News and information:


After considerable work, we have made our web site fully mobile friendly. As our site is bespoke to produce a good 'front end', we could not use standard plug-ins but had to ask our developers Logichound to do substantial work. The new site has bedded in very well and is already beginning to pay for the improvements. 5 October 2015


We now have around 8,896 Twitter Followers and 2963 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.

(These are only a selection)

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 "The Barn was perfect - need I say more! Beautiful house - bedrooms all en suite, clean, fresh and tidy. Beds really comfy - nice linen. Lovely setting - despite the rain! Funny dogs. And - most importantly Caroline - what a lovely lady. So friendly and welcoming. (Great cake too!!). We had a great family break. Would gladly recommend."

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."

November 2015 Coachmans Cottage "Very enjoyable stay. Lovely accomodation in a fabulous setting."

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." 

October 2015 The Old Stables:  "The house and location were excellent. We commend the trust the owners have for providing a fully equipped family house - very generous indeed - and very enjoyable. We hope to go again."

October 2015 "We have just spent a week in Cider Press Barn which we thought was fabulous. The Barn was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and decorated and finished off to a very high spec. We thought that the property was very well equiped and we loved the luxurious spa bathroom. The location is perfect for peace and quiet but easy and not far to go to various different places all within an easy drive.
Overall a very pleasant holiday, very relaxing and a very welcome and comfortable Barn. We would love 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
