About Darren and Suzanne Bird
Darren and Suzanne Bird.We have been visiting Symonds Yat for 20 years or more and still love the area.We had always dreamed of owning a house here and when Tivoli came on the market in 2007 we had big plans to renovate this derelict cottage.We have only just converted it into a holiday let and are really pleased with the results
Darren and Suzanne Bird purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Darren and Suzanne Bird chose Ross-on-Wye
We love the area because it's a perfect escape from the crowds but with plenty to do and see if we choose.There are wonderful views from the cottage and there are many walks straight from the garden gate.

The cottage is set in its own private grounds and is only a few minutes walk to the river and pubs.The cottage benefits from its own off road parking for three cars.It has two large decked areas which are great for al fresco dining or admiring the views with a glass of wine.

Fantastic cottage with all you need for a perfect stay. Lovely area with plenty to do.
Great cottage with everything inside you need. With a large decking area looking over the Wye Valley. Great to sit out on a evening to have a drink or two. Plenty to do around the area, but we just went walking every day and had an afternoon of canoning which a good company just below the cottage. Two nice pubs within about ten mins. So a lovely place will definitely want a return visit.
Lovely cottage in scenic setting
We had a lovely few days here with our large dog who spent hours watching the rabbits from the decking! The cottage was immaculate and the beds comfortable. We had some great walks and the cottage is ideally situated for both walks and drives around the valley. We enjoyed sitting by the river at Ye Old Ferry Inn watching the paddle board yoga!
Loved the cottage, the balcony and views were amazing, had just about everything we needed for a great break away from it all
Fantastic dog friendly cottage in beautiful surroundings
Lovely home in Symonds Yat West with a fully secure garden for our escapee border terrier. Great location for walks around the river and forest. We’ll definitely be coming back.
A wonderful winter weekend
Had the most wonderful winter weekend away. The cottage has the most magnificent views towards the Wye. The fires kept us cosy and the kitchen is well equipped. The garden is large, secure and perfect for our Golden Retriever when he was not exploring the river banks. We had a delicious lunch at the Wye Knot Inn and cannot wait to visit again in summer.
Lovely Cottage in a lovely location
This is I think the fifth time that we have stayed at this cottage so it is about time we gave this a review. The fact that we have been five times and have another booked for next year should tell you something about how we feel for the place.
The cottage itself is excellent, a good front room, two comfortable bedrooms, a characterful and well equipped kitchen, and a nice big practical entrance room for getting the muddy boots off. There are log burners in both the front room and the kitchen/diner area which is nice, but also the central heating is excellent so we use the fire just cos we can :).
The outside space is lovely with a great decking area with spectacular views of the Wye Valley and to the side is a nice landscaped garden as well.
The location of the cottage is great for us too, it is easy to reach from the main A40 and what we like is the close proximity to the walks around Symonds Yat, and for the evening the excellent choice of local boozers The Wye Knott is the nearest and is a cosy friendly pub and we like the Crown at Whitchurch for it's excellent and cheaply priced Vodka selection. Also the Old Ferry Inn as a great pub located right on the river and the Saracen's head on the other side.
Finally the owners are great and helpful when needed and always prompt with coming back with any questions you have.
Is there anything that could be done better, well it has a rather noisy fridge but that is about it... who cares :). I suppose one thing to note is the steep steps from where you park the car to the property could be a look out for some but for most that is not a problem.
