5/5 Excellent

As described! I will definitely go back.
This property is a stunning cottage, in a stunning setting - anyone looking for a quiet get-away, in a secluded location won't be disappointed. It is a long drive up narrow country lanes and there are a lot of steps down to the property - but the view from the front terrace (and all the windows) makes it worth it. The cottage is very comfortable - comfortable bed, good shower, good wifi connection. I will definitely go back!

Beautiful views
Fabulous, comfortable cottage with everything you need and more provided. Setting is amazing, altho hard work to & from the cottage but good for a work out! Walks from the door in beautiful scenery - woodlands, river all within easy reach. A couple pubs within walking distance which serve food & are very dog friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to return

Fantastic little cottage, stunning views! If you are looking for an adventure this is perfect
Lovely little cottage that had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The location is fantastic and the views are absolutely stunning. I will miss dining out on that terrace! The kids loved the swing and playing hide and seek in the grounds. Lots of beautiful walks on your doorstep and so many excellent local places to keep the kids happy (Perry Grove steam train, Forest of Dean, Raglan and Goodwood castles, Wye Valley butterfly farm to name a few). Canoeing on the river Wye was also a highlight. Some great pubs in walking distance too 😊 Certainly one of the most adventurous and unique places we have ever stayed. Make sure you switch off the sat nav and follow the detailed directions given, as some of the tiny lanes are certainly very tight for large cars. Absolutely worth the effort though for such a dreamy location. The steps down to the cottage are steep, and were a bit of a struggle for our 4 year old, but she rose to challenge admirably! I wouldn't let her do them on her own though, so that might be something to bare in mind, however this is all made very clear in the property description. We would also return in a heart beat!

Lovely property
Had 3 night stay . Lovely property with stunning views . Spotlessly clean with everything you could want for a perfect stay . Very nice owners . Area generally is beautiful and perfect for great walks . The minus for it is it’s location. Very isolated and certainly not suitable for the elderly and anyone with limited mobility . To get from where car was parked and the property there are approximately 55 steep steps Downwards . Then the same amount to get back to the car . When we arrived the owner carried our bags down . Coming home made 5 journeys up with small bags and packed suitcase in the car. If you like peace, and quiet in insolation then this is the perfect place

Check-in details and instruction were really clear and sent well before arrival. There are a lot of steps down to the property but this is clearly highlighted in the advert and are as described. Jan & Graham did off help in getting our things down the stops but we didn't any. It also means that the place is quite secluded and private with amazing views and lots of walks from the front door. All the basics are provided (oils condiments, milt, tea etc) as well as some lovely welsh cakes and a bottle of wine. The wi-fi is good and the TVs smart and a range of games. The place was spotlessly clean with lots of information walks and local area as well as how to use the appliances. The place is very warm and there is a small burner in each of the downstairs rooms. The space is relatively small but is an old property with lots of character and was perfect for what we wanted.

Hidden gem
Beautiful cottage hidden in the hills. Perfect for a family of 4 and our dog. The kids and dog had fun running around the grounds. We had some deer in the garden at one point. -Beds super comfortable -Kitchen well equipped inc dishwasher and washing machine -Cosy lounge area with log burner -Views amazing Once you find the short cuts it doesn’t take long to get to the river and pub! Loads of great walks on your doorstep so you don’t have to drive We went to Symonds Yat Rock, Puzzle Wood, King Arthur’s Cave, played crazy golf, lots of walks, & Goodrich Castle. Went home via Tintern Abbey. The steps are steep from the parking area to the cottage and from the cottage to the river but we are fairly fit and didn’t have any issues. They are well lit too with flood lights in the dark. The kids sprinted up and down no problem, like mountain goats. The roads up to the cottage are narrow so be cautious . We definitely want to come back, my husband would live there, if he could. Thank you for an amazing stay, we will be back.

Symonds Yat. Great location, fantastic walks, amazing scenery.
The property we stayed in had amazing views of the valley. Although many steep steps to get to and from with our luggage, it was well worth it once we were settled in. The cottage itself was equipped with everything we needed. Cosy warm and comfortable. We got lucky with the weather and enjoyed breakfast on the terrace. Lots of walks from the doorstep, with lots of maps to guide you. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lovely cottage with beautiful views
Lovely little cottage with amazing views. The walk/hill down to the local pub and/or up to your car certainly make you feel like you’ve had a work out but the views are worth it! This cottage is certainly not recommended for the faint hearted or with mobility issues!
