THE cottage is set in a beautiful rural area with a large, secure garden. The cleanliness of the cottage was not up to the standard we expect from a sykes cottage. The wardrobe and chest of drawers in the main bedroom are not fit for purpose. A MAJOR problem with flies and ants.G
We are three family members who booked a five day holiday at Peaceful cottage. Unfortunately as we arrived we were greeted by the very charming owner who informed us that the previous occupants had failed to tell them they had experienced a leak from the upstairs bathroom into the downstairs toilet . Having no time to carry out any repairs we could do nothing other than close it off, still usable but not nice to look at or smell. I had booked it for the downstairs toilet as one of our party had some mobility problems so it was a bit of a disappointment but we lived with it.
Peaceful cottage is in a rural location around 4 miles from the centre of Hereford and the owners have tried to create a rustic welcoming feel to the cottage, however we did feel some of the furniture lacked comfort as a result. Bedding and the bedrooms were clean and well presented, however the oven in the kitchen needed a deep clean as every time we tried to use it there was smoke billowing everywhere setting off the smoke alarm.And on closer inspection think the cleaner may have missed it. Nice pleasant outside space very green and safe for children , but again the pebbled patio needed weeding badly, it was just those little touches that make the difference.
That said we had a lovely holiday, we thought the cottage was reasonably priced and was excellent value for money, the peaceful setting left us feeling relaxed and refreshed and I'd certainly use the cottage again if I was holidaying in the area.
Tip You definately need a car .
