“Exceptionally well-equipped rural retreat”

Probably the best equipped cottage I've ever stayed in, and immaculate on arrival. Rooms are unexpectedly spacious and light. The new 'oak room' is wonderful for sitting watching the sunset (and probably the sunrise too, if you get up early enough!), with lovely views of fields. If you have a dog, this place would be ideal - there's a utility area that would be perfect. Lots of cleaning materials, dog bags, all sorts of very thoughtful items. Didn't need to take anything. Feels very much in the middle of fields and farmland, but is well-situated for visits to Leominster, Ludlow, Hereford or Powys. Great for church crawling - several unique churches in the area. Plenty of pubs in the area for eating out at reasonable prices. Wifi good everywhere in the cottage (which is still unusual). Any downsides? Maybe the steep stairs, but not a problem for us. Main problem was finding the cottage in the first place - suggest you study the map more carefully than we did. Satnav reference sends you about 200yds out, and it's surprisingly hard to find the right place from there, but it's right next to the big barn that used to be black - turn in there.

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stone Cottage exceeded our expectations. We arrived to a welcome pack which included a bottle of wine, much needed after our journey!!
The cottage has everything you could need for your stay. The added bonus of the oak frame conservatory was a lovely surprise. The garden is a delight even in the midst of winter. We had temperatures of -7 so the log burner certainly got full use.
Alfie enjoyed running round the garden which is well enclosed - good thing given the sheep in the neighbouring field!!
We would definitely recommend this cottage for couples and families. Plenty of walks and things to do in the surrounding area. We will certainly be looking to return.

“Great location for exploring Herefordshire”

Welcome pack on arrival. Warm and very clean.
Essential boot/dog room to store walking boots and clean the dog prior to admitting her into the lovely warm house.
Quirky bedrooms, steep stairs.
Kitchen crockery and cutlery plentiful. A large well equipped kitchen.
Superbly comfortable beds.
The caretaker of the property was most helpful when we had a hitch.
My husband and I had a lovely stay and visited the places where we had honeymooned. 40 years ago. We were joined by two friends for part of the holiday and visited with friends who live in Hereford. Beautiful views and walks nearby.

Wonderful property rural herefordshire location but ideally situated for Shropshire ( Ludlow and Stokesey castle a must) and Worcestershire as well as Wales.
The enclosed garden perfect for a lively dog. The cottage provided everything we could require, All we needed to get was our food. Looking forward to returning in June when we will have the opportunity to further explore the area and relax in the garden in the evening. The owners supply a comprehensive series of folders with details of local attractions, walks, dog friendly places and of course eateries as well as maps of the area. They really did think of everything! A gem of a place!

A beautiful cottage set back from the road with a lovely private garden that is fully enclosed so safe for children and pets. Two good size bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Hayley who is the caretaker came round on request when I needed the high chair for my youngest grandson, as my family were coming for dinner her husband came round and gave the grass a quick trim and picked up the fallen apples. Easily sat 8 round the kitchen table for Sunday Lunch. As a keen cook was impressed with the well equipped kitchen. There utensils for children and even a box of things should you have pets. An easy location to visit other places we went to Ludlow, Leominster, Hereford, Ross on Wye, Croft castle to name but a few. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
