“Excellent stay in a lovely well equipped self catering barn conversion”
Reviewed November 8, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A lovely welcome on a wet afternoon from the owner who had already lit the wood burner ! Lovely!
a group of 8 of us did a mid week break and have not stayed in a better equipped place as far as cutlery/ crockery etc was concerned. Perhaps an upgrade on the electric hob would be good, but all in good working order. The barn was well situated for walking, and there was a 'boot' room with a good supply of maps and information on the local area. This is obviously a great place for families in the summer with a games room (which we did not use) . Can highly recommend it. WE ate out one night at White Haywood farm, which was excellent home cooked food and an easy drive or walk away if there in the summer.

Liked best: Wood burner and the 3 x 3 seater sofas so plenty of room for all to sit down in comfort.
Liked least: Lack of a separate downstairs toilet for those sharing a bathroom, and wet room stayed very wet...needs a mop so you can then visit toilet without getting wet feet!

“Beautiful, comfortable, peaceful and wonderful hosts”
Reviewed October 16, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Another wonderful stay at the Granary. The accommodation is so comfortable and well-equipped, it's like being at home (if only!). It's spotlessly clean, and the view from the terrace never fails to take the breath away. Ruth and Ken are the most welcoming and friendly hosts you could hope to meet, nothing's too much trouble, and such a font of local knowledge and tips on what to do in and around the area, and even a bit further afield too. Some lovely walks (the Cat's Back can be done straight from the door - or drive up to the car park as we did this time round). Hay is always worth a visit and we love the Weir Garden near Hereford (National Trust). There's so many different things to do, it's impossible to be bored, but with that view, this time we made sure we spent some time sipping wine and drinking in the beautiful view! And if you like that kind of thing, the sky on a clear night is incredible - so, so many stars! Thank you once again Ruth and Ken, we're looking forward to our return visit in the spring.

“Idyllic holiday location”
Reviewed October 14, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Our stay in the Granary Cottage at this location was excellent. We have stayed on the farm many times, but this was our first stay in the Granary. It certainly lived up to our expectations with wonderful views over the Black Mountains and direct access on to the terrace it is a most ideal setting. Ruth and Ken always make us most welcome and provide everything a guest could need. It all adds up to a luxury holiday stay.

“This place is wonderful”
Reviewed September 29, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have stayed here several times and everything about it is fantastic. A group of us often rent houses for Christmas and other special occasions and this is our favourite by far. The houses are warm and comfortable, lovely bed linen, lots of good quality kitchen equipment. The owners are charming, generous and very welcoming. Stunning views too. Altogether fabulous.

“60th Birthday Weekend”
Reviewed September 26, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Absolutely Brilliant. We went as a family and rented all three cottages over the weekend of 23rd to 26th September. The quality of the three cottages was excellent, the views stunning. At night there is very little light pollution at all so on a clear night if you lay on the trampoline and look up carefully you will eventually see satellites passing over. If extremely lucky even shooting stars, Loads for the kids to do games wise, the hosts are there for you as and when and are a wealth of information. Enjoyed it that much we have already booked the same weekend next year. Thankyou for helping create wonderful family memories for us all.
Best regards the Turnham and Hardy families.
