Previous visitors' comments about May Cottage:
Herefordshire is spectacularly beautiful and peaceful! The surrounding scenery and walks are outstanding. Something to behold! We were very lucky with the weather! We found the local people to be the friendliest of any County we had visited before. Our dog became a minor celebrity, very dog friendly.

Small and cosy old cottage; we were pleased with it. The cottage is as good as it can be given that it is 500 years old. Owner helpful when I spoke to him. Would use it again.

We had a lovely holiday, the cottage was very cosy and the people in the village were very friendly. There was lots of information about places to go and all about the history of the cottage.
