Pricing From: £376.00
Hemford is a tiny village located at the top of the Hope Valley and is at the centre of some of Shropshire’s most spectacular scenery.
Perfect for parties of up to 5 people, Hillgate House was originally built in the 18th Century, when it was used as a farmhouse. Since then, it has been lovingly restored to retain many of its original features, such as exposed beams and a cast-iron stove, yet has been decorated in a modern, yet complementary style. There is a large, lawned garden from which you can enjoy the scenery provided by the Callow and the Corndon Hills, or simply kick back with a glass of wine and enjoy a spot of summertime dining.
There are walking, cycling and horse-riding facilities close by and parking for up to 3 cars.
RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
We stayed here for a family holiday over half term. The owner was very thoughtful and rung us before our stay and when we arrived there were helpful additions like lots of hand sanitiser and gloves and wipes. Cottage was lovely and clean but the Shepherds hut was out of use due to the cleaner using it for Covid cleaning precautions which was totally understandable. We had seen some reviews that there were no freezer facilities but there is a small freezer that was totally fine for our needs. Our two labradors loved the garden and did not want to leave. The garden is dog safe but if you have small dogs they could get out through the gate bars, but the owner did explain this in his phone call. Beautiful views and extremely quite,the main noise was the birds singing in the morning. Beds were comfortable and plenty of games and books in the lounge. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and all utensils you would need. I can understand why people come back time and time again. Only one negative, we knew there was no WiFi and had promised our son he could use data on his phone for the week but we did not know that the phone signal is very poor. However, this did not spoil our holiday
The cottage has such a lovely feel about it and you immediately felt at home. The garden was superb. It was spotlessly clean and had a rustic cottage feel - a typical country cottage. We loved the remoteness albeit there was a school just up the road, it was peaceful, full of wildlife and some superb walks although because the weather was so nice we mostly enjoyed chilling in the garden watching the farmer at work and the wildlife.
We liked the peace and privacy of the cottage and the general isolation. Being able to let the dogs run free in the garden was a bonus. The cottage was well appointed and very comfortable; it felt like home almost straight away.
We had a lovely holiday. The atmosphere was very welcoming and we particularly enjoyed the garden. The cottage is very comfortable and stylish. The location is idyllic. Every effort was made to make our stay memorable.
I have been here quite a few times now and it is like walking into a well loved home.The owner has spent a lot of money on the property.The location is so relaxing and just what we needed.The garden is perfect. .
