Holiday home
Peaceful Cottage is a character cottage in a rural setting in Lulham near the village of Madley, near Hereford in the Wye Valley. The cottage has two double rooms and a single room, a family bathroom, downstairs cloakroom, well-equipped kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburning stove. Outside is off road parking for three cars and a garden with patio and furniture. Peaceful Cottage makes a superb base for enjoying walking and cycling in the area, including a farm walk to visit the owner's Pedigree Hereford cattle and purchase fresh eggs, and also to enjoy Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, the Black Mountains or the Brecon Beacons.

Madley is a small Herefordshire village in the Wye Valley, near the Golden Valley. Madley has its own moat, as well as two village pubs.

Close too are the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons and the Forest of Dean.

The location was a great escape, peaceful and a very pleasant backdrop with the potato fields to the rear and a very useful adjacent path for dog walking. The garden was perfect for our dog and great for children also plus having outside chairs and table was put to good use. We really liked the cosiness of the property and the neighbours were very pleasant and helpful and you could enjoy hearing the birds, sheep and seeing the cows in the old orchard (adjacent to the two cottages) - it was a real escape for us and great access to beautiful spots such as Symonds Yat and Hay-on-Wye.

The cottage was indeed peaceful with the exception of rather loud traffic. The cottage owner was lovely and very welcoming. It started to feel like home very quickly.

The location of property was good for the area that we wanted to see. Many places to see, lots to do. Would love to go back to this area. The cottage is in a scenic and slightly remote area. We met the owner who was absolutely lovely, made us very welcome, gave us plenty of information on what to see and do.

A very nice looking house and surroundings. A very friendly landlady and nice neighbours.

Peaceful Cottage is a lovely place to stay. We were here for a week with two children aged 3 and 5. They had a great time. The garden is large and safe as it's completely fenced in. There's a climbing frame and slide and the cat from next door kept the kids very happy. Beautiful orchard in the adjacent field for a short stroll. Very warm central heating and there's a log burning stove also. Thoroughly recommended.

THE cottage is set in a beautiful rural area with a large, secure garden. The cleanliness of the cottage was not up to the standard we expect from a sykes cottage. The wardrobe and chest of drawers in the main bedroom are not fit for purpose. A MAJOR problem with flies and ants.G

We are three family members who booked a five day holiday at Peaceful cottage. Unfortunately as we arrived we were greeted by the very charming owner who informed us that the previous occupants had failed to tell them they had experienced a leak from the upstairs bathroom into the downstairs toilet . Having no time to carry out any repairs we could do nothing other than close it off, still usable but not nice to look at or smell. I had booked it for the downstairs toilet as one of our party had some mobility problems so it was a bit of a disappointment but we lived with it. Peaceful cottage is in a rural location around 4 miles from the centre of Hereford and the owners have tried to create a rustic welcoming feel to the cottage, however we did feel some of the furniture lacked comfort as a result. Bedding and the bedrooms were clean and well presented, however the oven in the kitchen needed a deep clean as every time we tried to use it there was smoke billowing everywhere setting off the smoke alarm.And on closer inspection think the cleaner may have missed it. Nice pleasant outside space very green and safe for children , but again the pebbled patio needed weeding badly, it was just those little touches that make the difference. That said we had a lovely holiday, we thought the cottage was reasonably priced and was excellent value for money, the peaceful setting left us feeling relaxed and refreshed and I'd certainly use the cottage again if I was holidaying in the area. Tip You definately need a car .
