  • "Great comms from Sarah the host before arriving, emails and texts with info and even asking for any dietary requirements for our welcome pack which was a lovely selection of goodies."

    Apart from our clothes and food/ drinks the cottage had everything needed, a real home from home feel too. It’s a good base to go out exploring the local area, tourist spots, Forest of Dean and we went to Hereford city, only took around half an hours drive. The White Lion is a two minute walk and I’d recommend to go there. Ross is a fifteen minute walk away. *Contrary to a previous post I’d read and the photos on here, there is a banister on the wall now to help with the internal stairs. Thanks again to Sarah for a lovely stay.

    Thank you For your lovely comments. I’m delighted you enjoyed your stay despite the weather! We would welcome you back anytime. Sarah Property Owner
