This house was brilliant for us. There was more than enough room for everyone. We particularly loved the swimming pool, it was warm and the kids couldn't wait to get in there every morning!
Mrs Loughran
June 2015
The house was beautiful, and the pool made the holiday for everyone. We were a party of 24, ranging from 3 to 83yrs celebrating a 70th birthday and the house was a perfect spot to do this, it had lots of space, never felt cramped and there was always somewhere to find a bit of peace. Would book again.
Ms Hylton
July 2015
It was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped, a home with all the bells and whistles. The garden and general surroundings are stunningly beautiful. The extensive patio off the indoor pool is perfect for outdoor entertaining and a dining room that comfortably sits 24 made indoor entertaining easy.
Ms Lamb
April 2015
The house was excellent for a large gathering of friends and family where it was really useful to have lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was great and the big dining room made the event really special. The setting is beautiful and we wanted good walks which we found easily straight from the house as well as in the area of course. The swimming pool was really great, a good size, very clean and well maintained which the whole party enjoyed it. We were a very mixed group with ages from 22 months to 86 years and every one enjoyed the week. Good weather allowed us to sit on the patio, just perfect for a special birthday week.
March 2015
The swimming pool is fantastic. Everything about this house is brilliant. It is a wonderful property which is well equipped and had loads of room for everyone. I would recommend this holiday home and give it a ten out of ten rating.
Miss Bidwell
March 2015
In a wonderful location and the house was cosy, comfortable and warm. The facilities were excellent; the pool, sauna, hot tub and games room were excellent fun for all ages in our party. Can't wait to have an excuse to return.
Mrs Nile
March 2015
The house was spacious and well laid out with lovely bedrooms. The pool area was lovely, clean and welcoming. The kitchen and lounge spaces were perfect for a large group. Lovely surroundings for walking. The housekeeper was very friendly, showed us around and showed us how to work everything. A fantastic house to have a group celebration, we were there for a 50th party and everyone agrees the house was perfect. I would highly recommend!

We had a great time. This is the fifteenth year that the 16 of use have been away together in the UK and we have not found a better property. We tried to book for next year - no luck!
Mrs Marshall

Mr Stanford
October 2014
Property was very clean, tidy and warm. Cooking and dining facilities were excellent. All 18 of us loved the garden, swimming pool and one evening we enjoyed an excellent BBQ. The leader of the cleaning team could not have been more helpful and the owner recommended two excellent places to eat, especially 'Food for Thought' at Peterchurch. We spent each day out walking in the truly beautiful countryside with its unusual and distinctive churches. Do not miss Arthur's Stone, a 5,000 year old burial chamber near Dorstone.
Mrs Prestage
September 2014
We loved every aspect of our holiday. The pool area is brilliant. We will definitely be coming here again.
Mr White
October 2014
I thought that the venue was perfect for our large family weekend gathering. Both the adults and the children made the best of the more-than-adequate facilities, and the extensive gardens and the pool, with its jacuzzi and sauna, were a real bonus. We will certainly consider The Croft for a future gathering.
Miss Holdsworth
June 2014
The swimming pool was amazing, we loved going in the jacuzzi and sauna and waking up to the spectacular view of the countryside! The grounds of the house were perfect for a big BBQ in the sunshine!
Mr Rose
May 2014
What can I say, The Croft was better than I could have imagined. The party of 21 adults and one very well behaved baby could not have wished for better accommodation. The Croft was situated in the most beautiful of countryside,it was stunning. We were made very welcome by the caretaker, she showed us around the property, instructing us on all necessary appliances. All facilities; games room, reception rooms, pool, in fact everything was there for us to enjoy. For those wishing to have a holiday for a large party I would strongly recommended The Croft. Book early otherwise you will be disappointed.
Mr Smith
May 2014
It is ideal for our annual family get together. Great facilities for both adults and children (indoor swimming pool, games room, sauna and jacuzzi, lovely setting). We have been there three times now and all the family love it.
Mrs Tidd
March 2014
We had a wonderful 50th Birthday party for a range of family and friends, from baby and toddler to grandparents. The bedlinen is lovely, the dining room nice - large enough for 24 or us. Everything was spotless, we will definitely visit again. Thanks.
Mrs Westcott

