    Beautiful accommodation. Everything was top class - brilliant location for shopping, eating out and sightseeing. Comfortable beds, and the semi permanent baby gates made our stay more relaxing without worrying our 12 month old toddler would fall down the stairs in this “ upside down” accommodation! Highly recommended.

    We had an excellent holiday in Herefordshire to which The Drying House contributed significantly. It is an outstanding property situated in a quiet courtyard only a minutes walk from the main street in Ledbury. The property itself is beautifully presented, sizeable and very well equipped. Sally, the owner, is intent on making your stay a comfortable one. Ledbury has a number of very good restaurants, many independent shops and fantastic old buildings and history. It is also a great base from which to visit the local area. The Malvern have fabulous walking (The British Camp we would certainly recommend). Hereford, Gloucester, Tewkesbury and Ross on Wye / Symonds Yat are all within twenty miles. It is an area to which we shall certainly return and, when we do, we should like to stay at The Drying House again.

    We come from Sussex and met up with family from Sunderland. The cottage was ideally located as we also have family living in Hereford so were able to see them too. The cottage had the "Wow" factor and we all felt completely comfortable and at home. We ate out most evenings, but then went straight back to The Drying House and played Trivial Pursuits which was one of the many games provided. The owners were delightful and around most days, although we found no problems with the cottage and did not need to contact them in that regard. We will definitely book up again when visiting the area.

    Having grown up in Ledbury it was important for us to find somewhere we could regularly stay at that felt like home. The house is lovely, very well equipped and it's location is perfect for all the brilliance that is Ledbury and the surrounding areas.
