About Antonia Cuthbert
I worked in the City until after my children were born. I bought our house in Herefordshire as a bolthole from London and to be near my family. We now have 2 children and 2 dogs and Herefordshire is my favourite county in the whole of the UK. Being able to share the cottage next door with other families who enjoy the surroundings as much as we do gives me great pleasure. My husband has recently retired enabling us to live at home for the first time in 20 years!
Antonia Cuthbert purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Antonia Cuthbert chose Hoarwithy
This village is our home and our house is next door to this cottage. We bought it because we had the opportunity and decided to do self-catering holiday lets. Herefordshire is one of the most beautiful (in my opinion) counties in England and certainly one of the least spoilt. As you will see from the views from the cottage, it is stunning countryside and while public transport is is not great that adds to the charm of the county. From the River Wye to the Black Mountains, Malvern Hills and Forest of Dean there is outstanding natural beauty and we hope visitors will enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
The peace of the countryside and watching the seasons change over the Wye Valley are very special features. In winter especially the cottage is very cosy with a very effective wood burning stove and it is a wonderful place to just hide away in for a few days.

Lovely cottage with great views.
I stayed with my husband and son at stone cottage for a long weekend. We had a wedding to attend in Brockhampton which was only about 4 miles away. The cottage was lovely, set in a rural location. Very peaceful and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The large bed in the main bedroom was so comfortable that I didn't want to get out! We had a lovely roast lunch at the local pub on the Sunday and as it was pouring with rain, went back to the cottage and lit the log burner. Perfect!!
Thank you for your kind comments, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.
Very friendly owner,comfy atmosphere,stunning views,nice local cider ,the best fishing.will be back,the silence is wonderful.
Perfect Cottage, Perfect Place
Antonia's cottage is one of the nicest vacation rentals we've stayed in. The cottage is clean, well-equipped, and tastefully designed to incorporate a "cottage" feel with all modern conveniences. (The larger-sized fridge and freezer are wonderful to have when you're self-catering for a week.) The rooms are bright and comfortably furnished. The garden catches the sun--a lovely place sit and admire the view. It was a great central location for both the historic sites we wanted to see in the area and walking. We enjoyed the Three Churches and a Bridge circular walk you can do straight from your door. (See Wye Walker D1) Hoarwithy itself is a friendly community-- do go for cake and tea at the church if it's on when you're there.
Thank you for your lovely review. It is very pleasing to have such enthusiastic guests, I enjoyed meeting you.
A beautiful peaceful cottage in a glorious setting. Well-equipped, warm & welcoming.
We originally booked for two nights but ended up staying for three as we were snowed in! It was a wonderful break. The cottage is warm and welcoming and has everything you need, a real home from home. Relaxing in front of the log burner while it snowed outside was glorious. Antonia was an excellent host, ensuring we were well looked after but giving us plenty of privacy. Due to heavy snow we couldn't venture far but enjoyed walks in the lovely countryside surrounding the cottage, and the short wander down to the New Harp Inn where we found the food to be delicious, and the landlords & locals friendly and welcoming. We loved Stone Cottage and highly recommend it.
Thank you for your generous review. I enjoyed meeting you and am glad you enjoyed your wintery stay. I found your snow angel on the lawn, very pretty!
A car is essential for this location, the nearest train station being in Hereford, 8 miles away. There is a bus service to Ross and Hereford but it is infrequent. Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff Airports are all about 1 1/2 hour's drive from the property.
Stone Cottage is situated just outside the picturesque village of Hoarwithy, within 10 mins walk from the village pub, The New Harp Inn. Ross on Wye is 5 miles south, a market town with antique shops, pubs and restaurants. Hereford is about 8 miles north with its cathedral, medieval chained library and Mappa Mundi, leisure centre and swimming pool. It too has good shops and restaurants. Hay on Wye is about 30 miles with its jazz and book festivals and antique shops.
The Wye Valley is a walker's paradise with hundreds of footpaths covering spectacular countryside. On the border with Wales, there is much historical interest with Offa's Dyke nearby and the border castles of Goodrich, Skenfrith, White and Grosmont. Tintern Abbey is within easy driving distance as are the Malvern Hills and Black Mountains. Other activities include fishing, canoeing (a great fun activity for all the family) and children's adventure parks in the Forest of Dean. The property does not come with its own fishing on the Wye, but makes ideal accommodation for those fishing the Middle Wye beats. For racing enthusiasts the courses at Hereford, Ludlow, Chepstow and Cheltenham are all within striking distance.
