    I asked a number of questions about the property and all the replies I got just pointed me back to the website listing (which didn't answer my questions - that's why I contacted Sykes directly). I decided to book anyway as the cottage was very good value that week (9th-16th Dec). First of all we had great trouble finding the place as the directions were not at all clear- and when you do eventually arrive you find the cottage is very confusingly called Quat' Saisons not Wye Valley Cottage so you think you have the wrong place. The location is beautiful with lovely views and ideal for us as dog owners with walks straight from the door. Disappointed with the cottage itself which is distinctly average. Jerry-built with poor quality fixtures and fittings, the focus has clearly been on economy so while it is functional there is nothing that made me think that the place was particularly loved and cared for. The place is tiny - OK for us as a couple but would be a real squash for a family. Heating is by inefficient storage heaters with free standing fires which we had to use most of the time as it was a really cold week. Draught whipping in under the front door which opens straight onto the lounge. Kitchen rather poorly equipped. Shower rather weak. As I say, it was all functional and I only paid £255 for a week so I pretty much got what I expected. The following week (Christmas week) was nearly £700 and had I paid that much I would not have been at all happy. We enjoyed our week because of the location and would stay in the village again but not at Wye Valley Cottage. It's a shame as with a bit of love and care it could be a beautiful little place.

About the location

SYMONDS YAT

Monmouth 5 miles; Ross-on-Wye 7 miles; Gloucester 23 miles.

The pretty village of Symonds Yat straddles the beautiful River Wye with its natural scenery and magnificent limestone 'rock', popular with climbers and is internationally renowned for its viewpoint. Symonds Yat West is situated overlooking the beautiful Wye Valley, and is close to the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Visit the historic 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 offering excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Just a little further afield discover the unspoilt Malvern Hills, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park. A great area to unwind with family and friends.
