A gorgeous spacious and comfortable cottage, sleeping 4. Formally a cider barn where Symonds Cider originated in 1727, the cottage offers a good sized lounge/diner with a woodburner, a separate well equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, and downstairs cloakroom. Two generous bedrooms, one King and one twin that can also be a super King and upstairs recently refurbished bathroom with a separate shower and bath. Outside, the cottage enjoys a private rear courtyard garden in which to relax and enjoy some alfresco dining and has an outdoor rattan sofa set and cast iron dining set with sun brolley. Beyond is a large well maintained shared garden with year round interest. Parking for two cars is off road and right outside the cottage. The countryside is accessible from your door and is great for walks and cycling. Its a lovely quiet rural spot yet within easy travelling distance of The Marches, Mid Wales, The Midlands and the Cotswolds. There are plenty of NT properties locally too, like Croft Castle, Berrington Hall and Brockhampton and the beautiful Hampton Court Gardens and Castle are just 5 mins drive from your cottage.

Lovely Cottage, Great Location
The cottage was just as described, warm, cosy and well equipped. Smashing to get tea and scones on arrival and although it is not the time of year for gardens the surroundings are lovely, balm to the eye.
The internet is not great, but that was pointed out in the blurb, my phone worked just fine with a strong 4G connection so rather than using the wifi I just used my phone as a hotspot.
Lots of great information in the cottage about where to go, where to eat and activities. Ideally located for exploring Herefordshire and we so enjoyed our stay we intend to return at some point in the future to visit some of the things that we couldn't fit in in our few days.
Thank you for taking the time to review our cottage. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to be able to welcome you both again in the future.
Just the ticket

Gem of a Property
Very comfortable and well equipped cottage, ideally situated to explore Hereford and the surrounding countryside. We received a very warm welcome and Pat and Gill had left a delicious cream tea of scones, cream and the most delicious homemade plum jam. We will definitely recommend Symond’s Cottage to friends and we would love to stay in this lovely property again.
Perfect spot and a perfect retreat
Litmarsh Farm is the most peaceful cottage we have ever stayed in. We thought that where WE lived was quiet! Although there is another cottage and the owner's cottage, we felt completely alone. The bedrooms were spacious and beds were super comfy. Added to this, the modern bathroom had a great shower with hot water all the time.
The Bodenham area is stunning and although we didn't visit any of the local eateries, we did walk along the many public footpaths - crossing fields and along the lake. Litmarsh is also in easy reach of Hereford and a few National Trust properties - the bus to Hereford stopping very near the cottage.
A lovely place to relax and recharge the batteries.
Thank you Pat and Gill for your hospitality and ensuring the cottage was spotlessly clean for our arrival - even the cream tea with homemade plum jam - yum!
Inside the property was everything we needed.
Thank you for your great detailed review, we are glad you had a great time and enjoyed the peace and quiet as much as we do !
We are also very pleased that you liked everything in the cottage,, we do try to make it as welcoming and as comfy as we can, so it’s good to hear we are hitting the mark.
Thank you again
Pat & Gill
