Best British Houses : Condé Nast Traveller : September 2014

In November 2013 Izzy Von Simson came to stay for the weekend at Monnington House with her husband and family to celebrate a family members birthday and also to review the house.

Izzy is Features Editor at Traveller Magazine and has a careful and astute eye. Much preparation went into her visit! Carefully chosen local produce was selected for the welcome pack – local quails eggs, welsh butter, crusty fresh bread, fantastic apples from Bentleys and fresh walnuts – She makes reference to this in her article. Herefordshire produces such wonderful food. This formula is now rolled out to all guests but is of course seasonally adjusted.

The weekend for the Von Simson family was a success. They visited Hay on Wye which they loved and had lunch at the Three Tuns. They walked around the farm and enjoyed the wonderful Monnington Mile and the sculptures produced by Angela Connor of Monnington Court. Caterers cooked dinner on the Saturday night and all went well!

its incredibly smart and yet still super comfortable, not always easy to get the balance right. We found the layout amazingly sociable and there are so many spaces to retreat to as well. I could imagine that if guests take the cottage as well then you could fit all 18 of you in without feeling on top of one another. The setting – especially at this time of year is just lovely. It was misty and autumnal and glorious. We loved it.

We are so pleased they enjoyed staying at Monnington House and featured us in the September 2014 issue.
