“Idyllic, dog friendly - highly recommended!”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Just returned home from a three night stay at The Orchard. One of the best dog friendly accommodations we have stayed in!

Amazing views, fantastic accommodation and only a short drive to Hereford.

The Orchard has everything you need. We would definitely recommend a visit & we look forward to going back soon.

A 3 day trip to Herefordshire house hunting, The Orchard was slap bang in the middle of our preferred area so was ideal, A lovely warm friendly welcome , no fuss from the owner about pointing out this or that which is just how we like it. warm peaceful and very comfortable with everything you'd expect to find, stunning views through the floor to ceiling windows and a pair of buzzards to watch most evenings.
The welcome jar of local honey and bottle of apple juice was appreciated.

“Ideal countryside retreat”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

A beautiful place to stay for a couple wanting some peace and tranquility.
The property was very well equipped and the owners very friendly without being obtrusive.
It is an ideal location for a countryside holiday but has easy access to lovely places such as Hereford, Hay-on-Wye and Ledbury within easy reach.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we return to th earea.

“Perfect peaceful base from which to explore the countryside”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Small but immaculately presented with excellent attention to detail and wonderful views. Suzanne gave us a lovely warm welcome and the impression that nothing was too much trouble. The cabin was well designed making best use of the limited space and was perfectly adequate for our needs. A lovely place to spend the few days we had to spare.

“Beautiful cabin, beautiful views”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Lovely little cabin and lovely owners. Would definitely recommend for a quiet short break away. Has the advantage of being in a relaxing place with lovely views and wildlife with the city being 10/15 min drive away so you get best of both worlds. Would love to visit again, thank you!
