“A Real Treat”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

Just returned from a long weekend at The Medlar .The House exceeded all expectations. It retains all the character of its 400 years. It is spacious, yet cosy, lovingly restored and lacking nothing. There is a lovely courtyard garden for warmer days with garden furniture. Kington is a lovely town, a step back in history, with independent shops, pubs and cafes. Beuatiful walks from the doorstep and plenty to see futher afield. Highly recommended.

“Quality historical cottage done beautifully.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved this cottage. It has been restored and decorated beautifully and to a very high standard. Just what you need for a quiet get away. Lots of good little extras like books and games. Take your own Nespresso capsules if you have them.

“Perfect break”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed for a week in January with our dog and didn't want to go home!. Beautiful old house that has been brought back to life with care but with all the mod cons.
Conveniently situated just off the high street for everyday needs but so quiet you think you are in the country. The Medlar was made very warm and cosy for our stay and has a great log burner.
Plenty of take aways' nearby and local produce shops. Pubs in walking distance (The Olde Tavern is the best) Lots of walks nearby or a short car journey away.
The owners were very accommodating with extra requests and had thought of everything for an enjoyable stay.

“Instant Relaxation”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The moment we entered the cottage we felt completely at home, Kay and Tim have got everything just right, the cottage is supplied with everything you could wish for. It is a 15th century building but so tastefully renovated that the centuries blend together to produce a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Although we did not eat out in Kington the Medlars is within easy walking distance of local amenities, and the town is well placed for exploring the surrounding area.
The Medlars is so good that it is one of those places that you want to keep to yourself.

“A really beautiful historic property”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We loved staying at the Medlar. It is a very characterful cottage, dating back to the 15th century, with lots of room. It is very well equipped. The twin bedroom is enormous with a seating area. The upstairs bathroom is very stylish. The kitchen diner is really good. The cottage is very close to the centre of Kington which is a lovely old fashioned town - no chain stores here, but lots of local shops - butchers, bakers, antique shops, stationers, chemist and even a clog maker! It is like going back in time.
