About Rachel Knapton

Hello. Welcome to the listing of our holiday cottage - Leys Hill Cottage. The cottage is adjoined to the end of the main house (Leys Hill Farm), it is very quiet here and the views from the cottage and garden are wonderful.

There is lots to do in the area, with the Wye Valley and Royal Forest of Dean in close proximity.

If you have any questions about the property or the area, please do just ask.

Thank you

Wonderful, relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Very tranquil & relaxing - just what was needed! Can walk from the door & the views from the patio are lovely. Gorgeous garden. Canoeing on the

River Wye finished off a super week! Close to the Forest of Dean & Symond's Yat. If you want a peaceful setting in a picturesque spot this is it!

Elaine & Dave.

A truly peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely well equipped self-contained cottage, set at the end of a very peaceful and quiet lane. A great place to stay with your dog as the garden is very secure. There are plenty of walks from the cottage if you don’t want to travel far. Rachel is able to tell you about many places to visit. The woods behind the cottage are great to explore, we hope to return :-)

Relaxing place, lovely views, doggy heaven

  • 5 of 5

Another return stay at Leys Hill cottage for us, as always Rachel was the perfect host. If you need any help or advice Rachel is there for you but is never intrusive if you prefer to go it alone. Wonderful place for dogs as no traffic and lots of lovely walks straight from the door plus fabulous views if you just want to sit out and chill. We'll be back again next year if not before.

Everything that you would want a holiday to be! We were welcomed by our wonderful hostess Rachel who could not have been more helpful, friendly and accommodating throughout the week. For us this was the ideal location where we found tranquillity, friendliness, wonderful walks, great views and an abundance of things to do. As dog owners, Fred our Schnauzer could not have been happier. When all is said and done we simply look forward to returning to this "Brigadoon" as soon as possible.
