Bettws Court Retreats is situated on Bettws Court Farm which was purchased by the Pursey family in 1974. It is a 123-acre farm based on the top of Orcop Hill with steep topography, lending itself perfectly for stunning views, and viable only for livestock farming. The farm is run alongside Trevase Farm. The beef cows are housed in the buildings below the lodges from October to April only coming back to Trevase for a short period of time in March and April to calve. Once the weather has improved the cows and calves graze the fields surrounding the lodges all summer and sheep are also bought up in the Autumn to tidy the grass ready for the winter.
The location and mesmerising views have always been admired and the idea of holiday accommodation has always been in the back of Sarah (and Liz) Pursey’s mind (especially with their experience of running self-catering holiday accommodation: Trevase Cottages and Old Barn House. Sarah returned from working in London in 2017 and decided she wanted to pursue her desire to building luxury accommodation at Bettws Court Farm. After much research and work, planning permission was submitted in February 2019. The whole project has been managed by Sarah through to its completion and launch in 2022. An incredible amount of work has gone into creating the indulgent accommodation you see today.
