    The welcome pack on arrival was extremely welcome. The accommodation was comfortable and one of the cleanest we have stayed in. Beautiful views from the conservatory and a great place to relax.

    The cottage is comfortable and Connie is a very friendly and attentive host. The welcome pack is very generous. Everything you would need is provided and the surroundings are beautiful. The cottage is a great base to explore the Wye Valley and south west Wales being only a couple of miles from the Welsh border. Definitely a place we would return to if we chose to visit the area again.

  • "The owner was very welcoming and helpful , it gave an air of assurance in these stressful "getting back to normal" times."

    The cottage is cosy and comfortable in a beautiful location, with lovely views over a valley. We spent happy times over a coffee watching the amazing bird life (and saw birds of prey high up over the hills). The weather wasn't good to us during our stay but the accommodation was a welcoming place to come back to. We agree with a previous reviewer's comments , that if you are used to a firmer mattress , you notice a difference, but that is a minor point. Overall a lovely , welcoming place to retreat to for a break and an excellent base for visiting and exploring the surrounding area.
