  • "A lovely sympathetic restoration of a characterful cottage."

    Lacking a few niceties that we have come to expect. Eg. a pint of milk in the fridge. The dishcloth was unwashed, one toilet roll between two toilets. Watered down washing up liquid which lasted only two days and only a couple of dishwasher tablets. We were requested to take the recycling bin a fair way up the road for collection(which we did) but others obviously hadn't. This would be a problem for anyone without the strength or stamina! There are low doorways and uneven floors, which we were warned about, but tall husband was a bit fed up with after a week, I at 5'3" bashed my head once on the 4'6" bathroom doorway! Not suitable for young children as the upstairs windows are low and have no safety features. Radiator in bathroom still not fixed after other peoe had commented in the guest book. Maybe end of season issues. Otherwise, if you come prepared for the above, it is idyllic.

  • "I have been very disappointed in the way Sykes Cottages and particularly the owner of the property dealt with my recent call about my accident at the property due to the fact no warning was issued about the very low door lintel into the bathroom upstairs, where I hit my head quite badly, sustaining a concussion and had to curtail the holiday after just 3 days."

    I thought I would at least get a phone call asking how I was and I think most caring people would have offered a bit of a refund under the circumstances. Very disappointed.

  • "Lovely peaceful cottage at the end of a narrow country lane."

    Lots of original features including two wooden winding staircases which may be difficult to navigate for the infirm or elderly and there is a very low door into the bathroom, about chest height. I was surprised how warm the cottage got with the heating on for such an old property. Well equipped kitchen, it even has a dishwasher which it doesn't say on the website. The freezer is hidden in a cupboard near the kitchen door, took me ages to find it. Very good Wifi.

  • "I cannot praise this holiday property highly enough (and I am not that easily thrilled!"

    ). The absolute beauty, the tranquility of this rural idyll both charmed and impressed us. I will certainly return - the most gorgeous everything! The Hall is so well equipped and comfortable. I took quite some kitchen stuff and discovered it was nearly all there. Like home, and very welcoming. The heating, hot water and the shower upstairs performed brilliantly, no complications. I just love the age, floors and staircases, layout of the house together with all mod cons, including WiFi. The only thing my (very) tall friend said was is there a way to warn about the lower beam between the kitchen and laundry room? I said "duck!". So thank you again for an enchanting place to stay.

    Thank you for your kind, reassuring words. Denbigh Hall is a special place and it’s nice to know we’re not alone in thinking so. We’ll have a think about that beam/archway. Jonathan and Caroline Property Owner

The property

Presteigne 4.1 miles.

Denbigh Hall is a detached, character cottage settled in Stansbatch near Presteigne, Herefordshire.

Constructed 300 years ago and enjoying easy access to a walking trail, Denbigh Hall is the perfect countryside retreat for a family of six.

After parking in one of the two handy off-road parking spaces, make your way inside the house to be welcomed by a well-presented kitchen, a space sporting colourful tiling, a good selection of appliances, along with dual-aspect windows that give the space a light and airy feel.

When the budding chef has cooked up a storm in the kitchen, set the table in the close-by dining room, a rustic space enjoying exposed stonework, that makes for a fabulous socialising and dining spot.

After enjoying an indulgent meal, progress to the sitting room, where you can stretch out on the sofas under exposed beams and in front of the toasty woodburning stove and TV.

Completing the ground floor is a utility room housing a handy washer/dryer, as well as a contemporary shower room, enjoying marble tiling throughout and a glass cubicle.

When day turns to night, climb the wooden staircase to find three thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, where you can tuck the little ones up in the charming twin, before resting in a double with a stylish, iron bed frame and access to a fabulous en-suite bathroom, where you can choose to soak up in a roll-top bath or rinse off in the glass, walk-in shower; further along you can find another, welcoming double.

The garden is definitely a highlight of the property, featuring a spacious lawn that is home to a hammock for you to savour an afternoon nap on, before relishing a spot of alfresco dining or simply enjoying a book on the patio; the space also boasts stunning views of the countryside, so be sure to make the most of it!

You can wander to Titley to find the delightful pub of The Stagg Inn, or continue to Presteigne, where all of your amenities rest in one setting, including a range of pubs, eateries and shops; Presteigne is also home to the fascinating Judge's Lodging and enjoys access to the vast Nash Wood, where you can cycle or walk to your heart's content.

For a day out with a difference, travel to Leopminster, where you can enjoy a tour of the Leominster Museum, stop for a bite to eat at The White Lion Inn, before venturing a little further afield to the breathtaking, 15th century Hampton Court Castle for an idyllic afternoon outing.

Hay-on-Wye is a scenic drive away and is home to the fantastic Hay Castle, the delightful outdoor space of The Warren, and a weekly market where you can pick up local wares.

For more fun in Herefordshire, be sure to visit Ludlow and Hereford where plenty of activities are waiting to be partaken in, or wander north to the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for a day immersed in the outdoors.

For a rural escape in a quaint retreat, choose Denbigh Hall.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
