Hoarwithy is a pretty village perfectly placed for exploring the surrounding region of Herefordshire. Healer's Cottage is a lovely holiday home on the outskirts of the rural village of Hoarwithy. This delightful and welcoming 17th century stone built detached barn conversion is set in the owners' 5 acre smallholding and boasts a lovely shared lawned garden and private patio with furniture, a peaceful spot in which to enjoy some al fresco dining, reached through French windows from the bedroom. The cottage offers an open plan living area including a well-equipped fitted kitchen, dining and sitting areas, and a warming wood burner. The garden... affords gorgeous views over the Wye Valley and the fields of this area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Healer's Cottage is a wonderful holiday retreat for a romantic break.

Region: Herefordshire offers visitors the chance to journey through lush green countryside, enjoying splendid black-and-white timbered villages, a magnificent cathedral city, a fairytale Georgian castle at Eastnor or books galore in famous Hay-on-Wye.
Town: The village is a place where you can truly get away from it all, but is also easily accessed from the M50. The rural beauty of the village has remained virtually unchanged for centuries, and the countryside all around with its rolling hills, lush pastures and woodland is gloriously unspoilt. Nestling on the banks of the River Wye, Hoarwithy is home to a beautiful Italianate church, a superb pub with a restaurant and wonderful walking opportunities on the doorstep. Picturesque Ross-on-Wye is close by, and if you venture a little further afield you will find the historic cathedral city of Hereford, the incredible Wye Gorge at Symonds Yat, the Forest of Dean, and the gateway to Wales, Monmouth.
The lady owner was very nice and friendly. The cottage was absolutely perfect if you like peace and quiet and isolation. The donkeys were friendly and loved to come and see us. Situated right in the woods with no other residence in sight except for the owner*s house. It was very comfortable. The only possible downside were the horseflies but to be expected as there were donkeys in the field.

An excellent cottage in every way.

This was one of those special cottages that ticked all the boxes. Well furnished, everything there that you might need, warm, cosy, and picturesque. We will certainly return for another week of heaven. The area is excellent for walking, including on the property, where there is extensive woodland and path, with wide variety of animal life, to say nothing of the donkeys in the paddock itself. The owner was very helpful but not intrusive.
Beautiful Cottage and area

If you are looking for a place for relaxation and peace - this is it. Lovely cottage set in woodland away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Accommodation very spacious and full of character. Wonderful donkeys in the surrounding fields who were more than ready to be friendly, especially when there were carrots and apples on offer! Lots of relevant information available with suggestions for places to visit or to eat. Loved our stay and would thoroughly recommend to others.

Healers cottage is aptly named. For us it provided a perfect sanctuary to escape our routine and truly unwind in a peaceful, picturesque setting. Superbly appointed, well managed, we would highly recommend it.

Healers cotage is one of our favorite spots for holiday's The cottage is well equipt with interesting books There is a log fire with plenty of fuel making for a very cosy time Outside the cottage is the owners private woodland making the dogs stay also very enjoyable Locally there are several places to eat. Everything about the cottage is clean and welcoming,and finally the donkeys looking at you over the fence is quite delightful.
Peace and tranquility

We had an excellent week at this cottage with a warm welcome from the owner and her delightful donkeys. The directions to the cottage need improvement but once found in its very isolated setting it was delightful.
It was a good place from which to explore the area and certainly had all the right ingredients to make it a home from home holiday.

On a last minuate decision to have a late holiday we choose this one,it was situated in a lovely quiet area the cottage itself was well equipted and mantained, near to Hereford, local pubs,restaurants, plenty of nearby walks and with the friendly neighbours of the donkeys who visited us every day we had a really enjoyable holiday.
Our only gripe was the lane up to the cottage was very wet and muddy.

the service and welcome we received were very exceptional...the home had everything you needed...home from home....very comfortable...
the donkeys were very friendly and good company at tea time.....although out of the way it was very peaceful and quiet... local amenities were a drive away but if you want a quiet life away from hustle and bustle this cottage is what you need...there was nothing we didnt like...and the lady who has the cottage was very friendly and accomodating...definately would stay there again
