The Cot was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and it had all the necessary amenities/appliances (wifi, DVD player, etc). The hosts (Janet) were communicative, helpful and very friendly, and even gave us a number of hiking maps/trails. Complimentary milk and wine were also provided. There were some games provided, as well as a single swing outside, thus relatively kid friendly, though there are a lot of steps up to the car park The location is the real treat. The views from the patio table are incredible and you get a real sense of peace (a great escape from my London home). Straight from the patio is a small trail the winds you down to the river where you find the Old Ferry Inn pub which is right on the River Wye with lots of outdoor seating. Good food and surprisingly large selection of ciders. Basically you can hike all along the river valley and pop down to some river pub for some refreshment. We hardly saw anyone on the hiking trails, but when we did meet people, everyone was super friendly. We also found a mini-golf, maze and butterfly zoo across from another lovely old pub (The Old Court). There was also canoe hire. Overall if you want an escape from City life or just some lovely hikes in the countryside this is definitely worth trying!
