Buzzard HouseBrochure Page. 45
In splendid North Herefordshire countryside, this classic Georgian style luxury B&B adjoins farmland, orchards and woodland. It is a short distance from the attractive village of Dilwyn, on the famous Black & White Village and Cider Trails.
This Wolsey Lodge luxury B&B is superbly renovated, spacious, uncluttered and furnished with classic, yet contemporary pieces, including Sheryl and Richard’s beautiful ceramic and glass collection. Brightly coloured soft furnishings highlight and complement colours outside and the effect is very striking. Not one but two sitting rooms for B&B guests offer plenty of communal space to choose a quiet spot to watch television, read by the fire or in warmer months, appreciate the beautiful gardens. These boast magnificent copper beech hedges and benches, for relaxing and enjoying the views.
B&B guest bedrooms, all en suite, are light and airy with garden views, fine linens and toiletries. One, in the annex, has views of both front and back gardens.
Food is very important at Buzzard House. Superb evening meals, accompanied by interesting wines from Richard’s cellar, are available by prior arrangement. Meals are served around a communal table in the elegant conservatory dining room.

The warm welcome, skillful hosting and obvious enjoyment of their Wolsey Lodge guests is genuine, as is their pleasure at working together. They have travelled widely, including living in New Zealand and Australia. Richard is also an avid collector of wine and a keen photographer.
