    “What a wonderful time we all had in ...”
    What a wonderful time we all had in this beautiful and extremely comfortable cottage. It was amply equipped with everything you could possible need and more! The owner of the cottage was very friendly and made us feel at home. The surroundings are beautiful and there are no ends of things to do/places to see. Would definitely recommend!

This lovely, quaint village stands on the banks of the River Wye, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the wonderful Wye Valley, and borders the Royal Forest of Dean. The famous Goodrich Castle is situated within the village, a perfect example of a 12th century “Marcher Castle”. Nestling amidst the village’s picturesque houses are the delightful village hall, friendly shop and two friendly pubs serving good food. Close by, overlooking a large loop in the River Wye, is the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, in the heart of rural Herefordshire. This attractive town has timbered Tudor houses clustered around the striking 17th century Market Hall, and there are excellent shops, pubs and restaurants to suit every taste.
