Reviewed October 31, 2013

My husband and I chose Lea House because of its locality but it proved to be far more than convenient. We could not have asked for more. Caroline had thought of everything just to make our stay that little bit more special e.g. biscuits with our tea/coffee making facilities in the room, hair dryer, cotton buds, face cloths etc. We would have given five stars but the shower was not particularly efficient, although what you should expect from a beautiful old house. Very tasty breakfast made with local produce. Should have been £39 per head (£78) for the Hayloft (2013 prices) but we were charged £88. Despite this we will be back.

Room Tip: We treated ourselves to The Hayloft.

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to give me a review and for pointing out that the shower was not great, thanks for the tip, I hadn't realised. As it happens that bathroom is being enlarged and upgraded this winter so I hope it has not put you off returning.
Regarding the pricing - the room is indeed £78 per night this year but for a one-night stay there is an additional £5 per head surcharge which is clearly stated. You must not have spotted that but, because you booked through Booking.com, the price was fixed when you booked anyway. But I am sorry if there was any misunderstanding.
I hope your son is getting on well at college and that you will be back to see him soon.

The house is gorgeous with carefully selected furnishings. This accommodation is perfectly located to enjoy the Wye Valley and Goodrich Castle. Try the homemade bread and marmalade and the rest of the local produce for breakfast. Caroline made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed a comfortable night in a very pleasant place. We highly recommend it.

Many thanks. It is great that Goodrich Castle is so close by. Nearly all my guests visit it and all come back saying how great it is, but so little known.

A warm welcome and a comfortable stay in this beautiful old house. Caroline is full of useful tips on what to see and where to eat etc., invaluable advice. The room and food were first class.
Excellent location to explore the whole Wye valley, Forest of Dean and beyond, with the attractive town of Ross only 10 minutes away.
There is a lot more to see and do in this area than at first it seems.
Plenty of historical sites and outdoors-type activities. Loads of walking along the river or in the forest.
An abundance of good restaurants, bistros, pubs, etc to suit all tastes.

How lucky I am that the Rugby League World Cup brought you in my direction to do a bit of exploring. So glad you were impressed and hope you come back soon to see some more.

This is a very attractive old building conveniently located on the A40 with easy access to a myriad of paces to see and things to do in the beautiful county of Herefordshire.

The accommodation and the food were excellent. The room we stayed in was more like a bedroom in someone's house rather than the traditional soulless B&B room. Tastefully decorated, with a very large comfy bed, TV, tea/coffee making facilities and en-suite bathroom with shower. The breakfast menu offers a wide selection that caters for all tastes and the food itself is well presented well cooked with good quality ingredients used. We also had dinner in one evening and were not disappointed - again the quality, presentation and taste were superb. Caroline is an excellent host who makes her guests very welcome.

We travel widely both in the UK and abroad and Lea House is high up on my list of places to be recommended.

We have stayed a number of times at Lea House with our dogs and always love the warm welcome and excellent hospitality that we receive from Caroline, Jelly and the cats! With excellent home cooked breakfasts and superb walks on the door step it is a great base for exploring the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. Definitely a B&B to recommend.

My wife and I stayed at Lea House for 2 nights from 13 September 2013. Caroline had kindly arranged for us to be met at the property at 12 noon by one of her neighbours as she was out and this meant that we could enjoy a lovely afternoon in Ross-on-Wye where we had a guided 2 hour walk with a local lady who was very interesting. The breakfasts were excellent and, as has been said in other reviews, Caroline was extremely helpful in suggesting things to do and we had a most enjoyable Saturday visiting Goodrich Castle and Tintern Abbey followed by a walk in the Forest of Dean. This was our first visit to the area and it is certainly beautiful. We can highly recommend Lea House as a place to stay to anyone visiting the Wye Valley or the Forest of Dean.

Room Tip: We stayed in an ensuite room called the hayloft which was large and airy with nice views of the gard...

What lovely guests to come home to from my week in Provence! I am only so sorry that I couldn't bring the hot French sunshine with me and you had to leave earlier than you wanted, to get home before the predicted storms! We will try to make sure it is sunny for your next visit.
