Beautiful secluded comfortable cottage
I booked this cottage for myself, my girlfriend and my dog to self isolate in during the COVID pandemic. We actually had to change our booking because of travel and the owner was very communicative and accommodating. The cottage is beautiful, it's set in it's own ground, fenced and gated, with a large lawn which easily accommodates playing with my labrador. It is set on a footpath which makes a quick walk of the dog very easy. The nearest other building is about a 1/4 mile away, but it's only 15 mins to drive to the supermarket so you're secluded but not cut off. The cottage has essentially no sound proofing and you can hear the birds all day and night, which is either something you love or dislike. There is a road right next to the cottage but it is rarely traveled and the occasional car going past is a nice thing to notice rather than an annoyance. The kitchen, though small, is very well appointed, we were able to cook pretty much everything we could want. There was some oil/salt/flour etc left in the kitchen cupboards, I assume by previous guests but it's a great help. Washing machine and washing line. Good sofa in the living room, good dining table and chairs, bathroom is downstairs, small like the kitchen but fine. It has a bath and a shower, plenty of hot water. Plug sockets everywhere. Good wifi. Lovely wood fire with fuel. The master bedroom is beautiful, high ceiling with exposed beams. Large bed which didn't give me back ache. Plenty of furniture to store things. The second bedroom had 2 single beds in it. It was very small and a bit of a maze to navigate in and out of. Fine for kids and for us as just a spare space. A few things to prepare for -The staircase is steep and narrow -Fair amount of flies -Bring some blankets, it's not cold but there aren't any -Downstairs is beautiful stone flags and tile which are cold, bring slippers -Small/few windows so fairly dark inside (it is an old cottage) -Sound travels easily in the house, doors are very loud to open and close. I'd say that it is a perfect retreat for a young couple, but it would not be so hot for a family that includes a young couple. If you get what I mean. If you catch my drift. Everyone will hear you. We came here to self isolate so I can't say anything about what is around. But as a peaceful secluded retreat for a couple it is excellent. I would come again and recommend.

Excellent standard of accomodation, lovely location
We have just returned from a relaxing week at Point Cottage which we found to be very comfortable, relaxing and well equipped. Large grassed garden ideal for dogs and children playing plus the bonus of a network of bridleways and footpaths from the door to enjoy traffic free walking. The cottage is well equipped with the bonus of a freezer in the garden building, nearest local store is 3 miles away in Madley and there are a couple of supermarkets within 8 miles in Hereford. This is a beautiful part of the UK, friendly villagers, good local pub within a 10 min walk of the cottage. WIFI is reliable and a good bonus. The cottage has been beautifully restored with exposed beams and timbers (but with the bonus of no low ceilings)! Very clean cottage, we will return.

Wonderfully Renovated. Clinically Clean. Perfect Location for peace, quiet and touring
Point Cottage is a real gem. Located between Hereford and Hay, off the beaten track but still easy to get to. On arrival the first thing you notice is the pure bliss of solitude apart from the sheep, birds and the sound of distant farm machinery. There were 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 kids so sleeping arrangements were 1 double room, 1 twin room and a sofa bed downstairs for the grumpy teenager, perfect. This cottage is obviously popular with Dog owners as per the reviews, but there is not a single trace of dogs having been there, it's that clean and fresh. Plenty of supplies in the lovely well equipped kitchen. Dining room and living room extremely cosy and warm. Downstairs Bathroom with shower is very clean and good water pressure in shower. Wi-Fi for the techies and teens. On a summers evening it was pure heaven sitting outside the house having a local ale and just looking up into the pitch black sky and viewing the stars. Something we don't get here in the South East. There really isn't a down side to staying at Point Cottage and I haven't even pointed out the great price for booking.

Well appointed feel good cottage break
My wife & I recently stayed at Point Cottage. Really impressed with its traditionalist appearance and how well appointed it was together with the internal refurbishment. Our dog loved it there and it was a great location for exploring the Wye valley. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage and in our humble opinion it was great value.

Wonderful cottage and very dog friendly
What a wonderful garden and great for countryside walks for the dogs The cottage was perfect to get away for a complete rest Had wonderful weather
