Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent well kept cottage with beautiful views and complete privacy. A week in the wooded and rural surroundings of Symonds Yat. The detached house is fully equipped, including a fine bed, and decorated with lots of love and attention. You have a beautiful view of the valley and spacious terrace. The presence of information encompassing the surroundings: pubs - shops - attractions - also hiking and cycling routes we found very nice. The owner was always available for questions. In short we had a great week. Thank you.

Stunning property in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner were looking for out firstbownrrs direct property to stay in and were looking around the wye valley area when we can across this little gem and how it seemed look better than most places in the pictures provided and we were not disappointed! It is a really stunning property with literally everything you need to sit back and relax for your stay! With lovely views from every window (and a few farm yard friends) you need not stray far from the property should you not want to! The owners are lovely, friendly and really approachable should you need anything and they really take care of us guests, providing all the essentials needed to have an easy and comfortable stay and all the information you need to get out and about should you want to and with it not being far from most places, it makes for a lovely walk around the local area! Thanks to Juliette who kept in contact with us throughout the build up to our holiday and on the day for giving us everything we needed! I wouldn’t hesitate to book this place again, it was amazing!

A lovely 5 day stay at Wye Valley view, and what a view from the accommodation! Everything you need for a comfortable break away from it all. Good pubs within walking distance, lovely woodland walks, and activities on the river. Hosts Juliette and Stephen very welcoming. Would certainly recommend this property.
