About David Moore
Having becoming thoroughly enchanted by the Wye Valley whilst at University in Bristol in the late 90s and more recently whilst living and working in Bristol, I decided to move here in the summer of 2010. I love holidaying in self-catering cottages in the UK and overseas and so when the opportunity of acquiring Spring Cottage - then a pretty but neglected cottage surrounded by beautiful woodland - presented itself I jumped at the opportunity and applied all that I had learnt that works (taking note of the many things that don't) in completely restoring the cottage and providing guests with a thoroughly contemporary and special holiday-cottage experience.
David Moore purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why David Moore chose Saint Briavels
I love the Wye Valley - the forests carpeted with bluebells and primroses in the spring, the wild flower riverside meadows in the summer, the vistas from the top of the valley over the trees in the autumn and the crisp air and welcoming feel of a log burner in the winter - it truly is a place for all seasons!

Beautiful little cottage
Pretty, quaint and secluded up a long narrow lane with just a handful of properties around. Nestled in amongst the trees with lovely views this cottage ticked all the boxes for us, a village pub and not far from tintern, monmouth and chepstow. A beautiful place to stay
Thanks for the review Arlene and we hope to welcome you back to Spring Cottage soon.
The property was not isolated as other people have written, but there is about a mile of narrow road to reach the property, with passing places. Saying that the whole week we were there we didn't once come across another car. Beautiful area with lots of walks from the door and a lovely community shop in the village. Everything you needed in the cottage was there and the Dogs loved it too!
Beautiful cosy cottage
Spring Cottage is beautiful. So cosy and in such a peaceful location. We found the cottage easily from directions given and managed the narrow lane! The cottage was clean and tidy and everything we needed was provided which is not always the case. Bread and eggs were much appreciated - as was the wood supply! We managed several muddy walks and our dog had a wonderful time too. We would definitely recommend your cottage to friends .
Thank you David
Thank you Rachel. Glad you enjoyed the week and I hope to welcome you all back soon.
Lovely cottage with great walks in the woods from the doorstep
Comfortable, well-equipped cottage at the end of a long single track road - a somewhat daunting drive the first time, but you get used to it. There’s a log burning stove which is very welcome on cold, damp days. It’s just a short climb through the woods from the back door onto Offa’s Dyke path and there are endless paths to explore - our dog loved them, just as we did. Tintern Abbey is an impressive ruin in walking distance, and it’s an easy drive to either Chepstow or Monmouth for good restaurants. The Misbah in Monmouth is a curry house which is a cut above most and Newbridge on Usk 15-20 miles across the hills is a great place right on the river for a special lunch or dinner.
Susan - Thank you for your review and I am pleased you enjoyed your new year break. We hope to welcome you back to Spring Cottage soon.

Brockweir is situated approximately 20 miles from Bristol and 30 miles from Cardiff, with access to both being via the M48 and M4. Both cities have airports serving domestic and international destinations.
The nearest train station is in Chepstow and there is a bus stop opposite Brockweir bridge (10 minute walk) which is mid-point on the Chepstow to Monmouth bus service.
Brockweir is a charming village on the eastern banks of the River Wye and on the edge of the Forest of Dean. It is situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between the Welsh Border towns of Chepstow and Monmouth, approximately two miles north of the village of Tintern with it’s famous Abbey. Whilst on the one hand remote, the village is also conveniently only 10 miles from the M48 Severn Bridge.
The Village Shop - Brockweir has it's own environmentally neutral, not-for-profit Community Store and Cafe selling essentials and local, seasonal produce. It is open seven days a week and can be reached in fifteen minutes by foot (5 minutes by car).
Brockweir Country Inn - The local pub serving wholesome pub food and a good selection of Ales is a ten minute walk from Spring Cottage (3 minute drive).
Walking - No doubt one of the great attractions of the area is the year-round walking, and many walks, short and long, are close at hand. The best known routes - Offa's Dyke Path and Wye Valley Walk - both pass through the village and it is a few moments walk from the cottage to join either.
Canoeing - A highlight of any visit to the Valley is canoeing or kayaking down the Wye on a warm summer's day. These can be rented in Monmouth or Symonds Yat.
Fishing - The Wye is renowned for it's fishing. Bigsweir Fishery (3 miles) own a beautiful 2 mile stretch of the Wye offering double bank fishing between March and October. Grange Springs Fishing Lakes (5 miles) and Big Well Fly Fishing (8 miles) offer lake based coarse and game fishing respectively.
For Children - Go Ape! (11 miles) is a great day out for children and adults alike. The ‘high-wire forest adventure’ involves following a giant obstacle course up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels, together with zip lines, high ropes and swings.
Back on land and next to Go Ape is The Forest of Dean Family Cycle Trail which is a circular 11 mile cycle route through the beautiful Forest with numerous lakes providing great picnic spots.
