The owners were very friendly and welcoming, in spite of being very busy with lambing which was fascinating to observe. The cottage was very warm and comfortable and in a glorious spot. Abbey Dore is very interesting and the cottage is very well placed between Hereford and abergavenny. There was nothing to fault with the cottage and the mixed weather meant that we really appreciated the cosy but spacious cottage.

I stayed there for two weeks at the beginning of November, 2011 and it was such a peaceful and relaxing place to be! Oh, I miss it so much. The long walks along the country lanes, sitting on the back patio and writing...and being introduced to Welsh cakes by the nice woman who owns the place! When I first got there I noticed right away that the pictures on the Sykes Cottages website don't do the place justice. Also, when she was showing me around inside I was struck at how big it is! Very nicely decorated inside and my god how do I describe the view from the living room glass doors? Amazing!!

The cottage was excellent, very clean and in a beautiful location. The owners were really friendly, my wife enjoyed visiting the lambs as they born, and our dog Rosie loved running in all the fields. We had a great holiday and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet holiday. The surrounding countryside in the Wye valley was excellant and great dog walking country
Beautiful and relaxing

The bungalow was everything it said. The location was wonderful,so relaxing and quiet. The bungalow was furnished to a very high standard, everything needed was there. The host was most helpful.
The evenings spent in front of the log burner were fabulous.
The garden and the field were greatly appreciated by us both and the dog!
Fabulous accommodation - stunning location!

We had a really great New Year in Hill Farm Cottage. The location is idyllic (for those who like peace and quiet). The property was incredibly spacious and the owners couldn't have been more welcoming whilst giving us all the space we needed! What more could you ask for - we will definitely be back!
