“Excellent.”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Before arriving at The Greenwood for a night's stay I had contacted Penny to confirm a few details and her friendly and welcoming nature was obvious from the start. The house is lovely, the rooms are clean, comfortable and well furnished; and there were a multitude of little extras which made all the difference. Breakfast was one of champions, with a wide selection of locally sourced, very well cooked food and homemade delights. There was a communal lounge and bar which were both very nice, as well as a therapy centre which I am sure would be excellent too. If you are in the area this is somewhere not to miss.

Try this eco-friendly guest house. We stayed here one night on our way to Hereford and enjoyed it. Although it is situated on a main road, the house is set well back from the road and we had a quiet, comfortable night. Penny was a conscientious hostess and suggested a nice local pub for our evening meal. The hearty English breakfast, which was cooked to order, was delightful using fresh local produce. The house was easy to find and the car park was more than adequate. Penny obviously works hard to keep her guests happy!

We have just returned home after a 2 night stay which was most enjoyable and pleasant. Lovely house and setting. The rooms were clean and roomy. Penny the host was very professional and welcoming. I will save the best till last ......Breakfast was delicious and plentiful with home made marmalade. Scrummy! Would definitely come back. Thank you very much.

We had the privilage of staying at this wonderful house during the summer. We experienced their hospitality and friendliness as overnight guests and Wedding reception guests.
The rooms where clean with little touches of luxury. The breakfast was 'scrummy' and so moorish. The Wedding reception was set outside under an open marquee and the food was ... perfect.
We would have loved to be able to stay longer and definately recommend The Greenwood.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have sun in the morning.

Stopped here for a night last week. Lovely clean quiet comfortable accommodation. Penny is a gracious host. Breakfast was delicious. A great place to stay. We didn't have our dogs with us but we could see that it was a dog friendly place.

Room Tip: Probably try for room at back of house if possible as road noise may be a problem.

Thank you for your kind comments.
The road noise is not too bad as the guest house is set well back from the road, however when windows are open in the summer months it is more noticeable. There is only one room overlooking the back of the house.
