Family friendly

There's no need to forgo luxury when holidaying with children, we offer five star luxury to families with little ones of all ages and what's more, we don't believe in profiteering from parents, never raising our prices in response to school holidays, a rare find in this day and age! 

We'll happily provide travel cots, high chairs and sterilizers for babies and toddlers at no additional cost and kids of all ages will simply LOVE the scrumptious home-made chocolate cake and biccies you'll find in your cottage when you arrive.

We try to help you to keep packing to a minimum, all bed linen and towels are provided and in bathrooms, you'll find soap, toilet rolls and complimentary travel shampoo, shower gel and body lotion. Kitchens are fully equipped for the keenest of cooks and are supplied with tea bags, ground coffee and sugar and a jug of fresh milk chilling in the fridge for your arrival. All cleaning products including dishwasher tablets, tea towels, hand towels and dish cloths are provided including necessities such as salt, pepper, cooking oil, foil, cling film and kitchen roll. Freeview or Sky TV is installed in all properties together with Sky sports 1 and 2 and there's complimentary WiFi too. An excellent village shop a few minutes walk away offers an excellent range of daily essentials for your stay. 

There are a few luxury extras you may choose to book; our babysitting service will keep the kids safe and happy while you go out for some adult relaxation or you may prefer to stay in and enjoy a relaxing massage from one of our visiting therapists. There are tasty local dishes to order for the freezer, ideal for lazy arrivals and for larger family groups, you may even book a chef to cater for your every need from a BBQ to a formal dinner party and everything in between. There are even bookable maid services to clean up for you as you go along or you could simply book a maid to clean as you leave, now that's 5* luxury!

In the heart of the Herefordshire countryside, The Olde Rectory offers a safe haven for children. Set in 3 acres of grounds, there's plenty of space for them to run around and with a quiet village lane beyond, there's no need to worry about traffic! An ancient apple and walnut orchard is perfect for scrumping, den building or hide and seek and there's a mown area ideal for ball games.

We can arrange on-site activities for all ages from Circus Skills to Duck Herding and Laser Clay shooting, something for all the family

The village offers some lovely circular ‘door to door' walks and has an excellent recreation ground with swings, slides and climbing frames aimed at primary age children and a football pitch for the older ones. A shallow stream running through the village is perfect for toddling tots searching for frogspawn or sticklebacks and a stroll down the lane brings you to the river Teme for some more serious fishing or canoeing. The two village pubs both welcome families with casual menus to cater for all tastes.
