Durstone Cottage is a large self catering holiday cottage in the heart of rural Herefordshire. Originally two semi-detached farm cottages, which date back over 100 years, Durstone Cottage has been lovingly restored as one large holiday cottage sleeping groups of up to 22 people.
The two self catering holiday cottages are interconnected and rented as one, which gives large groups the flexibility of cooking and eating communally or separately with 2 kitchens, 2 lounges, both with TVs, and a large communal dining room.
