  • "The property itself is well presented, spotlessly clean and everything is provided - I need not have packed the "extras" that are usually needed when self-catering!"

    The only slight inconvenience was the very small and low wattage microwave; not too much problem for the two of us, but not sure how a party of 4 would cope - perhaps everybody eats out! The garden area is nice for outdoor eating, but the wooden garden table/bench is well weathered.

  • "Excellent property with all the facilities you would expect."

    Log fire was excellent as it was pretty cold weather during our stay. Local pub the Angel was great. Excellent location for visiting a number of great places. Ludlow being top of the list. But also Hereford, Leominster and hay-on-wye. Castle's and national trust properties all close by.

    Thanks Dave for taking the time to feedback on the property and facilities; sounds like you were able to visit a lot of the area’s best bits – just as any good getaway should! Glad you had a great stay and thank you for choosing Bullfinch Cottage. Property Owner

  • "If you want a peaceful get away from it all place this is it!"

    The cottage was very cozy and warm, perfect for a winter break. The owners couldn’t have been more helpful, we were spoiled with a welcome pack and the place was decorated for Christmas which we hadn’t expected but really appreciated. There were plenty of places to walk the dog, and it was easy to get to shops and towns when needed. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Thank you very much for your kind words Annette, it was a pleasure to welcome you to Bullfinch Cottage. Delighted to hear the decorations and welcome pack were well received and that you have a lovely, peaceful, cosy stay. Property Owner

    Hosts were very friendly, kind and helpful. Cottage perfectly kitted out and pleasantly decorated. I just wish this cottage were closer to home so I could hide there at weekends!

    Thank you very much Mariana for your kind words, glad you all had a lovely time and absolutely happy to welcome you back for a quiet hideaway stay! Property Owner

  • "We had a warm and comfortable stay at Bullfinch cottage ."

    The facilities were very clean . The sofa and kitchen chairs were rather saggy ,needed a cushion on the chair to sit at the table ! Liked the eco products and the owners were helpful ……Ann

    Hi Roger and Ann, thank you for your feedback – delighted first and foremost that your stay with us was warm and comfortable and appreciate the cleanliness call-out. We’ll take a look at the chairs and sofa – we think some of this could relate to personal preference to a certain extent as some like the ‘sink-in’ feel of a sofa whilst others prefer a bit of a firmer seat – but we’ll review softness against sagginess as we appreciate the two are not the same thing.

    Everything that we wished for was there, it was spacious, clean, peaceful, furnished and fitted to a very high quality. An ideal location to refresh and relax.

    Hi Alan, thank you for your feedback – we’re so delighted everything was too your liking and satisfaction and many thanks for your kind review – happy to welcome you back anytime! Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Road leading to cottage quite a lot of pot holes. Bedrooms had low beams which meant had to keep head bent for fear of hitting the beams. Apart from that couldn’t fault the accommodation

    Thank you for your comments John – glad the cottage was to your liking, appreciate some of the exposed beams can be something to be mindful of but hopefully all part of the charm too; wrt to the road to the cottages this is actually a public highway which we do petition the Council routinely on to keep it in good order.

  • "Very clean and comfortable accommodation."

    Cottage was well equipped and furnished. Care had been taken to present information clearly to guests in the folder, demonstrating care for the comfort, safety and well-being of their guests. Really appreciated the eco-cleaning products and toilet rolls. Lovely setting and surroundings, we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you

    Thank you very much for your kind review – we do try to be conscious with our footprint, with the products we use and stock in the cottage, so thanks for highlighting this, also too, with regards to the level of information we provide – much appreciated. We’re very pleased you had a lovely stay and everything was to your satisfaction. Please come back anytime! Property Owner

  • "Comfort is purely because of my height - as this is an older property, shouldn't be surprised that there are low beams - and facilities is just because we needed to reset the fuse box when the electricity turned off overnight, which could've been more frustrating if there were more devices needing to be charged/more stuff in the fridge and freezer but didn't affect us too badly."

    It was a little tough to see the sign to turn into the property originally due to overgrown plants around it, but once we figured it out every other part of the stay was great. Very peaceful area, and quite welcoming.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and offer feedback – all gratefully received. Sorry to hear you had a brief inconvenience with a fuse but that it was quickly resolved and in relation to the off-property signage - that was indeed suffering a little under some recent/decent floral growth - we have since attended to this to aid navigation to the cottage. We’re happy you enjoyed the rest of your stay and we agree entirely with your ‘peaceful area’ comment. Property Owner

    Helpful owners. Particularly liked the TV as it was simple to operate. Good level of equipment.

    Thank you for taking a moment to feedback on our cottage and its facilities, we’re glad you enjoyed your stay and everything was to your liking! We hope to welcome you back one day. Property Owner

    Your kind words are much appreciated, and absolutely, with Kington just a 20-25min drive from the cottage, we’re a great base indeed for Offa’s Dyke – glad you enjoyed yourselves, and we’d love to welcome you back again one day. Property Owner

  • "Great cottage, great stay."

    The sofa could do with a reupholster, as you sink in. The chairs at the dining table are also in need of an upholster as again you sink in. A small welcome basket with a few basics would be a nice touch, you always feel really welcome when the owners do this. Overall the stay was really nice and a good location with plenty of parking.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, sorry to hear that the sofas and dining chairs weren’t quite to your liking, but we are pleased you enjoyed your overall stay, the cottage and its amenities. We too think that our cottages are exceptionally well placed for exploring surrounding villages, towns and for days out so thank you for noting that and many thanks for choosing ‘Bullfinch’ for your Herefordshire stay.

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage in a rural location."

    Plenty of wildlife to see. The hosts are on hand to ensure you have everything needed but otherwise leave you to enjoy your holiday. I was so pleased to see the 'eco' cleaning stuff, handwash, toilet rolls etc. It really did feel like a home from home. Facilities for recycling too. We only used the log burner once as we had a brief chilly spell on the Sunday, but the cottage was plenty warm enough with just the central heating.

    Thank you so much for the lovely review, we’re so glad you enjoyed your stay at ‘Bullfinch’ and your “home from home” reference is most pleasing to read as we do strive to make the cottage(s) homely to stay in. The wildlife is definitely a plus too - there’s always something marvellous to see at ‘The Buzzards Holiday Cottages’ isn’t there. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderfully relaxed and peaceful stay in this cottage."

    It was wonderfully warm, we didn't need to use the log burner even though it did snow whilst we were there and there was an enormous basket of logs. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment, although a few more mugs would have been useful when there were 4 of us there. The owners were on hand and very helpful when we needed advice. I would thoroughly recommend this property and we hope to return again.

    Thank you for your kind words, we’re delighted you enjoyed your stay – it is a very peaceful spot isn’t it – and taking on board your feedback we’ll certainly add a few more mugs for teas and coffees. Hope to see you again and thank you for choosing to stay at Bullfinch cottage. All the best, Ed, Nena and Jo. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    Near to some interesting places to visit. Just a couple of suggestions: The kitchen was very well stocked but May l suggest a group of prep boards for meat/fish/vegetables. Also perhaps a small welcome/starter pack, such as milk, bread and eggs. The hosts were on hand for any queries but not intrusive. Thank you and regards from June, Brian and Susie.

    Thank for your kind comments and taking the time to provide some feedback. The cottages do contain some chopping boards but indeed they are wooden - we’re trying our best to minimise our plastic footprint but we will review our inventory to take account of uses for mixed purposes. Hope all is well with Susie and we’d love to welcome you all back again some time. Property Owner
