From the moment the high quality brochure and little stamped gift envelope with discount tickets for local restaurants, I knew this cottage was owned by someone who took great pride and pleasure out of delighting her guests, and we were not disappointed on arrival!
A lovely cottage, in a perfect setting, overlooking the river and close to the pull ferry taking you across it.

The cottage is warm and cosy. It also has every conceivable gadget you can ever imagine, more than I have even at home and all designed for guests complete comfort and convenience.

From the surprise little chocolate welcome pack, to the toiletries in the bedrooms and bathroom, everything has been designed to make guests stay a 5* experience.

I cannot recommend this place enough. We will definitely be back.

“Fantastic location, comfortable & well equipped”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Cottage is in a beautiful situation. Right by River Wye, fantastic walks direct from the door and several good pubs within walking distance, all dog friendly. Plenty of local attractions within a short drive.
Cottage itself very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Only slight minuses were the cottage, due to it's situation suffering from a slight lack of natural light and a noisy oven, Would happily return.

“Property is in a wonderful location for exploring stocked with everything you might need.”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Sue's Cottage is wonderfully situated with easy access to miles of footpaths (on both sides of the River Wye) and equipped with everything imaginable! Not only is a Welcome Gift in cottage but they provide lovely toiletries and even provide washing powder. There are leaflets on dozens of ideas for what to do and plenty of books, games, DVD's etc. for the times when you want to stay in. Truly a "home from home". It took us a couple of trips to get used to the access road but there are plenty of passing places.
