We tried different routes to get to Pear Tree Farm and having visited in different times of the year allows us to see the seasonal changes in surrounding areas, and it is simply beautiful, so allow yourself time to ponder, pause and enjoy the experiences.

There are plenty places of interests to suit different tastes. Jill and Steve are always helpful in sharing with us the latest news and other visitors' feedback. It depends on how far you would like to travel - by foot or by car. We like to visit Hay-on-Wye which is a famous second-hand books town and it has many other interesting shops to browse. Ross-on-Wye - we discovered another gem and definitely would go back to explore further.

Pear Tree Farm is not just another standard B&B, it is different and you really need to be there yourself to feel the difference. Jill and Steve offers an informal atmosphere yet provide a very high quality of services especially the food and drinks. We have always enjoyed the high quality of food and drinks. This makes it so different from any hotel or B&B we have stayed before where they tend to be formal and impersonal.

We do not have any tea/coffee making facility in our room, but we are always well looked after by Jill and Steve with plenty nice tea in the morning when we get up; tea and homemade cakes in the afternoon; after dinner tea/coffee and chocolates (if you still have room after the gourmet meals).

While we enjoy trying out new restaurants in local areas, we always look forward to tasting Jill's creative cooking and Steve's fantastic baking, hence we always book the dinner for Friday and Saturday. They are definitely worth to try and to us they are simply a must and a treat!

We had the most fantastic long weekend in February away from the hustle & bustle of London, from the moment we walked in we were greeted with home baking (absolutely delicious!) and a very warm welcome. The beautiful farmhouse displays interesting family history of both Jill & Steve and a comfortable luxurious interior.
Surrounding villages are magical and we fully indulged in Jill & Steve's knowledge of the local areas and history surrounding them.
Breakfast...out of this world, locally sourced beautiful cooking!
This is the ultimate B&B experience topped off with the most amazing hosts - we are planning our next visit and would love to take advantage of the 'House party' experience!
Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home!

pear tree farm is perfection. steve and jill welcome you into their home and you feel instantly as if it were your own; only full of fine food, champagne cocktails, afternoon tea and cake, and peace. it seems to be run by magic as you are never aware of the business of a b&b going on around you, and yet it must be because a tray of tea and coffee appears outside the bedroom every morning and the most sumptuous local aga cooked breakfast on the table shortly afterwards. (not to mention dinner if you opt for it; be inspired, be spoiled, be full!)

steve bakes his own breads on the aga, and they are fabulous - what bread should be. his cider and perry (made from the apple and pear trees on the farm) are special too.

i've stayed here many times - coming just with my partner for a break or the entire family for parties. it's a little piece of heaven in this world and if you don't go, your life won't be complete.

Steve and Jill are the perfect welcoming hosts without being OTT. The rooms are spacious and every detail thought through, the location and views beautiful; and then they lay on champagne cocktails laced with their own elderflower cordial before the wonderful supper with food largely home made and locally sourced. This is a great base for walking in the border country, some of the best in Britain. If you still have room for breakfast you won't regret it.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pear Tree Farm. Its informal atmosphere helps us to relax and really feel 'at home'. Excellent hospitality from Jill, Steve, and their four-legged companions - Mol, Meg and Freddie are so friendly and easy going - they are just so pleased to see us. We like our bedroom ver much especially - the interesting barn door, spacious bathroom, and most importantly, the peace and quiet to ensure a good night sleep. It is a great delight to enjoy the afternoon tea and cake prepared by Jill and Steve, so much so that we make sure we will be back in time to enjoy this treat. The quality of breakfast is fantastic and you would not need any lunch! Their delicious cocktail and dinners are so good that it is a highlight for our stay. There are interesting walks in the local areas. We are so pleased to discover this wonderful gem and have no hesitation to sing their praises.

