"The photos do not do this cabin justice!"
As soon as we walked in we realised how lucky we were to have found such a beautiful place to stay for the weekend! We loved it that much we have actually booked it again for next year and with an extra night!
"This is a good barn conversion, adequately furnished."
A reclining chair would be useful for older and more infirm persons.
"This was a lovely property and even better than on the photos listed."
Some lovely treats left for us as well as milk and tea and coffee. The fire was laid up ready for us too. We gave Lindsay a call about a couple of issues and the response was really quick and they were sorted in no time, a lovely friendly lady. Would definitely look at visiting again.
"Possibly says it all that it was our third year running that we stayed at a Bushmills ."
It’s a wonderfully comfortable house in a quiet but beautiful location. Extremely well equipped and thought out. If it’s important to other visitors the mobile signal is poor but the wifi decent. I can’t imagine we won’t be back.
"I have written to the holiday owner separately."
"Great week of summery weather."
A pleasure to enjoy the sunrise whilst having breakfast outside. Lovely rural location with lots of superb walking nearby. Games room and BBQ added to our enjoyment of Bushmills. Bit odd that Bushmills was set up as if COVID was still a significant threat, and a sad reminder of tough times we’d put behind us. Overall, Bushmills worked very well for us. Would happily book it again for a summer holiday.
"We had a lovely week with the whole family (9) at Bushmills."
It is very spacious and comfortable and the garden was ideal for 3 small children. A little remote but that didn't stop us having days out and enjoying the countryside. Plenty of parking, lovely welcome touches...milk, cider, snacks and flowers provided by the host who was very prompt in answering queries. The view was amazing and it was so peaceful! Loved our time at National Trust - The Weir and also Raglan Farm and Hay on Wye...picnic at The Warren and paddling in the river.
"An excellent venue in a most beautiful spot."
"Bushmills was a great location and size for our family group of 8 adults."
The views from the house are stunning especially of the rainbows which kept appearing because of showery weather! The cyclists and runners amongst us loved being able to access quiet country lanes and footpaths so easily. 3 nights wasn't long enough though!
"I don’t think the pictures do it justice, the place is amazing with a view I could never tire of."
Lovely and clean cupboards are full of every utensil or cooking implement you could need, beds are huge and comfy
"An excellent holiday property in every way."
Extremely peaceful with beautiful views. A super time was had by all. Thank you!
"Excellent property for Easter Break with 2 x families"
"Lovely cottage, great family space."
We all loved our stay, children loved being able to sleep with their cousins and the adults loved all the additional touches. Milk in fridge and chocolates to enjoy a nice cup of tea on arrival.
"Beautiful location and lovely house."
Open plan living area worked really well with multiple families staying. Everything was well stocked and good facilities available for cooking meals. Had great fun in the games room.
"Beautiful property, perfect for our needs for a family birthday party weekend."
Very well equipped with everything we needed. Lovely and toasty warm with underfloor heating. Convenient for local pub, the Gwatkin Red Cow, which was booked for our meal on Saturday evening. Thanks for a lovely stay. Will certainly recommend Bushmills to friends.
"Bushmills was an excellent property, the photos don't do it justice."
We had 3 nights and as a family , we had everything we could possibly want for catering for a large group. It is a large property with 4 great size rooms. Plenty of space and facilities. We would happily come back.
"We had a fantastic family Christmas stay at Bushmills."
The owners kindly decorated and left some complimentary bits to get us started, which was much appreciated. The barn has everything you could possibly need for a stay. The layout is fantastic for a family. The location is amazing, with great views.
"My husband and I recently booked this for my son's 30th birthday, to stay with his sister, her fiancé & a few friends."
They said the property was wonderful and they had a fantastic stay. The owners had left chocolates too which was very thoughtful. Would definitely recommend!
"Fantastic place to stay."
Property was immaculate and exactly was stated in the description. Myself and my friends were all highly impressed, and already want to book to come to Bushmills again!
"My family and I love this cottage ,it is our third visit and are all hoping to be back next year ,the cottage is spotless,children enjoy its own playroom,."
