  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    The barn is lovely, good facilities and beautiful garden. The owners were really helpful. I would recommend putting waste paper bins in the bedrooms and lounge and tooth mugs in the bathrooms. We struggled with the chairs in the lounge - we both need chairs with good support - there were two separate chairs but unfortunately neither of us found these suited us either. The beds were great, very comfortable and a good size with lovely crisp cotton bedding. We were welcomed warmly, the home is in a beautiful location. The kitchen was well equipped: great cooker, good knives but could have done with a knife sharpener. We understand that the area in general is struggling with the Wifi - and that was our experience too - but was ok for our needs. We would go again if visiting that area.

  • "Exceptional property."

    Very comfortable, all mod-cons and the most beautiful garden. We had an incredibly restful few days in this tranquil haven. Thoroughly recommend this property- we will definitely be returning. Thank you.

  • "Highly recommended."

    A very comfortable and well equipped property in a lovely setting. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We felt that the property would benefit from a direction sign from the main road as the turning could be missed by first time visitors. Apparently this has been raised by the owner in discussion with the Highways Department without success.

    Lovely accommodation, well equipped, comfortable, clean and quiet.

  • "We all had a thoroughly enjoyable & comfortable stay."

    We thought The Barn had a lived in & relaxed feel, the ladies especially enjoyed the blankets & using the logburner. Our only small improvements would be better signage & lighting outside. In the visitors book (we are all Herefordian born & bred) we thought your description of Hereford did a great misjustice to our historic, creative & interesting Market Town. Many Thanks Zoe Newey

  • "A lovely cottage, perfect for 6 of us."

    Very cosy and clean. All the home comforts you could need in a beautiful countryside setting.

  • "A lovely property, very clean, tidy and comfortable in a very picturesque part of the country."

    My only comment would be that in order to access the main bedroom with the ensuite you need to walk through the twin room, which isn't ideal as you could disturb whoever sleeps in that room. Otherwise a great property.

  • "Should perhaps state in the details that the garden is not enclosed with the property and may therefore be difficult if you have a dog or young children."

    We had a couple of problems which were dealt with promptly and efficiently by the owners. Beautiful property in very well attended gardens.

    Thank you for your feedback. We do tend to avoid listing things that aren't available as this can sometimes cause confusion if people misread a description but will always list if a garden is enclosed. The owner was happy to address the issue with the bulb and the kettle but is pleased you had an enjoyable stay and appreciated the beautiful grounds. Property Owner

    The Old Barn was very well equipped, clean, tastefully furnished, and comfortable. The garden was beautiful and calming, and we used the supplied bbq. Would highly recommend this property, and would definitely stay here again.

  • "Worked very well renting both cottages for family of 10."

    Owners cleared field of sheep so grandsons could play ball games. Lovely cottage. The beautiful gardens are behind both cottages so we could all sit outside together.

  • "The location, the comfortable accommodation, the excellent garden and the friendly welcome."

    As an aside, you should try to be more discriminating in your marketing efforts. I do not want a constant string of unsolicited emails to my work account. One per quarter would be fine, but when they come every week I apply the junk filter.

  • "It would have been lovely to meet with the owners who live in the complex."

    A welcome from them would have been appreciated. One down side. The fridge ( we had bought food to eat a meal in every day) and this is a 3 bedroomed cottage to sleep 6 people, was inadequate. A larder fridge would be much better.

  • "We had a lovely short break at The Old Barn."

    It's a delightful property in idyllic, peaceful countryside, and manages to be both spacious and cosy. The Christmas tree was also an unexpected surprise. We enjoyed a fantastic bike ride around the surrounding black/white housed villages, stopping in Pembridge for lunch.

  • "There were a couple of points which conflicted with what we were told by the owner."

    The TV channel changer had not been covered in clingfilm as per Covid guidelines and the sitting room had not been properly swept with a small amount of ash from the wood burning stove under the loose carpet. The wood burning stove had not been cleaned properly with the tray still full of ash from the previous clients. These are small points but given the emphasis on cleanliness with Covid around I felt it should have been better. The overall presentation and comfort was good standard and having been to this property a number of times it felt there had been a slight drop in standards given the hyper sensitivity of the guidelines around Covid.The table mats were also rather old and worn looking and should be replaced. This is a lovely property in a beautiful setting. Despite the minor suggestions above we would return to this property.

  • "Central situation to major points of interest in the area - Hereford, Brecon Beacons, Kington."

    Some beautiful walks nearby. It would be useful to sign the cottage from the A4111. We had to ask in the village and the farm was not well known. Either that or a clearer description in the information. It's basically the second left leaving the village northwards with a no through road sign at its entrance, 2.7km outside the village. It would be very helpful.

  • "An excellent place to stay with plenty of space!"

    Really easy to get to with towns to visit nearby. The owner was lovely and the cottage has all the amenities you could need including extras like games/books/logs for the fire. Only issue we had was that the hot water is only on at certain hours in the winter but was stated clearly in the handbook, so would recommend reading it thoroughly on arrival. The signal was quite poor but is to be expected in a rural area. Would definitely book to stay again!

  • "I can not fault the property, it was perfect except it was in a very poor mobile phone service and internet area and we should have been warned of this as there was no access to a landline in case of Emergences."

    It was advertised as free WiFi but the signal was too weak.

Little Quebb Cottages

A pair of traditional cottages resting within the charming courtyard of a 15th century listed black and white farmhouse, close to the medieval village of Eardisley. Tucked away within a farmyard setting where the owners breed Ryeland sheep. Both cottages offer a traditional interior with exposed beams, woodburning fires and charming furnishings to complement, ensuring a memorable stay for a friends and family gathering to Herefordshire. To the outside of the properties you will find a rear garden area, where you can gather to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining or rustle up some summer treats on the BBQ. If you can tear yourselves away from this outstanding base, the surrounding area offers superb outdoor opportunities which include canoeing on the River Wye, golfing and walking along the Offa's Dyke path. If you are seeking something more leisurely, venture to the market town of Hay-on-Wye or the impressive Hampton Court Castle. Little Quebb Cottages promise a refreshing getaway to an area steeped with things to do.

The delightful medieval village of Eardisley, located between Kington and Hay-on-Wye, is part of Herefordshire's famous Black & White Village Trail. It boasts many early 16th century black and white cottages, a 12th century Norman church with a unique font, two pubs and village shop. The whole area is renowned for its beautiful countryside, which provides excellent walking, cycling, bird watching, fishing and canoeing in the nearby River Wye. The small town of Kington is only 5 miles away, with a number of good shops, pubs, restaurants and a variety of tourist attractions close by, including Eastnor Castle, Hergest Croft Gardens, the Offa's Dyke Path, the Mortimer Trail and the lovely walk to Hergest Ridge, the inspiration for the music of both Elgar and Mike Oldfield. Also within easy reach is the delightful town of Hay-on-Wye, with its numerous book shops, craft shops and antique shops, and the ancient city of Hereford with its impressive Norman cathedral and famous Mappa Mundi, a 13th Century cartographer's interpretation of the world. A truly delightful holiday location!
