Highfield - Bed & Breakfast Leominster - Please note we do not accept credit or debit cards
Highfield is a very comfortable house that was built around 1901. It stands in an acre of garden surrounded by open farmland, with views of distant hills in Wales and Shropshire, just 1.5 miles along the Ivington Road from the old market town of Leominster in Herefordshire.
There are three bedrooms available to guests. All the rooms are spacious and attractive with delightful out-looks. They have trays and kettles for making drinks, and radio alarm clocks, one room has an en-suite bathroom, and the other two have wash basins and bath/shower rooms across the landing. The house is centrally heated but we do provide convector heaters in the rooms should extra heating be necessary.
The en-suite room has twin beds, oak ones from the 1930’s (modern mattresses though!) A built in wardrobe with oak coloured louvre doors and the rest of the furniture is oak coloured as well. The walls are a delicate apricot/beige colour, with a gold coloured carpet and pretty floral curtains with toning background and blue and apricot flowers. The bedspreads pick up the apricot colour and the two easy chairs match the green foliage in the curtains. The room faces south east and so receives the morning sun. As there are windows on two walls there are views of the garden and of sheep and lambs frolicking in the field behind the hawthorn hedge on the opposite side of the road.
The twin bedded room, also facing the same way, is painted a deep rose pink and has blue curtains and bedcovers with tiny floral motifs matching the colour of the walls. The carpet is blue and the furniture pine. The out-look from this room is similar to that of the en-suite room.
Room with double bed faces west and looks out on to the garden patio and fields with the sight of distant Shropshire hills . The walls are blue as are the curtains (the same fabric as the pink room)and carpets. There is an Edwardian mahogany wardrobe in this room and the rest of the furniture compliments the mahogany colour. This room looks out over the patio and then a planted field.
There is a breakfast menu displayed in the bedroom and we like it if people indicate to us the night before what they would like. This is a great help for preparation as we need only provide food required, and can also then supply a reasonable choice of breakfast dishes.
The dining room at the front of the house also has a bay window and so breakfast is often taken in bright sunshine. The walls are painted in a warm harvest gold colour . The main dining table in the centre of the room is a grand Victorian Chippendale style table with ball and claw feet. It has chairs to match. In the window there is an oval oak gate-leg table with barley sugar legs suitable for two people. There is another small rectangular table in one corner which will seat another two people, so there is room for the guests to dine at separate tables.

Downstairs there are two sitting rooms for the use of visitors :
The lounge at the back is the Television room and has sage green walls with matching carpet. There is a 1930’s early Ercol suite in a tapestry fabric of brightly coloured flowers and foliage toning well with the walls and carpet. There are two rose coloured button-backed chairs as well. Other furnishings include an Edwardian mahogany chiffonier with a fine mirror attached. There are French windows in this room which open on to the patio behind the house and a huge brick fire-place that is very much in use in the Autumn, Winter and Spring when we have roaring log fires going. Because the French windows face west we sometimes see very beautiful sunsets.
The front sitting room is often flooded by morning sunlight through the large bay window and is therefore known as the morning room. The heavy Edwardian suite has floral loose covers to tone in with the deep rusty pink walls, and there is a white cast iron Victorian bedroom fireplace in which fires burn in the cooler seasons. It is in this room that there are books and leaflets with information about the area, walk books and maps, and all may be borrowed by guests during their stay .
We do accept single occupancy in the non-en-suite rooms, but may charge a little extra per person per night in the busier times of the year.
