  • "Great stay at the Old Stables."

    Nice location. We used it as a base for fishing the River Wye which is just a short drive away. If you’re looking to explore the area this is a great location just 5 minutes from Ross-on-Wye.

  • "Lovely warm comfortable cottage, beautiful garden overlooking a fishing lake full of bird life."

    Large fully fenced garden. The cottage is within 14 miles of superb dog walking areas all with cafes Minor points, some microwave dishes and a measuring jug would be useful.

    The noise from the motorway was constant,the garden was huge but very uneven,needs more bowels to use in microwave,sitting room even though it has big windows is dark had to have lights on,the walls didnt reach top of ceiling in any room so could hear everything if television was on or even talking,for the price we paid we are very disappointed

    The grounds and accommodation is a perfect fit for anyone with a dog and teenage kids. The location is amazing and walks in every direction. 30 minutes to many visitor places and attractions and cannot recommend this place enough.

  • "We had a great week staying here."

    There was a huge garden area for the dogs to run around and where we could sit and admire the stunning views of the lake and surrounding countryside. Only a short drive to Ross-on-Wye for any shopping and it's a lovely place to walk around. Many other places of interest to visit in the area. There is everything one needs for a lovely stay at The Old Stables and the owners were a friendly and helpful couple who went the extra mile to make our stay as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

  • "We had a perfect holiday at the Old Stables."

    It was ideal for our 5 month old English Setter, Dexter! There are plenty of walks nearby without using the car! It’s an ideal spot to explore some lovely places like Ross on Wye & Ledbury. The food & welcome at the village pub (The Moody Cow) were excellent, they are extremely dog friendly & there were even dog treats on the table! It was a lovely relaxing holiday. We will definitely be back

  • "After many holidays in the passed this was the one we felt completely relaxed from the first moment we entered the property."

    Our two dogs (Rotties) had a blast and were free to roam the grounds without worries of escaping and causing mayhem! We will return and just wish we knew of the property before. The owner was friendly and helpful.

  • "The cottage was perfect had a fantastic holiday with the grandkids, managed easily with the layout even with our granddaughter being in a wheelchair."

    Only issue was we contacted Sykes prior to our stay to ask if there was a DVD player at cottage one was not listed but I asked them to ask the owner. They came back to me and said no dvd player so we took one, yet when we got to the cottage there was one, the owner said he had not been contacted to ask.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Lovely cottage which was exceptionally well laid out with beautiful views over the garden and lake. Great place for dogs as the large front garden area down to the lake was fenced off. Owner was very nice and only came over when we arrived and left. The only real downside was the lack of wi-fi which we really missed. We could only occasionally get our own network signal when standing outside the cottage and that was intermittent. Also a local information book with doctor, dentist, bus stops, waste recycling and other general info would be useful. Overall though we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

  • "Wonderful cottage, location and owners."

    It was well appointed and the cleanliness was excellent. Personally for a perfect stay I would have preferred the cottage to have a wifi connection, especially as mobile phone coverage is very poor on some networks. Although grumbles aside I would definitely rebook and return as we loved everything else. Thanks.

  • "Had a lovely week at the Stables."

    The accommodation was excellent, location very peaceful with nice views and the walks round the lakes enjoyable. The grounds were well secure even for my two escape artists, with no worry of allowing them to roam freely. Herefordshire is a pleasant area to visit, many attractions with easy reach to cities and towns worth visiting. Rob the host was very pleasant and helpful. Would certainly recommend to anyone to book the Stables

  • "Charming get away - lovely views across small lake."

    Facilities good and spotless when we arrived. Comfortable and lots of space for our party of three. Convenient base for Gloucester/Worcester/Hereford triangle and the beautiful black and white timbered buildings for which this area is famous. We also fitted in some retail therapy at Gloucester Quays. Slight road noise when windows open but not an issue for town dwellers like us.

About the location


Ross-on-Wye 3 miles.

The thriving village of Upton Bishop lies in beautiful Herefordshire countryside close to the border with Gloucestershire and has an excellent village pub, craft centre and is just 3 miles from the pretty riverside town of Ross-on-Wye. Upton Bishop offers many lovely walks and cycle routes with the Herefordshire Trail and Wye Valley Walk both close by. Nearby Gorsley offers a well-stocked village shop with Post Office and off licence, along with a popular free house pub with restaurant that's renowned for its Nepalese cuisine both in the county and beyond. Newent, one of the most attractive market towns in the Vale of Leadon and formerly a Roman settlement, has a wide range of attractions, including the half-timbered Old Market Hall dating back to 1668, traditional inns, restaurants, tea rooms and individual shops. Overlooking a large loop in the beautiful River Wye is the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, situated in the picturesque Wye Valley. This attractive town has timbered Tudor houses clustered around the striking 17th century Market Hall, and there are excellent shops, pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. Stroll along the lovely river bank, take a river cruise or view the surrounding countryside from a hot-air balloon. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean boasts many trails which can be enjoyed on foot, bicycle or horseback or why not try your hand at fishing, golf, kayaking or caving all of which can be enjoyed in the area. Try the local wine at the Three Choirs Vineyard or visit the waterfront city of Gloucester with its Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and Norman Cathedral. The stunning Brecon Beacon National Park, Cheltenham, Ledbury and the unspoilt Cotswold villages and towns and the beautiful Malvern Hills also make a great day out.
