A single-storey apartment located on the edge of the River Wye in the scattered village of Byford, 8 miles from Hereford, sleeping 2 people in 1 bedroom.

Herons is a single-storey apartment located on the edge of the River Wye in the scattered village of Byford, 8 miles from Hereford. The apartment sleeps two people in one super king-size bedroom, which can be a twin on request. There is a shower room in the apartment while the living accommodation comprises a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and river views.

Outside is a lawned garden with patio and furniture. With the River Wye just at the end of the garden and with wonderful walking available nearby, not to mention delightful Hay-on-Wye and historic Hereford within easy reach, Herons makes a great base for a romantic break in Herefordshire.


Perfect relaxing holiday in a beautiful cottage
The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The cottage was beautiful with a large lounge and perfect shower room. It had everything you would need for a holiday with a fully equipped kitchen (including a large fridge freezer). The Scenery was lovely with the River Wye at the bottom of the garden. Fishing is available for the garden stretch and two other stretches nearby. There is a large patio which was full of blooming flowers at the time of my stay and I would recommend this cottage to anybody looking for a quiet relaxing holiday - but bear in mind that Hereford with all it's facilities is only a short drive away

there is no hedge/fence between this and the next door (the Swans, same owner). only a short trellis.

Lovely property, perfect location
Stayed here in January for a quiet weekend break. Fantastic property, spotlessly clean and Denise the owner was great from booking, directions and meet and greet, nothing was too much trouble. The views over the garden to the river were beautiful. I took the opportunity to fish the river and the owner arranged this for me. I would recommend this for anybody wanting a peaceful country break with plenty to do and see in the area.

Idyllic stay
We wanted a relaxed getaway and this accommodation was just perfect. Herons is a home from home with everything you can want, it was so clean and comfortable with plenty of room. It is situated in a superb location with the river wye running through the garden which was well kept. The views were beautiful and plenty of wildlife. The owner Denise was a real treasure and so friendly and accomadating. So if you want a jewel this is a must.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Herons and as usual we received a very warm welcome from the owner. The Herons is a spotlessly clean and well furnished apartment. With the River Wye running at the bottom of the well maintained garden it is a great place to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Would certainly recommend.
