“Beautiful views, great people. My home whilst in and around Wales.”

Photographer David Bailey


“We have nothing but heaps of praise for the glorious Dewsall Court. This beautiful house has been thoughtfully converted into a top quality country retreat. Every room is beautifully decorated with outstanding attention to detail. Open fires, oak panelled rooms and beautiful views over Herefordshire make this the perfect romantic getaway. The house and setting perfectly capture the elegance and romance of an English country home, we can think of nowhere more welcoming. Dewsall really is as near to perfect as you’ll get.”

Actors Sarah Parish and James Murray


“First of all, I had no idea it was the first time you were doing the pop up thing. You were all so effortlessly professional. Second, I have often stayed in places purporting to be like being at home or at a friend’s house but staying at Dewsall and being taken such good care of by you all was genuinely the first time that I felt totally comfortable, as if I really were staying with friends. Not only that but the food was exactly what we eat at home only more delicious!

Thanks for all your help with outings too and the lovely last minute picnic…

We will be back!
Love to you all from the Strongs! xx”

Actor Mark Strong and Producer Liza Marshall


“Dewsall is a tonic…like spring water”

John Burton Race


“I recline against cushions on a fat linen sofa beside a huge arrangement of peonies until I’m called for dinner. Know what? This is heaven.”

Sally Shalam in her Guardian review


“I just wanted to say what a wonderful weekend we had. Our guests (the majority of whom travel extensively around the world and stay in 5 star hotels) all thought it was one of the most delightful and wonderful weekend breaks they’ve ever had. The house, the rooms, the fireplaces, the details, the grounds, the delicious food, the amazing staff, the jazzy vicar, the mud that stuck to our cars and reminded us all week where we had been, the Aga, the kitchen ‘at’ back, the team we have dealt with all the way through, the candelabras in the conservatory at dinner, the comfortable beds and gorgeous linen, the crazy baths that our children loved, even the sensitive trip switches all made for beautiful and amazing memories for Ayesha, our children and all of our guests.
What more could I ask for! You’ve done an amazing job creating the perfect business and rental house without it feeling like either. You’ve finally inspired me to go and look for a country weekend cottage! We will be back in the near future, I’m sure. ”

Ross Wheeler, Imagination


“Our wedding at Dewsall was the most wonderful weekend of our lives so far! From the very first phone conversations and meeting with Sam, we were so certain that we had found the right people to work with to make our wedding everything that we had hoped it might be. Dewsall offers exactly what we had in mind, a weekend away in a fabulous, boutique venue with our nearest and dearest, with a wedding in the middle. Our wedding planner, Sadie, helped us to plan (and execute) everything exactly as we had hoped for and the magnificent food, stunning surroundings and superb accommodation far surpassed our imaginings. I’m sure everyone thinks this about their own wedding, but thanks to Dewsall, we really did have the best wedding I’ve ever been to!”

Simon and Emily, Bristol


“We had a fantastic 60th birthday weekend at Dewsall. The house itself is in a gloriously rural setting. It has bags of character and style yet has a very welcoming feel to it  The bedrooms are all 5 star quality. The food from Dewsall’s own recommended caterers  kept a bunch of committed foodies very happy throughout the stay. Ananda was a model of patience as I agonised over the menus as indeed she was over the details of all the arrangements and everybody there did all they could to make the stay as special as we wanted it to be. In our Christmas messages all our guests said how the stay at Dewsall was the highlight of their year. Happy to recommend it unconditionally.”

Michael Ridley


“We can’t thank you and the entire Dewsall team enough for our incredible wedding weekend- it was a triumph!!!! Everyone at the house thought they were in a dream world for a few days…. and we can’t thank you and your team for this! I can’t believe three months ago today was the day we left Dewsall!”

Nik and Guj


“James and I are very well and I cannot believe this Saturday will be a month since we got married… we still want to re live it every day… long may that last…

We would love to return to Dewsall one day and I sincerely hope we will – everybody loved it and said it was magical, we feel so lucky.”

Laura and James 


“Thanks very much. It was a fantastic wedding and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”

Lisa and Dan 


“It seems crazy that it has been over a week since the big day! It was all absolutely perfect and we can’t thank you enough for helping to pull it all together! ”

Charlotte and Pete


” … reminiscing about our fantastic weekend at Dewsall.  Thank you so much for all your help and assistance on the day and in the run-up to the event.  Everyone absolutely loved it!”

Sean and Carl


“Thanks again for everything- the whole weekend was wonderful!”

Dan and Jenny


“We can’t believe our wedding was three weeks ago!! Where has that time gone! Some fantastic memories of a wonderful occasion.”

Steph and Matteo 


“The room and public areas were beautifully appointed and our bedroom was very comfortable – light and well positioned within the building with views from two sides. The breakfast was great, especially the eggs which were so fresh. We liked everything about it.”

Craig Markham, Firmdale Hotels


“A really special place in such a beautiful location. Really nice to see that you have still kept all the identity, character and charm. ”

Sam Cattel, Quintessentially


“We can’t express to you all how wonderful it was to have such a dedicated, good hearted, excited, yet laid back team of truly amazing people to be there for us throughout our whole wedding weekend. The venue is mind blowing – pictures cannot do it justice. Our guests described it as a fairy tale and said that when they woke up for work on Monday it would feel like it was all a dream. It really was a dream for Patrick and I, a weekend we will hold dear to our hearts the rest of our lives. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I can’t even begin to count all the behind the scenes details you all coordinated to make our wedding day so special and intimate. I felt nothing but love. Now I feel even more blessed to get to know such thoughtful and kind people. Your family is so beautiful, we wish you all success and joy in your Dewsall endeavours and in life.”

Betsy and Patrick – the treehouse couple!


“It was absolutely superb; we loved it… I could try to embellish that, but honestly it was faultless: A unique experience to be at such a fantastic venue and looked after with such care and attention by such lovely people.”

David Jones, Fromental


“You have done a wonderful job in converting the house, making it extremely comfortable but without losing its unique character.The bedrooms and bathrooms have been done up beautifully. You could not have been more attentive to us but without intruding in any way, so that we really did feel that for two days it was our home. We were delighted with the meals you provided to us, the breakfasts were excellent and the dinner on the Friday was a great success.”

Christopher Leslie, Dewsall’s first ever guest
