Life on the Hill Hereford | The Dugout



The Dugout, part of Life on the Hill, is an intriguing, turf-roofed earthhouse in the stunning rolling hills of Hereford. Handcrafted and designed by Ed, the owner, it’s a great place to relax, and get back to the fundamentals of life. The perfect place for some wholesome living and to finish that book you’ve been meaning to finish. The Dugout has its own garden, stunning views over the three counties, and is a self-catering accommodation for two. Because it is next to the main house and farm where Ed and his wife live, you will bump into them. They will invite you to the main house for a meal or a cup of tea!
