The Owner Says
We’re a working dairy farm and want to welcome guests who want to experience country life as it really is. That means squawking rooks, the hum of the milking parlor, mooing cows and dogs running around. All of the things that give the countryside it’s character.Our luxury tipi is tucked away in the apple orchard, providing ultimate privacy with a cosy interior and outdoor eating and relaxation area. With it being 21ft the tipi has a king size bed, 2 single bed and a futon single bed. Outside the tipi, there’s a smashing little eating area with simple handmade furniture where you can lay out breakfast bits of locally sourced produce to enjoy in the morning sunshine. The Tipi has enough room for a family of 5.

Footpaths aplenty on the doorstep. If it's views you're after, the route from Black Hill to Hay Bluff takes some topping or immerse yourself fully in the surroundings by renting a canoe with Canoe the Wye (01600 891100) and drifting down the river itself. Head into Hereford or Ross-on-Wye for independent shops and townie delights – cafés, restaurants, cider museums and more – or visit Goodrich Castle (01600 890538), a stunning ruin just south west of Ross, with roll-downable grassy banks and towers to climb. Puzzlewood (01594 833187) in the Forest of Dean has an indoor wood puzzle maze and animals to pet for rainy days. When sun comes out, explore its 15 acres of moss-covered paths, said to be J.R.R. Tolkien’s inspiration for The Lord of the Rings.
Food & DrinkThere's nothing quite on the doorstep, but cast your net around 4 or 5 miles from the glamping site and there are heaps of options. The nearest pub is the New Harp in Hoarsworthy (4 miles; 01432 840900), closely followed by the Moody Cow in the opposite direction (4 miles; 01989 780470). The Crown at Woolhope (5 miles; 01432 860468), though, is especially recommended by Richard at White House Farm. For restaurants, try the No. 3 Restaurant in Ross-on-Wye (6 miles; 01989 564997) and Shack Revolution (10 miles; 01432 509464) or The Beefy Boys (01432 359209) in Hereford. Finally, for general goods, drive the 4½ miles to Fownhope village where there is a decent butchers and corner shop.

From Ross-on-Wye (or the M50) Take the A449 towards Hereford. Keep following this until you reach the B4224. Follow the B4224 for around 1 mile until you see the sign for How Caple Court. Turn down this road (following the sign) and follow the lane for 1 mile until you start to go down into a valley. Pass the small brook and the entrance to White House Farm will be on the left just before a phone box. The nearest train stations are in Hereford (11 miles), Ledbury (10 miles) and Gloucester (19 miles).
