“Comfortable and convenient” The interior is decorated and equipped to a high standard guaranteeing comfort and pleasure. The view from the patio is wonderful. The kitchen makes self-catering easy and if this is too much trouble, Gill and Peter will cater a delicious dinner for you. The location is very peaceful and there are several picturesque local towns and villages where you can sight-see, shop and eat. Lovely!
“Wonderful house, beautifully presented - but very remote” 17 of us hired this house for a hen weekend. The house was absolutely beautiful, the photos really don't do it justice. Communication was great and really quick, very professional. The cleanliness was second to none, everywhere was spotless - even the high ceilings with beams!
The indoor pool is separate to the main house so need to go outside to get to it, it does have its own changing room and shower however. The water could have been a touch warmer!
The only downside to the house is the location, it really is very remote and nothing in walking distance. So if you're happy to stay in the house and it's surrounding gardens then this is the place for you!
“A Perfect Break” We stayed in the Goose Cotts for three nights, and we will definitely be back to stay there again. The accommodation is fantastic, a beautiful old building professionally modernised to a very high standard and very well equipped. Everything about this property is comfortable and Ken and Ruth are the most friendly of hosts.
The area is spectacular too. We deliberately chose not to use the car while there and to simply have a relaxing weekend, walking and eating at the splendid local pubs (Bull's Head, Craswall and Bridge, Michaelchurch). The views of the mountains on one side and the rolling Hereford hills on the other are amazing. We ventured slightly further afield on our way home, and next time we will explore the area a little more.
If you want a quiet break, Duke's Farm is perfect.
“Excellent week at the medlar!!” We enjoyed fantastic week away at the medlar after a very wet week camping prior to arrival. Was very glad of the warmth and comfort!! Very well equipped cottage. Washing machine, iron, ironing board and washing line in the lovely courtyard were essential and well used. We were able to park the car with all camping equipment in designated space behind the cottage and other car that was in use every day in car park down the road which was so handy. Very impressed and will definitely recommend to others.
“A great place to stay for those that like the quiet life.” We rented the upper apartment in May 2012 and were impressed enough to return in 2013 to rent the lower apartment. Both apartments have been recently refurbished and offer quality accommodation with everything you need for a quiet vacation in the Herefordshire countryside. Both apartments have wireless Internet access, convenient for looking up all the places to visit. The grounds also has a small lake with a resident wild fowl population so take your binoculars. Our only reservation is that if you are over five foot ten inches I would go for the upper apartment as the lower apartment has low ceilings given that it is a former cider press. Parts of the main house are reputed to be 500 years old so has lots of of history for anyone interested in old buildings. One last thing, the owners, Tim and Abi who live in the big red house attached ( not sure where 'White House' originated) are the most friendly and helpful hosts we have experienced in almost 30 years of staying in holiday cottages. We will be going back in 2014 but this time we will be taking our paint-boxes. What more can we say.

Rivington Barn Luxury Holiday Cottage
Rivington Barn, Little Howle Farm
Fantastic accommodation, spotlessly clean with all the comforts of home and more.
The owner(Amanda) went out of her way to make us feel welcome and we particularly appreciated the little extra touches like the bottle of wine,the eggs and the fresh bread delivered to our door for our first morning's breakfast.
We loved the layout of the barn with the living accommodation being upstairs. Both of the downstairs bedrooms are spacious with extremely comfortable beds and beautiful ensuite bathrooms with bath and separate shower. There is even underfloor heating.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave. …
Trinity Lad - Much Dewchurch, Herefordshire. Sleeps 6
Beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting
The cottage is in an ideal position, the amazing Forest of Dean and all its attractions are easily accessible. We visited because my daughter was running Blaze the Bibblins. A fell race in the heart of the Forest. It is a hard race but in spectacular setting. The cottage was perfect, clean, spacious and very welcoming. The Black Swan Pub was great for an evening meal. Staff could not have been friendlier. We tried the rifle shooting next door to the cottage, which was good fun. …
The Cider Press at Brinsop
Warm and friendly welcome. Charming self contained cottage. Lovely “touches” included fresh flowers, home made bread and even a home baked caked! Peaceful, scrupulously clean and set in beautifully maintained gardens. A good base from which to explore Wales and many quintessential villages! …

Dukes Farm Holiday Cottages, Craswall, Hereford
Can we move in?!!!
What a find!
Yes it’s in the sticks, but if you want to walk the black mountains, go into Hereford or wales this is the place to be!! (You need a car)
The cottage was perfect so well equipped, warm cosy (endless supply of logs) and our three dogs loved it! No noise, walks at your front door, beautiful stars at night and Ruth and Ken were AMAZING! There if you need them but also left alone to enjoy your holiday.
Close by is beautiful Hay-on -Why , Hereford , Ludlow .... the list is endless!
Thank you for a wonderful week away.
Not only did my wonderful man propose to me which made my week but we totally relaxed and spent quality time together ! We will be back ... sooner rather than later! Thank you Ruth and Ken , see you soon xxx …
