“Home from home in deepest Herefordshire!”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

Despite the 'unsettled' weather that seems to have become the norm for Spring 2012, we had a great time on our first visit to Bredward Farm. We stayed for about a week, self-catering in Cider Cottage, and can certainly see why so many people rave about this place.
The cottage itself has been lovingly restored by Lorraine & Ian (the owners), and is presented to an incredibly high standard. Apart from being much cleaner than our own house(!), absolutely everything seems to be provided - a superb welcome pack of food & drink, high quality toiletries, loads of maps, books, a massive range of kitchen equipment, children's games/toys, etc. In some ways it was rather like staying in a cosy, living museum - surrounded as we were by antique furniture and lots of other interesting artefacts! Ian even gave us a freshly caught trout that went down very well - once we'd figured out what to do with it! The pony, donkey and small farm pond all provided added interest, especially the mallard with its 18 ducklings!!
Despite the weather, we enjoyed several walks, which is what obviously attracts many people to the Kington area. One walk that we can recommend involved a circular route where we walked from the cottage itself up onto Hergest Ridge. There are also several National Trust places within a short distance - all well worth visiting. However, for us at least, one of the highlights of our stay was simply wandering around some of the lovely 'black and white' villages in the area. Places like Weobley, Eardisland and Pembridge are all nearby.
Over the years, we've spent holidays in a wide variety of locations, but this experience really was exceptional and we will certainly be back again (if we can get in!).

My wife and I visited Bredward Farm over the Easter Period. We stayed in our caravan in the field for eight nights and my sister in law and her husband spent three nights in Cider Press Cottage over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend.

Even with the drought and hosepipe bans Herefordshire had managed to have rain and the field was slippery when I was towing my caravan onto it. Not having a four-wheel drive we soon got into difficulties with our front wheels slipping, Ian came to the rescue with his Land Rover and soon had us situated where we wanted to be. The field was in its usual trim and tidy condition, except for the marks left by my car. For those requiring a bit more from caravan sites, you may wish to know Lorraine and Ian have invested in an ablution block which was well on its way to completion when we were there. It comprises of a shower, two washbasins, two toilet cubicles and a vegetable preparation area. Plans are also in the pipeline to have hard standings on the field as well as a restored Shepherds Hut complete with wood burning stove for hire.

The cottage was immaculate, beautifully furnished and fully equipped down to baking trays, food processors and coffee machines. The welcome pack was exactly that, very welcoming with tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and wine. My sister and her husband were very impressed.

Bredward Farm is ideally located for the walker, this being our third visit we ventured further afield with a visit to the beautiful Elan Valley. We spent the day walking the old track bed alongside the reservoirs and even managed a visit inside one of the huge dams on an open day. Elan Valley is an ideal place for walking, cycling or just enjoying nature. Our next walk was around the lush Herefordshire countryside enjoying the wonderful views from Offa’s Dyke Path.

Visits were also made to Leominster and Ross-on-Wye, enjoying lunch in a tea room and browsing through the numerous antique shops. A taste of the local cider was had at the nearby cider making farm and can be recommended. There is still much more for us to see and do and we will be returning.

Lorraine and Ian work hard to make peoples stay at the farm as enjoyable and stress free as possible. I may be making any future stays more difficult with these recommendations as word gets around and more people visit, but the praise is warranted.

Rich, Kerry, Angela & Dave had a wonderful weekend in Cider Press Cottage and only wish
we could have stayed longer. Lorraine was very welcoming and the Breakfast was out of
this world. The Cottage is superb with everything one could wish for and more. Milk in the
fridge, biscuits on the table and all the tea & coffee you could drink. It is spotlessly clean
and there is every comfort imaginable Thank you so much Lorraine and Ian for your kind
hospitality. Sincerely hope we can come back in the near future.

This was our fourth visit to Bredward Farm. It won't be our last! We stayed in Cider Press Cottage this time. What a beautiful place Lorraine and Ian have created full of character, interesting antiques and warm and comfortable. The cottage is equipped with everything you may need (and more), set in an idyllic, rural location. Perfect for escaping the rat race. Very relaxing - just what we needed.

My wife and I stayed in Cider Press Cottage from 30th December 2011 until 2nd January 2012. This was our first time in the cottage and our second at Bredward Farm. Once again we were bowled over with the welcome from Lorraine and Ian and by the quality of the cottage. As someone who has spent a great deal of time living in hotels and bed and breakfasts I have to say none have left me so impressed as Cider Press Cottage. It is abundantly clear that Lorraine considers the cottage as an extension of her own home and guests as her visitors. It is spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and a joy to stay in. I have read a comment about the size of the bed and although not considered a giant at 5’ 11” I found the beds and bedrooms to be very comfortable. For those who have never visited before be prepared to experience a relaxing, peaceful stay in beautiful lush countryside. We have already booked our next stay.

We hate to share Bredward Farm because its so good !! Cider Press cottage is immaculate, beautifully furnished and equipped. Be prepared to put on at least 2lbs a day with Lorraines lovely meals. All this in an idyllic setting. Lorraine and Ian should be very proud of what they have achieved. Can't wait to go back early next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent
