  • "Really lovely stay!"

    We loved the peace and quiet and the warm welcome we had from Jonathan! We will be booking again. Great location, great value for money. If we had to improve anything about it I think it would just be having some salt and pepper available as we didn’t even think to bring and also the knifes we’re too blunt to use but these are really minute things and when we come again we will just bring our own.

  • "The accommodation was very clean and well presented, in a lovely quiet location."

    The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and provided a delightful welcome hamper. Enjoyed lots of local walks and it was also convenient for walks in the Brecon Beacons. Very friendly local pub just 10 minutes walk away.

  • "The accommodation was fabulous, spotless in all rooms, lovely fresh bedding and towels and fab welcome hamper."

    There is a great area to give your pooch a run. The owners are very friendly. If there is a downside, it’s that the local pub, 10 mins walk away is very dated and not great quality food (though it is cheap), however the fish and chip shop is good. In the summer or warmer months the property would be ideal for outside cooking and eating.

  • "We had a wonderful time in 'Granary 2'."

    It is a lovely, quiet location which is well-positioned for trips around the attractions in Herefordshire, along the Wye valley and in Wales. There was lots of information provided in the property on local attractions and walks. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and their welcome was warm. A special thank you to Kate for the welcome basket of goodies and to Jonathan for allowing us to pick some fruit from the trees in his orchard. We'll definitely be booking again and have already been recommending the cottage to our friends. Thank you for a lovely week!

  • "Firstly please note that the field next to the cottage is no longer cut back it's overgrown and not very pleasant to sit in."

    the pound is more like a swamp and it's full of spiders and bugs. the fence has gaps in so small dogs can get out if they want to. the bath is very slim so you can't relax and the shower had kept coming off and hit me in the face one time. the bed was a bit small and not as comfy as I'd like. only one sofa so mot much room to sit. no washing machine dishwasher etc. TV small and sound has terrible. the place is built on top of anther cottage so you have to be social all the time. owners house on top of yours so be prepared for busy farm work on ur door step. owners are friendly and the surrounding areas are nice. if you want a basic stay with other people below you and overgrown grounds then it will be fine. if you like peace space and luxury then it's not for you.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner was very disappointed to see your review as she went out of her way to provide a card as per your request and bake special brownies for your special occasion. The garden in places has been allowed to grow longer as feedback from guest advised that dogs who visit enjoy exploring in the long grass. The pond does have local wildlife in it as you would expect at this time of year. With reference to the fence it does show that the property is surrounded by trees and greenery and the listing does not advise that it has a dog proof garden, this as you can appreciate is very difficult for the owner to guarantee. The shower has been recently fitted and the owner was surprised to find it broken after your stay, if they had know it was causing problems during your stay they would have been only too happy to assist with it. The property has excellent feedback and we stand by the listing information on our website. I'm sorry that Granary 2 wasn't suited to your needs or requirements. Property Owner

    It was the perfect location for a peaceful, stress free break. The open plan layout of the apartment was simple, stylish and comfortable, with everything you need and nothing that you don't. Kate the owner, left us a lovely welcome hamper with some lovely goodies and a few basic essentials which was greatly appreciated. The surrounding area is beautiful, with some stunning countryside right on the doorstep. There is a local pub, just 10 mins walk away in Madley and it is so welcoming and friendly with great quality pub grub, we ended up going nearly every night! All in all the Granary is the perfect stay for those who want a quiet, calm and relaxing stay.

  • "Absolutely immaculate modern conversion with original features, this was a stunning place to stay beautiful Hereford."

    The property: Wonderful top level apartment, with bathroom (bath, shower & heated towel rail), bedroom (Twin bed) and large Kitchen/lounge. We were delighted to receive a gift basket upon our arrival (Bread, bree, biscuits, chocolate, etc..) and even more delighted with the owners Kate and Jonathan who were so friendly and engaging, they made us feel special. They also dropped us off a home made Bara Brith (not usually a fan but this was amazing) and even made the literal best chocolate brownies ever for me wife's birthday. They were also great to just have a chat with. Kitchen has an eclectic HOB/oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and also a coffee machine (they even supplied a number of pods). Plenty of cutlery for use. The building has some of its original features, which was nice, it did a get a little hot in there however there was ample ventilation one we worked out how to open the roof windows. Although the grounds the building is on contain another holiday home below it and the owners home next door there is plenty of space, specifically a sizeable grassed area at the back of the cottage overlooking a pond with a BBQ pit and benches, table, we ate outside on 3 times during our week in this area. You will definitely need a car to get about however the driving is quite pleasant (during the daytime). Things to do: There isn't much in the local area, two pubs, a shop, a takeaway and a surprisingly large church. If you fancy good food and more to do visit Hay-on-Wye which is about 20 minutes away by car - lovely town with great sites, restaurants, market and walks (particularly the river walk - just make sure you take the time to visit the warren for a quick dip). You can visit Hereford if you fancy the hustle & bustle of a small city - pubs, cinema, restaurants a lot of shops. There are a lot of national trust sites nearby. Overall an amazing stay in an amazing place with amazing hosts with lots of things to do.

    The journey to Hay takes approximately 30 minutes along a pretty B road and then it's a five minute transfer to the festival site by shuttle bus - all very easy. Granary 2 was a lovely place to relax after a busy day at the festival. It is a well equipped, comfortable and spacious property with access to an enclosed garden with a pond. There is a pub a short walk away in the village where you can eat or have a drink. Kate and Jonathan our hosts were very helpful and generous. A beautiful basket of goodies/treats and flowers was there on arrival. The surrounding area is beautiful and we would love to come back and discover more.
