Stone Cottage description

Holiday home
Stone Cottage is a delightful, stone-built, end-terrace cottage in the rural hamlet of Ledicot outside the village of Sobdon in Herefordshire. The cottage is set over three floors and can accommodate four people. There is a king-size double room on the first and second floors, one with an en-suite basin and WC and one with the option of being a twin room. The cottage also offers a family bathroom with a bath and a shower over and a ground floor basin and WC. You will find a well-equipped kitchen with a dining area, a sitting room with a woodburning stove and a garden room overlooking the garden with a dining table and chairs, plus comfy sofas.

A wonderful cottage with stunning views, a real get away.

This was a fantastic cottage to chill out in. We particularly loved the oak framed conservatory and ate our breakfast and evening meal in there every day. It was so homely that we never ate out at all. (Most unlike us to do this). The wood burning stove was also a nice feature as the weather was a bit cold during our stay. Would love to come and stay here again in the future.

The cottage was lovely and we had everything we needed.

The accommodation was very spacious and homely and very clean. We liked the location and views, especially from the back of the cottage, they were beautiful. Once we had arrived we didn't really want to go out again!

This is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, extremely well equipped, spacious, comfortable and a lovely garden with several seating areas and secure for our dog. The new oak framed garden room is a wonderful addition and the rural location is delightful with easy access to local towns and villages.

Stone Cottage was absolutely beautiful and a pleasure to return to after a days sightseeing. Friends of ours who joined us for a couple of days were equally impressed. They have holidayed in many self catering cottages and stated that Stone Cottage was the best they had ever stayed in. The owners have obviously put a great deal of thought into making their house so homely and well equipped so it is no surprise that they get many repeat bookings. We would love to go back and cannot recommend it enough.

We liked everything about the cottage and the information about things to do and places to go were helpful. Even just sitting in the beautiful garden listening to the birdsong was wonderful. We had a fantastic time and we are getting ready to plan the next holiday. We cannot praise it enough as it was a wonderful break.

The beauty of the house and gardens were really pleasing. It was astonishing value for money.
Mr Alder

Probably the finest cottage we have stayed in. Coupled with the scenery, places and buildings of interest nearby this has made for an excellent holiday.
Mr Wayne

Great cottage with a real home from home feel. The dwelling is stocked so well for any eventuality, a lot of thought has been put into the final presentation of Stone Cottage. In a great location for visiting local attractions and places like Hereford, Leominster and Ludlow.

Fantastic cottage and location - took a bit of finding being set back from the road! Well equipped, clean, and comfortable - loved it.
Mrs Dewhurst

Beautiful quiet location, ideally located for walking. Property was comfy, cosy and warm with great comfy beds. A very well equipped property. Had all solid floors on the ground floor, ideal for a holiday with my dog.

The cottage was welcoming after a long journey. Very well kept by the caretaker and the owners are clearly very thoughtful. Would recommend to all - we will be staying again!

A stunning property, superbly equipped with everything you could possibly need.
Mr Barton

Home from home is a cliche, but it certainly applies to Stone Cottage. The kitchen and bathroom are fitted to the highest standard. There is a toilet and washbasin on each floor, the range of crockery and cutlery more than sufficient and the beds are most comfortable. The whole place is spotless and welcoming and the garden is a delight, (our dog Oscar loved it). The surrounding area is surely one of the most beautiful in all England with a remarkable array of places to visit and local produce to purchase.

Very excited to stay in stone cottage as my dad grew up here with his three sisters. I lost dad last September so it was like walking in his shoes. A beautiful cottage with lovely views and pretty garden. Very well equipped. Friendly neighbours. Only compliant was after a long journey from Norfolk we were unable to get in as the wrong key had been left in the key box. Also we were told the cleaner was on holiday that week and we had to clean the bathroom before we could use it and clean the dead flys off the window sills. Everywhere else was clean. We had a lovely holiday and have booked again for next year.

Was peaceful and tranquil, no noise or light pollution. There was easy access to get out and about. The facilities were fantastic, catered for every need. The caretaker was a phone call away if you needed anything and nothing was too much trouble.

Stone Cottage exceeded our expectations. We arrived to a welcome pack which included a bottle of wine, much needed after our journey!! The cottage has everything you could need for your stay. The added bonus of the oak frame conservatory was a lovely surprise. The garden is a delight even in the midst of winter. We had temperatures of -7 so the log burner certainly got full use. Alfie enjoyed running round the garden which is well enclosed - good thing given the sheep in the neighbouring field!! We would definitely recommend this cottage for couples and families. Plenty of walks and things to do in the surrounding area. We will certainly be looking to return.

Probably the best equipped cottage I've ever stayed in, and immaculate on arrival. Rooms are unexpectedly spacious and light. The new 'oak room' is wonderful for sitting watching the sunset (and probably the sunrise too, if you get up early enough!), with lovely views of fields. If you have a dog, this place would be ideal - there's a utility area that would be perfect. Lots of cleaning materials, dog bags, all sorts of very thoughtful items. Didn't need to take anything. Feels very much in the middle of fields and farmland, but is well-situated for visits to Leominster, Ludlow, Hereford or Powys. Great for church crawling - several unique churches in the area. Plenty of pubs in the area for eating out at reasonable prices. Wifi good everywhere in the cottage (which is still unusual). Any downsides? Maybe the steep stairs, but not a problem for us. Main problem was finding the cottage in the first place - suggest you study the map more carefully than we did. Satnav reference sends you about 200yds out, and it's surprisingly hard to find the right place from there, but it's right next to the big barn that used to be black - turn in there.

Wonderful property rural herefordshire location but ideally situated for Shropshire ( Ludlow and Stokesey castle a must) and Worcestershire as well as Wales. The enclosed garden perfect for a lively dog. The cottage provided everything we could require, All we needed to get was our food. Looking forward to returning in June when we will have the opportunity to further explore the area and relax in the garden in the evening. The owners supply a comprehensive series of folders with details of local attractions, walks, dog friendly places and of course eateries as well as maps of the area. They really did think of everything! A gem of a place!

Welcome pack on arrival. Warm and very clean. Essential boot/dog room to store walking boots and clean the dog prior to admitting her into the lovely warm house. Quirky bedrooms, steep stairs. Kitchen crockery and cutlery plentiful. A large well equipped kitchen. Superbly comfortable beds. The caretaker of the property was most helpful when we had a hitch. My husband and I had a lovely stay and visited the places where we had honeymooned. 40 years ago. We were joined by two friends for part of the holiday and visited with friends who live in Hereford. Beautiful views and walks nearby.

A beautiful cottage set back from the road with a lovely private garden that is fully enclosed so safe for children and pets. Two good size bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Hayley who is the caretaker came round on request when I needed the high chair for my youngest grandson, as my family were coming for dinner her husband came round and gave the grass a quick trim and picked up the fallen apples. Easily sat 8 round the kitchen table for Sunday Lunch. As a keen cook was impressed with the well equipped kitchen. There utensils for children and even a box of things should you have pets. An easy location to visit other places we went to Ludlow, Leominster, Hereford, Ross on Wye, Croft castle to name but a few. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
