  • "A cosy, comfortable and well equipped cottage."

    It is situated in a very rural spot, reached by quiet single track roads - ideal for those who want to 'get away from it all'. There are plenty of places of interest to visit which are not too far away - eg. Hereford, Ludlow, Hay-on-Wye, and plenty of books and DVDs in the cottage for evenings and wet days!

    Our very first Sykes review so thank you,Celia. It makes us really happy to know you enjoyed your stay in our cottage. Property Owner

The property

Leominster 3.4 miles.

Enjoying a rural outlook in the Herefordshire village of Aulden near Leominster is Archers Cottage, a delightful, one-bedroom dwelling.

Offering a homely feel throughout, whilst offering a countryside escape set between Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Shropshire Hills AONB, Archers Cottage is a fabulous base for a couple, looking to retreat from the hustle and bustle.

Park up off-road before making your way indoors, firstly arriving in the well-equipped kitchen, with all the appliances to ease your self-catered stay.

Prepare a romantic meal and set the dining table, gathering as the wine is poured and conversations flow.

Watch the sun set from the private garden, before cosying up in front of the Smart TV for a film night.

Climb the stairs to catch some rest in the sumptuous king-size bed, before completing your morning routine in the sleek shower room.

If you can tear yourself away, head into Leominster where you can dine out, stock up on the essentials at the supermarkets and tour the Leominster Museum and Leominster Priory, before heading to Drapers Lane Deli for a coffee and pastries.

Spend the day in Hereford, brimming with culture and history, where you can tour Hereford Cathedral, sample some delicious produce at the Museum of Cider, discover the Black and White House Museum, and visit the Waterworks Museum upon River Wye.

Ludlow is well worth a visit, with its magnificent castle to explore, great independent shops, a weekly farmers market, restaurants and the Harp Lane Deli where you can enjoy brunch.

Hay on Wye is nearby and where you can enjoy a good walk across Hay Bluff to blow away the cobwebs followed by a browse in one of the many bookshops is a great way to spend an afternoon.

Hereford is about 13 miles away and has a 1200 year old cathedral in the city centre that houses the Mappa Mundi and Chain Library, whilst the Sensort & Rye do fabulous coffee and a varied menu or choose the Ye Old Salutation Inn for traditional pub grub.

Further afield are the National Trust properties of Berrington Hall and Croft Castle, offering a great afternoon of exploration.
