  • "Rock Cottage stands in a beautiful and rather remote area."

    There are plenty of walks directly from the door which really suited us. The cottage had comfortable beds and spotless linen. There was a large dog friendly garden, however there was a wide gap between the house and the barn, giving dogs access to the very quiet road. We resolved this by plugging it with the bins, but not before our Golden retriever had made a visit to the neighbours! We had wonderful weather and watched owls, red kites and bats from the garden. Neighbours and locals were lovely and friendly.

    Thank you - we are delighted you enjoyed your stay ! We will look to resolve the gap in fence! Property Owner

  • "Rock cottage was just perfect."

    Peaceful and tranquil, in the most beautiful setting. Everything was as described. The owners and neighbours could not do enough for us. Ideally based for walking and visiting, so many beautiful places of interest. Or just sit in the sun room,relax and take in the views. It was warm and comfortable. Thank you so much. Would definitely recommend and return.

    It was great to meet you both. Thank you, we are delighted you enjoyed your time at Rock Cottage. You are always welcome! Hope we see you again ! Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage which is totally secluded and very peaceful but also not that far from local town."

    Nice and snug with log burner going but the cottage does have its quirks, 4G signal can be a bit hit & miss + had at least 3 nights when TV signal was very poor and unable to watch a lot of channels on TV. Also compared to other properties visited over the years did find the information provided about the local area & amenities a little lacking.

    Thank you Gary - we really appreciate you taking time to give feedback. In the Welsh dresser there are two folders full of suggestions for things to do / places to go ( as stated in welcome book.) Please let us know what kind of information you would like to see incorporated in future. We hope to see you again ! Property Owner

  • "The bath drain was partially blocked, saucepan lids did not match saucepans, grill pan wasn't clean."

    Switches for working boilers, lights in conservatory confusing, etc. Didn't have the key code, had to get hold of owner, waiting 20 minutes for response, before we could enter the cottage, an email with details was received 2 days later from the owner. Otherwise a lovely spot in the country.

    Thank you so much for sharing your feedback which is valuable to us for future . We only had positive feedback to date & always do our best to respond & support as quickly as possible. Glad you liked the location. Property Owner

  • "Tranquil, peaceful and quiet."

    Charming cottage to unwind and breathe in the air. Only thing you hear is the wind in the trees, the twitter of birds and the occasional bleating of sheep. Walk with the dog right from the front door, or visit dog friendly cafes in Leominster, take in a couple of national trust properties nearby. Or just relax in a cottage that we’d definitely book again.

    Thank you Mark - we are so glad you experienced the magic of our rural hideaway! Hope to see you again! Warm regards Victoria and Beth Property Owner

  • "Lovely quaint cottage in beautiful quiet countryside, ideal for restful days with a book and a glass of wine."

    Great for nature lovers, lots of birds spotted including a pair of green woodpeckers, local paths bit overgrown but passable for dog walking. Close enough to places of interest for day visits, National Trust properties nearby, recommend Pensons Restaurant nearby but do book in advance.

    Thank you Trevor ! We are so delighted you enjoyed your time at Rock Cottage and experienced its magic. Hope to see you again ! Property Owner

  • "The holiday cottage was beautiful, miles away from anywhere with stunning views, however you would need a car to get there as the nearest shop is miles away."

    But would never book with sykes again. Awful company to book through. We moved to Rock cottage and had to extra for the privilege after booking the school room in Hereford, through skykes, on the listing it had no information about the place having building work done or scaffolding, it was unclean, spent most of Saturday on the phone to get moved, we had no choice but to pay extra or come home, with two kids this wasn't an option, and no Apologie or compensation. Awful company steer clear, book with someone else.

    Thomas - we are glad you enjoyed the cottage - sorry to hear Sykes didn’t work for you- unfortunately your rating is impacting the cottage rating and I am sensing it’s more about Sykes than the cottage- is that right? Property Owner

This is a cottage for all seasons, with views of lambs & blossom in the next door orchard in spring, hazy sunny rolling green fields & trees in summer, before harvest and ploughing of red soil & autumn leaves by October.

After parking up, take the weight off your feet in the homely sitting area, complete with woodburning stove where you and your loved ones can curl up on cooler evenings and delight in some light entertainment on the TV; allow the designated chef of the group to get to grips with a suitable range of appliances in the kitchen, sure to ease your self-catered stay, before settling down at the dining table.

If you prefer to bask in your surroundings a little longer, venture out into the enclosed garden to saviour an alfresco affair in amongst your tranquil surroundings, planning your itinerary for the days ahead until the stars appear.

When sleep calls, freshen up with a long soak or warm shower in the ground-floor bathroom before retreating to either a super-king-size or twin bedroom to rest your head.

When you fancy eating out, head to the Michelin starred restaurant Pensons, just a short drive away.

In the morning, head to the market town of Leominster, where you can tour Leominster Museum, take a stroll along the River Lugg or indulge dinner and drinks at one of several fantastic pubs and restaurants on the days you don’t feel like cooking!

Close by, admire the historic National Trust sites of Berrington Hall and Croft Castle and Parkland or head to Tenbury Wells where you’ll find your nearest conveniences, in addition to the historic Round Market, a charming array of Georgian buildings and medieval bridge crossing the River Teme.
