May 2016 "We had a lovely holiday in the Old Threshing Barn once again."

April 2016 "We had a lovely time at The Coachmans Cottage, the facilities are excellent and the location is stunning , our hosts could not do enough to make our stay as pleasant as possible we look forward in the future to visit again."

April 2016 "We had a wonderful time at Sorrel, thank you! Alan and Jane were amazing. We'd arrived at Ludlow and didn't have a taxi booked, and couldn't get a cab to take us. Alan and Jane were totally unfazed and very kindly gave us a lift.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable. I was really impressed. Alan and Jane are obviously very thoughtful as it had everything we needed, including a fire set up ready to go in the woodburning stove and milk in the fridge. It's a wonderfully quiet and beautiful location. The booking process was simple and everything went smoothly. Thank you for a great stay!"

April 2016 "We very much enjoyed our holiday in Rose Cottage. It was warm, comfortable and well equipped. The surrounding area was very beautiful and offered lots of interesting things to do and see. We would very much like to make another visit before too long."

April 2016    " We had a great stay at The Old Stables, great sized house for a large group with everything you could need and more. Beautiful house in beautiful surroundings......."

April 2016  "We have just returned from a wonderful 11 night stay at East Barn. We cannot speak highly enough about this property. It is well situated for visiting this lovely area of Shropshire and Herefordshire. Something for everyone....... (Please see the extensive feedback on the cottage web page)

.....We received prompt confirmation of the booking and the owner quickly got in touch with location details etc. They were easy to follow....... When I contacted her by phone she was very helpful and friendly, suggesting we could enter the property early on the arrival day and leave later on the leaving day. This was very helpful and much appreciated. We would like to say a very big THANK YOU for giving us the opportunity to stay in this “ gem of a find “.

We have no hesitation in recommending East Barn and hope to return at some time in the future if we have another holiday in Shropshire."

April 2016  "We had a great time in Hopton. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and warm and the location is stunning. We saw the owners a few times and they were very friendly and it was great to have fresh eggs from their hens....."

April 2016  "My wife and I spent three days at Artist's Retreat. It was the perfect place on many accounts. The owner made us feel very welcome. the building has been converted from a blacksmith's forge. Modernisation has ensured comfortable living with a well-equipped kitchen, expansive suite and wood burning stove. However, the most important feature was the floor to ceiling window in the bedroom.

Garden birds love the feeders and we were entranced by the antics of a huge range, including woodpeckers, finches and nuthatch. The battles between the squirrels and the birds was fascinating. Such was the spectacle, that it provided every excuse for a lazy lie in! The narrow roads leading to the property offer a great degree of privacy..... We will be returning"

March 2016 Thanks - we had a lovely few days at Pheasant Cottage......... The accommodation was warm, comfortable and beautifully presented and the surrounding area was very attractive. The local information provided by Neil and Sally was helpful and informative and we found the whole stay very relaxing. We'd certainly recommend it!

March 2016 We really enjoyed our stay at The Lookout. It is about the closest you can get, in stylish comfort, to a working farm and we loved having all the healthy, happy animals around us. The owner and her family could not have been kinder or more welcoming.

March 2016 "Callow View was lovely and very well equipped. The owners were very friendly and approchable.Perfect position for us and we may be booking again as we have more race weekends this year that we need accommodation for."

February 2016 "We had a great time at The Granary. A quiet, idyllic spot with beautiful accommodation. A well equipped cottage which was spotlessly clean. Time to recharge our batteries and enjoy the Herefordshire countryside"

February 2016 "We had a great break at Sunnyside and would say it was very good value for money and would recommend it wholeheartedly...."

January 2016 "We had a superb holiday this January in the Cider Press Barn. The location was ideal for us as it is nestled in glorious countryside with walks from the doorstep, further afield there are black and white villages and interesting places to visit in every direction. The property itself is particularly well appointed and was spotlessly clean. There were some very welcome treats upon arrival as well. The bedrooms are delightful and the spa bathroom a real bonus. We would stay here again and would recommend to anyone looking for a holiday property in the Hay-on-Way / Leominster areas."

Our service

February 2016 "Very easy to use website and very straight forward on line booking process.Confirmation of booking, directions to propery and contact name and telephone number sent very quickly.

Prior to booking on line I rang the office and spoke to a very friendly and helpful gentleman who knew the property and its location. He was able to answer my questions, was appreciative of some concerns I had and was able to reassure me that we would not be isolated.Being able to speak to someone who knew the property was very helpful.The website had good photographs of the property and a comprehensive description. An excellent company who I will certainly use again. Thank you.."
