  • "Very tired, run down cottage."

    Lots of repairs needed. Furniture needs updating. Boiler powered by plug in to socket which was on a timer for the hot water. Upstairs floorboards very creaky. Toilet and shower very basic and requires attention.

    It would be nice if you had told us what repairs were needed as we inspect it often and would fix anything that you brought to our attention. The boiler is a new boiler and heating system that can be switched off by a switch on the wall as all boilers can. We do ask you not to switch this off. The heating is on a timer but the hot water is instant as it is a combi boiler. It is an old converted barn so has a few quirky features it is not a new build. In future please let the owners know when you are there so that they can fix any issues and not after you have left. Many thanks Alison and Phil Property Owner

  • "Location was perfect and car parking, garden,and cottage size were excellent."

    Plenty of pots pans cutlery crockery glasses etc. Great dishwasher and new washing machine. Paintwork of interior walls fresh and carpets pretty ok. However………..curtains….kitchen units…..beds…..bedding ….felt very “tired”. Window did not open in one bedroom and suspect all windows needed replacement……again….pretty tired. Brown wood throughout which gave a rather depressing feel to the place. Much of the furniture felt very old fashioned and un co-ordinated. The brown beems and brown old built in wardrobes and kitchen units, again, gave a rather depressing feel. Quite a few black beetles were in kitchen and bathroom during the week and suspect a small infestation behind the kitchen units/drainage? Worst thing was the dreadful creaking floorboards throughout the whole floor upstairs. That really does need to be sorted out. We had a great week……( two guys)…….loved the cottage layout and we sort of…”got used to it!”. But….suspect some families may not have been quite so happy! To make it really sharp and comfortable I would suggest it needs: Upstairs floor sorted to get rid of dreadful squeaking New window units. ( identical cottage next door had been done) Kitchen units painted ( even white would be fine). Bedroom wardrobes painted inside and out New curtains, bedding and beds Sort out the beetle infestation problem Perhaps think about co ordinated furniture? It could be a really cracking cottage but it does,I suspect, need quite a lot of money spending in it.

  • "Although the cottage was generally clean it was not what I would call a "deep clean" but a surface clean with spray cleaners rather than soap and water which leave surfaces sticky to the touch."

    There were insects everywhere dead and alive and the glass shade of the bathroom appeared to have a particularly large spider inside. This was very unsettling for a member of the party who has arachnaphobia.

  • "A lovely cottage with lots of practical touches which made it very easy to start the holiday immediately on arrival."

    Very helpful owners with a can do attitude. We spent four days paddling down the Wye river and the cottage was well situated for this venture.

  • "There were no issues per se with the cottage, it was fine."

    It was just obviously a rental cottage. Little things like the tv remote was broken, no remote for the DVD, bedding and pillows were old. Not a complaint as such, just a pointer as to how the stay could have been made better!

    There were 5 of us, but the cottage only had 3 mugs and the tea cups were very small Could have done with one more comfortable chair

  • "It would have been useful if the owners had left information booklets about the appliances in the kitchen when they purchased them - we never did get to work the microwave!"

    Incredibly creaky floors throughout the upstairs so it was good to go to bed at the same time as each other. Other guests mentioned this in the comments book in the cottage, but I don't know what could be done about that. Otherwise a delightful cottage and comfy and warm beds.

  • "Lovely old coach house cottage retaining original features in a quiet location close to many points of interest."

    Single beds on the small side and lots of creaky floorboards upstairs so not good if your a light sleeper and have other guests who need the bathroom regularly through the night!! No back garden area therefore it would have been nice if the grass area at front of the property had been maintained to allow good usage. But overall a very pleasant cottage which is well equipt for self catering.

  • "Beech Cottage is an excellent holiday destination - nestled in the countryside, yet close to Ross on Wye, the cottage sits in it's own little sun-trap."

    An oasis of calm and an ideal base to relax after days out exploring the many castles, caves and hills of the Welsh / English border. Beautiful. We loved it and only wish we could have stayed longer. Hope to return soon!
