Hereford, Herefordshire, England
The White House at Brinsop is a grade II listed farmhouse dating from 15th century that retains many of its original features. The attached stone and timber framed former cider house has been sensitively converted into two charming self catering holiday cottages that combine traditional architecture with modern, comfortable accommodation. The properties are available individually or can be let together (see separate listing for The Cider Press no 311452).

This cottage is named after Eric Dee, who was born at the White House in 1923. He has numerous tales of life here from the early part of the twentieth century right up until the mid 1960s including detail about the horse driven apple crusher that was located in the main living area of the cottage and the shire horse that powered it.

Dees Cottage is well equipped, comfy, quiet and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay and loved the home made lemon drizzle cake and the provisions that had been provided for us on arrival- enough to make a meal and a drink.

We arrived and we greeted first by Tim then by Abby. We were given a lovely welcome pack of scrumptious lemon drizzle cake, home made bread, eggs, butter and Muesli. The cottage is well presented and very modern inside despite being a listed building. We found it very snug, warm and comfortable and an excellent base for walks in the...
