Old Rectory Barn is a gorgeous property and Hilary and Graham are wonderful hosts who are there if you need them. It was perfect for our 3 generation family visiting the area with 2 cars and lots of comings and goings. Everyone had a fantastic time. Thank you.

Cottage owner Hilary very helpful and friendly. The cottage was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed for our week away, including use of the adjoining locked shed to store our bicycles. The area around the cottage was lovely, with footpaths close by and quiet roads for cycling and excellent canoeing on the Wye from Symonds Yat.

We loved it here. The barn was warm, well equipped, and comfortable, and we felt very welcome. Being located right next to fields with livestock, we needed to keep a very close eye on the dogs, but we didnt mind (we loved watching the lambs!). With three households sharing, the layout was, for us, excellent; the two living areas meant we could findRead more space to escape if we needed to, or come together to eat or relax. Altogether excellent! Hide
