  • "We loved staying at Grove Cottage!"

    It was comfortably furnished with a lovely mix of old and new and very well-equipped. On arrival we found a wonderful welcome hamper, plus milk in the fridge, coffee and tea, and a gorgeous homemade victoria sponge. There were also supplies of toilet rolls, handwash, clingfilm and foil, plus cleaning products. The upstairs is quite dinky, just the two bedrooms, the double a good size, the twin fairly compact, but downstairs has been very imaginatively extended to make a very spacious living space. One point that is not mentioned in the details is that, no doubt as a result of extending an old cottage, there are a lot of changes of floor level downstairs, some actual steps, but some just enough to make a trip hazard until you're used to them. Other than that, the cottage is delightful! There was no shortage of hot water and the heating was easy to control (despite it being June, the weather was so chilly we used it selectively morning and evening). The pretty garden, beautifully maintained, was lovely to sit in when we did get some sun and my husband really enjoyed the hot tub. One final positive in our eyes was that all the windows had blinds or, in the case of the large window in the lounge/diner, thick curtains. On a chilly night, it was nice to be able to close off the encroaching darkness, even though the cottage was secluded, but too many holiday cottages seem to think it unnecessary.

    Thank you both for your kind and thoughtful review. We greatly appreciate the time taken to do this and your advice. We have added some extra pans with lids and the door lock which was new but faulty has now been replaced by the Builders Merchant. We hope you will return. Kind regards Zena & Roger Property Owner

  • "Had a wonderful, relaxing stay in Grove cottage."

    We were welcomed by a lovely card, a basket of tasty treats and delicious lemon cake, which was a much needed treat after our long journey to get here. The cottage was clean and well maintained and had everything we needed and the kitchen was very well equipped. The hot tub was a huge bonus and felt very private and secluded of an evening with the garden lights making the space feel cosy. The restaurant at the golf club at the bottom of the track served delicious food and is handy if you don't fancy travelling for food or things to do, but the cottage is also well located for exploring the wider area with plenty of things to see and do a short drive away. The owners provided a folder full of useful information which included nearby attractions and restaurants to visit. Would definitely recommend staying here

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and pleased you both enjoyed your break. Hope you will return. Kind regards Zena & Roger Property Owner

    We were made to feel welcome at the cottage with a lovely hamper and cake and then by friendly faces at the driving range and bowling alley. The cottage itself was cosy but had everything we needed, even extras for travelling with a 6 month old. Zena suggested some great places to visit and when we returned the log fire and hot tub were a great combination. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    My only complain would be the lack of pans for frying things, which is obviously not that much of a big deal!

    We are pleased you liked Grove Cottage over New Year. We have been guided by Sykes on our equipment and apologise for the lack of frying pans. We did enquire on your arrival if you needed anything, to please let us know. We have taken on board your comment and have added another frying pan. Kind Regards Zena & Roger Property Owner

    We cannot recommend this beautiful property highly enough. The cottage is in a beautifully secluded location but is close enough to get to lovely local areas. It is on the edge of a golf course site with easy access to its bowling alley and crazy golf which were great for the kids. The restaurant on site is wonderful too! Zena and Roger are amazing hosts, we walked in to the most thoughtful welcome pack of treats and necessities, as well as a delicious homemade cake! Zena checked in on us to make sure we were okay during the stay. Our favourite part was probably the hot tub, sitting in it of an evening looking up at the night sky is just amazing, much needed relaxation! We will definitely be back, thank you Zena and Roger!

    Lovely two bedroom grade 2 listed, a real gem. Set at the end of a tract at the golf course, well equipped inside and heated hot tub outside. Bonus was the facilities at the club, excellent restaurant serving value for money meals. Adventure putting course and ten pin bowling. Wednesday bowl and steak is a must. The other surprise with this property is the hamper, eggs, cake etc that you find on arrival. Wonderful set up Zena and Roger.

