    • “lovely, warm and comfortable.”

    • “One of the best cottages my husband and I have stayed in. The cottage has a very welcoming feel about it , a real home from home. It is very well stocked and has everything you would need for a self catering holiday. They do provide bed linen and towels. It has a very large garden which is secure and perfect for children and dogs. The floors inside the property are stone so no worries with dogs about ruining carpets.we went in the autumn and the house heated up quickley and was very cosy, we used the log burner a couple of times which was very easy to use. The bed and lounge furniture is very comfortable. The bottle milk was very much appreciated and the flowers lovely. They have lots of leaflets and info on things to see and do. One of our favourite places being symonds yat. Lots of lovely walks on the doorsteps including a bridlepath right outside the gate, fab for dogs. I would highly recommend this cottage”

    • “Fabulous quiet weekend”

    • “Really well revamped cottage with excellent sized fully enclosed garden for the dog. Excellent facilities for barbecue and owners extremely friendly and accommodating. Would definitely consider again as while slightly isolated location makes it really personal but still within 2 mins walk of the pub. Only tiny downer was it could probably do with a slightly bigger TV for the evenings in.”

    • “From the moment we pulled up on the drive, it felt as if we'd come home. Point cottage is extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated, with a pleasant garden big enough for the kids to burn off some steam. The owners are very friendly and eager to make your holiday experience as pain-free as possible. Indeed, we have never rented a holiday cottage so well stocked (even cleaning equipment, barbeque tools and logs for the fire). If there was one negative it was the lack of a freezer but even this wasn't disastrous; after all, Hereford is only a short drive away. We would highly recommend Point cottage to anyone wanting to explore the myriad delights of Herefordshire - especially anyone with an interest in nature.”

    • “Lovely rural cottage set just outside a peaceful village. Owner on hand when required otherwise left alone to reflect the peace and quiet. Great enclosed garden for dog. Massive outbuilding for storage or relaxing. Only criticism is that as we stayed for 2 weeks a freezer would have been nice as there are no shops in the village. Would certainly return.”
