Peter and his family could not have been more welcoming to me. My room was very clean, and well decorated. The bed very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless with a powerful, warm shower, and the sitting area had everything for an enjoyable stay. Breakfast was delicious and kept you going until supper. I don't believe there is a better place...

Thank you for your kind words. We are actively looking at ways to take card payments that don't cost so much that we have to increase our prices, but so far we haven't found a suitable solution. It might be that bank transfers will solve the problem anyway-they seem to be a good alternative at the moment and we prefer...

Stayed here for 3 nights over bank holiday weekend due to friends wedding at nearby venue.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review-it helps keep us on track and provides reassurance to future visitors that what we offer is what people want-although Barbara has, so far, been able to resist my very interesting talks about what's happening in the garden-it's only a matter of time!

Perfect bed and breakfast with amazing owls in the garden! Amazing breakfast, very well equipped and comfortable too! Lovely owners, nothing was an issue even when I didn't feel very well! Great for families too, and we enjoyed the International Birds of Prey Centre.

This is how a B&B should be. The reception was welcoming, the rooms are very comfortable with excellent facilities. Breakfast was very welcome after a long night, was locally sourced and incredibly tasty. However, what made this for us were the owners, incredibly helpful, welcoming and friendly. If you could clone the owners this should be the template for bed...

Now there is an idea-if I could just get a clone of myself I could sneak off to the greenhouse and Barbara would never know! But then I would miss meeting people and that wouldn't be so good-it's the people who make it fun-thanks for your very kind words and please come and see us again soon! Best Wishes Peter.

We stay, sadly, for one night only. We were attending a wedding nearby. The Falcon a House is in an idea, setting in a beautiful area of rural Herefordshire. We parked the car in front of the enclosure containing two magnificent owls. Wow! I love owls so this was quite a bonus. We were offered the choice between Room 1...

Best Ever Breakfast! Well you can't say fairer than that-thanks a million for these kind words. We aim to be able to replicate our efforts for all our guests, but it's a lot easier when we have such nice guests! The Peaches and Apricots are starting to colour up now and I am hoping for a bumper crop this year!...

Stayed for just one night as a base for a fishing trip on the Wye. Barbara and Peter were great hosts, breakfast was lovely and the flask fill up was very much appreciated.

Weddings can be stressful-for the wedding couple and the guests! What they need is for their hosts to help keep those levels under control by being helpful, supportive and unobtrusive!

It's always nice to get a good review, but we are especially happy when someone on business takes the time to add their thoughts. Staying away from home when it's work can be not a lot of fun and making those days better for people is a big part of why we are in this business! Thank you. Peter
