Stayed here for a week with hubby and two little ones. Rosie made us very welcome, cottage was clean, bright and had all the bits and pieces you want for a holiday rental. Very reasonable too - delighted!!

“The most charming and generous hosts, in an idyllic setting”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed in the cottage for 2 weeks on personal business. Our hosts, Rosie, Simon, their children, horses and dogs, made us feel exceptionally welcome and went out of the way to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as possible... even going as far as taking care of our dog, giving us tips on where to buy wellies, and helping us extend our stay by a night at the last minute. The loft was warm, self-contained, calming and had excellent tv and wifi so we could work from there when we needed to. Plenty of hot hot water, and fluffy beds. We'll definitely stay there again - every time we're on the other side of the Severn Bridge!

“Nice Quiet Location”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Very Friendly Owners and their 3 dogs! Accommodation was well presented, but the downstairs bedroom was very dark and much colder than the rest of the property. Small grouses were, bathroom door didnt lock, only 2 teaspoons in cutlery drawer and downstairs bedroom door didnt shut due to misalignment. Otherwise, fine.
