  • "It was a wonderful property that was excellently laid out and well equipped for our group (a school reunion)."

    The view from the living spaces is breathtaking and although on the main road, once in the house it didn’t register at all! Usually we like to go to different places each year but this property is the first that may tempt us to return!! Eclectic but tasteful decor and the fabulous hot tub (inc lighting and sound system) were the icing on the cake. Thank you!

  • "Beautiful views."

    House is just perfect,it has so much character. The beds are comfy, nice soft bedding. The house has so many personal touches and they have tried to contain everything you could possibly need. I would highly recommend. There were 12 of us and we had plenty of room. Hot tub is great. There's also a nice balcony out of dining room, perfect to relax in the evening and watch the sunset. Owner great with communication.

    The gardens are beautiful and as a mixed generation party of 8 we had ample space. The owner was very attentive and on hand when needed. We would certainly recommend Longmynd as a base to visit all the area has to offer.

    We had the best time and the house was absolutely beautiful, everything we could have hoped for and more! The check in process was really easy and the host was contactable during our stay and so kind and helpful! He genuinely seemed to care about making our stay the best it could be.

  • "Stayed here in the summer with 11 other family members of varying ages."

    We loved every minute of our stay, the house was big and spacious enough for us all to be able to have our own spaces. The dining and kitchen area created a great atmosphere for us to cook and eat together on an evening. The large glass doors in the kitchen and living room allowed us to take full advantage of the summer afternoons, which were also complimented by the outdoor seating area and barbeque which provided a great space to unwind and enjoy each other's company. The view from the back of the house which overlooked the river that had people paddle boarding along created a great summer vibe. On top of the house being up to a great standard, the host was amazing! Any issues we had were solved via text soon after, he also offered to come and sort all issues out in person. Very friendly host and stunning house.

  • "Booked this stunning home for my sisters bridal shower."

    We enjoyed every minute of our stay at this gorgeous home and well maintained garden. From the picturesque lake views at breakfast on the balcony, to our party surprises at sunset: we sure will cherish the memories! The owner was really helpful with questions throughout the stay. He was so kind to accommodate us with special requests to help with our 3 hour journey back home ! The outdoor seating comfortably seated all the bridesmaids as we sung the night away. The large kitchen was supplied with crockery and cutlery allowing us to enjoy our meals and snacks. overall good stay and good private environment, no noise from neighbours so was able to do our own thing without interruption and felt very relaxed within the home. Rooms were a good size to sleep in and comfortable; however the ceilings may need dusting off as there were spiderwebs everywhere. Showers could do with abit of door fixtures.

  • "We spent New Year 2021 here and it was just fabulous from start to finish!"

    The welcome Prosecco and chocolates were a lovely touch! The house was so clean and the beds were super comfortable! It slept 11 of us perfectly and for a large house was very well heated! The hot tub is a super special touch and was just what we needed after a countryside run! Graham (the owner) was quick to reply to messages if we needed him and was very accommodating. The only downside was no sky or normal tv channels for the men to watch rugby. We had Netflix which was great for the children! On the whole it was such a perfect stay! My only tip would be to do a big online shop before you arrive, there aren’t any shops in the close vicinity and the pub which is walking distance wasn’t the best for food! I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family and we would most certainly return!! Thank you!!

  • "Had a wonderful 5 night stay at Longmynd just before Christmas to celebrate our eldest daughter’s birthday."

    There was plenty of space indoors for 6 adults plus four children . We made great use of the hot tub during the evening. The views over the Severn were wonderful especially on my daughter’s birthday where we were greeted with a spectacular sunrise. There was plenty to do in the surrounding area including Dean Forest Railway and Puzzlewood which were particular highlights. Can also recommend the Severn and Wye Smokery for dining out. Thoroughly recommend!

  • "Amazing property, very spacious & comfortable with amazing views ."

    The hot tub was great & the outdoor lighting was very pretty. Graham was on hand to answer any question we had & was really helpful in providing information about the area . The ziplink beds were fantastic for a group of ladies enabling us to all have our own bed . Graham contacted us prior to arrival to ask how we would like the beds arranged & everything was made up & ready for us. The welcome fizz & chocolates was a lovely touch . The only thing we thought could be improved was the bedside lighting, there were a few lamps but they seemed to be for show rather than practicality. The ones that worked were like fairy lights so no good for reading or finding your way to the bathroom during the night? Would definitely recommend this beautiful property.

    It was a very comfortable size for our party of eleven and beautifully presented. As the weather was so nice we were able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the views across the river. It was very light and airy with plenty of space and very well equipped. We all loved relaxing in the hot tub. Graham was brilliant at communicating with us before we arrived with suggestions of where to go and places to eat. He also knew it was an 80th birthday celebration and left a balloon with 80 on it along with sweets etc, which was such a kind gesture and really made the experience special. We couldn’t fault anything, just wish we could have stayed longer.
