Lovely secluded cottage. Very well equipped. Great base to explore the local area
We had a lovely stay in this well equipped cottage. It overlooks a beautiful walled garden laid out with vegetables and fruit trees. There is plenty of parking and the area is lovely and quiet. We were greater with home made flapjacks on the table which went down a treat. There are many historical places to visit in the area so it makes a perfect base for exploring.
Thank you so much for making the time to give us your very kind review.
I am so pleased that the cottage and this lovely area suited you all so well and that the tea tray and flap jacks helped to make it a warm welcome after your snowy journey.
We hope to welcome you again before long
Very best wishes
We learned a lot about Herfordshire!
The Cottage, garden & vegetable/fruit garden are amazing is complete and comfortable. Jenny & Co are very kind and helpful. The public gardens nearby are impressive, also the many large trees and hedges. The Brexit is a 'pain dossier' for people and divide the people and the countries in the UK, we observed. The roads are from '3rd world country quality', we noticed. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the 2 weeks holidays!!
Beautiful and Stunning Location
A really beautiful property, with considerable care and attention to detail -everything is both pristine and stylish. We had a great week, and Jenny and Max are on hand if you need any ideas on days out. The location is peaceful and yet convenient. Recommended !!!
Totally comfortable and totally relaxing.
Over the years my wife and I have stayed at quite a few self catering cottages, many of which are adjoined to or on the grounds of the owners. However this is the first one that I’d really like to return to. The others were good but this one is great. Totally comfortable and totally relaxing. The owners are the friendly, accommodating and genuine sort that are so easy to get on with. The little extras like sending our son’s matchbox cars to us through the post when we thought we had lost them for good, speaks volumes.
The deceptively spacious cottage is appropriately furnished and the kitchen includes everything you could need - even cookery books! The main bed is so nice it’s difficult to get out of. The baths deep enough to really enjoy a good soak and the gardens are beautiful to wander through.
Our weeks stay in Watchmakers cottage
This was my wife and myself's first visit to Ross on Wye and we decided to stay in the Watchmakers cottage which we found to be absolutely fabulous.Spotlessly clean which everything you could possible need with the owners going out of their way to ensure we had a memorable holiday. Can highley recommend this cottage and if we are in the area again we will certainly head to the watchmaker.
Perfect holiday cottage
We were made extremely welcome on arrival. A cream tea awaited us, and Jenny picked us a bowl of fresh plums from the kitchen garden behind the cottage whilst we settled in. The cottage is cosy, thoughtfully equipped, and furnished to a high standard. So often the second bedroom is a bit of an afterthought in holiday cottages, but this isn't the case at Watchmakers. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens and views surrounding the house, and although set in peaceful countryside, it is not far from main roads, so it's a perfect spot to head off and explore the surrounding counties. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day.
