Beautiful, comfortable cottage with everything we needed for a super break away. The underfloor heating with the stone flags was very cosy and we loved the dining room and snug sitting room. We really enjoyed the peaceful location and all the walks from the house and the safe fenced in garden was a boon for the dogs.

If you are looking for peace and tranquility, then look no further! The cottage is warm with plenty of hot water and a decent shower in the en suite. The views are extensive and the garden is enclosed, with barbecue, and sun loungers and a fire pit too, although we werent able to get to use it due to the weather! The owners were attentive to our neRead moreeds, and respectful of privacy. Would recommend! Hide

Set in a stunning location. Perfect to really get away from the frenetic pace of life. So peaceful. Lovely walks on your doorstep. Not too far for cycling, kayaking, Go Ape etc (approx 30 mins). Tintern Abbey followed by a walk up to the Devil's Pulpit is well worth it and very close to the cottage. The host's very kindly let the kids feed ther pigRead mores and play with their dog Basil. They were very welcoming but discreet. We had an absolutely brilliant week. Hide

It was definitely worth travelling all that way from Germany to this lovely cottage. A beautifully restored building, tastefully equipped. Comfortable beds, secluded garden to relax in with our dog and friendly Basil, the owners dog who visited us from time to time. We will most certainly try to come back. Claire and Ludger Storp

Beautiful cottage with fantastic views of the Welsh countryside. Comfortable spaces and quiet location, making it the ideal place for a peaceful city getaway. The house is only three hours away from London and close to fantastic walks in the Wye Valley. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and excellent bed linen. I was concerned that it was a dogRead more-friendly cottage, but the house was clean with no traces of previous people or pets. I would love to go back again. Hide
