Penrhos Court, Herefordshire

Since its first steps, the home of Mamaheaven has been the beautiful and enchanting Penrhos Court, where we have grown with the wonderful support of Daphne Lambert, owner and chef.

Daphne Lambert runs a wonderful kitchen where fresh, organic ingredients are prepared so they offer the utmost in nutritional value. Bread is baked fresh every day and there is also a fine selection of organic wines. Penrhos Court was the first restaurant to be awarded the Soil Association organic symbol and Daphne Lambert is co-author of the Organic Baby and Toddler Cookbook.

The beautiful bedrooms, in the converted threshing barn, are named after birds found nearby. All are non-smoking and have en-suite bathrooms and organic linen.

ancient buildings renovated with love and care…

This is the oldest part of the manor house, dating from about 1280,

The first floor is constructed into squares of about six feet with the joists and then the floor boards in each square at 90 degrees to the adjacent square, giving a chequer board pattern.

The circle or Celtic cross design of the timber construction in the front gable end, seen from the outside, is called cusping and is just for decoration.


Our experience at the retreat was truly wonderful. Having never left my daughter with anyone who was not family, it was a worry for me to leave her in the crèche, but my fears were quashed as soon as I saw my daughter with the lovely staff at Mama Heavan who cared for her so well and allowed me some much needed time to myself. Meeting the other mothers and sharing our experiences was a very emotional and empowering experience for me. Very thought provoking and created a feeling that no one was alone. I left Mama Heaven feeling energised and positive and most of all grateful for my beautiful daughter and the life we have together.
