Guest Reviews


    • “A restful, pleasant and enjoyable holiday”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The Pines is a well equipped and comfortable cottage with wonderful views. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. We were close to Ross on Wye and the Forest of Dean was literally outside the gate which was perfect for our dog! We spent a very enjoyable day at Symonds Yat which we would all recommend for a visit. We took my elderly parents with us and The Pines was perfect for them as well as it is a bungalow and all on one level. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and cannot think of anything we didn't like, except perhaps for the weather!”

    • “The party included 2 dogs. Location for both walks and a safe garden are always high on the priority list. This plus a convenient area to wipe them clean before they come indoors makes all the difference to our ability to relax and enjoy ourselves. The Pines scored top marks all round.”
