  • "It was a lovely place and the owners are lovely to!"

    ! However the bed is not that comfy! However not much really too do round there other than walks but even then it’s not good as the roads are not made for walking and pitch black at night!! Had to drive out to places during the day to do stuff! But did go to the local pub Nags head which isn’t far and lovely owners and food.

  • "The Chocolate House was lovely and cozy, with stunning views."

    The hosts, who live a few metres away, were delightful, friendly and welcoming, as was their beautiful Irish setter. My Labrador and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Bringing food and drink supplies is helpful; the village shop has the basics but it's a bit sparse and the nearest bigger shop is nearly 10 miles. Nice village pub, but again other places to eat will probably involve getting in the car.

  • "Christine, Ian and Monty their dog made us very welcome."

    A bottle of wine and milk along with a few bits & piece's were left for our enjoyment. A lovely private garden, very quiet & peaceful. We had a lovely week travelling around Herefordshire. Had a great Sunday roast at the Pandy Inn in Dorstone, a few miles away from the cottage, we were made very welcome with our dog by the Landlady.

  • "Owners were very pleasant and helpful."

    Cottage smaller than expected. My issue is not with the cottage or the owners. It is with Sykes. Outstanding queries about the extra costs still not dealt with. After using Sykes many times I am now having second thoughts about you.

  • "Our hosts were really friendly and helpful."

    Monty the dog was lovely and got on well with our dog. Although the cottage was in their garden we had our privacy. This cottage was in a really beautiful part of Herefordshire and easy for us to get to where we wanted to go. Plenty of walks near by and places to get to by car. Thankyou for a much needed break.

    ! Initially booked to complete my first novel (My Best Friend’s Husband) which is almost done!! The peace was phenomenal, the cottage was warm as toast, the sky and stars were stunning. The hosts went above and beyond. Every detail was attended to. I will go back again and again!!

    The owner Christine met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. The grounds were ideal for a dog as we could let Roofus roam around with the resident dog Monty as it was all enclosed. The chocolate house was just as advertised, cosy, comfortable in a lovely setting. All in all it was such a relaxing and peaceful experience!

  • "Lovely, friendly owner who made us most welcome, as did Monty - what a sweetheart he is!"

    Cottage was initially a bit difficult to find, because it is tucked away up a narrow country lane, in a quiet location, set within pretty, well maintained gardens. It is cosy, comfortable and well equipped. We particularly appreciated the decent shower cubicle in the bathroom. Wifi was a little slow and patchy, but we managed fine. Peterchurch has some excellent facilities and it is very handy for Hereford, Hay on Wye etc and is on a bus route. You can walk to the bistro (which alas was closed when we were there - owners were on holiday) and the two local pubs - the Boughton Arms and Nag's Head - the latter is one mile (20 mins walk) with great food, freshly cooked by Karen. Further afield is the Pandy Inn (excellent food too) and the dog/family-friendly Poston Mill. Needless to say, we ate out every evening.

  • "Not unless you can order some better weather for our next holiday with you."

    In spite of the rain, we had a very relaxing and tranquil holiday which is why we went. The freedom to use the garden was great as the owners have a large variety of flowers to admire and the perfume of the roses planted near the door to the chocolate house was superb.

    Christine and Ian were very welcoming as was Monty, a gorgeous Red Setter! Christine gave us lots of useful local information, especially about a local saint, Saint Dubricius! Cottage was cosy and very well equipped. We were blessed with a week of Indian Summer and would have loved to stay on were it not for other commitments at home. We may well return to the Chocolate House!

    The owners and their dog were very welcoming and friendly. The nearest pub allowed dogs in and the food was very good. Although small, the cottage was extremely comfortable. Great location. Lovely trip to Hay on Wye. It would be really useful on your web site if you could confirm whether properties have fully dog proof gardens, no gaps or gates without netting.

Just 10 miles away is 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. Surrounded by pastureland and woodland, covered in primroses, violets, celandine and bluebells during spring, the village is also close to the Offa's Dyke and Wye Valley walks. The epitome of picturesque England, the ancient city of Hereford lies 12 miles away and dates back to the 7th Century, boasting a magnificent cathedral, the famous 'chained library', and a medieval bridge over the winding River Wye.
