    Everything that you could possibly want was supplied. The cows in the fields were very friendly and the views were wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Hertfordshire.

    The cottage was lovely and clean and we were there for two weeks and the cottage was cleaned in the middle weekend. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a good holiday. A very definitely 5 star.

  • "The hosts are very nice people."

    The property is very spacious and cool ( we stayed during the first hot month of June '23) Parking is also very good and the location was perfect for our requirements. The road is busy at times, but the property is set well back and the noise was very acceptable. There is a railway line around 3/4 mile away (not at all intrusive) which I found great as I am a railway enthusiast. There is a large kitchen with very good facilities, the bathroom only had a (large ) shower (I always prefer a shower) so some may feel restricted. The Water is soft water (certainly softer than Cambridgeshire), and a pleasure to wash with. A very nice place to stay!!

  • "A lovely place to stay,the views were amazing and having the cows outside the window (the other side of the hedge so don't panic)was incredible."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our week. Jan the host very welcoming. The only little problem is the water pressure in the shower is low so definitely not a power shower. We also bought hand soap for the bathroom when there is normally some supplied but having met Jan we really think that was an oversight as the welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits was very plentiful. We will be back again if Jan and the livestock will have us. Thank you it really was very relaxing...

    Super quiet amidst beautiful countryside. The bungalow was well equipped and immaculate, lovely big kitchen comfy beds sunny patio out the back too. Having a washing machine so we could take home clean clothes instead of piles of washing was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone wanting a quiet holiday away from the stresses of life.

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    The owner was really welcoming and had left a nice welcome pack. The bungalow was peaceful and very comfortable. For a short break we didn't miss having wifi but because our EE smart phone also did not have a signal, we will find out what network does have signal in the area and get a different simm card to run our phones should we book a longer stay. There was a great farm shop just 2 miles away. We enjoyed trips to Leominster and Ludlow, both 6 miles away. The location and setting are first class. We will recommend it to friends and we hope to come back.

    The cottage was perfectly suited for our needs, as I had my 5yr old son and 75yr old friend with me. The property was super clean, very well fitted out and warm upon our arrival - a home away from home. It's location is perfect for exploring a plethora of castles in the area, amongst other touristy outings.

  • "The accomodation was not furnished with plates cutlery etc that was so clearly ‘old’ that you felt like boxing it up and depositing in a skip somewhere!"

    The sheets and towels were good quality as well and it was lovely not to be able to see through them! This house was clean, well placed for all we wanted to see and we would recommend to anyone wanting a little more for their money than a view! All up, we would recommend and return ourselves when next in England. Well done owners Meadow Lea!!

    The dining room has a 6'x4' Table with chairs as well as two armchairs. A well looked-after bungalow with good quality fittings and equipment. Marvellous views from the sitting room, dining room and main bedroom. Extremely good value for money. The heating is now all gas so no fuel-oil smell. Difficult to find any faults. Some dusty corners. It would have been usful to have hooks for dressing gown in the bathroom and bedroom.
