Very well equipped cottage. The heating was so good that we didn't need to use the wood burner. There were only two of us staying so we found we had plenty of space and didn't need to use the upstairs. I think having an extra couple would have been fine - more than that might have been a bit crowded

There is everything you need for a comfortable family holiday here. The attention to detail for guests needs and comfort is much appreciated. Lovely to spend time in the garden watching the birds queuing for the feeder. Would recommend to anyone looking for a base in the Wye Valley for a family get together.

The house is everything you could want for a holiday home, spacious and comfortable with a great range of equipment. The views from the house are lovely across the flood plain of the Wye towards Symonds Yat. The road is busy which makes it noisy in the garden, which is a lovely space. The access up to the house is up a steep sharp turn off the roadRead more. Really loved our stay and would book again. Hide
