The house was excellent; well equipped clean and the owners were most welcoming. It was children and dog friendly with a large and safe garden and paddock. It is in a beautiful setting with eating facilities, five minutes walk away. All of our party agreed this is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Thanks again to the owners for a lovely holiday.

The house was lovely and spacious with plenty of space for all of us. The beds were lovely and comfortable, we all slept like logs. It is a credit to the owner for the standard she has created in her property to make her house so welcoming and comfortable to all who pass through it. She was very helpful and informative to us about where we could go and things to do. Thank you from all of us.

The Old Post House was ideal for a family holiday as all the bedrooms were of a good size and having two sitting rooms and a large kitchen/diner gave us plenty of room to be together and some time apart!

We enjoyed having access to the well-kept garden and the large rear paddock, with more than enough space for small children to run around in. The location is quiet but convenient and the house is well appointed. This is the first year it is being let and, given that, our experience was excellent.

The house was perfect for a family get together. The garden and paddock were greatly appreciated by our young nephews and our dogs. The owners were charming and extremely helpful. A great cottage in a beautiful part of the country.

The owners could not have been more helpful and we were made to feel very welcome indeed. The property was perfect for our needs (4 teenagers) and the garden and paddock were brilliant. With a week of good weather, it was used a lot for football and other games. The house is well proportioned and despite being nine, we did not feel in the least crowded. The furnishings and facilities were perfect for our needs. A beautiful home in a beautiful part of the country.

The bedrooms are all lovely and the beds so comfortable....and the towels are big and get a really luxurious feeling....We have already booked with Helena for next year...but for a week......can't wait!

The house is spacious, with large bedrooms and two separate living areas. The garden is fantastic for children, secure and loads of space to play. The owners were very helpful with recommendations for days out.

Absolutely perfect cottage for two families (4 adults with 4 children (11 - 17yrs old) and 2 dogs). We received a very warm, generous welcome from Helena and Stephen the cottage owners .The cottage was very charming and comfortable for our two families with plenty of space for everyone and all the facilities you could need inside. Outside was a fully enclosed garden which was ideal for relaxing in with plenty of tables, chairs and benches and perfect for the dogs. And then there is the paddock that the garden leads onto, absolutely fantastic space where the more energetic ones in the party could let off steam playing football and ball games and so could the dogs. Where the paddock ended the fields started with just the local sheep and occasional horse riders passing by- a very tranquil location with the cottage being set away from the main road so no passing traffic. We loved the cottage so much we didn't spend much time out and about but the village has its own cheese making and tea shop which is well worth a visit as is a walk around the common and woods. Leominster was also a very nice town with plenty of interesting shops and pleasant areas for walking particulary around the church.
