The Heart of England/Peak District

Herefordshire offers visitors the chance to journey through lush green countryside, enjoying splendid black-and-white timbered villages, a magnificent cathedral city, a fairytale Georgian castle at Eastnor or books galore in famous Hay-on-Wye.


Situated on the River Dore, the delightful village of Abbey Dore lies at the southern end of the Stunning Golden Valley, close to the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park. The village is the setting for Abbey Dore Court Gardens, which is open to the public between April and September. The history of the Abbey goes back to 1147 when it was founded by Cistercian Monks, and then restored to its present form in the 18th and 19th Centuries. The town of Hay-on-Wye, famous for its many bookshops, is just 15 miles away. Nearby Hereford is an ancient town dating back to the 7th century and is steeped in history, while Offa's Dyke and the Wye Valley provide ample opportunity for walkers.

Thank you for your review which Sykes Cottages and the owners were very sorry to receive. When the issues arose during your stay in December 2010 the owners reacted immediately and went out of their way to help and try to rectify the issues. The owners take their role and responsibilities as owners very seriously and their guests' safety is very important to them. They visited your party on numerous occasions to keep you informed of how they were trying to rectify the situation. A chimney sweep came to sweep all the chimneys, the builders came back and checked all the chimneys, and no faults were found. The fires and chairs were all in perfect working order before your arrival. The owners advised you not to use coal on the wood fires but unfortunately you continued to do so, hence the smoke filled rooms. The owners are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay in their lovely home and apologised to you at the time as they do again now.
