east friars

East Friars is our eclectic family home situated on on the banks of the River Wye in Hereford. A five minute walk to the City Centre or open countryside, we welcome guests to our relaxed, laid back, comfortable family home.

With access to and from the river this is a perfect overnight stop for canoeists, or holiday spot for walkers and fishermen. There is a pontoon for mooring if you arrive by river (direct access from river to the terrace) or safe off-road parking if you arrive by more conventional transport. For cyclists we have plenty of safe of road parking for your bikes and we are going stopping off point for those going from Lands End to John O’Groats. Ideal for families, small parties and anyone young at heart.

We offer a large family room (one queen-size plus one daybed and one trundle bed) with ensuite shower-room and views of the river, a double en-suite overlooking the garden and a garden annex room.

The house is full of books, art and (often) music. Just a place to relax, be yourself and eat great home-cooked food. Breakfast is provided by Polly who retrained as a Chef after years in marketing. Enjoy locally sourced food and homemade bread in the Conservatory overlooking the River Wye.

You’ll meet our very friendly, young Cocker Spaniel / Beddlington Terrier cross called Bea, our Tonkinese cat called Doodle and our offspring of varying ages.

We pride ourselves on being friendly and informal. Children very welcome. Well behaved pets can come too for an extra £10 each.

Rooms are from £70 a night.

We are really proud to have been awarded a Silver Medal for Green Tourism. We are also Airbnb hosts.

East Friars Residents

This is our family home so please don’t come expecting a sterile hotel. Life bursts forth here in many ways. A well as us, Roger and Polly don’t be surprised to encounter:-

Our well behaved dog enjoys to greet you, the cat who may be found curled up on the sofa and other visiting dogs.

Our fisherman friends tell us that there are Barbel, Chubb and Pike lurking in the Wye!

As well as these animals you might run into our young adult children and be engaged in conversation by our youngest daughter.

Borrow our books and CD’s, listen to the radio, sit in the garden or relax by the river.
