Hollyhocks is a luxurious riverside cottage available for self-catering holidays, set in the countryside of Leominster, a market town in Herefordshire, England. This unique escape is nestled on the banks of the river Arrow in the old-world village of Eardisland. This region is considered as the most picturesque in the whole of Herefordshire. Beautiful landscaping surrounds the house from lush gardens to an exclusive riverfront setting.

The home itself is steeped in history, “constructed before the last battle of The War of The Roses in 1461, it is believed to be the last resting place for Henry VI’s knights – their red rose paintings still displayed in the dining room today,” states Unique Home Stays. “The 1920s saw The Twinings Tea family take ownership of the house following a fire in the great hall during Victorian times; they laid the parquet floor for their daughter’s wedding.

The Details: This charming cottage sleeps up to six guests (ideally four adults and two children). You can stay here anywhere from three nights to a whole week. Prices range from two guests to a maximum of six guests: $1,005 – $1,591.
