    “A perfect Christmas experience.”

    Eightlands is a delightful little cottage, so cosy, tastefully renovated and furnished, and well equipped. Xmas tree and decorations superb. Welcome little touches on arrival included a bowl of chocs, milk in fridge, biscuits, tea, coffee and toiletries. Woodburner roaring away. The hosts, Fiona and Mark, who live next door are very kind and helpful yet discrete and the best we have experienced. The bed is the most comfortable we have ever slept in away from home.

    Eightlands is a delightful little cottage, so cosy, tastefully renovated and furnished, and well equipped. Xmas tree and decorations superb. Welcome little touches on arrival included a bowl of chocs, milk in fridge, biscuits, tea, coffee and toiletries. Woodburner roaring away. The hosts, Fiona and Mark, who live next door are very kind and helpful yet discrete and the best we have experienced. The bed is the most comfortable we have ever slept in away from home. There is a plug-in nightlight to help guide you down the spiral staircase at night if you need to use the facilities. We took a torch just in case, but didn't need it. Some tips which readers might find helpful: 1. The main source of heat is the woodburner. All the wood you could possibly need is provided in a dedicated shed in the private garden. Correctly controlled, the woodburner can remain ticking over for long periods eg, overnight, ready for you to bring it back to life in the morning. We only needed to re-light it once during our whole 7 night break. Full instructions are provided in the woodburner manual. Best overnight setting we found was to open the lower slide vent to approx 1 cm. 2. If taking your break during wet weather and you want to take a walk along the riverside or footpaths through the fields, wellies are a must. 3. Listing indicates shop within 1 mile. Nearest shop is about 2 miles. 4. The 'Devolo' WiFi is superb and we had no problems with EE network coverage. I think that's it - oh, don't forget to duck when entering the bathroom! Finally, very many thanks to Fiona and Mark for the use of their beautiful little cottage.

The property

A lovely and refreshing cottage, situated within the village of Hampton Bishop near to the graceful town of Hereford.

Attention to detail and traditional features bring character to this property, and the cosy atmosphere is perfect for couples to relax.

Entering this space, you will be welcomed by an open plan dining and sitting area, accompanied by signature walls and a charming woodburning stove.

Tucked into the corner, you will find a softly furnished kitchen, carrying an almost glistening effect, for a personal touch.

Through a narrow and enchanting doorway, a shower room awaits, with a classical white finish and low ceilings.

Moving up the spiralling staircase, there is a tasteful mezzanine area, showcasing a double bed, neutral colours and oak furniture.

The wooden beams, stone effect and decoration intertwine a country feel to the property for a soothing overtone.

Outside of the cottage, the theme is continued, with a black and white structure that echoes style from the offset.

Wander out into the cosy village of Hampton Bishop, or travel to the town of Hereford which hosts many historic buildings and attractions.

A precious cottage in a warming location.

About the location

HEREFORD

Leominster 14 miles.

The cathedral city of Hereford dates back to Saxon times, and with its medieval bridge over the winding River Wye it is the very image of picturesque England. With a mix of buildings from almost every British era, eclectic Hereford is a popular base for those seeking to explore the locale – being ideally placed for accessing the Black and White villages of the region, not to mention the delights of neighbouring Shropshire, Worcestershire and The Cotswolds. Famous as a cider producing town, Hereford is also the home of the Mappa Mundi, the largest and most elaborate pre-15th century map in existence, which resides in the cathedral alongside the famous Chained Library – a collection of over 1500 rare books from as early as the 8th century. Nearby is the half timbered town of Leominster, filled with medieval buildings, often overhanging the street, and also accessible is the natural splendour of Symonds Yat, a rocky outcrop on a 5 mile bend of the River Wye, with spectacular views and the opportunity to spot protected peregrine falcons flying from their nests.
