Ramblers Retreat is a lovely cottage, and the decor is superb it follows the same theme right through. There is everything that you need, its great for dogs because the garden is enclosed and there is a common to walk them a few yards away. The beds are lovely and comfy too.

Lovely modern space, perfect for our little family. Owners live next door but privacy totally respected. Made to feel very welcome, even the dog was left a welcome treat!

Cottage details say there is a shop very close which is one reason for us choosing to stay at Ramblers Retreat. There are 2 local shops but neither walking distance as nearly 2 miles away via a busy road - disappointing. The common is less than 5 mins walk away and is ideal for walking the dogs.

This is an annex outside a little village in Eaton bridge. Excellent for doggies as its safe so they cant get out. Location is out In The county but has some lovely walks and pubs. Annex is ideal for two people with a lovely modern kitchen and bedrooms. Owners are fab.

Lovely annexe cottage, very clean and well kept. Owner was very nice. Location was good, only a short drive to Hereford town. Well worth a visit. Dog friendly too, as we're many pubs in Hereford. We'd recommend it.

I think that the 5-star ratings for every category sums it up very well.
