  • "We had a lovely stay at Hill Farm."

    The property was clean, well presented and in an idyllic setting. Sadly the weather wasn’t the best (although it could have been worse) and was sad to see the farm and surrounding area saturated after the excess rainfall we have all been experiencing. The cottage is set in a quiet area close to the main farm house. There was no sign of active farming activity so can only presume that the farm operations are somewhere else. We certainly weren’t disturbed at any point during our stay and would consider staying again, if we were in the area again

    A quiet farm cottage located on a working farm in the quiet hills and valleys of Herefordshire with some pretty good views. The cottage was immaculate on arrival and was very well equipped and comfortable. Ian the host and his family were most helpful and even moved their two rams from the orchard so that our Labrador could have more space to run around in.

  • "The upside ; lovely hot water and lots of it, central heating very efficient, with glorious views all round, comfy beds with good bedding."

    Downside ; the whole cottage needed a thorough clean. To begin with, the entrance needed a good brush to get rid of leaves and cobwebs which were all over the door frame and the tiles, this was a shame as a pleasant entrance would have made quite a difference. When we arrived we had to vacuum the lounge carpet as it obviously had not been cleaned from the last visitors. Then brushing down the walls to get rid of masses of cobwebs, these were also on the curtains, curtain poles and every nook and cranny. The cobwebs on the beams were amazing and we managed to remove quite a few. The hearth was then swept and the glass on the log burner cleaned so we could see the fire ! On looking behind the books on the window sills, we found thick cobwebs, dead flies and numerous spider corpses. The fabric covered settee was dirty and on lifting the seat cushions found food bits, dog hairs and sweet papers. We then cleaned the glass of the patio doors as they were covered in dog slobber, as was the glass on the back door. Now we get to the kitchen ! One revolting oven and baking pans that were disgusting and should have been thrown out months ago. The crockery was a mishmash of sorts and much of it was chipped. The glasses were pristine. The bathroom was fine, except for the shower hose which again was mould ? it was quite off putting. I have taken photographs of all the things mentioned and can send if you desire. It was such a shame about the lack of cleanliness, I know it is out in the country and they accept dogs , but that amount of cobwebs dead flies, spiders and dog hairs was not acceptable. It did not spoil our holiday , but it would have been absolutely A1 had these things been addressed in the first place. We were, to say the least , disappointed. Barbara Turner

About the location


Hereford 12 miles; Abergavenny 15 miles; Hay-on-Wye 15 miles.

The pretty village of Abbey Dore is situated on the River Dore, at the southern end of the beautiful Golden Valley, close to the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains. The village is home to the old established Abbey Dore Court Gardens, open to the public between April and September, Dore Abbey, founded in 1147 by Cistercian monks and restored to its present form in the 18th and 19th Century. Just 12 miles away is the ancient city of Hereford, which dates back to the 7th Century and is home to a magnificent cathedral, the famous 'chained library', Mappa Mundi and a medieval bridge over the winding River Wye. The wonderful market town of Hay-on-Wye, famous for its 30-plus book shops, excellent pubs, restaurants and antique shops, making it one of the most visited tourist attractions in Wales, is only 15 miles from Abbey Dore. Surrounded by pleasant orchards and cornfields, the village is also close to the Offa's Dyke and Wye Valley walks - a wonderful all year round location with plenty to see and do for all the family.