Thank you so much x
"What a fantastic property."
We had a lovely stay at Bushmills. We had one issue during the stay - just one of those things, but it was resolved within an hour. Great level of service from the hosts who were super friendly.
"This was our second time at the property which is spacious , well equipped and very comfortable."
It is in a beautiful part of Herefordshire with stunning views.
"A great place for a large family get together."
Great for parking. Lovely quiet location. Nice local walks and lovely outlook. Appreciated the maps and the complimentary bits a pieces. Thanks it was a great stay.
"A very well equipped property which had been thoroughly cleaned."
Located in a beautiful area we were occupied for the week with walks and visits to multiple tourist locations not too far away including the Black and White village trail, Black Mountains, Hay on Wye and Hereford. Some uninvited guests including a couple of bats enlivened our stay but, hey, it's the countryside. The games room was an added bonus.
"It was simply beautiful everything you could ever want , extremely clean , I ..."
It was simply beautiful everything you could ever want , extremely clean , I could not fault it at all , it was perfect Thank you
"Everything you could want (and more)."
This was the second time we have stayed at Bushmills and the whole group of 9 had a terrific time.
"What a fantastic stay!"
! Even better than we imagined, the pictures don’t do this gorgeous property justice. It’s beautiful! Everything was so clean, we had all the facilities and kitchen equipment that we needed and more, which is a huge bonus when there’s 8 of you! We loved having four bathrooms too, no waiting around in the morning. The beds were really comfy and the property was so toasty warm! I’d give this 6 stars if I could
"Very comfortable house, quiet idyllic surroundings."
"We had a great week, a really lovely barn conversion."
Comfortable, warm and very well equipped. Loved the games room too.
"A beautiful location with great facilities."
The barn conversion was well laid out and a most interesting house to visit. A very memorable holiday.
"Great house for a family holiday, this is a very spacious house."
Well equipped kitchen, lots of crockery, cutlery etc, which you don’t always get.
"We had a wonderful holiday in this beautifully converted and located property."
It’s very spacious ,well equipped and thoughtfully laid out. The views are stunning and we were lucky enough to see a pair of Red Kites circling above on our first morning. It is a quiet area of Herefordshire but not far from Hereford or Hay on Wye. Dore Abbey is worth a look and there are some lovely old church’s nearby including the fascinating and beautifully located one at nearby Bacton. We enjoyed some competitive table tennis in the games room and ignore any grumbles in early reviews about the WiFi . It’s been upgraded and is excellent. Hope to go back . Ideal for families or groups of friends .
"Lovely peaceful spot in Hereford."
Everything as stated, communication with owner very straightforward with everything as anyone would wish for as regards to Covid arrangements. Very enjoyable stay. Chocolates and cider on our arrival a very nice touch. Thank you.
"This property was perfect for our weekend away, plenty to keep the kids entertained whilst we relaxed!"
"Lindsey was great."
So helpful and friendly, she was so understanding. We enjoyed our experience and would recommend Bushmill to others.
"Lovely rural place to stay."
The cottage is well equipped with everything you need. It is to a great standard. On the listing it says there is a pool table there isn't. You have ping pong, table football and darts.
"Was an amazing getaway the weather was lovley the host was friendly an the neighbors were really friendly."
It is very quiet an peaceful the house was lovely with a modern cottage look the games room added to the fun an the bbq helped us out a great deal for the cooking. Only downside should have supplied more loo rolls an paper towels along with more washing sponges. I guess thats wasnt thought about as we were the first people to stay during this covid era
"Perfect peaceful location for a family get together."
Very helpful owner. Cosy and comfortable.
"A lovely cosy barn conversion."
Our family enjoyed it very much. Would definitely recommend.
"Overall this is a great place to stay!"
- 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).
"The roads to and from the cottage are a bit narrow."
Over all we had a great time. Thank you.
"We went away for my mum’s 60 th birthday."
