The Cottage of Content


Originally The Cottage of Content was built in 1485 as three labourers cottages for the Mynor family. This was on the condition that one of the tenants kept an ale & cider parlour in one room, so the 'Cottage' has been a licensed house for quite some time.

Today great food and good ales are served in a convivial and informal atmosphere, where all are encouraged to join the social aspects of pub life.

The Cottage of Content offers overnight accommodation with 3 Double En-suite bedrooms and 2 Twin rooms with  shared bathroom facilities.  

Carey itself is a small hamlet five hundred yards from the banks of the river Wye. Carey has maintained a very traditional feel where the hectic pace of modern life has passed it by. This allows guests the opportunity for relaxing country walks in a truly rural atmosphere. Guests can also enjoy day trips to other beauty spots within easy reach of the Cottage.

This beautiful part of Herefordshire has been described as one of the few remaining unspoilt beautiful areas of Britain making it perfect for that weekend get away.
