“Fantastic dog friendly retreat. ”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This place is beautiful. It's nestled amongst an apple orchard (the owner lets you eat the apples) in a beautiful part of the Wye Valley. The views from the patio out to the valley were amazing.

The surrounding area is wonderful for walking and there are loverly woodland walks on your door step. There is no need to drive once your there. There are four/five good pubs in walking distance (depends on your appetite for walking). If you like your castles there are seven, yes seven within a short drive along with the Abbey at Tintern.

The accommodation is good. Comfortable bed, great shower and a fully fitted kitchen. Even internet if you can't switch off.

The owners were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended for couples, dog owners and a small family. We will definitely be going back.

“Enjoyable family break”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Louise and Rob are excellent hosts and we were made to feel very welcome. Fresh eggs and apple jam were waiting on the dining table when we arrived. The children enjoyed feeding the chickens and geese and exploring the woods around the area. The cottage is lovely and cosy and enjoys fantastic views over the valley. Will definitely return for another break.

“Peaceful nook in an orchard among the woods”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is a lovely small stone cottage set in a peaceful orchard away from the road. Louise our host was very welcoming and went out of her way to arrange the furniture for our young baby so we could set up a travel cot. It was great to see the hens and geese each morning and soak up the country air.

“Incredibly peaceful”

Although I live in a rural area, I didn't realise how much constant background noise there is around us until I stayed at Highlands Cottage. It is so quiet at night, and with no light pollution, that it's almost other worldly. That it's peaceful is an understatement.
A small group of us stayed there in early July, with my husband and myself staying in the cottage and the rest of our group camping nearby. The cottage is lovely - the kitchen is well equipped with everything you'd need, and there was even a box of newly laid eggs from the family's hens waiting for us. The wet room is huge and very clean, the living area is extremely comfortable with sofas, table and chairs, a TV and DVDs, and the bedroom is spacious with a double bed and bunk beds. We had the double bed, whilst our 3 year old grandson slept in the top bunk in our room which was such a treat that it pretty much made his holiday! Although I think he was also thrilled with the amount of (safe) space in which to run around - real country, not just a city park.
Outside there is a well-furnished patio with far reaching views. It's a great sun trap too. Rob and Louise were excellent hosts, in the loosest sense of the word, as whilst they checked that we had everything we needed and gave advice on walks and pubs, they were never hovering or intrusive. Talking of pubs, there are two within a short distance, walkable if you feel energetic, which do excellent value home-cooked food, so even though there are good kitchen facilities, there's no need to cook if you don't want to.
We loved the quiet and the feeling of total relaxation. We will certainly return in the near future.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Spent a glorious weekend with 20 & 7 year old daughters in Highlands Cottage. Cottage is picturesque with stunning views from peaceful elevated location. I'd have been happy to sit out on the patio all day but we did some exploring too - pleasant 10K run from the Cottage as well as acres of woodland. Colocation of campsite makes for great flexibility & exciting exploring for 7 year old. Louise (Cobb) genuinely committed to ensuring a great experience. Would love to stay for longer some other time.

“Great accomodation in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Had a great stay at this lovely cottage which has the advantage of its own patio area overlooking beautiful countryside.Located in a tranquil position ,with numerous walks close by for us and the dog to enjoy,but still close to other facilities. We found the owners to be friendly and accommodating,even bringing us some sun loungers,so that we could better enjoy the glorious weather which we were lucky enough to have for the entire week. We hope to return.
