We are located in a quiet rural area close to the market towns of Leominster, Bromyard and Ledbury.

Furnished to a high standard the cottages were converted from a former cider barn where Symonds Cider originated in 1727.

Set in large landscaped gardens, with off road parking and plenty of seating areas to enjoy the garden, we are surrounded by beautiful Herefordshire countryside, with lovely walks and cycle routes straight from the door, past lakes and rivers and woods and not far from some great traditional pubs.

Symonds Cottage

The cottage has a brand new bathroom with toilet, power shower, and bath and also includes a downstairs toilet. The separate well equipped kitchen has a built in electric oven with gas hob and extractor, a fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and a washing machine. The generous sized open plan lounge has quality furnishings, a woodburner, 26'' TV/DVD (freeview), free WiFi and an MP3 docking station. Heating is provided by self controlled storage heaters throughout and makes for a very cosy cottage. Cot and highchair available.

The pretty half timbered cottages, converted from a former cider barn, are well maintained and surrounded by beautiful extensive gardens with countryside views to the rear. Each cottage has its own private rear courtyard garden with rattan chairs and sofa , cast iron dining set and sun brolley. Surrounded by interesting plants they are a perfect place to relax and enjoy lunch. Tables and chairs are also provided to the front of the cottages with views over the large front gardens and pond. Enjoy a quiet picnic or glass of wine in our small orchard. For the cyclists we have plenty of space for storing your bikes in the open barn next to the cottages. Parking is available right outside each cottage.

There are great walks and cycleroutes from your door including Bodenham lakes nature reserve which is ideal for dog walkers. You can stop on the footbridge and look over the River Lugg and for bird watchers visit the new bird hide overlooking the lakes.There are local village shops and pubs in Marden and Bodenham within a 5 minute drive.
