A beautiful timber-framed farmhouse owned by the National Trust will be open to the public for just one week this summer.

Cwmmau Farmhouse, between Kington and Hay-on-Wye in a remote corner of Herefordshire, is normally a holiday home with views of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons.

But on Friday, 16th June visitors will have the chance to look around its wonderful architecture and the original outbuildings and stables from when it was a working farm and estate.

“Cwmmau is particularly beautiful during the summer months. It shows Herefordshire at its best with some fantastic views across the surrounding countryside," says the National Trust's, Ian Grafton.

Cwmmau Farmhouse, Brilley, Whitney-on-Wye, Herefordshire, HR3 6JP. Open from 16th to 22nd June from 1pm to 4.30pm, and light refreshments are available. Entry is free to National Trust members. For more details call the National Trust on 01568 780246 or visit the charity's Cwmmau Farmhouse page.
