We stayed at the Old Stables, it’s all on one floor & has 2 rooms, a double & a twin, both with en-suite. The accommodation was clean, tidy & quiet, just what we wanted. We visit Hereford regularly & usually stay in a hotel but this summer decided to branch out a bit & with this accommodation we could also bring an elderly family member with us. The area is scenic & not far from Hereford. We will definitely be back! We’d highly recommend 😊

The property is so well equipped, it was a pleasure to stay there. The beds were very comfortable and it was lovely to sit outside and listen to the water flowing along the river. I would absolutely recommend this accommodation to any of my friends who wanted to visit this area and if I ever return to this part of England I shall only come when I can stay once again at the Old Stables.Book it. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely property that slept 4 in 2 rooms very comfortably. The ensuite bathrooms have great shower heads and lots of hot water. The kitchen/living area has everything you need including a dishwasher and overlooks a stream. Everything was Sparkling clean. We were staying overnight for a wedding and wish we had more time to enjoy the accommodation, the views and the area. Certainly hope to return next year.

The ground level converted stables was very clean and designed well. It is in a lovely setting alongside the River Lugg. The bi fold doors when open brings in the outside. A little hedgehog visited us several nights. We saw ducks, wild rabbits, sheep, a little mouse, squirrels and most surprisingly a snake swimming from one side of the riverbank to the other. It was really good that both bedrooms had their own ensuites. The settee is an unusual shape and we found it quite uncomfortable. Also be aware that the local pubs are all closed on Monday and Tuesday!

Thank you for the great review, so glad you got to see the wonderful wildlife in Bodenham. I am sorry you found the sofa uncomfortable, but hopefully we will see you in the future.

Our family enjoyed our mini-break in Bodenham. What a pretty English village, and great local pub, close to Hereford and Leominster too. The Old Stables is very clean and comfortable; it's right on the river, the children even saw an otter! Thank you Salma for the extra bits we asked for, it really made our stay relaxing. Cant recommend enough. Booked next year already.

Lovely location to relax and explore the area. Sadly the interior was not relaxing! The interior is in need of painting in some areas and the sofa was very stained and not comfortable or easy to sit on. Sadly a location we will not be visiting again

Lovely place to stay. Clean and comfortable with plenty of space. Perfect location for exploring Herefordshire. Only niggle is you cant sit in the small garden by the river for long because it is soft earth covered with bark chippings and chairs just slowly sink into the mud. Such a shame because it would be a lovely place to while away more time. Other than that it was lovely and will definitely return. Owners live close by but are unobtrusive and really friendly and helpful. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Quiet location near to Hereford, the Wye Valley and the Black Mountains in Wales. The property is clean, spacious and well decorated with its own private riverside garden area.Communications with the owner, Salma, were always fast. Would recommend to friends.

Absolutely beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean and furnished with everything you will need. Located in a gorgeous village with a very friendly pub just down the lane that serves excellent food. Salma is the perfect host ..... cannot recommend this property and owner highly enough !

Location was beautiful, stunning views and scenery on your doorstep.. Accommodation was perfect, very clean and very comfortable. Great decor... Warm and welcoming with views of the river and the odd rabbit and squirrel! Ideal base to visit the Malverns, Hereford, Ledbury and Great Malvern, Tenbury Wells great little historical town to stop and enjoy a cup of coffee and piece of cake! Further afield Shrewsbury and Ludlow is a must to visit... This is the second year we have stayed at Bodenham Forge, staying at the Old Smithy last year also a beautiful idyllic set cottage with everything you need to switch off and just relax... Salma and Paul our hosts are lovely warm welcoming people and would definately go back and stay again...
