    - Very well kept, clean and very cosy in the winter (underfloor heating helps!). The owner is also really friendly and great to deal with. As much as I don't want to complain about anything, I think there are a few things that could be done to make this the best place we've stayed in and somewhere we would come back to EVERY YEAR! My friends and I go cycling in Wales every year. We are a group of (mature) guys, either 4 or 5 strong. The places we return to have a games room (which Bushmills has, HOWEVER IT STATES ON THE ADVERT THAT THERE IS A POOL TABLE AND THERE IS NOT ONE! - Which was actually disappointing given its one of the reasons we picked it), somewhere to store bikes (again covered), has a decent TV and Sky for the evenings (Bushmills does not have) and decent internet, as there or 4 or 5 of us trying to get on line when we are in the house (something Bushmills really lacks). Whilst I understand that some rural places don't have great internet, we find plenty of places in the local area that do, so it doesn't feel like that should be the reason Bushmills lacks. Its that bad I would even suggest either removing "WiFi" from the advert, or at least explain to people that it is next to useless. (dial up speed only).

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.
