Character Grade II cottage, stylish self catering in the heart of Herefordshire
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

A great place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

A spotless, well-maintained cottage, decorated with taste. Quite a few places to visit around without driving for hours (walks, castles, gardens, typical villages). The owners are charming and very discrete but also very reactive (there was a growing wasp nest that we signaled to them. The problem was solved 2 hours later ! How efficient !)

It was a pleasure to stay at the Founders' cottage.
