    A lovely little cottage hidden in beautiful countryside with heaps of character. We stayed over the Easter weekend for 3 nights. On arrival the owner had put eggs and milk in the fridge and there was tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits too. We found it to be very well equipped with literally everything you could need. The cottage was lovely and warm but we Couldn't resist lighting the fire in the evenings. The cottage is about 4-5 miles of very tight country roads to get anywhere so be prepared by taking everything you need if you don't want to drive anywhere. The sofa was a little uncomfortable but on arrival the owner had left us a note to say that a new sofa had been ordered, however it didn't affect our stay. The bed was very comfortable and probably the best bed we've ever slept in on a break. All in all we had a fantastic time and our dog loved it too!! We will definitely be going back.

    This little cottage was good for 2 people set in a very private setting and peaceful and remote part of Herefordshire. It was very well equipped, had plenty of hot water and towels and backed up with the log fire was very warm. The bed was clean and comfortable and a welcoming vase of daffodils were in place for our arrival. Wi fi worked very well. However, although the cottage appeared to be clean on arrival on closer inspection was in need in areas, of some attention. I got the impression that perhaps the cottage had not been let out for some time as although the cottage may have been cleaned after the last visitors I felt in my opinion that maybe the cottage had stood empty and gathered residue on surfaces. There was a residue/dusty film on cutlery and dishes and work surfaces. Because of the size of the cottage utensils, saucepans and dishes were on the worktop exposed surface under the stone stairs leading to the bedroom resulting in my having to wash everything prior to using. The bath also although looking clean had to be washed due to a dusty film on it. The Quilt was so extremely heavy and bulky we had to go to the shops the following day and purchase a quilt. What looked to be a new 2 seater vynil sofa that you could only sit upright to attention in was very rigid, small, and restrictive and as a result very, very uncomfortable!! We did enjoy our stay very much however and will certainly visit another of your properties in the near further. Thankyou Susan

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. I clean the property as thoroughly as possible between visits, but when the cottage is occupied over several weeks, it is not always possible to cover every area particularly when some visitors are late in leaving. The quilt is replaced with a lighter one in the spring, but alternative bedding is kept in the cupboard throughout the year. The sofa is going to be replaced.

    The Cottage Shop was beautiful and in a very tranquil setting. The only thing that let it down for us was the modern sofa was very uncomfortable.

    The cottage is beautiful with lots of character. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we would need for the week including a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The bathroom had both a bath, shower and separate toilet which was perfect for us. The bedroom was up a steep flight of concrete steps and the floorboards moved under our feet in the bedroom which we found to be very quaint and added to the character of the 300 year old cottage. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was plenty of cupboard space as well as night lights and a torch should it be needed. There is also a hairdryer and a stereo should it be needed. Downstairs in the small living room there was a dining table which we found handy, a variety of books and games as well as dvds and music should we need them. The wood fire was amazing and all the bits you needed were available to us to start with, then we had to buy any extra (and we needed to as we had a fire every night!) The only negative was the sofa as it was a hard white leather sofa that only sat two and had no give in it so was very much like sitting on a wooden bench. We tried adding pillows and cushions but found this meant we couldn't fit on it and as my husband is not a small man we ended up sitting apart with me on the sofa and him on one of the dining chairs. Not very romantic! Suffice to say we came home early. Such a shame as otherwise it would have been fabulous.

    It was absolutely fantastic and we will definitely be going back soon. Beautiful countryside and footpaths leading from the front door in all directions! Perfect for exploring the surrounding hills.

    The approach to the cottage from the parking area was down a grass slope which was awkward when wet, otherwise everything else was great.

    Fantastic cottage!nice and secured. I noticed a review before I went talking about the garden not being 100% flat and the stairs being steap.... This is a 300 year old cottage not a purpose built bungalow - I love the character! Great outdoor seating area and garden with another seating area all not over looked and private. We walked for 25 mins and didn't see another person. Very pretty - lots of public footpaths on the door step. I would advise taking food as due to the fantastic rural location the supermarket is about 25 mins away - so plan your food! Cooking facilities good, bed was fantastic. Loved that there was a bath (great for relaxing after a long walk) . Cottage was warm and cosy. We will certainly be back :) couldn't have asked for more !! Oh yes and we forgot our dog lead and it was posted back to us - very kind :)
