  • "This cottage is a jewel in terms of the lovely period features it contains, from wooden beams to the vaulted ceiling in the huge main bedroom."

    We absolutely loved staying in this property in the pretty village of Weobley with its amenities close by. If there was one tiny improvement in the cottage it would be finding a space for non- fridge foodstuffs in a cupboard somewhere, but this is very minor consideration given all this property has to offer. This is a really lovely cottage and we would highly recommend it.

  • "A lovely place to stay, steeped in history and was a great experience."

    The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need for your stay. The owners personal touches such as welcome basket with biscuits and jams etc were very well received. The on street parking was not an issue as we parked virtually outside the accommodation or a couple of doors down and there was no restrictions. The centre of Hereford and lots of attractions are within a 30 minute drive and it was lovely to stay in such a pretty village. I would definitely recommend and would be happy to stay again!!

  • "An old property which would benefit from a little more comfort in the living areas."

    The furnishings were very dark which made it feel oppressive and an uncomfortable leather sofa However adequate for us as we we’re out most days

  • "This is a lovely black and white timbered grade II listed property."

    It was really nice to borrow it for a week, and we felt slightly smug we were staying there, as people were taking photos of its outside. Being grade II listed its facilities are slightly constrained so there are some minor inconveniences. But the character more than makes up for them. The main bedroom is lovely with fantastic trusses, airy and very big. There is no shower as they can't attach one to the walls. It has a very deep bath which my wife found a bit difficult to get out of, she has bad knees and levering herself out was a problem, so we bought a folding step from the Morrisons in Leominster and put that on the plastic bath mat inside the bath. The kitchen is small but very well equipped, The fridge, microwave and washer dryer are located at the end of the hallway in a small room/cupboard down and back up a step, it makes you plan ahead with what you need. The fridge has an ice box so you can keep a small amount of frozen food but the village has places to get supplies so this is not a problem. There was a lovely welcome pack. It is located in the centre of Weobley which is a bustling and lively village. The butchers was brilliant, there are places to eat and buy take-aways, fresh food and really close by a village shop, which closes at 19:00. So there is some noise of people coming and going and deliveries which once we realised what it was we were able to tune it out. There was plenty of information on what to do in the area and really great walking maps. Deborah was a great host, available if we needed her, which we didn't, and we really enjoyed our time there

  • "The cottage was lovely, situated in the beautiful village of Weobley, with lots of eateries & a well stocked store."

    Weobley is perfectly situated for visiting Herefordshire. The cottage was spotlessly clean & fitted out with all that we needed. Deborah was a very thoughtful host & easily contactable, she had thought of everything including lots of little treats for us. Plenty of parking on the road outside the cottage. We would stay there again.

  • "The house was beautiful and set in a lovely village."

    However, there is a food store a couple of doors down and the noise from the delivery vehicles from 6am daily spoilt the stay somewhat. There was banging and clashing and the men speaking very loudly during delivery with no consideration for others still sleeping. Thank goodness there were no children in the group. I'm afraid that because of this I would not stay again.

  • "We’ve stayed in many houses and flats over the years and this was the best of all."

    Magically characterful, luxuriously comfortable and all the appliances one could wish for. It’s also a terrific location in the village square of Weobley - a very picturesque setting - in a gorgeous part of the country. We have already booked to come back and we will be telling any of our friends who are looking for somewhere nice to go about it. Thank you very much Deborah for looking after us so well.

  • "This cottage is stunning."

    Outside, it is one of the most charming frontages in a village noted for its sixteenth-century timber-frame buildings. Inside, it combines a fantastic Tudor 'feel' (the oak-beamed bedroom is spectacular) with real comfort and modern facilities. Weobley is a great centre for exploring the 'black and white trail' of North Herefordshire, some beautiful old churches and wonderful countryside.

    The owner has taken all steps to make this a memorable stay. The village is very nice much busier then expected. I would highly recommend.

  • "The Queens Truss was an excellent old but modernised building to suit the present day, some of the furniture was antique but very expensive to buy, the bedroom was the largest we have ever slept in, including the bed and the thickest mattress I have ever seen, very very comfortable, I took lots of photos of the beautiful ceiling to show my friends."

  • "It was easy to book this fascinating and very old building, which has been sympathetically restored and modernised."

    It is well equipped, clean and comfortable. It’s central location was convenient for shops, bus stop and walks, including the Heritage Trail. Parking outside was easy, and the view of many black and white houses from the window was lovely. Lots of places to go in the area but pleasant just to sit and enjoy the property. We were sad to leave.

  • "The property was very tastefully decorated and furnished and the main bed was very comfortable."

    The historic nature of the cottage added to it's charm, as did the swallows nesting in the eaves. The location was delightful; an interesting village with lots of walks and a handy shop. We had no trouble parking. The area was ideal for gentle cycling and so we made good use of the ordinance survey map and other leaflets Most of the kitchen equipment worked well except the grill. The property would benefit from a coffee pod machine.

  • "Lovely cottage with plenty of room for our party of 4 parking is on the road outside and our car was hit by delivery lorry to the shop next door not a problem with the cottage but it may be that care should be taken when parking ."

    The only thing we would have liked is a walk in shower as my wife is slightly disabled and could not climb into the very tall freestanding bath other than that we had a great time in a pretty village.
