  • "We were impressed with the property which was clean, warm and cosy."

    The welcome basket of wine, fresh eggs (delicious scrambled), milk and the flowers was a lovely touch. Unfortunately, my wife was ill for most of our stay but felt safe and relaxed in the Hayloft while I was out walking in the gentle, pleasant surrounding countryside. It was also a handy location for reaching Hereford and Malvern (under 30 minutes to each town) with Hay-on-Wye a little further but a lovely drive. Everyone in Much Cowarne was very friendly and helpful, genuinely concerned about my wife and giving us details of the doctors nearby, who were very helpful. Our only complaint was that the bed, though wonderfully large, was a little on the hard side for us. Oh and it would be helpful to have a sign ( with the name of the house) at the end of the drive on the main road in.

    It is beautifully furnished and provided everything we needed for a relaxing break. It is situated in the beautiful garden of the owners' home and provided a tranquil haven for us to return to after our days out. We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness and the COVID precautions, which meant that we instantly felt at ease on arrival. We would highly recommend and would love to return.

    ... I would have much preferred two small chairs instead of a setter ....I sat on my deck chair all week which I took in with me every day.... Just my preferance. Otherwise is was truly perfect.....

  • "This is a wonderful little cottage."

    It is so cosy - but in the true sense of the word as the rooms are actually quite spacious. The owners have paid a great deal of attention to the finish and facilities. There is a well stocked kitchen, fantastic water pressure, Netflix, Wi-fi and plenty of storage as well as many, conveniently located electrical sockets - perfect for charging phones and other devices as well as being able to plug in a hair dryer near a mirror - a rare thing in holiday properties! This is the first holiday we've taken since Covid-19 lock down restrictions were lifted and we had some concerns about travelling but the care taken in the cleanliness of this cottage was faultless and we immediately felt as ease. We had a comfortable and relaxing break in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you.

  • "The Hayloft is a beautifully tranquil, well equipt, clean and welcoming place to stay."

    It's away from the main hubbub of the madness thats 2020 and provided a lovley place to relax and explore the British countryside. The rooms were large, had everything you needed (Oven, fridge (small freezer compartment), dishwasher, Large internet enabled TV, very comfy bed, big bath, strong shower with lots of hot water, warm and most importantly at the moment clean and "safe") . We arrived to find a lovley welcome basket of wine, milk and some of the owners apples and fresh eggs (from the free roaming hens) which was much appreciated. It's a bit of hike to get anywhere but Hereford is well worth a visit and theres plenty of walks around Malvern and Bromyard. We didnt eat at any local pubs/restuarants but theres plent of cafes/farm shops to hand when your thirsty/hungry. I'd definatly recommend The Hayloft and would certainly go back

  • "The Hayloft was a very comfortable and well-equipped holiday cottage and we had an excellent few days there despite one very wet day."

    The accommodation was very well designed so the living and bedroom areas were spacious and restful and the bathroom had excellent facilities. The cottage is in a very rural location so phone signal is poor and in the end we needed to resort to Skype for some calls. We struggled a bit to find somewhere to eat out but our perseverance was well rewarded. It's lovely to be able to walk from the cottage without needing to take the car although some local footpaths aren't signpost or marked on the ground. We had both ordnance survey hard copy map and phone app so were able to get where we intended and the local farmers were very helpful!
