At the end of a no-through road, two miles from little Stoke Prior, is a rambling old place steeped in history, a courthouse that dates from the 15th century; ask Sally to show you the wig room! Be welcomed by ducks on the pond, sheep in the field, dogs by the fire, and lovely hosts who make you feel at home. The hallway is flagged, the sitting room panelled, the fireplace huge and often lit; all feels authentic and atmospheric. Visit Hampton Court Castle, antique-browse in Leominster, play golf, walk to the pub. Return to cosseting bedrooms with generous curtains, big bathrooms, wonky floors and ancient beams; one room even has a wood-burner.

  • Wickton was once part of the 15th century Hampton Court Estate.The Wikipedia page refers to the panels we have here, installed in the 1600s. The gardens at the castle are well worth a visit and there are interesting events to attend for adults and kids.
  • In 1921, Alfred Watkins stood on our ridge, looking at the Malvern, Shropshire and Welsh hills and had a "flood of ancestral memory". The concept of Ley Lines was born! Walk or bike to his spot and ponder his revelation. Map of paths issued, take the dogs!
  • We are a few minutes from Leominster ( pronounced Lemster) an unpretentious town full of big and little antiques and vintage emporia - Home to Brightwells auction house. Go bid for a Classic Car or piece of Fine Art - or just go and look - I do - often!
  • If you are staying in an atmospheric house, you may as well visit some! Berrington Hall, Croft Castle and the Brockhampton Estate - all National Trust and close by with regular interesting events. Plenty of fabulous gardens to visit too. Lists are here...
  • The Black and White Village Trail can be included en route to Hay-on Wye, home of the world famous Literary festival - a beautiful journey through Herefordshire and the Welsh Marches. Red Kite feeding centre, Judges Lodging Museum - Welsh border treats...
  • Hereford and Ludlow are both 20 minutes from here easily accessed on the A49 - or by train from Leominster. Hereford for the Mappa Mundi, and Ludlow - a jewel! Sir John Betjeman "probably the loveliest town in England" just about sums it up + foodie treat!

"Sally and Robin were the friendliest of hosts to us during our stay, nothing was too much trouble for them to help us with, even collecting our son mid afternoon. Th house is a gem, roaring log fire in the sitting room, lots of candles and their 3 bouncy dogs at your feet . very comfortable 4 poster bed and huge bathroom. The breakfast is something to look forward to. Thank you for making our stay in Herefordshire so memorable."

"You cannot go wrong staying at Wickton Court. You will always remember it. Sally and Robin along with canine companions Boot, Bob and Bert and the feline Mr Black Cat and four very handsome grey chickens are the best of hosts. Nothing is too much. An historic house in a quiet rural setting which is perfectly situated for visiting Hay-On-Wye, Ludlow, Ledbury and the surrounding hills. If you are happy with dogs bouncing around on occasion and with a black cat who also occasionally rugby tackles the smaller ones then this is like staying with friends in their home. Food is top drawer try it."

"Absolutely Wonderful. Sally and Robin are very warm and welcoming hosts and go out of their way way to make guests feel at home. Sally is a great cook and I'd recommend booking the evening meal. The house is simply gorgeous. We will be back. "

"From start to finish, a happy experience. Sally looked after us very well indeed. A bicycle ride, a game of tennis and a read by the fire with only the rhythmic tick tick of the long case clock to break the tranquility of this beautiful place. The food prepared for us was fantastic. This place really is a 'find' and well worth a couple of nights stay. We will return one day..."

"The best B+B in the County of Herefordshire. True country living; character house, 4 poster bed, wood fires, bumper breakfasts, tasty suppers, friendly dogs, and wonderful Sally and Robin."

"Nothing was too much trouble for Sally at Wickton, and there were so many little touches - a very special place run by special people. We loved our 2 night break with the peace, the food, the dogs and our attentive hosts. The Bechstein grand was a bonus! Return trip is definitely on the cards."

"This picturesque rural retreat is like going back in time....hens and delightful dogs running around the garden with its fabulous herbaceous border, a swinging seat, breakfast on the lawn and charming, professional service. Sally is a great cook - warm scones and homemade raspberry jam on arrival and a delicious breakfast each of the two mornings we stayed - with lots of high quality local produce. We had the four poster bedroom which is very spacious and full of charm. With no warning Sally also prepared a wonderful evening meal for us after our very long trip down. We loved our stay."

"It was a pleasure to stay at Wickton Court with Sally, and her dogs and our dog. Just one night, but the full treatment, of course: delicious tea with homemade raspberry jam and fresh baked scones; scrummy dinner to suit my difficult dietary demands; (great fellow guests for lots of conversation); very comfy beds; and everything both quirky in the shabby chic Sawday style, and immaculate. All praise to our host and many thanks. "

"A character house in a stunning situation. Our hosts Sally & Robin&dogs were most welcoming. Our suite was amazing& the bed was super comfy. The setting is so relaxing,park your car for a few days and settle in. The cream tea on arrival was sublime. The suppers were delicious as were the breakfasts. You can borrow the dogs and take them on a walk,play tennis& table tennis or just relax in the beautiful surroundings and enjoy the wildlife. Do not hesitate to stay here but I would recommend 2 nights to fully appreciate it. We will be back again and again. "

"Charming, ancient house surrounded by pretty gardens, great views out towards the Black Mountains, warmest of welcomes which included tea and scones beside crackling log fire, most welcome on a suddenly cooler evening, attractive, friendly dogs and cat, chickens and ducks. Super comfy French beds prettily upholstered in Toile de Jouy, delicately lacy linen (the real thing - cotton), scented garden flowers, super quality coffee and teas. Characterful, beautiful, impeccably hospitable hostess, fine locally sourced food."
