About the Owner

Having becoming thoroughly enchanted by the Wye Valley whilst at University in Bristol in the late 90s and more recently whilst living and working in Bristol, I decided to move here in the summer of 2010.

I love holidaying in self-catering cottages in the UK and overseas and so when the opportunity of acquiring Spring Cottage - then a pretty but neglected cottage surrounded by beautiful woodland - presented itself I jumped at the opportunity and applied all that I had learnt that works (taking note of the many things that don't) in completely restoring the cottage and providing guests with a thoroughly contemporary and special holiday-cottage experience.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Spring Cottage - all round excellent quality of refurb, very comfortable bed, cosy, efficient fire - essential ingredients to come back to after a busy day walking!

Cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, well appointed cottage in a secluded valley very close to the River Wye. Brilliant welcome pack of eggs and bread and plenty of firewood, kindling can be found in the woods. The road in to the cottage, Underhill, is narrow but you get used to it, the cottage is pretty much at the end of the road, you just keep to the right at any forks.

We would definitely return here for an Autumn break.

Cozy Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, cosy cottage in a beautiful setting. Quality bedding and well equipped holiday home. Very clean. The lane to the cottage is very narrow and care needs to be taken but after first time you get used to it. The welcome loaf and eggs was a lovely gesture and basic things like teabags, hairdyer all add to an excellent experience. We will certainly go back at a future date, loved it!

Location

From the Owner

I love the Wye Valley - the forests carpeted with bluebells and primroses in the spring, the wild flower riverside meadows in the summer, the vistas from the top of the valley over the trees in the autumn and the crisp air and welcoming feel of a log burner in the winter - it truly is a place for all seasons!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Bristol International Airport at 50 Miles Nearest Barpub : Brockweir Country Inn at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Forest of Dean Golf Course, Coleford at 15 Miles Nearest Train : Chepstow at 10 Miles Nearest Motorway : M48 at 8 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Brockweir Country Inn at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Gower at 70 Miles Car: recommended

Travel:

Brockweir is situated approximately 20 miles from Bristol and 30 miles from Cardiff, with access to both being via the M48 and M4. Both cities have airports serving domestic and international destinations.

The nearest train station is in Chepstow and there is a bus stop opposite Brockweir bridge (10 minute walk) which is mid-point on the Chepstow to Monmouth bus service.

Distances:

Brockweir is a charming village on the eastern banks of the River Wye and on the edge of the Forest of Dean. It is situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between the Welsh Border towns of Chepstow and Monmouth, approximately two miles north of the village of Tintern with it’s famous Abbey. Whilst on the one hand remote, the village is also conveniently only 10 miles from the M48 Severn Bridge.

Further Details:

The Village Shop - Brockweir has it's own environmentally neutral, not-for-profit Community Store and Cafe selling essentials and local, seasonal produce. It is open seven days a week and can be reached in fifteen minutes by foot (5 minutes by car).

Brockweir Country Inn - The local pub serving wholesome pub food and a good selection of Ales is a ten minute walk from Spring Cottage (3 minute drive).

Walking - No doubt one of the great attractions of the area is the year-round walking, and many walks, short and long, are close at hand. The best known routes - Offa's Dyke Path and Wye Valley Walk - both pass through the village and it is a few moments walk from the cottage to join either.

Canoeing - A highlight of any visit to the Valley is canoeing or kayaking down the Wye on a warm summer's day. These can be rented in Monmouth or Symonds Yat.

Fishing - The Wye is renowned for it's fishing. Bigsweir Fishery (3 miles) own a beautiful 2 mile stretch of the Wye offering double bank fishing between March and October. Grange Springs Fishing Lakes (5 miles) and Big Well Fly Fishing (8 miles) offer lake based coarse and game fishing respectively.

For Children - Go Ape! (11 miles) is a great day out for children and adults alike. The ‘high-wire forest adventure’ involves following a giant obstacle course up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels, together with zip lines, high ropes and swings.

Back on land and next to Go Ape is The Forest of Dean Family Cycle Trail which is a circular 11 mile cycle route through the beautiful Forest with numerous lakes providing great picnic spots.
