“Lovely relaxed weekend”

We stayed here for a weekend with a large group of friends for a University reunion, the group mainly included couples in their mid thirties and children aged 6 months-5 years. The cottages (two attached properties linked through a huge communal dining room), were perfect for this. It helped that the weather was very warm, we had barbecues (one made of an old oil drum is provided but we took a gas one with us) and took lots of garden games/paddling pool etc which was great, and the garden surrounding the property was largely child friendly and flat especially to the rear - though there is a drop off a crumbling wall from the lawn area to the side which could be made safer as a child had a tumble. There are a number of picnic tables which we moved about to suit our needs.

The cottages are quite isolated - good for noisy children, but it is a fair drive on a bumpy farm track back to civilisation, the only other property anywhere near is the farm itself, which lead to a successful tractor hunt! Otherwise it's just fields as far as the eye can see. A few of our party went for a walk around the 'nearby' town of Bromyard but mainly we stayed at the cottages for the weekend. Taking food with you is a must really.

Facilities wise, there was plenty of space, with two separate (but joined) cottages you have two living rooms, two kitchens, numerous bathrooms etc, all the rooms were clean and tidy, though our bedroom window wouldn't open and it was pretty hot. There is also a detached games room which the children explored a number of times, this would have been good had it been raining, our children were a bit young to actually play pool, table football etc but older children would enjoy.

The owner/landlady was very amenable and let us stay until the afternoon on the Sunday as they didn't have anyone else coming in so didn't need to clean; this was very much appreciated and meant some of us could stay to watch the Wimbledon final. The floor plan available on the website is very useful, we were able to at least preliminarily allocate rooms based on this, so we knew whether we needed any travel cots, blow up beds etc.

In short, as long as you realise just how out of the way these cottages are (and don't mind) they are absolutely perfect for a large group gathering.
