“Lovely cottage in the heart of the countryside.....”

people found this review helpful

We stayed at River cottage with my elderly mother, daughter and grandchildren (6 of us in total). The cottage is simply lovely and equipped with everything you could possibly need. For walkers it is ideally positioned for stunning walks from the doorstep.Further afield there are lovely towns to visit with just a short drive. Just one word of advice..... if anyone in your party has mobility issues it would be best to contact the owners to check suitability for you. I did not do this and wished I had as my mother struggled with the layout.

“A lovely break away”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a lovely weekend at the cottage. It was very clean, very well equipped and nicely decorated. The situation is fantastic with the small river flowing just at the bottom of the garden. Our boys (7 and 5) enjoyed continuing to fill in their 50 things to do before you're 11 and 3/4 scrap books and filled in the bird watching (so many different types can be seen), creating a dam, making a raft and climbing a tree.

We visited Hay-On-Wye, Hereford and then Big Pit on our way home.

I would love to return in the summer and autumn when I'm sure it will be even more beautiful.

“Peaceful, rural retreat. Truly a home from home.”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A lovely, spotlessly clean, well presented cottage. Very well furnished and cosy property - truly a home from home, and excellently equipped. Friendly hosts, nothing too much trouble, but not intrusive. A peaceful retreat in a relaxing location right next to the River Monnow. Beautiful scenery and many walks easily accessible from the cottage. Farmhouse restaurant just up the road and an excellent local pub within a couple of miles.
All in all, a fantastic break in a beautiful part of the country.
