Lower Moor Lodge

Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden
  • Car advised

The cottage, which is over 200 years old, was once the lodge to the Lower Moor Manor and as a result has a wealth of period features, including original flagstone and wooden flooring and wood burning stove, which certainly make this a thoroughly charming holiday cottage. Today the cottage is lovely mix of old and new along with a large garden and view which is ideal for relaxing in. a short walk away is Hay on Wye, the world renowned centre for book lovers, revered for its book festivals and shops. The property is very convenient for the town centre, being a 5 minute walk from the centre. In our opinion the location offers peace and tranquillity while great access to Hay's attractions as well as great restaurants.

Hay on Wye is perhaps best known for the Hay Festival of Literature which occurs each year in the Spring Bank Holiday in late May. Although the festival is clearly famous, Hay is a thoroughly delightful town all year round. Located on the River Wye and straddles the English and Welsh border. A short drive in almost every direction will take you to some stunning scenery, a host of quaint and attractive villages and some simply superb walks. An excellent chouce indeed!!

River Wye and Symonds Yat Cliffs adjacent, Ross-on-Wye, Monmouth, Forest of Dean, Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons, Gower Peninsula, Tintern Abbey, Chepstow, Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Tintern Abbey, Ledbury. Boat trips and canoeing on the Wye. Country walks from the doorstep. Local Inns serving food five minutes

"Housekeeping and general maintenance need to be regularly checked by owner!"

Initially, we found the cottage very cold on arrival - however, once the heating was sorted out it soon became toasty and cosy! The 'cottage suite' was truly uncomfortable although it looked… More

"Generally a pleasant place to stay"

We enjoyed our stay generally and the cottage is very quaint. There is some mustiness to the place and I felt a more thorough spring clean was needed. The garden is very nice, but again it needs a goo… More

"Damp and unwelcoming"

On arrival at the cottage there was a strong smell of damp and, on a cold damp day, the heating had been completely turned off so it didn't feel very welcoming. There wasn't a 'compli… More

Thank you for the feedback. We would have liked to have dealt with the issues from the outset, but equally we do understand that this isn't always possible or ideal when on holiday. We have arranged to visit the cottage at the earliest opportunity (approx 14 days after your visit) and will be inspecting it in view of all your comments, which we would agree are totally unsatisfactory.

Nevertheless we would like to respond to some points on behalf of Manor Cottages, those which need to be clarified for future reference. Our first contact with the customer was when we were advised about the oil running out, approx 4 days into the stay. At no time did Manor Cottages say 'it's not our problem speak to the owner', what we actually said was that we would try to get the oil matter resolved, but we could not guarantee this as we are not the managing agent for this house (we are marketing the property). Nevertheless we did manage to get the oil delivered the same day!! Manor Cottages advised the customer of this immediately.

When the customer returned home, he wrote (understandably) to advise us of all the issues which he felt were in need of highlighting. On reading this we responded immediately and offered a refund of over 25% of the cost of the cottage. This was gratefully received and accepted, but has not been mentioned above.

Although we accept that the points described in the complaint are unacceptable, when we were contacted we acted immediately. This too has not been highlighted in the review. While we fully appreciate that these problems should not have been in existance on arrival, had we been told straightaway we would have tried to get them resolved (as we did with the oil running out) or possibly offer alternative accommodation.

In summary, we are extremely sorry for the inconvenience and the standard that the house was presented in when you arrived. As we say in our directions details, we like to be told asap about these issues and then got to grips with solving them. When we visit the cottage in the near future, we will get the cottage back to the set standard.
