News and information:


Along with booking services in some other areas, we have never had a booking cancelled due to flooding. We sympathise with the bad luck suffered by holiday cottage owners in more exposed locations but, even there, the numbers affected are a tiny fraction of the total available. Don't be put off visiting the countryside by flood reports. If you are uncertain, ring and ask owners or booking services. The rural economy needs visitors and it has a huge amount to offer.  December 29. 2015

Air BNB has a problem

As discussed on our sister website, Air BnB faces difficulty when one bad bit of news strikes its brand across the World.  Businesses such as Wyndham Worldwide with its many brands are not vulnerable in this way.  There are diseconomies in the dream of one mega brand. In this case it appears guests found their holiday place was a drug den. HolidayLetsforSale Article The Telegraph   January 08. 2016


We now have around 8,914 Twitter Followers and 2985 on our sister web site:  We are giving Wyndham Worldwide brand Cottages4You Twitter account a run for its money.  A small regional agency for Hereford cottages and Shropshire Cottages appears to be doing radically well compared to vastly larger booking service.

Recent feedback shows our focus on quality and value:

(These are only a selection)

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."

December 2015 "The accommodation in Horsegames Barn was perfect, very comfortable, plenty of wood for the wood burner. Very good directions to get there. Flexible on times for leaving on the Sunday and very reasonably priced compared to other lets during the xmas period." (CHL owners uoften try to flex arrival and leaving times if the calendar permits).

December 2015 The Barn is a "Super place, spacious and extremely well fitted out , especially the kitchen. Comfortable and cosy. Owners on site very helpful. couldn't have wanted for anything."

December 2015 "We had a lovely stay (at Rose Cottage) thank you very much. The beds and living room furniture were all very comfortable and the shower was great. It was so nice to have such a good bed as often they are old mattresses in holiday rentals with cheap pillows and are not very comfortable, these beds were amazing. Having a fenced back garden was a bonus and enabled the dogs to go outside easily. The house was lovely and quiet and there was no noise from the houses adjoining on either side. The one set of neighbors were lovely and helpful too. The property was spotlessly clean and the lounge was cozy and very warm and inviting. It was so nice to have the Christmas tree and all the board games were a nice touch too, we even left one of ours behind to add to the collection..........."

November 2015 East Barn "Yes, we enjoyed our stay. It was certainly the highest spec cottage we have ever stayed in. The shower in the second bedroom was an absolute luxury and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever experienced...."  See the full review on the cottage page.

November 2015 "Sunnyside was so lovely,so cozy and comfortable.The view,the wood burning,the owl, the sheep, the game room added the beauty of the cottage.We love the cottage very much and would love to come again during summer.Thank you for the excellent service from country holiday let and to Mr Charles Cawley."

October 2015  "We thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing week at Honeysuckle Cottage. We are a family of five with three teenage daughters, none of whose idea of a perfect holiday would normally be in the Welsh countryside. They have been converted however, and enjoyed their stay as much as their parents. We found the cottage perfectly positioned for visiting Ludlow, Hay and Hereford, but also enjoyed walking more locally.
The owners Jenni and Mike could not have been more welcoming or helpful, even taking in an internet food shop prior to our arrival very late on Friday evening. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to any prospective visitors, and hope to return. Charles from Country Holiday Lets was very patient with our indecisiveness, and we were delighted with his Honeysuckle recommendation."

September 2015 "We had a wonderful time at the Old Threshing Barn. The Barn was very comfortable, spacious, and interesting with fabulous views across the gardens. The gardens were amazing and we had some lovely walks around the large land. The owners, and theirs pets, made us very welcome. Really the perfect holiday for us.  A truly magical place which we did not want to leave and hope one day to return."

August 2015 "I booked the wrong dates for my holiday online, so called CountryHoliday-lets to change the dates. The person who answered the phone could not have been more friendly and helpful. The dates were soon changed and I would happily use this company again."  See more on Feefo: Find out here
