We stayed at No 4 Foalies Bridge earlier this month and honestly cannot speak highly enough of the comfortable cottage as well as the friendliness and helpfulness of the Manager Kevin and his wife Charmain - they couldn't have been more welcoming!
"Cottage" is an understatement as all the houses in Foalies Bridge are large, 4 double bedroomed family homes with 3 bathrooms. Kevin and Charmain live in Foalies Bridge themselves so are directly on hand should there be any issues & manage several of the cottages on the estate.
The cottage itself has a large fully equipped modern kitchen & dining area and a very comfortable lounge with sliding doors to a large garden with outdoor seating, BBQ etc. We appreciated the upstairs sofa and TV on the landing. We loved the skylights and the beautiful views and our particular cottage backed directly onto the river, which was a real treat.
We live in a village in the Cotswolds in England so live in the country ourselves but Foalies Bridge is truly in the countryside on a beautiful river. It would be perfect for fishing and boating, all directly on hand.
We cannot wait to return, hopefully later this summer but do go, you won't be disappointed.
I'm nearly loathed to tell anyone about this little piece of heaven but that would be unfair to Kevin, who really looked after us. We had a few days holiday over the mid term break and decided to take a few days away. Foalies Bridge is only 11/2 hours drive away so easy enough to get to, the last 3 miles are interesting but worth it, you really are out of the way but handy enough to shops and restaurants. But if you bring all your supplies with you, you won't want to leave. The house is really comfortable and well equipped. The back garden leads right down to the rivers edge, so there was lots of fishing done, some mornings even before breakfast and because it at the bottom of the garden the kit could be left for meal breaks.
There's enough space for the kids, there's even another T.V. space up in the landing so no arguments! Great place for a few days away.
