Thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the cottage was fantastic. Amazing views from the front of the property and great location with plenty of places to eat and pubs within short driving distance.Also close to Monmouth being only a few miles away. Cottage was cosy and very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. Only negative,not that it's much of one but found didn't really cater for families with babies or small children as had no travel cot or high chair so ended up having to take the mattress from my 2 year olds bed with us in the car which luckily managed to just about fit in, but not enough room for highchair. Having said that it worked out ok and we all had a fantastic time. Ian Barton Tenbury wells,Worcestershire

The cottage is spotless, tastefully decorated and very welcoming. Breakfasts are delicious, nothing is too much trouble and the whole vibe is laid back and relaxed. I would highly recommend BroadRock and look forward to going back.
