  • "Excellent property for our large party of 16 adults."

    Old and quirky but plenty of space and parking, and a great garden for the dog to explore. A few of the beds are not very comfy though but overall we all had a great time. Excellent location for Symonds Yat and the Wye, with some excellent walks and pubs. The cafe at the local shop also great.

  • "Property suffers from serious damp, walls etc are all damp, not pleasant to stay in with two of our party getting colds."

    Needs damp treatment or to be removed from site.

    We believe this comment to be completely unjustified. We have in fact recently had repairs carried out to the roof at Cedars House and, as part of the work, the contractor undertook a damp survey in every room and concluded that there is no significant damp problem. Property Owner

  • "The house and garden were ideal for our family group of 18, aged from 2 to 70, plus dog."

    The location was great for the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean. There was plenty of everything provided in the house and plenty of space for the younger ones to run around, inside and out.

  • "There had obviously been a new bathroom fitted, which was lovely, but with the hiccough that it can sometimes bring, we fully understand and are thankful for the swift fixing of a leak that resulted."

    However, the house itself was advertised as a 'Vintage stay' appropriate for photo shoots etc. the reality was a house that had broken furniture, old, ripped sofas, rising damp and mice. This was not what we anticipated nor was it to the standard that we had hoped from a 'Sykes' accommodation. Although it was a good location with good sized rooms, the interior would benefit from some attention.

  • "We had a lovely time, the house has lots of space and a evocative air of faded grandeur!"

    We did have a little trouble with one of the toilets and the fan oven was not very reliable.

  • "All members of our party agreed that this house gains attractiveness, the longer you stay, so we were really glad to have opted for booking the whole week, although some of us had to leave earlier on account of work and other prior commitments."

    There were a number of minor maintenance issues, which however we reported directly to the owner, whom we met as we were preparing to leave on our last morning. He assured us these would be attended to.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Cedars House."

    It was very comfortable and clean, and it's well positioned for some of us who liked walking and climbing at Symonds Yat. Lots of places to visit and have days out. l loved shopping at Ross on Wye, it's a really nice place. My only concern was the large amount of crockery and ornaments which were for display purposes only, on ledges and the dressers. I found it to be a large responsibility and had to put some items out of the way for my own peace of mind. My party consisted of tall adults, it would have been so easy for any one them to have inadvertently knocked something off with their elbows when standing near the dressers. Apart from that we had a really good time in all

Boasting lovely walks in every direction, Whitchurch has a thriving village shop and coffee shop selling locally sourced products, a pub and a restaurant. Just a short distance away is Symonds Yat, a pretty Herefordshire village, which straddles the River Wye, home to the magnificent natural limestone rock popular with wildlife enthusiasts and climbers, as well as a Butterfly Farm and Maze.

Close by is the pretty village of Goodrich with its 12th century Marcher Castle, village shop and two pubs both serving good food. The historic town of Monmouth is well worth a visit with its mixture of Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, while the riverside town of Ross-on-Wye has many timbered Tudor buildings, riverside walks and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants.
