September 2016 "We had an absolutely wonderful short break in the Old Threshing Barn. The most well equipped accommodation we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot)! The gardens were superb - Richard and Cary were very friendly and helpful - the dogs and cats were very well behaved - a property in a superb location and only five minutes from Kington where there are excellent butchers and bakers and a choice of supermarkets. We will certainly be back."

September 2016 "My wife and I had a very enjoyable week, the accommodation was fist class, somewhat more remote than we anticipated but beautiful and peaceful never the less. We would definitely recommend "Mollys Barn" for a chill out break."

September 2016 "We had a fantastic week at The Granary. The cottage exceeded our expectations and it was a real privilege to be able to stay in such a wonderful historic building. It was equipped with everything we could possibly have wanted and Jan and John were such friendly and helpful hosts. We loved the quiet and peaceful location and found lots to do in the area."

August 2016: From a letter of thanks to someone who booked the Old Stables: 'J is still banging on about the dolls house (Wendy House) and when I ask what she will tell them at nursery about her holiday about the whole week, it is she played in the dolls house.  Good choice of property.'

September 2016 "Hi, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Parks Cottage. The house is lovely and the location was perfect for us. Please let the owners know, we will return"

September 2016 "Longbarn was great, lovely cottage and lovely host. The area is delightful and we would recommend both the area and the cottage to all and sundry."

September 2016 "We found Rose Cottage extremely comfortable with everything we needed provided. the quality of furnishing and accessories was of a very high standard. The beds and bedding first class. The location was perfect peaceful and with a pleasant private outdoor garden space. All this allied with it,s close proximity to the amenities of all that leominster has to offer. Would highly recommend to anyone and will definately use again whenever we visit the area. With thanks and regards Mike."

September 2016 "We had a lovely week thank you, Jenny was extremely friendly and helpful going out of her way to make sure we had what we needed. Honeysuckle was very comfortable, clean and well equipped and of course the view is stunning........ "

September 2016 "Horsegames Barn was fantastic, well equipt and loved the fire! Great value for money"

August 2016 "We had a fabulous time at Coachmans Cottage. Everything about the cottage and its surroundings were amazing. The cottage is equipped and decorated to the highest standard and we couldn’t find fault at all. Teh owner was there to greet us when we arrived; more than three hours later than planned, thanks to traffic congestion and roadworks! What a fantastic place to spend a holiday. The weather was very kind to us and we were able to sit on the patio every evening to eat our meals, listening to the swallows in the barn and later, as darkness fell, the owls. Anyone who wants a holiday away from it all couldn’t do any better than Coachmans Cottage. We cannot recommend it highly enough."

August 2016 "We had an excellent holiday at The Barn and were very happy with the accommodation and contact with the owners............"

August 2016 "Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at the Artist’s Retreat. Judy and Stephen were wonderful hosts and the property itself is amazing. My wife absolutely fell in love with the floor to ceiling picture window looking from the bedroom into the woods. It was so calming to see all the birds come to the feeders hanging from the tree (and our dog loved it too!). The tranquility of the area is great, and we were fortunate enough to talk to Stephen about his artwork and thinking process.
It’s rare to get the luxury of chatting with one of the UK’s most significant sculptors! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be coming back again as soon as we can! Many thanks for a great break."

August 2016 "I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our stay at The Lanes. The cottage was charming and everything was lovely and clean (no need to wash cutlery and plates before use as sometimes happens!). The location was perfect for days out to local gardens, Ludlow, Hay on Wye...and we enjoyed our meals at the local and friendly community pub in Dilwyn. Also good for an evening stroll. And wonderfully peaceful. Thank you also for the amazingly swift replies from the office regarding key collection. And a further thank you for offering flexible stays when sometimes a whole week is not possible. Brilliant all round! Thank you so much. You are now on my favourites list and we look forward to booking with you again."

August 2016 "Just to say we had a wonderful stay at East Barn, last week. The barn conversion has been completed imaginatively and to a high standard; it provided excellent accommodation for the five of us. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and there were so many thoughtful little touches that made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. We have been lucky enough to travel extensively in recent years and have stayed in rented accommodation throughout the world, some wonderful and others much less so! East Barn is one of the very best places we have stayed and we would recommend it without reservation. We hope to return in the new year. Thank you for your help with the booking and for drawing our attention to East Barn through your web-site." 

August 2016   "We stayed at Honeysuckle last week with our son, daughter in law and grandson. The cottage was superbly equipped throughout and worked well for us and the owners were very helpful and not intrusive at all. It was a relaxing holiday home for us to use with fantastic views!"

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.."
