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 holiday lets/b&bs. 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.

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.

  • 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.

Lovely place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Stone Cottage was a great base for us while visiting family during the festive season. The views on waking are spectacular. The cottage looks over the river valley; a hidden meander of the Wye Valley which still feels relatively undiscovered. The cottage is comfortable and the bed has a good mattress. A good working kitchen as well. Would love to return in the summer.

Cosy, well-equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the local walks along the river. It's a great, comfy cottage from which you can explore a lovely bit of the country, with some great towns like Ross and Monmouth nearby. Everything you need is there. And there's a short cut to get to the pub on foot!

Stone Cottage, September 2016

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely cottage in a lovely part of Herefordshire.

The cottage is very well equipped, and very comfortable.

The owners description is completely accurate, and I would recommend the cottage to anyone wanting somewhere to stay close to the River Wye for fishing or even just relaxing.

Local pub serves up good food, and is only a short walking distance away.

Lovely peaceful location & excellent value

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful location with lovely views towards Ross on Wye. Antonia was very helpful regarding our late arrival and it was nice to arrive to such a well stocked kitchen after a long journey. Ideal location for exploring Herefordshire and the surrounding area and the accommodation represented excellent value. Would recommend visiting Symonds Yat and The Kymin for some excellent views.
