Immaculate accommodation. Definitely 5*

  • 5 of 5

This is absolutely beautiful accommodation with every little detail thought about. The whole place is spotless. The linen smells absolutely gorgeous (I meant to ask Kate what she’s uses as it’s stunning) the welcome tea /coffee tray and cake was a lovely touch and the cake was delicious, so moist and full of flavour, Kate is obviously a very good baker. We had a truly peaceful stay. The birds, squirrels and rabbits in the garden are a joy. Friday we walked to the Farmers Arms and bought some apples from an honesty box on the way back. We walked the 2 miles or so down to Ledbury and back on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the day. (We had lunch at The Prince of Wales on Church Lane and it was excellent in both value and taste) . The basement is a top notch accommodation and we had a really great stay. Kate greeted us when we arrived then left us in peace saying any problems just knock. If we were going back to the area we would most definitely go back and have no hesitation recommending this accommodation. Future places to stay the bar has been set.....and it’s very high. Thank you Kate.

Comfortable private apartment down a country lane.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kate's basement was excellent. We wanted to stay in the country but close to amenities (only 3Km to Ledbury) .There were birds and squirrels on the lawn outside the window! The kitchen was well equipped so we didn't need to eat out. The washing machine was a boon for travellers.The wi-fi worked well.All our needs were met!

very clean and well maintained.

Quiet and peaceful. Kate is a lovely host.The only suggestion would be to provide some oven gloves, and more coasters.

We would highly recommend the basement for a great getaway in the english countryside.

The owner was excellent about telling us all the local amenities, including where the village pub was, A wekcoming piece of excellent sponge cake was a nice touch and showed attention to detail.

Modern, comfy, spotless and homemade cake! We had a wonderful rest watching the birds and squirrels....we even ventured out for some lovely walks...the rain wouldn't stop us! Perfect for a weekend or a week, loads of storage space, very private. Ideal in every way.
