The Dragon's Gate is named as it's the gateway to neighbouring Wales

We are a farm on the Welsh border with the river Monnow running through. However the view from the cabins is down the Monnow Valley and looking onto the Black mountains.

Demesne Farm is based just outside Garway which has a historical connection to the Knights Templar, bringing visitors to the area. Furthermore our events barn is called The Dragon’s Temple.

Garway Hill which is directly accessible from the Dragon’s Gate is a stunning walk complete with wild ponies and stunning 360 views of Herefordshire. From Garway Hill you can walk on to White Rocks and visit Garway’s Knights Templar Church and Dovecote.


Course and fly fishing can be found locally on the River Monnow and the River Wye. We also have our own trout lake that access can be arranged for. The Honddu, The Usk Valley and the Llandegfedd Reservoir all boasting trout, wild salmon and wild brown trout and pike respectively.


There are so many beautiful on and off-road cycle routes and paths in, through and around Demesne Farm & Herefordshire. The Four Castles Cycle Route can be started and finished in the village and is 32 miles. We'd highly recommend them!


The Dragon’s Gate is surrounded by some fantastic places to eat and drink, our four most local are: The Moon at Garway, The Bridge at Kenchurch, The Angel at Grosmont and the 1861 Restaurant. We frequent them all often so we are happy to advise and we recommend all four!
