About Antonia Cuthbert

I worked in the City until after my children were born. I bought our house in Herefordshire as a bolthole from London and to be near my family. We now have 2 children and 2 dogs and Herefordshire is my favourite county in the whole of the UK. Being able to share the cottage next door with other families who enjoy the surroundings as much as we do gives me great pleasure. My husband has recently retired enabling us to live at home for the first time in 20 years!

Antonia Cuthbert purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Antonia Cuthbert chose Herefordshire

This village is our home and our house is next door to this cottage. We bought it because we had the opportunity and decided to do self-catering holiday lets. Herefordshire is one of the most beautiful (in my opinion) counties in England and certainly one of the least spoilt. As you will see from the views from the cottage, it is stunning countryside and while public transport is is not great that adds to the charm of the county. From the River Wye to the Black Mountains, Malvern Hills and Forest of Dean there is outstanding natural beauty and we hope visitors will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

The peace of the countryside and watching the seasons change over the Wye Valley are very special features. In winter especially the cottage is very cosy with a very effective wood burning stove and it is a wonderful place to just hide away in for a few days.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: While the main bedroom is perfect for a couple, the second bedroom is very small with just a single bed.

No smoking in the cottage please. Outside: The garden is small but well tended with a bench and table to sit at while admiring the view. A small barbeque is also provided. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and bed linen are included in the rental and changed on a weekly basis for longer staying guests. For guests staying longer than one week, the cottage will be cleaned by appointment. Please leave the cottage in a clean and tidy state on departure.

Lovely week in Herefordshire

  • 4 of 5

As returning visitors we very much enjoyed our stay at Stone Cottage. The bed is really comfortable and as I had some back problems for the duration of our stay that was much appreciated. You really have everything you need in the cottage but I think a bigger TV screen would be something to think about as the current one is very small. We were travelling for 6 weeks in UK so had our own large computer screen to watch. Also, the cold tap in the kitchen is very stiff and needs some attention. We bought a plastic washing up bowl which a previous visitor mentioned was necessary to save water in the large Belfast sink. All in all a great holiday cottage but lacking some TLC here and there. The garden is lovely to sit in and there is also a barbecue for visitors' use which is a thoughtful touch.

Lovely, comfortable and peaceful little cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage, whilst old (I would like to know how old) has everything that you would expect. The most interesting bit was the old brick bread oven, appended to the end of the building next to the fireplace and the wood burner, which me and my friend sat on front of having discussions into the wee hours. We didn't use the TV, but the wi-fi came in handy looking online for details of local places to visit. I especially enjoyed my visit to Hereford Cathedral and the magnificent Nappa Mindi, the medieval symbolic map of the Christian world. We also really appreciated the local information folder and leaflets and followed the circular walk one evening before dinner at the local pub which is a 10 minute leisurely stroll down the hill. Antonia was friendly and welcoming, and I would recommend a visit to this lovely cottage.

Lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful quiet location

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here for our Wye fishing trip. Lovely welcome from Antonia the owner. Cottage was perfect for our needs. After a days fishing it was great to come back to a comfy, well equipped cottage. Lovely garden to relax in, take in the view and watch the birdlife with a well earned beer.

Highly recommended. We will definitely be back again.

classy

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, cosy, clean, very well equipped rental. Ideally situated for Ross, Hereford and Symonds Yat Only 1 negative, being asked to take recyclables with you is a first for us! Don't really expect to go on a break and to have to bring your rubbish home with you. Whilst I understand this request in the visitors guide book. With respect. recycling is not our problem. Aside from this I would have rated it a 5 star.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. For clarification, it is only bottles/glass which don't get taken away by the rubbish collectors and which I politely suggest guests might dispose of themselves. I leave a council issued recycling bag for guests' use but that gets collected once a fortnight so I think there must have been some misunderstanding. I certainly don't expect guests to take their rubbish home!

Cosy and comfy

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Stone Cottage for a weekend in February. It was wonderful.

The cottage is small but cosy with all you could need for a relaxing break. The wood burner was lovely, the bed was fantastically comfortable and the shower was powerful and lovely and hot.

The area is very peaceful, with lovely walks alongside the river. I can't review the local pub as we were so snug and comfortable in the cottage that we decided to stay in and relax and the kitchen has all you need to prepare any meal.

Lovely stay all in all.

Car: necessary

Travel:

A car is essential for this location, the nearest train station being in Hereford, 8 miles away. There is a bus service to Ross and Hereford but it is infrequent. Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff Airports are all about 1 1/2 hour's drive from the property.

Distances:

Stone Cottage is situated just outside the picturesque village of Hoarwithy, within 10 mins walk from the village pub, The New Harp Inn. Ross on Wye is 5 miles south, a market town with antique shops, pubs and restaurants. Hereford is about 8 miles north with its cathedral, medieval chained library and Mappa Mundi, leisure centre and swimming pool. It too has good shops and restaurants. Hay on Wye is about 30 miles with its jazz and book festivals and antique shops.

Further Details:

The Wye Valley is a walker's paradise with hundreds of footpaths covering spectacular countryside. On the border with Wales, there is much historical interest with Offa's Dyke nearby and the border castles of Goodrich, Skenfrith, White and Grosmont. Tintern Abbey is within easy driving distance as are the Malvern Hills and Black Mountains. Other activities include fishing, canoeing (a great fun activity for all the family) and children's adventure parks in the Forest of Dean. The property does not come with its own fishing on the Wye, but makes ideal accommodation for those fishing the Middle Wye beats. For racing enthusiasts the courses at Hereford, Ludlow, Chepstow and Cheltenham are all within striking distance.
