  • "The house was excellent very cosy and very tastefully decorated."

    it had all that we needed. it was so lovely to find some flowers and biscuits on the table and milk in the fridge. Garden view very nice. I could quite easily have lived there and made it my home! I am taking the colour idea in the bathroom for mine that am updating and so too colour in kitchen for my bedroom! Certainly recommend to others to go. I also felt it was good value for money given the quality of the house furnishings etc,

  • "What a lovely holiday cottage this is , one of the best Sykes cottages we have stayed in ."

    The decor and furnishings were of the very highest standard and the rooms were spotlessly clean . We immediately felt at home and had an enjoyable week relaxing in the cottage and exploring the Herefordshire countryside. In particular we enjoyed our visits to Ledbury and the beautiful village of Weobley .
