Howle Hideaway is a real gem hidden in the depth's of the Herefordshire countryside.
The house has been beautifully decorated throughout to a very high standard and was a real 'cosy' place to stay as a couple. The property had a very large open plan lounge and kitchen with the bedroom on the first floor (via a quite tight spiral staircase).
The owners of the property were very helpful and were willing to help out when we encountered problems with the weather (it snowed very heavily when we were there). There is also a lovely pub about a mile away which does grea food.
All in all a great little hideaway for a romantic getaway from it all!
