Lovely area and cottage, bus stop right outside the front door. Hot tub was bliss, we were made to feel very welcome and The smart TV is a great feature.

Mrs Hunter, Nottingham, February 2014

Bronte Cottage is a pleasant and clean place that was very welcoming when we arrived. The owners were there waiting for us and instantly made us feel at home. It was ideally located for our trips out and there are many walks which are within a short distance. I would recommend Bronte Cottage to family and friends.

Fantastic cottage - had a great stay. Area very beautiful. Excellent meal at the pub. This place is not just a holiday cottage, it is a home. Fantastically equipped and very cosy. A fantastic base for exploring this lovely countryside; Ross on Wye and Forest of Dean. From the moment we met the owner at the cottage door our holiday was guaranteed to be wonderful. An immaculate and perfectly laid out cottage ideal for families. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch as we settled in on day one. The décor is beautiful. Both modern, yet maintaining the traditional charm of this little part of England. It was charming to see the horses trotting by the window. A short break has felt like a long break and we hope to return in the future. A truly lovely place to stay. Pity we couldn't stay longer. Thank you for being perfect hosts and tending to our every need. Hope to see you soon. Kindest Regards Miss Jenks.
