Lovely, modernly refurbished, clean house. Ideal for our party with young children. A good kitchen/dinner/lounge for socialising. Close to Hereford. Mobile phone signal poor at the cottage. Enjoyed the comfy beds and games room.

Lovely place very very clean, we all loved it at Bushmills. We will definitely be booking again soon. The games room is very good and all of the beds are really comfortable. The Kitchen is new and modern and the seating area outside has lovely views.

Arrived at this super barn conversion and we were surprised at how homely and welcoming it was considering its size,there was plenty of room for every one and you did not feel like you were squashed in like a few of the places we have visited. the property had everything you could need ,plenty of crockery and kitchen utensils. the beds were of a high quality and extremely comfortable. The icing on the cake was the games room which every generation of our family enjoyed. This in my opinion is a great place for a family to relax and the cut flowers, chocolates, and wine left for us say to me that the owner really consider there guests every need. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

A very quiet house in a peaceful location. Very spacious and flexible accommodation. Very comfortable beds. Very roomy and comfortable parking. The owners were discreet, friendly, and attentive on the one occasion they were needed. We loved the location, its rural feel and the fact that genuine, country activities were going on around us. We'd certainly be happy to return.

The accommodation was superb for use by an extended family with an ideal layout of bedrooms and bathrooms, and the huge open plan living/dining area. The games room was a wonderful facility used by the children and adults alike. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. The gorgeous views from the property together with it's proximity to Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Ross and Montgomery made for a wonderful base from which to explore the local area. We briefly met the owners who were friendly and helpful. Altogether a wonderful stay in a beautiful house. We were all sorry to leave!

Mr Preston
July 2014
Facilities are first rate; very comfortable and nicely finished. The lovely setting with fantastic views and wonderful weather certainly helped us have a terrific week. The Games room was a welcome distraction for our teenage kids and the owner could not be more helpful - the time taken to put together a file with every kind of leaflet/brochure for all activities and villages of interest was a wonderful thought.

I loved every second of it, if you want to get away for a weekend Bushmill is the one to book. Everything was so clean and tidy and even though it was cold outside but when we got in it was so nice and warm as the owner had left the heating on for us. I would definitely go back and I would recommended to everyone.
Mrs Sissons
November 2013
The property was welcoming and warm. Great location, plenty of walking country and from the cottage too, Hay on Wye, Abergavenney, Hereford; all brilliant for a trip. Just a fantastic place to spend a week with extended family.
Mrs Baker
October 2013
A beautiful barn conversion in a beautiful location. Lots of crockery and cutlery, so that the dishwasher did not need to be on all the time. We had booked it so that we had a lovely place for our daughter to leave for her wedding, and it did not disappoint us.
Mrs Jones

A beautifully decorated, furnished and equipped house. We stayed there to be within easy distance of Hay-on-Wye, which was about 30 minutes drive much of which was along little used single track roads.

We loved the cottage, it was comfy and cosy and the little touches on arrival really made it feel homely. There was plenty of crockery which made our holiday a lot easier when it came to cooking and dining in. The showers are fantastic and the heating and wood burner lovely after a chilly day out.
Mrs Warwick
September 2012
We had a really lovely break at Bushmills. Seven adults and one baby plenty of room. A bathroom per couple and the bath up stairs was like a swimming pool for my granddaughter.
Mr Tompkin
October 2011
The property was excellent - lovely, peaceful location. It had plenty of space and the open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area was ideal for keeping an eye on our young children whilst preparing meals. Although we went in autumn I can imagine the BBQ seating area and games room would be fantastic during the summer months!
Mr White
November 2011
It was an excellent cottage and everyone loved how comfortable the beds were. The log fire was great, the property was very clean and the games room was excellent. We could not have been any happier with Bushmills.
Mrs Parker

An excellent property for a family get together, particularly the 4 bathrooms. Good to have the playroom and loads of crockery/cutlery. A lovely location.
Mrs Irons
November 2011
We enjoyed the attractive Herefordshire countryside and historic places such as Hereford and Ross. There was no lack of interesting places to visit.
Mr Birchwhite
September 2011
We found the location to be stunning and the finish of the property to be outstanding. A very well equipped barn conversion which we will return to in the future. The barn is super for families given the number of rooms and the games area for children.
June 2013
We were a group of 6 adults, 5 children and a baby, this house suited us perfectly. It was big enough that we weren't on top of each other all the time but we still felt all together. Beautiful quality finishes and fittings, I had best shower I've ever had!! Lovely peaceful countryside surrounds the house, it's quite a way to the nearest anything and a bit of a maze of roads but that only adds to the relaxing holiday experience. I can't recommend this house enough, we will definitely be back for a visit!
December 2013
wonderful property and location. Excellent service and reception including the prompt postal return of an item that we accidentally left behind. many thanks to the owners.
January 2014
A beautiful conversion in a very peaceful location. Attention to detail very high, the children especial liked the toys, dressing up clothes and games room. We had used it as a base from which our daughter was married and everyone loved it.
May 2012
A first class holiday cottage geared towards families. Absolutely spotless and with everything we needed for our weeks stay last Christmas. We were made to feel very welcome and there was a christmas tree in the lounge with a small hamper of goodies and a puzzle each for our two grandchildren. The games room was an added bonus and was enjoyed by all, with a table tennis knockout competition throughout the week. The location had lovely views & was quiet with only a handful of properties in the small village, a car is necessary as there are no shops close by. The twin bedroom with a tv & shower room down stairs was great for my elderly father, who couldn't climb the stairs. All in all a fantastic holiday cottage.
July 2012
Bushmills is a very cosy well equipped property with amazing views across the valley.The games room was a great hit with our children and us.The local area is beautiful with many fantastic gardens( Abbey Dore Court) castles and tearooms. Great fish and chips from Ewyas Harold village
