    • “Dog-o-licious”

    • “What more could a dog wish for? Great garden, great walks, great local pub, somewhere to rest my weary head and happy parents! Everything was perfect, from the relaxed, warm welcome from the cottage owners, to the privacy of the cottage, even though it was cheek 'n' jowl to their home. Everything had been laid on for our comfort and even though it is just a one bedroomed cottage, it is roomy and very well equipped. Lots and lots to see within 20 minutes drive of the village and really good walking on our doorstep, including that vital 'last thing at night' walk around the mote and bailey that was within yards of our door. Quick tip - the most wonderful farmers market on the first Saturday of the month in Presteigne!”

    • “We had a great week's stay at this beautiful, clean, comfortable cottage. It was an ideal place to stay with our springer spaniel who loved the enclosed garden and the lovely walks we did. The local pub was only one minute's walk away and we experienced a warm welcome whenever we went there. The food was typical pub fare but it tasted fantastic especially the gammon and home made chicken pie. The owners were very helpful and not intrusive. The welcoming eggs, milk and sponge were much appreciated. We know everybody has different tastes and needs but we would not hesitate to recommend this property especially if you have a dog. Ours was welcomed more or less wherever we went although she is a rescue with some issues and can be nervous of strangers. The area was very quiet and we liked watching the sparrows and house martins that were nesting under the eaves.”

    • “Very tempting to write a poor review so there is more availability next time we want to book! However, we've already booked our next stay and a poor review would be very unfair on Robert & Trish and all of you who are yet to discover this amazing Gem. The accommodation was superb. Clean, tidy, well appointed and very spacious. Has only one bedroom but that is large & so is downstairs and the bathroom, not the poky accommodation that sometimes accompanies a one bed cottage. Plenty of room for us and our dog Neo. It truly is a lovely cottage, the owners are very helpful and always available for questions but not intrusive at all. The local pub and the locals are absolutely great and very friendly. We want to move there! The pub, the Royal George is about 100 yards away & is probably the best local in the whole area, with good pub grub, although many others are worth a visit. we spent days out in Ludlow (gorgeous) and the nearest town is Presteigne which is sweet. Cannot recommend highly enough. Absolutely no mobile phone signal but some, including my wife. regard that as a bonus! WiFi, supposedly slow but we had absolutely no problem. Interesting walks from the door step, beautiful countryside & a great pub & friendly locals.......who could wish for more?!!”

    • “I will be honest, we booked this cottage on Sykes Cottages as it was the cheapest of all the cottages with 4 ticks that accepted dogs and how glad we did! The cottage was absolutely ideal, with a private garden for Flynn where we often had breakfast or lunch/dinner. There was a brilliant pub, The Royal George, literally a stone's throw from the cottage where you could have a very good meal and the locals were very friendly. There were some great walks right on the doorstep, which was a bonus since you don't always want to drive somewhere. As for the area, wow! We hadn't been to the Herefordshire/Powys border before but it is stunningly beautiful with fabulous towns and villages in abundance. Visit Hay on Wye, Ludlow and Hereford and many more places for great days out. The cottage is attached to the owners' cottage but don't let this prevent you from booking Chimney Cottage, Trish and Robert were really lovely people, always discrete but available if required. We had a fabulous 2 weeks with, thankfully, wonderful weather. Highly recommended! [Only downside, no washing machine but this was because we were the first to book a fortnight and we were offered the use of Trish & Robert's if we needed.]”

    • “We have just returned from a weeks stay at chimney cottage and what a beautiful place it is, we nearly didn't choose the cottage as it said it was attached to the owners home, however I am so glad we did once there it feels detached and neither the owners home or the cottage really impact on each other it's more like you are neighbours, there is a lovely self contained garden which was great for our 7 month old puppy, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and home from home as possible. There is a local pub 100yds away that does lovely food and welcomes dogs, the locals are very friendly too. It is a lovely village with lots of walks and lots of surrounding areas to visit, we would highly recommend this cottage for a get away from it all break”

    • “My wife and I had a fabulous holiday and staying at Chimney Cottage made it extra special. Lingen is a lovely quiet village and extremely well placed to allow you to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. There is great walking straight from the cottage door and in the wider area. The cottage itself was perfect; spotlessly clean, spacious, well equipped and extremely comfortable; it was a lovely home from home to return to each evening after a days exploring. We couldn't recommend it highly enough and hope to return in the future.”

    Mrs Nugent, Walsall, September 2015

    • “Chimney Cottage is spacious, well presented and the owners are lovely. We had a fantastic week, all in all a great holiday and we will be returning in spring next year.”

    Mr Swift, York, August 2015

    • “Chimney Cottage was delightful, everything we needed was provided for a comfortable week's stay. We had a wonderful time exploring the local lanes and footpaths with our dog, the area was very tranquil. The garden was ideal - a good size for us to relax in and there was plenty of space for our dog to run around. The local pub, a minute's walk away, was friendly and the food was good. We would definitely stay here again.”

    Mrs Mcdermont, Caernarfon, August 2015

    • “A beautiful, deceptively spacious, well equipped cottage. A home from home with everything you might need. A fantastic base to visit the many interesting places in the area. For a relaxed, carefree holiday we can definitely recommend Chimney Cottage.”

    Mrs Haughton, Manchester, July 2015

    • “We enjoyed staying at this lovely cottage. The owners were very helpful and not intrusive. It was ideal for our dog, we all enjoyed the walks and the scenery. We would like to come back again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend the property.”

    Mr Leach, Bude, June 2015

    • “Chimney Cottage is in a beautiful area with lovely local walking that's not too demanding! There is a lot to do within a 15 mile radius. It was an attractive, well appointed cottage that fits the 'chocolate box' ideal. It is fortunate enough to be just a few doors away from a lovely 'local' pub that does pub grub. It is adjacent to the owners property, but it is private and has its own secluded garden with good quality outdoor seating.”

    Mrs White, Dover, June 2015

    • “The owners really made an extra effort to make sure you had everything you would want and it was the cleanest cottage I have stayed in. The garden is secure and lovely, and the cottage was very well equipped. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make it great. What a great place.”

    Mrs Green, Epping, May 2015

    • “Had very friendly owners who were always available if required. Had an excellent shower and very comfortable beds. Everything that was needed was supplied. An absolute quality place to stay.”

    Mr Ward, Bude, April 2015

    • “A wonderful cottage in beautiful peaceful surroundings. An excellent base for a relaxing break or for touring around the area.”

    Mrs Don, Morecambe, April 2015

    • “We had an excellent holiday in this lovely old cottage. It was full of character and exactly as described. The facilities were very good, especially the large shower and bath, and the huge bed. The garden was fully enclosed and ideal for our small dog. The cottage is in a very pleasant small village and near to a nice pub. There are many walks direct from the door in the scenic countryside. Highly recommended!”

    Mr Hipperson, Norwich, March 2015

    • “An excellent property in a lovely isolated environment. The cottage was full of character and had very good owners who were very helpful and unobtrusive.”
