At the Colloquy...
In Brief :
Swimming pool - 32' x 16' (fenced for children)
(NB Guests from Forge and Gardeners may also use the pool for two hours every day by agreement with Colloquy guests, unless exclusive rights are paid for in advance)
Sauna (big enough for 4 - 6)
Hot-tub ( big enough for 4 - 6)
Full size squash court
Badminton net and rackets
Table tennis table
Behind one wall the old potting shed now houses shower, sauna, hot tub and in a separate room the ping pong table. And the old squash court – well, it’s a fully equipped new squash court. In our one hectare walled garden you will find our heated swimming pool, 32' x 16' - perfect for leisurely, or even strenuous, lengths (open May to September); a badminton net; and a beautifully laid out garden.
Beyond the Colloquy’s own garden there are 700 acres of fields, orchards and woodland for you to wander in; and beyond that, 8000 square miles of Wales, Herefordshire, Shropshire and the
Borderlands to explore. Just the thing to stretch the horizons.
The Colloquy is in peaceful Herefordshire farmland (and indeed our working farm, with working sights and sounds, is just across the way). In the open spaces of Herefordshire, ‘on your doorstep’ tends to mean within 30 – 40 minutes unstressed driving; and we’ve go-karting, flying of various sorts, shooting, canoeing and golf (on England’s highest course), as well as riding, both pedal and horseback, and of course, exceptional hill walking.
While for those who prefer to be rather than to do, there’s Hay-on-Wye with its 39 bookshops, the border towns of Kington and Presteigne with their chainstore-free high streets, and Ludlow with its food markets and restaurants to browse. Or you can stay put and stroll in the park... We have four trails that go round our farm, through the woods, over open countryside and connect with other foot paths (from where you can walk to the pub if you wish).

If you like we can take up the strain and do all the organising for you. (There is a commission charge of 15% for this service). Whether it's a full weekend of activities or a mini-bus to the pub just ask our staff we have a directory of activities at our fingertips. Otherwise check some of them out on our bunk off page.