Mrs Bowdler
February 2014
The accommodation was excellent, the kitchen was fully equipped to cater for a very large party and the pool was amazing - much bigger than expected! The children were fully occupied between the pool, the game room and their own lounge, leaving the adults able to fully relax and enjoy the weekend. Superb accommodation and we will be coming back!
Mr Brewer

Great Cottage. Really enjoyed all the facilities that were available at the cottage. Also lots of really nice walks. Could not fault it.
Mrs MacNamara

Ms Warboys
January 2014
We loved the way we were made to feel so comfortable welcome at The Croft. We were able to treat the house as our own which was fantastic for my celebratory 50th birthday. I had invited 20 family friends and everyone has come away relaxed and with great memories. The owner and housekeeper were fantastic; should we need to know anything they were at the end of the phone. The house is beautiful with a fantastic kitchen which made catering for so many a pleasure. The icing on the cake has to be the wonderful swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna which were all kept wonderfully clean and excellent condition and the games room kept the men occupied for hours!!
Mr Clark
October 2013
The swimming pool was fantastic. The ladies loved spending most of the day in the jacuzzi and sauna. There was plenty of room for our party. The kids all had a fantastic time.

The property took my breath away. It exceeded everyone's expectations and with 22 guests we still had plenty of room in the house. The gardens were beautiful and the swimming pool was perfect and so warm and clean. I could not find a fault with the property and had the most fantastic weekend. I cannot wait to return!
Mrs Widdowson
October 2013
This was our second visit to The Croft and it did not disappoint. This property is perfect for family gatherings, and the facility of the swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and gym, not to mention the snooker room made it so that the property never felt crowded (even though we were at maximum capacity). The views from the terrace are magnificent!
Mrs Shearer
March 2013
The swimming pool, sauna and hot tub were fantastic. Plus the fact the property slept so many friends. The cakes and flowers on arrival were most welcoming.

This property was absolutely perfect for our large family and friends celebration 2 weeks. The icing on the cake was the pool which was well used and our 2 year old granddaughter achieved swimming on her own with a little help from armbands!
Mrs Howlett
September 2012
As soon as we arrived we felt at home, the house and gardens were beautiful with magnificent views. The pool and facilities were again excellent. The flowers and cake, left by the owners, on our arrival were a wonderful touch.

The swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, gym, were totally outstanding. Plenty of furniture on the patio plus the great views over the countryside were marvellous.
Mr Parkin
July 2012
We loved the pool and used the ample living areas to good effect. Patio and outdoor areas were a boon when weather permitted. We felt an immediate affinity to the place and its surroundings. We have been meeting up with friends for a house party for the past 10 years and this was voted the best yet. We've booked again for next year!
Mrs Cartwright
April 2012
The welcome by the owners and their support throughout the week as needed and the cakes. The swimming pool and garden facilities. The accommodation was ideal for our needs as a large family get together. Nice quiet rural position but close enough to Hereford and Hay, shops etc.
Mrs Wilson
March 2012
It was all fantastic! Lovely welcome with cakes etc and I particularly liked the quick, helpful tour by the owner. We loved the pool area and spent most of the weekend in there. A beautiful place, we would love to go back!

The Croft is a stunning property, allowing large family gatherings to stay and play together in total comfort. Everyone I spoke to at Sykes was most friendly and helpful. Thank you!
Ms Oneill

The accommodation was as advertised and met our needs. The kitchen was well equipped and had a welcome pack of essentials and cakes. The owner was there to meet us and show us around the house and how things worked. She also saved us money on our groceries with her advice. We made full use of the pool and jacuzzi which was so enjoyable and well equipped for children and adults.
Miss Budd
January 2012
We booked The Croft as a surprise for our Grandparents who were celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary - they were bowled over by the place. Although there were 21 of us in total there was plenty of space and it did not feel at all crowded. The games room and pool were a particular hit with all the guests - ages 4 to 83! We would love to go back!

An amazing house that felt like home.The grounds,swimming pool etc an added bonus which meant if you didn't want to go further afield there was no need.When we could drag ourselves away from the house there were many lovely places to visit.The more energetic of our family went canoeing and walking.Us older ones settled for the easy option ---- a trip on a steam train.
December 2014
What an amazing house, from the start with Sykes who we booked it through, to Juliia the daughter of the owner and Pat, who couldn't have been more helpful! Thank you! Xx The house was beautifully decorated in a xmas style. We had a wonderful Xmas with friends, turkey and all the trimmings! The house is very well equipped, the swimming pool is a bonus. The area around is stunning, Hay and Ross on Wye, Abergevenny is a must. Would nightly recommend! Thank you again for a magical time! Tina & friends from The Northampton Volleyball Club.

