish to walk and explore The Marches, Offa's Dyke, National Trust properties and Herefordshire's many historic castles and churches. In particular, Hereford Cathedral and its Mappa Mundi and unique Chained Library.

Close by is the Georgian town of Ludlow - renowned for its famous restaurants and medieval castle. Sixteen miles away is Hay-on-Wye, nestling under the foothills of the Black Mountains and internationally known for it Literary Festival, which takes place in May.

For fishing enthusiasts, the Wye and Usk Foundation have recently made extensive improvements to the Brown Trout and Grayling fishing in the upper reaches of these two well known rivers - and day tickets are readily available.

History to the present day

Staunton House was built in 1802 as a rectory for Staunton-on-Arrow's St Peter’s Church which sits on a hill in the village. The church has been much restored but the earliest records are of a vicar here in the 13th Century.

At the dissolution in 1538, it came under the patronage of Wigmore Abbey. The present structure is mainly of the 1850s with the East window representing scenes of the Nativity, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection and the Journey to Emmaus. The figures in the West window shrine are of Paul and Peter.

Food and Drinks

A full English breakfast is included in the price.

A two or three course dinner can be provided (please request in the Additional Information section on the booking form) and is served by candlelight in the beautiful formal dining room. The kitchen garden provides fresh vegetables for those enjoying our delicious home-cooked dinners.

Grounds and gardens

The house and extensive gardens are situated in an area of 3 acres, and the accommodation boasts a heated swimming pool, summerhouse and astroturf tennis court behind a walled garden.
