    “The kitchen and bathroom are very old, tatty and dirty.”

    The whole downstairs could do with a deep clean and to be honest the kitchen is very old and grimy and needs to be replaced. The kitchen has no windows (two doors) and had a smell of old food, which made my son gag. ...

    The whole downstairs could do with a deep clean and to be honest the kitchen is very old and grimy and needs to be replaced. The kitchen has no windows (two doors) and had a smell of old food, which made my son gag. There was a bottle of wine on arrival but not the usual welcome pack. For example no bread, cake, milk and eggs you normally get on arrival. Also there was no washing up liquid or soap or standard cupboard items that you usually find like oil etc. I am genuinely surprised none of the other reviewers mentioned the cleanliness issues, especially the kitchen as it is quite significant. I think Sykes should inspect the property and review the rating as a result. Am also surprised Sykes didn't proactively contact us to seek feedback as most holiday let companies do. Location is amazing, would recommend Hertfordshire.

About the location


Ross-on-Wye 5 miles; Gloucester 13.5 miles.

The thriving village of Lea lies on the northern edge of the Royal Forest of Dean, surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside and offers a village shop, Post Office, petrol station and a traditional village pub hosting a very good Indian restaurant, whilst other inns serving traditional pub grub can be found close by. Both the Gloucestershire Way and Wysis Way pass close to the village and set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this stunning part of the country offers many activities and attractions, including numerous trails that can be enjoyed on foot, by horseback or by bicycle, as well as a high wire rope course, abseiling, caving and kayaking. The less adventurous can enjoy a days fishing on the River Wye or golf at one of the nearby courses. The historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, overlooking a loop in the River Wye, is just a short drive away and offers many amenities as does the waterfront city of Gloucester where you will find Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and a stunning Norman cathedral (whose cloisters were used in the Harry Potter films). Goodrich is a short drive away and boasts a perfect example of a 12th century Marcher castle or guests can enjoy a day trip to the Black Mountains, Hay-on-Wye and the magnificent Brecon Beacons National Park.
