Really lovely cottage with the best view and the friendliest hosts. Lots of attractions for the outdoorsy family. Mountain bilking, junior go ape and beautiful walks from the door.
We were greeted by a heart warming sign 'slow free range kids about'as we drove up to Highlands Cottage :). We've been looking forward to our 4 day break in the Wye Valley. Louise met us at her cosy cottage with a warm smile & left us with freshly baked bread, fresh eggs & apple juice from her orchard..
Delicious!! Highlands Cottage is a lovely cosy cottage for 4, has all you need for your self catering stay. You'd need to go to the nearest bigger town for groceries. There are walks you can do in the area, get your walking boots on & explore. We did that with our two kids. We met Rob on the second day, who like Louise was very welcoming & at hand if we needed anything. There were chickens & ducks about, our kids enjoyed exploring the cottage & grounds.
All in we enjoying our stay & would have loved to stay longer. Will definately return for sure. Many Thanks Louise & Rob for your warm hospitality. Hope to visit again :), Best wishes, Samantha & Michael.
Lovely cosy cottage with easy access to nearby towns & countryside. Monmouth is great for shops and restaurants. The Lion Inn nearby does great food. Fabulous walks from the property - who could want for more. We stayed for 4 nights and were very comfortable with 3 adults, would be no problem for 2 adults & 2 children or just a couple. All amenities covered, just food for the stay needed.
My family and I had a wonderful 12 day stay at highland cottage. The cottage was clean, cute and warm. My little ones loved he bunk beds. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast outside in the patio and watched chicken and ducks. The kids absolutely loves collecting eggs.
Rob and Louise were in communication our whole trip to make sure that we had everything we needed. They also treated us to some fresh bread and apple juice. Such a treat.
The location couldn’t be better. Area of outstanding natural beauty. We explored castles, Tintern Abbey, the Big Pit, Forest of Dean and little hikes around their house.
It was a truly magical stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
The cottage is very cosy and has absolutely everything you need for a peaceful break! The location is very convenient to visit castles, forests and to go for lovely walks around the area. We were particularly pleased with the fact that the children were able to safely run around the cottage surroundings playing on the swing, chasing the chickens and ducks and just generally enjoying country life! We have an electric car and Louise and her husband were very generous and helpful providing us with an insulated extension lead for us to charge the car overnight. Thank you, Louise!
Relaxing weekend spent in a well appointed cottage in a lovely rural setting yet with in easy reach of Monmouth. Rob and Louise were friendly and helpfull throughout our stay. Unusually for January we had some excellent weather and we were able to sit out on the patio overlooking an orchard. Good range of walks from the door and most of them have a pub at the end. The cottage was clean and comfortable with everything needed for our stay as well as some thoughtful extras such as homemade bread and apple juice as well as eggs from the friendly chickens . Excellent base for exploring the Wye Valley.
