Excellent! Lovely property, everything you need, plus wonderful owners

5 of 5
Amanda and Derek have done a brilliant job converting the property. It's very comfortable and has everything you'll need - and if there is something specific that's not there they'll try their best to get it. They are so welcoming and helpful, a great couple. We loved the private garden and the double wash basins were a real luxury!! Very peaceful, beautiful area. We enjoyed visiting towns like Ledbury and Ludlow and stunning Symonds Yat. Never made it to Malvern, maybe next time. We left feeling really relaxed after 5 very enjoyable days. Thank you Amanda and Derek.
