I took my family away to the Croft for my 50th birthday and it could not have been a better celebration, there were 21 of us but the house easily accommodated 24. The house was perfect and the owner popped in to see us to show us around and made us feel that it was our home for the duration. The swimming pool, Sauna, pool room and gym made such a difference especially for the time of year we were there January. Everything was clean and comfortable and I cannot recommend this house for a gathering of family & friends more, absolutely wonderful!

This was our second stay at The Croft. It really is the most comfortable house and the facilities are second to none. For a large group it is perfect-ours was a family gathering and even though we utilised all the bedrooms,we never felt cramped.
I would thoroughly recommend this property.

This house was perfect for our group of 5 families. Mixture of adults and under 5's all had a great time. House was nice and clean and well equipped. Pool was brilliant and nice and warm. Sufficient outdoor chairs and tables as well as indoor. Any minor issues, (which were down to us and not the owners!) were solved asap by the owners. Location was good as amenities were only a short drive away. You have to try the Ice-creams @ the petrol station - they are huge!!!

Firstly the cakes and flowers on arrival were a lovely touch.
The property is of a high standard and very spacious.
We went for my 40th birthday with 6 families it was perfect for this get together.
The pool was a fantastic extra for the kids.
The only negative I can think of is that the pool room had no heating in so was very cold apart from this can not fault the place.
The owner was so friendly and helpful. Would definitely love to go back
Fantastic family get together

We stayed at the Croft at the beginning of September, it was to celebrate a 50th birthday, and we had age ranges from 5 months to 70. The house had ample space and accommodation for all of us, with us being a large group it was nice to find quiet places at times!! The house, grounds and pool are absolutely fantastic. The owners so welcoming and helpful. I could go on for ever, but short and sweet, if you rent this house you will not be disappointed, it met all our expectations and more, top marks. There are plenty of beautiful towns to visit in the area, and local pubs that do lovely food.
What a wonderful place and great amenities.

We visited in april 2012 for a week for a whole family get together, there were 22 of us from a few weeks old to 83 years old. The accomodation really suited our needs although could do with an extra shower or two. Everywhere was well equipped and clean. The pool, games room etc were the icing on the cake. (The cakes were lovely too!) We also enjoyed being able to use the garden and play equipment. It is conveniently situation for Hereford and Hay. We would go again. It is more economical to be able to go for the whole week.
Wonderful accommodation for a large family or group of friends

The owners were friendly and helpful. The large accommodation housed a family of 7 adults and 9 children, aged between 18 and 3. The swimming pool was fantastic and enjoyed by everyone.
We had a wonderful weeks holiday at The Croft, the house was well equipped, the sitting rooms, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms were spacious..