I have just returned from a family holiday at The Croft. Large house, enough room for our family of 23. However, so many flies in and around the house, made it very difficult when cooking and preparing food. The 2 main windows in the kitchen did not open, we understood we were in a rural location near to a farm, however, flie screens would of helped matters. 1 shower in the en-suite did not work, broken paving slabs on the patio, no towels or bin liners in rooms and bathrooms on arrival, we also had to wash patio furniture as it was very dirty on our arrival. Swimming pool was great but, sauna had a broken seat with nails showing, this had to be fixed during our stay. Bedroom with 3 single beds was shared by 3 young girls, the window was held open by a small bin. I would recommend this house rental, but improvements need to be made.
February 2014
This really is a fabulous house, plenty of room for celebrating. Loved everything the house had to offer especially the Spa. My family and I would definately return.
March 2014
I took my family away to the Croft for my 50th birthday and it could not have been a better celebration, there were 21 of us but the house easily accommodated 24. The house was perfect and the owner popped in to see us to show us around and made us feel that it was our home for the duration. The swimming pool, Sauna, pool room and gym made such a difference especially for the time of year we were there January. Everything was clean and comfortable and I cannot recommend this house for a gathering of family & friends more, absolutely wonderful!
January 2014
We decided to spend New Year with a large group of friends....24 in total,adults and children. Staying at The Croft was ideal. Plenty of bedrooms, a swimming pool and a kitchen where all of the best parties could be held. Our short break here was incredible and we all agreed it was the best New Year to date. I would highly recommend this cottage, can't wait to return.
January 2014
This was our second stay at The Croft. It really is the most comfortable house and the facilities are second to none. For a large group it is perfect-ours was a family gathering and even though we utilised all the bedrooms,we never felt cramped. I would thoroughly recommend this property.
June 2013
Fantastic place for a large group brilliant pool area. . Great restaurants in the area

This house was perfect for our group of 5 families. Mixture of adults and under 5's all had a great time. House was nice and clean and well equipped. Pool was brilliant and nice and warm. Sufficient outdoor chairs and tables as well as indoor. Any minor issues, (which were down to us and not the owners!) were solved asap by the owners. Location was good as amenities were only a short drive away. You have to try the Ice-creams @ the petrol station - they are huge!!!
May 2013
Firstly the cakes and flowers on arrival were a lovely touch. The property is of a high standard and very spacious. We went for my 40th birthday with 6 families it was perfect for this get together. The pool was a fantastic extra for the kids. The only negative I can think of is that the pool room had no heating in so was very cold apart from this can not fault the place. The owner was so friendly and helpful. Would definitely love to go back
January 2013
Stayed at the Croft in November ,18 of us altogether,ages from 15 months to 87 years! Had a fantastic time.The house is amazing,although it is big ,it still feels homely.Great that everyone could have their own bedroom and bathroom.Dining room is great for big family dinners.Highlight though has to be the pool ,jacuzzi and sauna,used every day.Wonderful welcome too and the cakes were delicious.Would love to go again.
January 2013
I stayed here with friends and family in January 2012. I can't rave about the place enough. Every person of the 21 that stayed said it was one of the best weekends away they've ever had. The bedrooms are gorgeous, the sitting rooms cosy and the grounds fabulous. The pool, jacuzzi and sauna were amazing. Spotlessly clean and really made the holiday. The owners were extremely accommodating and even baked some cakes for our arrival. Now, if we can just find another weekend when this wonderful 0property isn't booked up, we will hopefully be returning!
December 2012
We stayed at the Croft at the beginning of September, it was to celebrate a 50th birthday, and we had age ranges from 5 months to 70. The house had ample space and accommodation for all of us, with us being a large group it was nice to find quiet places at times!! The house, grounds and pool are absolutely fantastic. The owners so welcoming and helpful. I could go on for ever, but short and sweet, if you rent this house you will not be disappointed, it met all our expectations and more, top marks. There are plenty of beautiful towns to visit in the area, and local pubs that do lovely food.

