  • "Bungalow was extremely comfortable."

    It had everything we needed and felt really cozy. Would recomend Village pubs and chip shop. If you are venturing out in the evening take a torch as lane is very dark.

  • "Spotlessly clean, well equipped spacious cottage in a beautiful village."

    We are a family party of five adults and we found Hurst Green very comfortable with everything you could want for an enjoyable stay in the delightful village of Ewyas Harold. The beauty of the Golden Valley is stunning but without the crowds of many holiday UK destinations, a hidden gem. We were visiting family who live nearby and although it was November we were lucky with the weather and were treated to a backdrop of dazzling autumn scenery from the surrounding countryside as we walked on the common and drove to nearby towns. The village itself has two friendly and welcoming pubs serving food and local ales, a great chip shop, village store and post office, as well as two renowned award winning butchers selling quality local produce. We recommend Hurst Green and look forward to returning.

    Well placed in the village with a small shop (which stocks a good variety of fresh, tinned and frozen goods), a fish and chip shop and 2 pubs, which both serve food. Would highly recommend.

    It was perfect home-from-home along with friendly neighbours! I was able to recharge my car overnight at the house and this means that days out were worry-free about where I would be able to recharge. Excellent shops in the village for groceries and places to eat including the local fish and chips!

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Hurst Green."

    It was home from home. We spent a lot of time at the bungalow as the weather was really stifling for walking around. The garden was enclosed and private, so we could leave the doors and windows open. The neighbours very pleasant, and a five minute walk to two pubs across from each other, a post office/store and a fish and chip shop that sold ice cream - what more could you want?

  • "This property was almost perfect for us - a family of 6 adults attending a wedding locally."

    Bedrooms and the living room were very comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped and the table was a decent size for the 6 of us to eat at. We were lucky to have fantastic weather and were able to enjoy meals and relaxation in the pretty garden. The one thing which would make the property absolutely perfect would be to improve the linings on the curtains to provide some degree of blackout. Due to the fantastic weather we were woken early by sun streaming through the curtains, which are very lightly lined. We would definitely recommend this property, especially if the curtain linings could be improved.

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I will endeavour to get the curtains some lining and hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

    Really clean, comfy beds, and quiet. The Smart TV with Netflix and Amazon functionality was appreciated and Wifi was super fast for the whole family. The whole place felt roomy and the layout just worked. The village itself was pretty and perfect for us with a dog with lots of places to explore. We ventured up to the common and enjoyed the views. Hay on Wye was really picturesque and well worth a visit. Had a lovely meal at No.3 Restaurant in Ross on Wye and a great value, good quality carvery at the Fishermans Arms in Docklow too on the way down.

Wi-Fi worked fine and we had everything we needed for our week's stay. As everyone has said the fish and chips shop is fantastic. The village shop was surprisingly large and has pretty much everything you might need at very reasonable prices. Everyone we met was very friendly.

    We were a group that ranged from 79 years to 4 years of age and we couldn't have been more comfortable! House was very clean and comfortable and had everything you could need for a comfortable and easy stay. So many little extras that you don't get in many other properties! A perfect base to explore Hereford, Abergavenny and Hay On Wye - and those are just the three we managed to get to during our short stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a lovely break. The table tennis was fun too!

    Great dog safe enclosed garden. Kitchen great size and well equipped. Good bathroom and ensuite. The village is lovely with a few basic facilities including a nice pub,butchers, general store and great fish and chip shop. However we had a few issues with the beds. The king size upstairs was fine. Unfortunately the upstairs double was very uncomfortable and gave a guest severe back ache. On inspection the mattress was very worn with a collapsed section. The downstairs twin beds were quite low and gave little support. We actually left a day early as we couldn't face another sleepless night. Another issue was the lounge seating. With 6 guests there simply wasn't enough room. There was only a 2 seater settee plus a mismatched set of uncomfortable chairs. If these issues could be addressed we wouldn't hesitate to return.

    We were sorry to hear that you have had a problem with the beds at our property. We were not aware of the problem but have now rectified this by ordering new beds and mattresses. Many apologies. Property Owner

It is an excellent base for exploring with a number of historic towns within easy reach - Hereford, Abergavenny, Monmouth, Usk etc. There are some really good visitor attractions nearby, as exemplified by Big Pit and Blaenavon, we would also recommend the Rural Life Museum at Usk. More locally, the walk across the Ewyas Harold common to Dore Abbey offers views and wildlife. We spent a day exploring Llanthony Priory and the walks local to there. The house itself, Hurst Green, is amongst the cleanest, best equipped and simply nicest amongst our stays, we have not chosen to stay anywhere else four times.

    Don’t ask for reviews then select which bits to keep and which bits to reject in case it reflects badly on Sykes. We average 6 Sykes holidays per year (that’s a lot!!). I have never left a negative review. I have left honest reviews and pointed out areas of concern. If I’ve been disappointed I’ve said so. These reviews are to ensure other customers select the right holiday for them and their pets. On the whole our Sykes holidays have been excellent. Would I book this accommodation again? YES.

    With very comfy beds, three toilets, and two bathrooms also extremely convenient. The table tennis table in the garage was the source of much hilarity amongst four senior citizens, I imagine great fun for younger guests with more energy. All round an excellent cottage for a comfortable holiday , especially when it rains for extended periods nearly every day. The roads around Ewyas Harold are very narrow so nervous drivers might be put off travelling to the small villages nearby, but we had no problem being used to using passing places in Cornwall and Yorkshire, just watch out for 'fords' , if it does rain heavily, many turn into small lakes! Just a tip, do your research before you go, as there are many interesting places to see and visit, especially the Forest Of Dean, however, cross the Wye at Goodrich and not Monmouth as English signage is easier to read at speed than Welsh! We would recommend Hurst Green happily to anyone who wishes a home from home.

The property

A charming detached cottage just a short walk from the amenities of the village of Ewyas Harold, surrounded by the beautiful Herefordshire countryside of the Golden Valley, close to the Welsh border.

Thoughtfully furnished throughout, this superb cottage provides an ideal holiday home for a small group or family to get away from it all and enjoy the many delights of the area.

Set over two floors, the ground floor is comprised of a delightful sitting room with doors leading to the rear garden, a spacious kitchen/diner with separate utility and a twin bedroom with en-suite facilities.

Up on the first floor you'll find one lovely king-size double bedroom, one double bedroom and a main bathroom, and outside, the rear lawned cottage garden makes a great place to relax with a refreshing drink on a summer's evening.

The ancient village of Ewyas Harold has two pubs, an award-winning fish and chip shop, a well-stocked store and a Post Office.

Within driving distance are Abergavenny, Hereford and Hay-on-Wye.

All three offer something different to guests, with Abergavenny boasting a castle with its own museum, shops, pubs and restaurants, Hay-on-Wye with its number of book shops and the city of Hereford boasting a stunning cathedral and many amenities to suit all tastes.

The area offers numerous walks and cycle trails, especially in the nearby Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons) and the Black Mountains.

A wonderful cottage, ideal for a break whatever the time of year.
