Guest Reviews


    • “Great accommodation, welcome, views, all round fantastic!!!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “I booked this accommodation as a 'get away from it all' place to get some much needed study completed. On my arrival the accommodation was spotlessly clean and a real home away from home! So peaceful and relaxing...almost a little too relaxing given the amount of work I had to do! Candy the owner was a great host and the welcome pack provided on arrival is the best I've ever seen. I was left reluctant to return to the hustle and bustle of the real world! I will definitely be returning so I have an opportunity to explore the beautiful countryside surrounding the property, in fact if this property wasn't already booked I would have extended my booking and stayed a few more days! Can't recommend this property enough!”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We've just spent a week at this fantastic cottage. On arrival we were greeted by Candy. The owner and what a lovely person. Very helpful. When we walked into the cottage, Candy had left a lovely welcome tray/basket for us with fresh bread, eggs, wine and even some provisions in the cupboards just incase you forget anything. The place is spotlessly clean and very cosy. You are located about 10 mins drive from Leominster, where you will find supermarkets, fuel and some rather nice cafés. To the south, there is Queenswood estate. This has lovely woodland walks and In Kingsland village, you have two hostelries, The Corners and The Angel. Both serving excellent food and drink. You are also located in an area known as the black and white trail. This trail follows a route of about 40 miles around some very picturesque towns and villages, all with the famous black and white timber framed buildings. We have enjoyed our stay so much that we booked for next year.”

    • “A hidden gem!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have had short stay holidays all over the UK this year, but this little gem is by far the best! The elevated position gives sweeping views over rolling countryside in all directions and is perfect for wildlife and bird watching. From the moment we arrived, we could start straight on to our relaxing break due to the warmth of the welcome, the unusual generosity of the well thought out "Welcome Pack", the very comprehensive equipment and the comfortable high quality furnishings - not to mention the beautiful flowers. This little holiday let is more like a 'home-from-home' due to the care and thought put into it by the considerate and helpful owners. With lovely walks and places of interest on the doorstep + old towns like Leominster, Hereford and Ludlow with in easy reach, we definitely plan to return soon in a different season.”

    • “What a fabulous setting and what a great welcome! Loads to do and see round about and a very well-equipped property. Lots of bird life - we heard a cuckoo within a minute of arrival. So peaceful and off the beaten track but by no means remote. Excellent directions made it easy to find. We shall return!”

    • “Croft View was a well presented and comfortable apartment with a magnificent view of the countryside. There were plenty of walks and interesting places to visit in the local area. We had a really wonderful break!”

    Mrs Sasson, London, August 2015

    • “A comfortable base set in beautiful countryside, we were made to feel very welcome by the owner. There was plenty to see and do in the area. A great and very relaxing holiday.”

    Mrs Burchell, Hebden Bridge, April 2015

    • “Liked the location with stunning views, the general comfort of accommodation, the genuine warmth of the welcome and the care and attention to detail.”

    Mrs Marum, Warwick, April 2015

    • “Croft View is a wonderful cottage set in a picturesque location. Everything is just as mentioned in the description. The views from the cottage are absolutely stunning, the location of the cottage provides ample opportunities for bird watching and also for some amazing walks. Altogether this is fabulous.”

    Mr Radhan, Harrow, December 2014

    • “We can only wholeheartedly agree with all the comments made by previous visitors that Croft View is a little gem. It was a late decision to have a few days away and the welcome and amenities could not have been better. Even the weather for late October was kind to us.”

    Mr Hewitt, Sutton Coldfield, October 2014

    • “On our arrival at Croft View, the owner welcomed us. On entering the cottage, there was a lovely welcome basket of goodies, including fresh bread, cheese, eggs, chocolates and even some provisions in the cupboards just in case. The cottage itself is wonderful. Spotlessly clean and prepared to a very high standard. The owner is a lovely person and nothing is too much trouble. The location is perfect for peace and quiet. The only sounds we heard were the tractors bringing in the harvest, and the wildlife. We would highly recommend staying at Croft View. A beautiful place, in a wonderful county.”

    Mr Findlay, Scarborough, September 2014

    • “The standard of the accommodation is the best that we have encountered. We were made to feel really at home. Even the dogs were happy!”

    Mrs Nicholas, Hawick, September 2014

    • “The location is perfect for exploring Herefordshire, Shropshire and Powys. The apartment is light and airy with marvellous views, in a beautifully quiet and secluded setting. It is tastefully decorated, very well equipped and spotlessly clean.”

    Mrs Haynes, Melton Mowbray, July 2014

    • “We loved the quiet area and the great welcome, the welcome food basket and snacks! There is so much to see in the area that we intend to return at some point. The accommodation was ideal for us and really could not be improved upon in our opinion. The Farmers Market in Leominster was an added bonus on the Saturday of our stay. The owner was great at suggesting places to visit, like the Elan Valley and Ludlow.”
