It is surrounded by its own enclosed, part cultivated and part wild garden and offers private, off-road parking for three vehicles. The bungalow offers ample quantities of everything you need: an endless supply of hot water, an effective central heating system, a large kitchen with extensive work surfaces, a spacious dining room, comfortably sleeps five people and a wood burner with unlimited supply of logs (free of charge), all in a peaceful and tranquil location. The rear of the property has panoramic views over the Welsh hills and Hergest Ridge. There are numerous footpaths near the property giving you the chance to put on your walking boots and explore the beautiful Herefordshire countryside. You can literally walk from the garden over sheep pastures and wild moorlands to reach Hergest Ridge, which is part of the Offa's Dyke Trail. On top of the ridge is an old Victorian racetrack and wild ponies graze freely. Here you can look over towards the Black Mountains of Wales and the Malvern Hills of Worcestershire, with uninterrupted English and Welsh countryside landscapes all around. Steepholm is close to the market town of Kington (also walkable across open fields) where you'll find shops, supermarkets, and places to eat out. Within a 30-mile radius of the accommodation lies the Historic city of Hereford, with its beautiful cathedral and Mappa Mundi, and the towns of Leominster, Ludlow, and Hay-on-Wye. Locally, the Black and White housing trail, Hergest croft gardens, and the Small Breeds and Owl farm park, are all well worth a visit. If you enjoy walking, cycling or just exploring the locality and want to come home to a warm, comfortable, and peaceful base each evening then Steepholm is the place for you."

‘Immaculately clean and tidy. Very comfortable, plenty of space and crockery, choice of dining in the kitchen or in the more formal dining room, and picnic bench and garden table and chairs outside! Large, beautiful garden, and at the bottom of the garden access to neighbouring fields and beyond, where you can actually join the Herefordshire Trail. Marjorie and her daughter, Lorraine were most welcoming; kind, friendly, and helpful. Gorgeous homemade butterfly cakes awaited us, and Marjorie even brought a second batch round for us on our penultimate day! Steepholm itself is in a very beautiful and peaceful location and within easy reach of the town of Kington. Also just down the road is the Owl and Small Breeds Farm which was a real hit with all of us. Thank you for a really wonderful stay. Just what we needed at this time. Thoroughly recommended.’

‘The fact there's no wi-fi but unlimited wood to burn suggests how to enjoy this cottage. With brilliant views and footpaths literally from the garden. A wonderful host with a well stocked kitchen with all utensils needed. Review independently collected and verified by Reevoo’

‘A beautiful bungalow in a stunning, peaceful location. We had a lovely holiday. The owner is very friendly, warm and welcoming and had a lovely log fire and a bottle of wine for us on our arrival. She lives just down the road so if you have any concerns she is not far away. The bungalow has fantastic views at the rear, looking west towards Hergest Ridge so you may also be lucky enough to see some lovely Sunsets. There are sheep in the field behind the garden, all adding to the rural ambience. The location of this cottage is great, only a couple of miles from Kington which has small supermarkets, butchers and various other shops. We recommend the ‘Angel Fish Bar’ for takeaway fish and chips - lovely piece of haddock and great chips! The road into Kington is a very quiet country lane so it is easy and safe to cycle/walk into Kington. There are lots of quiet country lanes to cycle on and the bungalow is situated near the National cycle route 825. We also visited the Brecon Beacons for some mountain walks a couple of times and these are about 50 minutes drive away. The bungalow itself is on a quiet country lane with hardly any traffic. The nearest neighbour is probably about 100 metres away so you have privacy, peace and seclusion; the perfect hideaway. The bungalow is light and airy. We stayed in September and made use of the central heating, hot water (fantastic shower) and log burner. All of these are unlimited and included in the price of the holiday. If you love walking and cycling in very rural surroundings and want to come home to a comfortable and peaceful base each evening and yet want the convenience of being close to a small town then this bungalow will be for you. We would highly recommend this holiday cottage. Review independently collected and verified by Reevoo’

‘We had an idyllic week in Steepholm, a cosy stone-built cottage surrounded by lush green lawns and with a view over sheep pastures to the nearby hills of Hergest Ridge. The pictures on the Cottages. com website give an accurate view. Generosity characterizes the provision in the cottage: There are ample quantities of everything you need (crockery, cutlery, towels), and all the basic utensils for meal preparation. The endless supply of hot water and the effective central heating system, the large kitchen, (no dishwasher but a separate under-counter freezer) with its extensive work surfaces, and the spacious dining room made our stay relaxed and comfortable. Everything is spotlessly clean; the owner and her daughter clearly love the house and take great pride in making it inviting for all their guests. Living nearby, they respond quickly to any problems. TV reception is good; there is no catch-up facility but there is a DVD player which appeared quite new. There is no Wi-Fi in the cottage but a nearby mast provides a very strong 4G signal so we never felt disadvantaged and were able to phone and text whenever we wished. The wood burner in the lounge was ready to light, had we needed it. The double bedroom is small but had a very comfortable new double bed. The bathroom, though somewhat old-fashioned in style, is, like the rest of the cottage, very clean. The shower is new and powerful. It is well regulated, giving a constant temperature once the hot water has made its way along a long pipe run from the kitchen. The owner is very proud to have won an award as best landlady in a national poll and derives great satisfaction from pleasing her guests and earning high scores in reviews. Her warm and friendly welcome and obvious desire to ensure we had a good week were fundamental to our delightful first experience of Herefordshire. We shall certainly return to Steepholm within the next 12 months or so; there is so much more to see in this beautiful part of England but its attraction for us is due in large measure to the knowledge that we shall have the most comfortable and relaxing cottage to return to at the end of every day.

‘Excellent location and lovely host! Not the most up-to-date place we stayed at and the beds could be a bit more comfortable, but other than that it was the best at everything else! Especially the availability of large tables to play games on, both inside and out was a big bonus. And waking up to that view is just wonderful! Review independently collected and verified by Reevoo’

‘Steepholm is a beautiful cottage sat in a very large enclosed garden, in a stunning location overlooking the fields and mountains, it is approximately 3/4 of a mile off the main A4111 making it easy to visit a lot off places. The cottage is very well maintained and has all the equipment needed, it is a credit to the owner. Highly recommended.’
