  • "Lovely warm welcome, cottage very clean and well presented."

    No quibbles there. We did cook in the cottage on the first night and breakfast that was a little frustrating, the hob didnt allow you to use all the rings at the same time so cooking took a little time and there were no large slotted spoons to serve out of the pans. There are two good pubs within walking distance so maybe just eat out . As there were no other issues we would definitely recommend to our friends. P.s. the dog loved it too, garden lovely and safe and good dog walks.

  • "Lovely cottage and good base for exploring the River Wye and surrounding area."

    River just down Ferry Lane opposite the cottage with a lovely walk across fields and on the banks of the river. Jane was most helpful and supplied a welcome bottle of milk and box of chocs. She was there to meet us on arrival and to say goodbye. Hereford close by for any shopping needs. Two excellent pubs within a short walking distance. An excellent stay. Thank you.

  • "A charming, comfortable and homely cottage."

    An excellent base in a lovely village with good amenities. The owner Jane was very friendly and welcoming on arrival and was always available to answer any queries. We would certainly stay here again.

  • "We (3 adults) found the property well-appointed, in a lovely village which boasted two inns, a Post Office/general store, farm butchers and a fantastic gift shop cum cafe."

    The cottage had been beautifully renovated and suited us well. The beds and bedding were of a good standard (SO important). The owner took the time to greet us on arrival, a nice touch. There is perhaps the need for a couple of folders holding manuals for equipment (cooker snd TV) and local tourist attractions, otherwise it was perfect.

  • "We had a wonderful 3 night stay in this beautiful cottage."

    Very comfortable and cosy, fantastically renovated and extremely well equipped. Great location for local walks, the walk down to the river is particularly nice and all local pubs are dog friendly. Visited Hereford centre and Ross on Wye both lovely. Thank you.

The property

Tucked away in the centre of Fownhope in Herefordshire, is this fantastic two-bedroom end-of-terrace cottage, 1 Tump Cottages.

Enjoying a stunning location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a private enclosed garden, 1 Tump Cottages is a wonderful dwelling for two couples or a family of four plus their canine companion to get away from it all.

Park-up in one of two off-road parking spaces, before entering through the private rear garden, where you can look forward to sipping your morning coffee or enjoying evening drinks at the outdoor table.

Upon entering, you will find a handy utility/cloakroom, ideal for keeping your holiday wardrobe fresh.

Be welcomed into the spacious kitchen/dining room, where you can pop on your chefs’ hat and conjure up culinary delights with the help of the electric oven and hob, fridge and microwave.

Settle down at the pine dining table for four, as you tuck-in to a tasty meal and discuss plans for the days ahead, all whilst enjoying the warmth of the double-sided woodburning stove which translates into the sitting room.

After a satisfying meal, relax on the three seater sofa or one of the armchairs in front of your favourite film on the Smart TV, as your furry friend curls up in front of the crackling woodburning stove.

As your eyes grow heavy, climb the stairs to the first-floor where you can wash away the day in the walk-in shower, before catching your rest in one of two tastefully decorated rooms, a super king-size with zip/link and a double.

Benefit from 1 Tump Cottages' central location with a stroll into the village, which offers a butchers and village shop/Post Office, for picking up any ingredients to replicate your favourite meal of the holiday and two excellent pubs where you can treat your guests to the local cuisine and spend some time out of the kitchen.

Don't forget to pop into The Coo Corner which is a beautiful, unique shop home to locally designed handmade gifts and products.

Perched along the River Wye, you can embark on scenic walks or cycles, including The Wye Valley Walk, a 136-mile walk which offers stunning scenery and follows the border between England and Wales, as well as Three Choirs Way!

If you time your visit right, you will have the monthly farmers market to look forward to, where you can peruse the stalls which offer locally produced goods.

Close by is the ancient market town of Ledbury, full of historic charm and independent shops or why not visit the pretty town of Malvern, and the dramatic Malvern Hills!

Those looking to sample a piece of history should venture to Capler Hill, home to an Iron Age Hill Fort, along with beautiful countryside views.

Next stop is Hereford, well-known for its impressive 11th-century cathedral and Mappa Mundi world map, as well as its Black and White House Museum housed in a 17th-century timber framed building.

Promising a relaxing break in Herefordshire, secure your stay at 1 Tump Cottages.
