I stayed in Dee's Cottage at Brinsop for a week in March. Everything was perfect, from the warm fresh bread and lemon sponge cake and homemade granola left for me in the window sill; to the charming, exposed-beam-&-brick but expertly updated lodging itself; to the beyond-hospitable welcome I received from Tim and Abby (and friendly labs Walter & Bernie). The White House and grounds (fish pond! amazing country views in all directions) are, bar none, the nicest place I have ever stayed in my twenty years of visiting England on research trips and vacation. I can't wait to bring my wife and daughters back to show them.
My trip was meant as a writing retreat, combined with with local rambling in the area around. The grocery and takeaways (asian, fish & chips) at Credenhill, 1 mile away, plus the Bell Inn Pub at Tillington, were sufficient for most of my needs; though on a few days I made the easy 5 mile trip into Hereford City Centre (for Cathedral Close visits, excellent Thai, medieval site-visits, and real ale at Lichfield Vaults). Afternoons were spent walking around Brinsop and nearby Credenhill and Breinton--all exceptionally beautiful and restorative to wander through. Parish churches at each place were a real highlight (I'm a medievalist, so the local history is compelling--and Tim is a bona fide source, especially on the architectural renovation side). If I hadn't been fighting a sinus/chest infection I brought with me, I'd have gone running in what were perfect surroundings. At dusk I'd sit at different spots in the meadow by the pond with a local cider to consider.
The property itself was exceptionally well-kept, with all amenities in perfect order. I'd have happily cooked more if my spouse were along (fridge had milk, juice, butter, and cheese waiting for me; and the kitchen set-up overall was excellent: stove & oven & microwave/toaster/cutlery/dishes etc). When (not if) I come back, I'd stay again in Dee's Cottage if it were just the spouse and me, but go upstairs to the other unit (same excellent layout, but one more bedroom--I got a tour) if the kids come too.
All in all, then: a really REALLY wonderful, restorative, beautiful and well-laid out lodging and thus visit. Tim and Abby have got a GREAT thing going here, which I can't recommend enough (or stop writing about, apparently!).
