Country Houses to Rent in England - Hereford/Worcester

I am looking for a really top quality country house/cottage to rent for my Mum's 70th Birthday in the Hereford/Worcester/Cotswolds. Does anyone know any good companies that do this sort of thing - it would be great if they can arrange catering as well for one evening.

How about this one

www.hidays.co.uk has a good search facility and does lots of bigger houses

Having a far too close relationship with the owners of the houses in whitchurch/Symonds Yat I wouldn't recommend them. the one with the pool is very hard to access and not esp. safe with kids (the pub mentioned is a dive), you also have about 6 Amsterdam style barges going past full of tourists all day, everyday.

Other house has nice views of the A road down to Cardiff.

Sorry CD, don't mean to offend, just one of those weird moments when you know far too much about somewhere!

It's for 10 people plus separate baby room (I can't sleep with ds in my room - too snuffly!)so looking for six bedrooms.

CD - I thought those two looked really great and got quite excited. But the inside info from marialuisa has put me off!

I'll have a search on hidays - thanks for that.

marialuisa how weird is that? They look so nice from the outside too! Probably best to get recommendation from someone who has actually been somewhere!

You could maybe try Brian Viner's (writer in the Independent)holiday cottages somewhere in Herefordshire? I haven't been but they sound lovely in his articles!

Trying to think of nicer places in Herefordshire, prefer the north/Golden Valley myself, but it's very rural.

So, do we know Coddy's in-laws??

we might .... it's the sort of place where everybody knows everybody else. If I go for a visit and Mum and I walk through town, she has to stop and talk to about 25 people !! Takes ages to get any shopping done!

Yes, I find it lightly disconcerting to walk through Hightown with DD and see my old teachers!

oiseau, sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread ... I'm afraid that because I lived round there and have family there, I have no idea about houses to rent because I've never had the need.

Please ignore the codfish - it is a lovely part of the world
