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!
