We had a fantastic stay at Bredwardine Cottage. It is a beautiful compact home from home, looked after and well cared for by two lovely people. The cottage was spotlessly clean and they provided lots of little extra's and made us feel very welcome and we would not hesitate to recommend this lovely cottage to anyone. We had variable weather but it did not stop us from sight seeing and fishing on the Wye and Usk Foundation brooks and streams and although flooded and fast flowing we were very lucky and managed to catch some wild brown trout and grayling.
From booking the cottage with very friendly and informative assistants, to the stay in delihtful surroundings we could not have wished for a better holiday.-
