The Setting

Nestled at the foothills of the Black Mountains on the border of Wales & Herefordshire, The Barn at Drovers is located just outside the famous book-town of Hay on Wye. This stunning organic 16th century Farm is surrounded by meadows, fields and forest. The Farm would not look out of place in the South of France with all its glorious stone buildings!

The Vibe
