    It really was home from home. The place was clean and tidy and everything we needed was there. Our family Particularly enjoyed the open plan design. It was lovely to be all together all the time as with children getting older, at home they spend a lot of time in their rooms. It was central to a lot of places, we visited Ross-on-Wye, the Brecon Beacons & Hereford. Also had some chill time. Our dog also loved the new experience and was very well behaved. He loved the lovely big outside space of the green. would definitely recommend this place to stay. It was a very well needed break. thank you!

    Only issue was we contacted Sykes prior to our stay to ask if there was a DVD player at cottage one was not listed but I asked them to ask the owner. They came back to me and said no dvd player so we took one, yet when we got to the cottage there was one, the owner said he had not been contacted to ask.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Lovely cottage which was exceptionally well laid out with beautiful views over the garden and lake. Great place for dogs as the large front garden area down to the lake was fenced off. Owner was very nice and only came over when we arrived and left. The only real downside was the lack of wi-fi which we really missed. We could only occasionally get our own network signal when standing outside the cottage and that was intermittent. Also a local information book with doctor, dentist, bus stops, waste recycling and other general info would be useful. Overall though we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

    It was well appointed and the cleanliness was excellent. Personally for a perfect stay I would have preferred the cottage to have a wifi connection, especially as mobile phone coverage is very poor on some networks. Although grumbles aside I would definitely rebook and return as we loved everything else. Thanks.

    The accommodation was excellent, location very peaceful with nice views and the walks round the lakes enjoyable. The grounds were well secure even for my two escape artists, with no worry of allowing them to roam freely. Herefordshire is a pleasant area to visit, many attractions with easy reach to cities and towns worth visiting. Rob the host was very pleasant and helpful. Would certainly recommend to anyone to book the Stables

Ross-on-Wye 3 miles.

The thriving village of Upton Bishop lies in beautiful Herefordshire countryside close to the border with Gloucestershire and has an excellent village pub, craft centre and is just 3 miles from the pretty riverside town of Ross-on-Wye. Upton Bishop offers many lovely walks and cycle routes with the Herefordshire Trail and Wye Valley Walk both close by. Nearby Gorsley offers a well-stocked village shop with Post Office and off licence, along with a popular free house pub with restaurant that's renowned for its Nepalese cuisine both in the county and beyond. Newent, one of the most attractive market towns in the Vale of Leadon and formerly a Roman settlement, has a wide range of attractions, including the half-timbered Old Market Hall dating back to 1668, traditional inns, restaurants, tea rooms and individual shops. Overlooking a large loop in the beautiful River Wye is the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, situated in the picturesque Wye Valley. This attractive town has timbered Tudor houses clustered around the striking 17th century Market Hall, and there are excellent shops, pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. Stroll along the lovely river bank, take a river cruise or view the surrounding countryside from a hot-air balloon. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean boasts many trails which can be enjoyed on foot, bicycle or horseback or why not try your hand at fishing, golf, kayaking or caving all of which can be enjoyed in the area. Try the local wine at the Three Choirs Vineyard or visit the waterfront city of Gloucester with its Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and Norman Cathedral.
