Please ensure that the parking space is nominated precisely, we were approached by a permanent resident advising where we had parked was "Public Access" yet within the confines of the car park not blocking anyone. It made us feel unwanted and uneasy. The property is listed as 1st floor flat, it is NOT, flats 1-2-3 are on the ground floor while 4 -5 is on the first floor flat 6-7 top floor (28 stairs up). There is no light on the top landing either. The windows in kitchen, shower room and sitting/bedroom were infested with flies and had to be "flacked" out daily. Dead bodies were stuck to the window frames. The wash basin in the shower room was extremely small and difficult to even clean your teeth, the plug didn't even work.Despite a three week let,only 1.5 toilet rolls were supplied. The dining furniture was just a picnic table and two chairs, no other seating provided so had to sit on the bed most of the time. The bed was very uncomfortable to lay on as springs could be felt through the mattress. There is NO microwave as listed let alone a tin-opener. The is no Freeview to watch TV live and Netflix is a subscribed service. After three weeks were glad to leave the place. The worst holiday let we have ever stayed in. And that's over twenty in various locations. Show more Show less The property Lodge Gardens is a wonderfully appointed studio apartment based in St Briavels, Gloucestershire.

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.
