Excellent in many ways: a quiet location, a good starting point for walks (with directions by the owners), a friendly welcome, comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, a cosy living room, in splendid surroundings. We (a family of eight adult Belgian tourists) utterly enjoyed our stay.

Shoppe Barn is spacious, warm and comfortable. The beds were wonderful and so were the lounge sofas (It's also cooler down there in the warm weather). As we were working we didn't venture out much but it was a delight to wake to just the sound of birds and the breeze and delight in the peace and quiet.

A lovely, cosy place to stay, very warm and full of character. Plenty of hot water and a generous amount of wood included for the stove. We had a very enjoyable weekend as a group of friends, walking from barn and further afield, visiting Symonds Yat, swimming in the Wye, and completing the Three Castles Walk.

The house was ideal for our holiday with 5 adults and 2 young girls (and a dog).. We had loads of space and enjoyed the dingle where there was a slide , play house and swings. Beautiful area and I definitely recommend the walk to the waterfall but check when the ice cream parlour is open!

We had a great stay here over Christmas. We were two families of four and one dog. The property is very clean and very well equipped. The layout is great to give children space to play and the kitchen has a nice seating area. Would love to return here and explore the area.

Lovely location. Really well presented dog-friendly property. Clean tidy and a lovely welcome basket on arrival. Instructions were very clear and good documentation about the house itself and other local amenities. We followed the local walks as recommended by the owner. We had a fantastic time.

We loved Shoppe Cottage! The big kitchen diner was great for our evening meals where we all could cook and chat and eat together. The huge lounge with its comfy sofas and cosy woodburning stove was perfect for movie night and playing games. Bedrooms were comfy (but watch out for those low beams!) and bathrooms generous and clean. We took a lovely wRead morealk from the cottage to the nearby waterfall, enjoyed the sun and the snowdrops but we were just too early for the daffodils! Hide
