Barbara, date of stay: January 2020.

This is a beautiful comfortable house perfect for a long weekend. It's close to Hereford and Hay-on-Wye in lovely countryside. We always come in January for a family get-together and it's wonderfully cosy, great for long walks, lounging by the fire and cooking (and eating!) big meals but it would be gorgeous in the summer as the gardens are so lovely. It's always immaculately presented and the bedrooms are blissfully comfortable. There's loads of space, so perfect for families holidaying together or for big groups. The owners are great and a joy to deal with. Highly recommended!
