‘Another lovely stay at Granary Cottage.  Great weather for walks to Arthur’s Stone and Snodhill Castle – both with fantastic views.  Also visited Weir Gardens, Oakchurch Farm Shop for icecream and a browse, walked along river with lunch at the Blue Boar and then went round newly renovated Castle in Hay.  Food and welcome at The Pandy exceptional.  The Bridge in Michaelchurch also worth a visit.  Looking forward to planning our next visit!.’  SA – August ’22

Eating at the Pandy Inn was also a pleasure – Curry and Quiz night quite an experience.  The Cottage is very homely and welcoming and very well equipped.  Very good location for walking and friendly village – had coffee and cake in the community hub’.

‘Our son lives in Dorstone so we know it well. However, this time we have come away with friends so decided to rent Granary Cottage.  We have not be disappointed!  It has been a short pre-Christmas break which we have all enjoyed.  We enjoyed our usual visit to the Pandy and the usual welcome!   Although it has been cold (well it is December!) we were pleased to experience the clear night sky and wonderful display of the Milky Way!   DB – Dec 2021

‘First stay in Granary Cottage and found it to be absolutely superb, clean and very comfortable.  Revisiting the area as  lived in Madley 7 years ago. Lovely to see Dorstone hasn’t changed a bit!  Would recommend the Pandy Inn – amazing fruity chicken curry.  Thank you for everything.  GS – Nov 2021

‘Another wonderful visit – the fourth so far. Managed some lovely walks – Snod Hill Castle, Peterchurch, and Cusop Dingle (apparently one of the last places left to find fairies in England and Wales. We didn’t see any!)  Also visited some old favourites – Wye Valley, Offa’s Dyke, The Warren and Begwyns.  Still so much more to see … just might have to come back again’.  Thanks.  IG – Nov 2021

‘We have lost count of the number of visits we have now made! After a 2 year gap because of illness and lockdown, we have enjoyed our time here as much as ever – a lovely cosy cottage with all we need, set in a favourite part of the country.  Sunny dry weather has been a bonus, making our trips to Hay, our Kilvert car tours and some gently rambles most enjoyable. WM – Sept 2021

‘An excellent third visit, the weather was kind to us with virtually no rain.  We walked the equivalent of 2 marathons and thoroughly enjoyed it.  We can recommend The Nags Head in Peterchurch and Sunday lunch at the Pandy Inn, just round the corner.  No doubt we’ll be back again in the not too distant future. IG – Aug 2021
