    Lovely house and setting

    A lovely setting and a lovely house. We celebrated a 70th and a 35th birthday with all the family present so it was a great time. Everyone enjoyed the house and the dog was exhausted with the lovely walks. Lower Brockhampton is gorgeous, the costumed guide welcoming, knowledgeable and great with the small children. A lovely, very accessible and homely property. The playtrail was brilliant and the mud just added to the children's experience!

    Luxurious roll top bath!

    The Oast House suited our group perfectly! It was cosy and inviting, great kitchen and dining areas, lovely bedrooms and bathroom. We queued up to use the luxurious roll top bath! Finally, plenty of room for the kids to run around with great walks just outside the door. Top marks!

    Secluded property

    The quality of the linen provided and the seclusion of the property made our stay enjoyable.

    Made special:

    The size of the house and it's secluded and peaceful position away from all the hustle and bustle of being at home. The dark skies were amazing. My children were amazed with just how many stars and other night time objects they could see. The amount of wildlife we could see just walking from the house to Lower Brockhampton was fantastic. A quick visit to the brewery was interesting. It was worth contacting them prior to going to the cottage to check they were happy now it is under new management. Also worth visiting there pub in Hereford. Lots of great local pubs and restaurants nearby. Fantastic House. A great spacious place for all the family to spread out in. We had all we needed to relax and enjoy ourselves no matter what age, children, grandparents and a dog.
