We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at Hudgemoor Retreat. All aspects of the property have been very well-designed and thought-out. Pat, Clare and Roger couldn't have been more helpful. The area is very quiet and has access to some great walks yet is within easy reach of Ross-on-Wye for shops and restaurants. We enjoyed eggs from the HudgeRead moremoor hens, watching the antics of the goats from our dining table and walking up May Hill for the fantastic views to the Malverns and into Wales. Hide

The cottage was clean, comfortably furnished and well equipped. The rural location was really nice and relaxing but a bit tricky to find initially. The unit provided an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area, with plenty to do and see, plus several local historical towns and places of interest. There are several very good pubs and restauRead morerants within easy reach so we dined out most evenings. Pat, the owner, was very friendly and helpful in resolving any minor issues during our stay.

A fantastic property and location provided a peaceful and relaxing break. Our dog was fascinated by the hens, goats plus Gus the cat. The owners were on hand to answer any queries and give advice on the local area. Fresh herbs growing outside the kitchen and some eggs from the hens were an added bonus.
