Great place to stay for a special occasion

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend with my family celebrating my wife's 70th birthday. Dorlands is a spacious, clean, comfortable and very well equipped property. We would highly recommend this property for any special occasion. Thank you Helen for helping us solve our Mother's Day lunch dilemma.

The whole family (8 adults, 7 children and a dog) had a great time in the house and enjoyed exploring the local countryside.

We had a great time. The property was immaculate and ticked all the boxes for our group, which was a tough ask. The layout was excellent as it gave everyone their own space, the location was beautiful and directions were spot on. And as for the hot tub under the stars - amazing! We hope to return again in the not-too-distant future.

Beautiful views, great house

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our needs. Clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a weekend away.

Well situated for the wye valley and Chepstow.

Helen's communication beforehand was very informative. And the welcome on arrival was lovely.

I would definitely want to hire again, particularly in the summer and make the most of the garden and those beautiful views.

A car is recommended although the house is on a local cycle and bus route. There are several local taxi companies too.

Chepstow is a market town with a beautiful river and a lovely castle just 10mins drive, it has great pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. Monmouth is another ancient market town, approximately 30mins drive.

There are several supermarkets in Chepstow. There is a small local village shop 2mins drive away that provides the very basics. Budgens is the next closest shop about 5 mins drive from the house by the racecourse roundabout which sells most things.

There are several banks, chemists, cafes, restaurants, clothes shops in Chepstow. More information can be found in the house.

People often arrange a food delivery to arrive as they do!
