Dogs welcome.

The space
At the moment we’re closed due to lockdown, but we’d love to welcome you later in the year - risk free!

**We always strive to maintain extremely high standards of cleanliness, but due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces and leaving at least 24 hours between reservations. We are following AirBnB’s strict cleaning guidelines. We are confident that guests can still enjoy a socially distanced break with us, but please ensure you have read the COVID section in our house rules before booking.**

This former farm out building has been beautifully converted to create a perfect county get-away.

The bedroom has a comfortable double bed, dressed with Egyptian cotton linen. There is a wardrobe in the room.

The bathroom is adjacent with shower over bath and fluffy towels are included.

There is an open plan living/dining room with a comfy armchairs, TV and DVD player (plus access to a DVD library) and an extremely cosy gas wood burner for snugly evenings.

The kitchen has an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and is well equipped for all of your culinary needs. We also include washing up liquid, tin foil, cling film, salt, pepper and oil so you don't have to think about packing anything other than your food! There is access to a shared washing machine and tumble dryer throughout your stay.

All heating and hot water is included in the price of your stay.

Outside there is a private, sunny terrace area with table, chairs and BBQ. This is the perfect spot to sit and relax and take in the glorious countryside which is abundant with wildlife.

We have a well stocked shared DVD library for you to use throughout your stay as well as lots of maps and local information. WiFi and parking is available free of charge.

There is a range of Clipper teas, coffee and hot chocolate for your arrival along with a bottle of our very own apple juice.

We (Serena, Simon & Elijah) are on hand if you need anything during your stay.

Welsh Cottage is surrounded by beautiful and tranquil countryside, we can’t guarantee you’ll sleep better than you ever have, but there’s a good chance you will! It’s an idyllic place to get away from it all.

Guest access
Guests have their own private terrace and use of the shared walled garden and lawn, social distancing is not a problem here!

Other things to note
There's access to a shared washing machine and tumble dryer. Please note free WiFi is available, but the signal can be a bit 'countryside' slow, and this also goes for mobile reception - it can be patchy depending on your phone/network.

Location

Aylton, England, United Kingdom

Close to the M5/M50, yet rural and peaceful.

Just a few steps down the lane is Aylton’s historic 12th century church, which is definitely worth a look for its beautiful sundial at the very least. And there are so many walks in the surrounding countryside that we couldn’t possibly get into them all here. We do, however, have a very well stocked ‘library’ of walks, OS maps, guides and more – just delve in and find something fantastic to do.

We are also close by to the Malvern Hills, Three Counties Showground, Hartpury College and Eastnor Castle.

City girl living in the country. We (Serena & Simon) moved up from London to beautiful Aylton in September 2014, just before having our son, Elijah. White House Cottages were converted from farm buildings about 20 years ago, and we have thoroughly enjoyed updating the five beautiful cottages and putting our own mark on them. We are "foodies" and cannot believe what a foodie haven Herefordshire is; from wonderful producers to excellent restaurants. We are really excited to welcome guests and share the stunning, unspoilt hidden gem that is Herefordshire!

During your stay
We live just across the driveway, so we’ll usually be here to welcome you and show you the ropes (if you like) and then leave you to enjoy your stay. But we’re always about if you need us, whether it’s to replace a bulb or recommend a great pub. For stays over a week we will arrange a suitable time to provide fresh linen.
