“A jewel in the crown in the picturesque hillsides”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

5 star accommodation with everything carefully thought out by the cottage owner. Superb views abound this location along with many places to visit and local pubs to eat in.A visit to The Wye valley is a must . Close to Wales. Lots of exhilerating dog walks . The evening watch of badgers not to be missed.

“Fab few days in the sunshine at lovely Symonds Yat”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a great time here at this superb cottage. It has everything you could need including torches and every kitchen thing to cook a full meal. Comfy beds and everywhere was clean. The owner was really helpful during the whole process. The wildlife is lovely as well. I can't think of anything that could be improved really. The location was great with just a couple of minute walk down to the river. We saw a kingfisher and two perigrine falcons. Overall we had a great few days , helped by the sunshine! We would definitely return here it's fab. We left feeling very relaxed as it's just so peaceful. Thanks very much.

“Fantastic place to go and stay.”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a lovely holiday. Symonds Yat is beautiful. We went Absailing, canoeing and visited Go Ape for the day - there is plenty to do. The cottage is very homely and has everything you need in it. Very clean and well kept in amazing grounds. We saw badgers, foxes, rabbits and pheasants all in our back garden. I recommend this place to anyone and we will hopefully be going again

“Peaceful location, great views and a relaxing time had by all.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Brilliant location for us to attend my brother's surprise 50th birthday celebrations in Monmouth. We visited Symonds Yat rock Forest of Dean, Tintern Abbey, Monmouth, Big Pit at Blaenavon and had gentle strolls along the river each day with dog and dad. The family came to visit us and it felt like home from home. There was everything we needed in the cottage (and more). Leisurely breakfasts watching the foxes and pheasants in the back garden were a delight.

“Lovely Cottage for a family of 4 with Stunning Views.”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We used the Cottage as for Christmas week to visit Family which were very close by. The Cottage was perfect size for the four of us and have everything we needed.
The Cottage is very Clean and Well Kept.

The Views from the Cottage are beautiful and there are plenty of walks and a few local pubs nearby.

We will definitley re-vist perhaps in the Spring and do some more exploring.

This cottage did not disappoint. It had EVERYTHING !!! You did not need to pack away in your car any household item you could think of from cleaning product to a vanity kit !!! It was wonderful. Spent our NYEve with our cava watching the firework display from The Royal Hotel across the river. Best new years eve weve ever had. Peace and quite. Great dog walking. Wildlife of a fox,pheasants,squirrel viewed from kitchen window. We left feeling tranquil and rested .....even out teenage daughter got some sleep instead of nose on the ipad all the time !!!!

“What a great place”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We found the cottage to be spotlessly clean and well equipped. Great cottage with plenty of room for the two of us and our collie.
We all loved the area, beautiful views and loads of walks, we will be back.
Thanks.