Everything we needed was at the cottage! There were plenty of kitchen utensils, cutlery, pans, cups, lively Prosecco glasses! Washing up liquid, bin bags and tea towels. There was a box of toys for he children, plenty of extra bedding, fans as it was very hot while we were there. Toilet roll and hand wash also available. So we had a great start to our weekend. The house was very clean and had a lovely feel to it, the photos really don’t do it justice- it’s beautiful. There is space to play games outside and a picnic bench and bbq which we used. It’s a very rural location which suited us. So handy to plan food in advance. We used the local chippy first night- about 3 mile away but quite a queue! Worth it though for the tasty fish!! Second day we went shopping to a supermarket. Great place to go for beautiful scenery and to get away from it all. The WiFi was unreliable which was only a problem when we were trying to google Things to do!! We had a brilliant time and I highly recommend this place for a holiday- you won’t be disappointment. Booking through Sykes was easy and hassle free too. Give it a go
"Wonderful conversion, beatifully built."
Peaceful; a perfect place to relax
"Really peaceful location."
Although we didn't use either loved the wood burner and BBQ. Prosecco in the fridge was a nice touch. Some sharper knives in the kitchen would have made it a perfect stay.
"My Sykes app very useful, all information required was to hand at all times."
Also liked the places of interest sent through, The cottage we stayed in was lovely, with a kind owner leaving fresh chicken eggs and treats for the kids. Everything was as described and very enjoyable.
"The owner was unobtrusive, extremely delightful and helpful when needed."
This is an excellent, spacious, modern holiday home for 3 generations as we were. Good, quiet, downstairs twin bedded (we pushed them together with ease) room and a small shower room for the older couple. Upstairs three large bedrooms (one triple bedded), two with en suites and a large bathroom for the others. All the furnishings, bed linen, etc are good quality. Everyone remarked on the comfort of the beds. A wonderful outlook with lots of parking not obscuring the panoramic view. The games room is an absolute bonus, especially when, as we had, some very ‘mixed’ weather. Our only negative, not being walkers, was that Kerry’s Gate is fairly rural with limited attractions in a 30 min radius. None of us keen in spending much time in a car having got there. But it did enable a younger member to go down memory lane in south Shropshire with his wife and children matching family paintings of their village done in the 70s and 80s by great grandparents to the landscape as it now is. Much unchanged should you wonder. The Abbey at Abbey Dore, Owl and Small Breeds Centre (don't stroke the owl as suggested if you value your fingers!) and Hay on Wye worth a visit. A good time was had by all.
"A lovely property run by equally lovely owners."
We did have a problem during our stay but this was sorted out extremely quickly to our approval.
"A wonderful property in a rural setting."
Ideal for large family get togethers or walking groups. Good all year round venue.
"We had to leave early for family reasons and the owners Mr and Mrs Jenkins couldn’t have been more helpful."
We would love to go back sometime soon.
"The games room was an added bonus for us especially being a few miles from a near town."
Bushmills was clean and welcoming. The outdoors was spectacular and an extension of indoors. The rooms were all a good size and comfortable. U have already recommended this to others
"Excellent family holiday."
Plenty to do come rain or shine. The children & dads enjoyed the games room. The lawn hosted a brilliant water fight & the BBQ area was fantastic. We had extra guests there for the birthday meal but there was enough plates etc to go around. The kitchen was big enough to house 2 chefs. Would definitely stay there again.
"We really enjoyd the space and facilities at Bushmills."
We were sad to learn that it was already booked for the same period next year or we would have re-booked.
"The house was more over looked than we imagined."
"This was a very warm, comfortable and well equipped property that was a perfect place for us have to have a family Christmas."
Having a downstairs bedroom was a real plus point for the eldest member of the party. If anything the pictures of the living area and kitchen didn’t do justice to the space or level of comfort. I don’t remember reading anything about the views from the cottage or garden so that was a pleasant surprise.
"Brilliant property,great location,,very cosy,no problems except for a slight plumbing problem,which was rectified with a phone call."
Brilliant weekend. 10/10.

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 Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons) 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.
