The Bateman Arms offers fantastic rooms, great food and delicious food in Shobdon near Leominster. Dating from 1750, the property was originally built by the former Lord Mayor of London and now offers a wonderful place to stay in rural Herefordshire.
We have 6 beautifully furnished rooms available in the Old Stable block adjacent to the main building. You can choose from double and twin rooms, with some rooms including gorgeous old beams. All the rooms include tea and coffee making facilities, en suite shower/bathroom and complimentary Noble Isle toiletries & fluffy towels.
You can savour an excellent meal at our restaurant, cooked by our team of experienced chefs. Produce is locally sourced where possible and 99% of what we make is homemade. From Herefordshire rib fillet of beef to Snowdonia black bomber souffle, we have something for everyone. In the summer months, you can enjoy a drink or two in the large garden while the children burn off some excess energy.
Herefordshire still remains one of the unspoilt areas of England where visitors can enjoy a more leisurely pace of life and is within easy reach of the spectacular scenery of Mid Wales. Shobdon is also the proud home of the Rococo Gothic Church in the Country. Built in 1756 by the Bateman family, it is a remarkable building and has an arresting almost oriental-looking blue and white interior. Great attractions to visit include:
Westonbury Mill Water Gardens.
Croft Ambrey Hillfort.
