    "It was just a perfect 2 night break. Spotless, welcoming, wonderful grounds. could have stayed much longer. Owner Ellie very nice, nothing too much trouble. The home baked cake was a lovely touch. So much character to the cottage, amazing grounds. I could go on and on. Would definitely recommend"

    "Very quiet place in attractive countryside"

    "We have stayed in nearly 20 cottages in the UK from Northumberland to Dorset. Without doubt the one in the most attractive & enjoyable setting is Long Cover in Worcestershire near Tenbury Wells.Long Cover is a three-bedroomed cottage surrounded by 7 acres of grounds. Occupants have free access to all that space including play areas, woodland, pond, tree house, a "bothy" (farm labourer's hut)  and hammocks. There are four or five outdoor seating areas and a barbecue.  There is a quirky, highly personal feel to the surroundings reflecting the labour of love that the property obviously is.Indoors, on the ground floor, the cottage features a well-equipped kitchen (including an Aga), six- seater dining area, a very comfortable living room and a comfortable double bedroom. There is a bathroom including a bath and separate shower. Upstairs there is a double bedroom, twin room and (tiny) toilet. Each room  continues the individualistic theme of the entire site.Long Cover cottage housed 5 people (and a terrier!) very comfortably and warmly. We were welcomed  personally by the owner Eleanor with a smile and a welcome hamper including a delicious home-made cake.But the real emphasis-and the reason I would  unhesitatingly recommend Long Cover, is the beautiful surroundings  . Long Cottage is almost half a mile off any road. It is very isolated and commands a panoramic view of the beautiful local countryside. If you want hustle & bustle I suggest you look elsewhere! You are however within twenty-odd miles of Hereford, Worcester, Hay-on-Wye, Leominster and Ludlow. Tenbury Wells and Eastnor Castle are much nearer. Our party included two teenagers and within 15 miles drive we were able to take them to West Midlands Safari Park and the Time Machine Museum in nearby Bromyard. The ground floor bedroom was ideal for the 87 year old in the party.We were not blessed with good weather or we would have undoubtedly spent more time in the grounds. To prove how much we liked the place, we have already booked a return visit- less that a week after leaving! Do yourselves a favour- visit  Long Cover before it gets too famous. You won't regret it!"

    "This was a beautiful house with all the usual quality that you expect from RR. However, I think there were a couple of things that could have been clearer in the property description: the gardens/grounds are shared with the owners who are right next door and they have children who play ball games and run around. We had no problem with this but some people might have wanted something more peaceful. Secondly, the upstairs toilet is really tiny and a man can't really use it without contorting himself. Even I had to 'fold myself' into it! The bedrooms upstairs have very sloping ceilings, making them also quite uncomfortable for tall people. We were only four people from the same family but I think six would have been a bit cramped given the bathroom facilities. The owner was very friendly and greeted us with cake. The terrace is great for barbecues and the views are truly spectacular though so we had a good time."
