  • "A lovely cosy cottage."

    Great layout, the ‘boot room’ was ideal for keeping muddy shores and dogs in. Plenty of space for the four of us. Very comfortable beds and very clean. Great to have an enclosed garden that our two dogs could run around in. We enjoyed our stay immensely, loved seeing the lambs and other residents. Would love to come back in the summer when its dryer.

  • "Lovely cottages and friendly hosts."

    Sadly the weather meant that we did not spend any time with animals but hopefully they will all survive this rather wet spring! Thanks again for the kind welcome pack and the eggs which were vey much appreciated.

  • "A welcome basket and milk and tea/coffee/sugar waiting."

    It is a working farm. Great base to travel around. It was raining when we stayed but always came back to a warm cottage. Facilities in the property great. Made to feel very welcome. Maybe need a handrail on both set of the steps outside( we were both having own mobility problems).

  • "The property was perfect."

    Very clean and comfortable. It was warm and there are some great views. The driveway might prove tricky for some, but we were ok with it, as we had a 4 x 4. We appreciated the assistance given with regard to the parking of our trailer. It is clearly a great place for dogs, and it was lovely to meet the owners own dogs. Overall a very positive experience.

  • "This is a great property and perfect for relaxing and being in the middle of no where yet still being close enough to towns to go and explore."

    The property is spacious and it’s a great benefit of having two bedrooms both with en-suites. Whilst we couldn’t make much use of the garden and patio it’s a great space and something which I would imagine is great for lighter/sunnier nights. The owners were lovely and very friendly.

  • "The Cider House was beautiful with lots of character."

    It was comfortable and provided everything we could have needed . We had a welcome pack of fresh eggs bacon sausage and biscuits plus milk tea coffee and sugar. The beds were comfortable and both had great en suite bathrooms. There were hens and ducks who enjoyed the peas we fed them and two very friendly dogs. The garden was enclosed and safe for those with dogs or young children to consider. The only very small criticism would be the drive way as it is bumpy and would probably benefit from new gravel to even it out. Having said that it is a farm so to be expected. Dominic and Trudie were friendly and available but not intrusive. We would definitely recommend The Cider House without hesitation. We will be back I'm sure

  • "We arrived at The Cider House after a long drive and was pleasantly surprised with the location of the property and the well stocked house which had everything for your basic needs."

    The welcome breakfast basket was very appreciated and filled with the farms local produce. A really warm and welcoming touch by our hosts who greeted us as we parked up as well as their two beautiful 10 month old collies. Alas our 8 yr old husky was not up for playing with them and preferred to laze away in the perfectly lawned and enclosed gardens. Once Trudie and Dominique had informed us of the farms workings and the nearby walks we were then left to enjoy our holiday but always on hand if anything was needed. As the weather for the week was very hot it was a relief to discover that the house kept relatively cool inside. It was nice to enjoy alfresco dining on the patio area as well. This is a working farm with sheep, stabled horses and farm machinery but noise levels were kept to a minimum and although a building extension was going on, again, the owners were very mindful of keeping noise to a minimum. The super king size bed was extremely comfortable and we slept really well all throughout our stay. The location was a good base to visit surrounding areas near and afar. We visited Tewksbury Abbey, shopped at Hereford with its majestic Cathedral and enjoyed the long walks around Symmonds Yat and Croft Castle Parklands. Broadway and Bourton on the Water are our favourite haunts for cream teas and gift shopping. We certainly recommend Cider House and are looking to return next year. A big thank you to Trudie and Dominique who couldn’t do enough to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. We wish them all the best in what seems to be a relatively new venture.

The cottage was very well equipped, comfortable and warm. There was a list of local pubs, information about the farm and that the ducks like peas so we had to buy some to feed them and the owners were on hand to help out with anything we needed. Very relaxing stay in a beautiful location. We walked around the farm following footpaths, visited Berrington Hall and Croft Castle and ate at The Fountain in Tenbury Wells.
