Our large family took over both the house and the cottage, and had a wonderful week in this most beautiful of locations. Spacious, clean, warm and friendly - we felt at home straight away, and every morning the amazing view was different, and something to be enjoyed and commented on. We visited Monmouth and Chepstow (impressive castle), rode on a steam railway in the Forest of Dean and even marvelled at Tintern Abbey in the rain. A very special week.

Excellent accommodation in all areas. All in perfectly clean condition. Beautiful views and much to keep busy with on grounds or only a short driving distance away. Big thanks to Helen and her family and Molly and Maisy (dogs) of the next door cottage for making our stay so welcoming. Always ready and willing to help in any possible way and always with a smile. Greatly recommend this cottage