We visited in april 2012 for a week for a whole family get together, there were 22 of us from a few weeks old to 83 years old. The accomodation really suited our needs although could do with an extra shower or two. Everywhere was well equipped and clean. The pool, games room etc were the icing on the cake. (The cakes were lovely too!) We also enjoyed being able to use the garden and play equipment. It is conveniently situation for Hereford and Hay. We would go again. It is more economical to be able to go for the whole week.
June 2012
The owners were friendly and helpful. The large accommodation housed a family of 7 adults and 9 children, aged between 18 and 3. The swimming pool was fantastic and enjoyed by everyone. We had a wonderful weeks holiday at The Croft, the house was well equipped, the sitting rooms, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms were spacious..
December 2011
Excellent family accommotation and a wonderful swimming pool
February 2012
We stayed here with family while celebrating my Mum's 60th birthday. The property far exceeded our expectations. It is huge, with plenty of bedrooms and lounges to accommodate everyone. The highlight was the amazing pool, with sauna and jacuzzi. The kids loved playing in it, especially as there were lots of pool toys too. It was a nice touch for the owners to leave cake and basic provisions. We arranged an online shop but there is a local farm shop where you can get eggs and things. Would not hesitate to recommend this place and would love to visit again.
April 2012
Stayed here as part of a wedding party in March 2012. Amazing property and amenities - gorgeous pool, jacuzzi and sauna!! We stayed in the annexe which gave us our own lounge, kitchen and private space. Rooms are clean and bathrooms spacious and modern on the whole. The grounds are lovely - we had such hot weather that we ended up on the veranda for the reception drinks and this made for some lovely photographs too. We had the whole reception back at the house and the catering was done in the huge fully equipped kitchen - 2 dishwashers were very welcome!! Another fridge or capacity to chill champagne and drinks (and a bigger ice machine) would have made it even better but for a normal holiday it had everything you could ask for and more. A lovely part of the world and the views from the house were divine. Highly recommended!
June 2011
We booked this property for a family break with 6 families in total, with kids ranging from 3 years to 17. The owner advised us that the letting of this property is a recent venture however she does a fantastic job. There were homemade cakes, flowers and some basic groceries provided for us on our arrival which was an unpected bonus. The layout of the premises was perfect for our mixed family group, there were two rooms away from the main house with their own small living room and staircase which was perfect for Mum and eldest Aunty to escape the noise of the main house. The pool was the biggest success of the week, lovely size, immaculately kept with it's own changing rooms, shower and toilet. Also within the building a sauna and mini gym above. The kids loved having this to themselves for the week, there are patio doors which open out onto the patio area too. On our arrival a huge brand new trampoline with safety net was being put up which the kids made full use of. The grounds the property are in, are lovely and offer plenty of room for the kids to wander round and explore. We set the kids a treasure hunt on a few occasions and this was great entertainment for them. The games room with pool table was also a hit and used all times day and night. The property is quite remote and it's around 10 mile round trip to a fair size supermarket. However there is a local shop around a mile and half away. I would recommend getting online shop delivered as we did, Sainsburys, Tesco and Asda all deliver to this property. The views are something to mention too, spectacular. Overall we had the best family holiday I think we've had to date, the kids didn't even want to leave for the first few days. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place and would love to book again.

The house was exceptionally well equipped and the garden beautiful with amazing views. When we could drag ourselves away from the house there were some lovely places to visit not too far away.
Mrs Mee

Fab house for family and friends. Lots of nice crockery and plenty of it. The pool area s well maintained. I would definitely recommend this property.
Mrs Johnson
November 2015
The Croft was fantastic, and easily accommodated our family party of 24 (all ages) with plenty of space for everyone. Catering was easy with the size of the kitchen and storage space. Everyone loved the pool area which was kept spotlessly clean and the generous size meant that lots of the family could go in together. The owner was very approachable and always on hand for queries. We all had a wonderful time!
Mrs Edwards
December 2015
Although I would recommend it to anyone, we loved it so much we wished it could be our best kept secret to ensure availability for us. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the owner we felt at home. The Croft is in a beautiful setting and the house did not disappoint. It was well equipped with everything we could possibly need for a large family gathering. The pool house was the icing on a very scrumptious cake.
Mrs Doherty
January 2016
The space at The Croft was excellent. All of the rooms were used, we all loved the house, but the pool, hot tub and sauna made this family break a real treat. We all had a great time and want to return!
