The Mortimer Trail and walks to Hergest Ridge provide visitors to the region with the chance to see the inspiration for music by Elgar and Mike Oldfield whilst the market town of Hay-on-Wye – often called the ‘town of books' is within easy driving distance. Hereford too is not far and offers an impressive Norman cathedral and the famous Mappa Mundi.

This was one of the nicest, if not the nicest property we have ever stayed in. Very friendly host for whom nothing was too much trouble. Lovely setting and a lovely cottage all round. We would certainly recommend and would hope to return again some day.

The owners were so friendly and very helpful. They had left us numerous items to make our stay enjoyable. A wonderful cottage in every way!

A delightful cottage in lovely surroundings. The owners are very friendly and helpful and had left a welcome pack of freshly laid eggs from their chickens, welsh cakes and locally produced raspberry lemonade. Plenty to see and do within 30-45 minute drive as well as on doorstep with some lovely walks on the neighbouring footpaths. We visited Hereford, Leominster, Hay on Wye and The Elan Valley to name just a few. All in all a very enjoyable week and a place I would have no hesitation recommending to anyone.

This was a really homely, friendly cottage. It is filled with beautiful patchworks and cushions made by the owner which give it such a warm feeling. There is so much to do in this part of the UK that we could have easily stayed for another week and still not done everything! The beds were super comfy! The kitchen was nice and easy to use.

On arrival, the owner had left fresh eggs, baking and homemade lemonade for us. She also came to greet us and check that we knew how to use the utilities. We felt very welcomed and the cottage had everything that we could possibly need. I would definitely recommend this as it is close to lovely walks in Kington where the people are also very friendly and helpful. A truly lovely place to spend a holiday.

The cottage and area were superb. I would like to say thank you to the owner for a comfortable stay. Wales is a lovely place, with plenty of places to go for both young and elderly. We will go back again.

The cottage was prepared for our arrival with some basic food supplies waiting for us. The cottage was immaculate, clean and tidy. The owners were very friendly helpful and on hand when needed. There was so much to see and do we couldn't fit enough in. It was situated on the edge of the Black Mountains with amazing views all around. The people were so friendly were ever we went.

The owners were really friendly and helpful - the setting lovely, and letting our daughter play with their new puppy really made the holiday for her.

This is an area that we have wanted to visit for quite some time. We could not have picked a better base. The house was gorgeous, the immediate area very quiet and picturesque but within easy reach of either breathtaking countryside or towns. There is plenty to see, and is ideal for anyone wanting to get away from it all without being too isolated.

A beautiful cottage in a delightful, unspoilt setting that proved to be an excellent base for walking and exploring the local area. Mrs Price, the owner, made us feel very welcome, further enhancing our wish to return another year.

Court Cottage is a lovely, spacious and homely property. The large garden was excellent for the children to play in and full of wildlife. The owner was extremely helpful and we were met with a generous welcome pack. The surrounding area is very rural and scenic with plenty of places to visit.

A very nice comfortable cottage, a real home from home. One of the best (actually probably THE BEST) we have ever stayed in.

The cottage was very homely and we were made to feel very welcome by the owner. We had a lovely family break away from everything.

Stopped here with two teenagers. The cottage is roomy with 2 double and 2 single bedrooms. Mrs Price who owns it has an amazing taste. The ability to put abstract things together and make rooms look great. Quirky but great. She should be an interior designer as she has a great eye. Big garden, barbecue and parking for two cars and more by campsite if needed. There is a campsite at the rear but it is not noticeable. The cottage has decent wi fi and a 22" flatscreen tv containing a DVD. The kitchen is well equipped and pleasant and there is a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. There is an onsite shop that is a real gem full of great stuff milk, eggs, bacon and essentials. A real lifesaver at times. It's an honesty shop. No service just leave the money. The place is pretty remote . The pub across the road is closed and the nearest chip shop is 3 miles away. Same distance for a convenience store and be warned not much stays open past 9! We found the local pubs disappointing for food and not that inviting. We drove 17 miles away to Leominster to eat which took about 30 minutes. Also the house suffers from damp so will feel a bit wet to the touch , you smell it when you come in. You acclimatise and it does not spoil the holiday but it is always there . We travelled to the big pit, national showcases, Hereford, Worcester all about 60-90 minutes away. We also went to mount Snowden but that took 3 hours. The roads are all A road and not fast easy drives. Windy and bendy and if you go fast you may meet something coming the opposite way! All in all a great holiday and a decent cottage.

This property was perfect for our planned cycling and walking holiday - only the weather dampened our spirits a little bit. I stayed with my three children and we hired bikes from a local hire company. The house at Walton is a perfect base for a number of walking routes and cycling routes, and a perfect cosy retreat from some of the summer weather!

We had a lovely week and Jean the owner was an absolute star! She made sure we were well catered for and even took one of our little ones on a ride in a tractor which was such a treat for him! Well equipped and comfortable accommodation.

This cottage was perfect for our holiday.. We were met with a wonderful welcome from the owner, Jean - a few wee homemade goodies - cordial, eggs, fresh cake, and flowers. The owner has an excellent eye for the interior. The house is on a farm, just across from the owners home. They were on hand if any need, but not too intrusive - perfect balance. There is also an on-site shop with lots of local produce and homemade items. This is all by honesty box. We had 4 young kids with us, and they adored the garden. It was a beautiful week, and we ate outside every night in the garden and even used a paddling pool - it was perfect, in every sense. We also asked to see the farm, and in response the owner gave my son a ride in the tractor - he is autistic with a fascination with all things that drive - it made his holiday (and ours!!) I can't praise this house and Jean enough! We loved it!

Court Cottage was a very comfortable and well equipped place.. The campsite shop and communal facilities were a useful bonus. The owner was very friendly and helpful. A few things could be improved. The beds were a bit hard. The power shower was loud and a bit too powerful. A cooker extractor hood could be useful. Instructions on the washing equipment could have been made available. Googling the property showed one biker rally. We were reassured that one was not happening while we were there, but advance certainty would be good.

Great cottage and warmest of Christmas welcomes.. Genuinely warm host who provided useful local info and some great homemade treats. Very much enjoyed our stay and would love to return in 2019. Thanks

We had a really wonderful two weeks in this beautiful cottage.. The location is stunning, Jean, the owner is one of the loveliest people I have met. The cottage is large, four bedrooms, but Jean has made it so cosy and comfortable with lots of her own hand crafted quilts and other touches all round the cottage. We didn’t want to leave. The cottage is on a working farm and the owners live in a lovely house a few yards away. They are there if you need anything, we didn’t because the cottage is so well equipped, but they are not at all intrusive in any way. The location is quiet and in an ideal spot to explore mid wales. We went to Snowdon from here, the train ride to the top is breathtaking. We saw hundreds of red kites being fed, also amazing. There are some lovely towns and restaurants close by if you don’t want to travel too far and Jean has compiled a book of local walks and other attractions which we found very useful. We can’t recommend it highly enough, although then everyone will book it and there won’t be room for us next time, Thank you Jean, we will return.

A very comfortable and sufficiently spacious cottage for our family of four adults and two small children.. Nicely decorated and furnished. Comfortable beds and warm bedding and lots of toys, books etc for children to play with. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Very convenient for access to Kington for shops and leisure facilities.

Wonderful and cozy cottage on beautiful property, and great hostess available to hand us the keys despite booking.. Com not notifying as they claimed about our arrival time. (Tip- phone hostess yourself with arrival time with the phone number provided). The beds were comfortable, and being able to cook and do a bit of laundry to get us through the rest of our travels was just great. We would love to return and spend a month here!
