    “We stayed at Flat 7, The Lodge, GL15 6TB for a week from the 15th June 2019.”


    Though the pictures on your website were lovely, it did lead us to believe that the flat was part of the castle in the village and the green was a garden/part of the grounds, upon arriving the postcode lead us to a small cul-de-sac and we were left a little lost, unable to find where we were staying. Once we found the property and though it is a communal area, from the front door to the property door it is in an incredibly messy state to say the least. Once in the flat, it was decorated nicely and looked newly renovated which was great, however, as there was no proper flooring down it would have been prudent to ensure the carpet gripper at the front door and the two nails (one outside the bathroom and one inside the bathroom) were removed as trousers and feet were caught at times, we were extremely lucky our small dog didn’t find any of these as it could have been worse. We did have a brief text conversation with the owner as he believed the flat was cleaned the day before our arrival, unfortunately this wasn’t the case. The kitchen had breadcrumbs left all round the toaster and kettle area, the window sill in the bathroom was full of dust and dead insects and the table in the bedroom was also full of dust. Lastly, the bed felt like it was just a sheet of material over springs with a gap in the middle where the two single beds were attached together with the duvet barely covering the bed itself. Overall, we had a lovely stay in the area and decided not to spend too much time in the apartment. Unfortunately, due to the above comments, we wouldn’t recommend it.

About the location

St Briavels

Monmouth 8 miles; Chepstow 9 miles

St Briavels stands almost 800 feet above sea level overlooking the Wye Valley and is only a 10 minute drive from The Forest of Dean. The village has an ancient moated Royal castle, a communal green, a playground, an art gallery and monthly farmers' market. It's history dates back to the 11th Century and beyond - the Hudnall woods, one of King John's favourite hunting grounds, are one of the few remaining unmanaged woods in the Country. Other nearby attractions include Puzzlewood, Clearwell's ancient caves, Symonds Yat with its outstanding views across the Wye Valley and riverside walks and many castles to explore. St Briavels is situated on the English side of the English/Welsh border providing easy access to the historic castles in Monmouthshire, and the foody delights of Abergavenny and the unspoiled and untamed natural beauty of the Breacon Beacons. On the English side of the border the beautiful market towns of Ross-on-Wye, and the cities of Hereford and Gloucester are within an hours drive or less. St Briavels offers easy access to a wealth of beautiful and historic walking trails, including Offa's Dyke. The area provides opportunities for many outdoor activities including cycling, caving, canoeing and abseiling. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts numerous trails that can be explored on foot, by bike or on horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. The ancient caves of Clearwell are nearby, as are the Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke Path. Symonds Yat boasts natural scenery and straddles the beautiful River Wye with its magnificent limestone outcrop, popular with climbers, and well-known for its viewpoint. Visit the nearby historic walled town of Chepstow with its impressive Norman Castle and the celebrated racecourse, whilst the pretty market town of Monmouth, with its mixture of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses and delightful riverside walks, both offer excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. The unspoilt Brecon Beacons National Park and Black Mountains, as well as lovely Cotswold towns and villages are just a little further afield as are the cities of Cheltenham, Gloucester, Cardiff, Newport, and just across the Severn Bridge, Bristol and Bath. St Briavels is ideally placed for enjoying the delights of Gloucestershire at any time of the year.