We have just enjoyed 4 nights staying with Steve and Jill at Pear Tree Farm, to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary on 28th April 2010. We have never been to Herefordshire before, and were impressed by its beauty on the way to Wales in 2008. We googled for small luxury farmhouses, and were impressed by the reviews on trip advisor of Pear Tree Farm. It certainly lived up to our expectations!

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted so warmly, and nothing was too much trouble! We stayed in the Cider House which has its own kitchen and lounge area and is on a ground floor level, this suited us well for the length of time we were staying, and we were able to use the fridge for our delicatessen goodies from Deli on the Square in Ludlow, which we enjoyed on one of the evenings we were there. The Cider House had all mod cons - and we were particularly impressed with its underfloor heating in the bathroom, and we had a lovely array of toiletries to enjoy. It was a wonderfully comfortable room. I did look at the other rooms whilst I was there and they were all beautiful.

The house is beautiful and Jill and Steve say in their welcoming literature that 'their house is our house' and this is so true. We were the only ones staying there at this time, and were certainly pampered and made to feel very special!

We enjoyed tea and homemade cake on arrival - and each afternoon thereafter! Infact we found ourselves looking forward to returning to Pear Tree Farm each afternoon for this decadent pleasure! We arrived in beautiful sunshine so were able to take tea on the lawn, and relax on the garden swing - there are plenty of places to sit within the grounds, and I particularly enjoyed the early morning sunshine, sat on a bench outside the tree house with Mol ( one of the lovely collie dogs) for company!

Breakfast is a delight, with homemade jams, freshly squeezed juices, Steves wonderful home-made bread, fruits and whatever you choose for your 'main breakfast', we particularly enjoyed the kedgeree and the devilled kidneys!!

You have to try Steves home-made cider! Its wonderful - particularly sitting in the lounge by a roaring log fire, with a good book!

Our highlight was our Anniversary dinner! We were provided with our own personalised menu and enjoyed cocktails and canapes in the lounge with a sumptious dinner with local produce in the dining room, including Steves home-made bread! It was a good excuse to get dressed up! We certainly would recommend dining at Pear Tree Farm - it is a must! Jill is a wonderful cook!

The house is so interesting with lots of memorabillia and good books, you could just stay at Pear Tree Farm and not go anywhere and feel you have had a relaxing break, and without question - wonderful food!!

We loved Herefordshire - particularly Ludlow with its fine array of exquisite shops and delicatessens. We enjoyed lovely sandwiches with home-made bread and tea in the Castle Tearooms with a good ambiance. We also can recommend Berrington Hall, Stocktonbury Gardens and an attempt at the Wigmore Loop! ( unfortunately we got rained on - but it was a good excuse to go back to the house and enjoy Steves cider!!)

We ventured into Wigmore on our first evening ( about a 5 minute walk) and sampled both the pubs and had a meal which was fine. We also enjoyed dining at the Jolly Frog at Leintwardine ( 10 minute drive away) - they do a wonderful seafood platter on a Friday evening, which looked marvellous. There are wonderful views from the Jolly Frog - and it would be lovely to sit outside there on a warm summers day.

All in all, we had a wonderful time at Pear Tree Farm and in Herefordshire, we feel thoroughly spoilt and relaxed,and would love to go back. It is worth every penny we paid to stay there! Steve and Jill deserve to do well, they are such fantastic hosts! If you enjoy good food, want peace and quiet, and fantastic hospitality you can not go far wrong than staying with Steve, Jill, Mol, Meg ( collies) and Freddie (cat) at Pear Tree Farm

We stayed with Gill and Steve for a couple of nights to celebrate our anniversary.

They couldn't have been more welcoming it's like visiting old friends, so much so that it would be easy to forget you're in a B&B and leave without paying. The room was first rate and the food is some of the best we've ever had. (We don't say that lightly as we're both foodies.) Steve's pear bread was particularly good.

It's also nice to have access to a good collection of books, music and a friendly cat whilst away.

We can't wait to return and recommend a stay without hesitation.