    Repeat visit required for sure! Grove cottage is a beautiful game keepers cottage, just off the beaten track pretty much secluded, in the grounds of a golf course beautiful decor and amenities. Comfortable, clean and it says come back for more. The hamper was the best we've ever had with any break we've had through Sykes, cake, eggs, bread, snacks etc etc even milk.to enjoy a coffee once we arrived and seeming it was our wedding anniversary break Zena and Roger had left us an extra celebratory gift in the fridge to enjoy toasting in the hot tub later. Thank you :-) We enjoyed our time visited the Hickory stick restaurant for the Wednesday Steak and bowl which we couldn't fault with friends who visited for the day but they also do food through out the day starting with breakfast til 6pm. Recommended to friends already and they will be booking up too. Things we did while there, was a trip to the Newcourt cider just down the road, The Bush Inn for a very different afternoon tea, Monkland cheese dairy, local cosy pub in Leominster the White lion and Coffee, cake and more at St Michael's hospice coffee and books. Sure there's lots more to explore yet that we didn't get to do. We did plan to go to Queenswood park/arboretum and a few walks and a visit to the local deli in town but that'll be on the list next time. As you can see a most enjoyable stay.

The property

Leominster 3.7 miles.

Grove Cottage is an idyllic country retreat in a splendid Grade II listed Game Keepers Cottage designed by John Nash and Humphrey Repton whilst they were working on the Hampton Court Estate for the Arkwright family.

John Nash also designed Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch, Royal Pavilion and Regent Street.

The Cottage design was a template given to many of the Estates and this one was for a Game Keepers Cottage for the Hampton Court Estate.

Situated up a lane on the owner’s farm, in the hamlet of Ford Bridge near Leominster, Herefordshire.

This idyllic country retreat is a perfect choice for families and friends looking to experience the wonders of Herefordshire, with access to plenty of on-site facilities including an 18-hole golf course, ten pin bowling, bar, and a restaurant.

Step inside Grove Cottage, a characterful Game Keepers Cottage with plenty of charm, and you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice box and a breakfast bar.

The ideal space for creating delicious home-cooked meals, the kitchen opens into a spacious living/dining room complete with a woodburning stove and Smart TV, perfect for cosy nights in.

The utility room houses a washing machine and tumble dryer, so you can easily freshen up your wardrobe.

Wind down the day in one of the two bedrooms, pick from a king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom, both stylishly presented.

Freshen up in the ground-floor shower room before heading out to explore the beautiful countryside.

Finally, make the most of the peaceful location with a glass of something special on the spacious garden patio with furniture, fire pit and hot tub, bringing a touch of luxury to your stay.

Within the grounds you can create some friendly competition- If you enjoy a round of golf then there are two challenging nine hole courses, professionally landscaped with outstanding stone and water features.

Combined with top class playing surfaces, rolling woodland with panoramic views and you can see why this is an excellent challenge whatever your golfing standard, either 9 holes on the original Badger Course, popular with golfers of all levels but particularly loved by less experienced players or when time is a premium.

The Deer Run gives a challenging links type course with large full U.S.G.A․ spec greens and sand tees, giving excellent drainage, playing surfaces and holding Greens.

Both these courses can be played as either 9 holes or combined as 18 holes with professional tuition available and there is Leominster Golf Course next door to us which is an additional 18 holes.

Why not check out the 18 hole Mini Adventure Golf course which has been built to test the putting skills of all ages and abilities and enables everyone to join in the fun with all equipment provided.

To compliment the course, a beer garden has been built with a central oak barn and al fresco seating area.

When it comes to exploring the local area, the historic market town of Leominster is just a brief drive away, where you can peruse the local boutiques, sample some traditional British cuisine, pop into a local bar for a relaxing drink, or visit one of the four museums for a taste of the town’s rich history.

Stroll along the River Lugg, past Tithe Barn and take in the beautiful collection of independent shops and cafes or walk through the beautiful Leominster Priory also known as the Cathedral of the Marches.

Ten miles away lies Hereford, home to its ancient, chained library and famous Mappa Mundi, or venture along the Hereford/Shropshire border, with plenty of delightful towns and villages to explore, such as Ludlow, Pembridge, and Tenbury Wells.

Whether you’re looking to explore the countryside with loved ones or simply searching for a peaceful retreat, Grove Cottage has it all, offering an unforgettable Herefordshire adventure.

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