Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Raby
August 2020
The cottage was very well equipped, the furnishings and beds very comfortable.. The friendly owner left us eggs and biscuits on arrival and popped in to make sure everything was ok. The setting was perfect, very quiet yet located such that we had quick access to travel routes in all directions. We stayed for one week but could easily have found enough things to do to fill a fortnight.

This is our second time staying in this lovely cottage.. It's clean, comfortable and offers everything you need, especially the big area for your dog to run about and enjoy themselves. Great facilities and close to lots of lovely places to visit especially the Forest of Dean. Based not too far from the Welsh border so it's a nice drive to the Brecon Beacons and other surrounding areas. Really is a good base for exploring. Hopefully we'll be back for more exploring next year.

Good base for exploring Herefordshire and Monmouthshire with a number of places to explore withing 30-40min drive.. We had a problem with the kettle, contacted the owner and she brought her own kettle around while she obtained another, brilliant.
Mr Williams, September 2019

A really nice cottage with very good facilities, in a handy position.. ...... The cottage grounds, the actual cottage and the facilities were great. The cottage is a good size (2 bed) and in a handy location to get out and about. It's peaceful and secure in a small quiet village location and is just a nice area to go for gentle walks. The owner was very pleasant and helpful and the cottage is situated in a good location for nearby Ross-on-Wye, Monmouth and Hereford as well as the motorway to go further afield to places like Gloucester. All of these are worth a visit. Also, Symmonds Yat viewpoint is nearby which is spectacular. For families with children, it's a short drive to Coleford to visit Beechenhurst (walking trails, kids play park, large cafe, climbing / highwire facilities, cycling tracks), Symmonds Yat for river cruises, Cannop ponds for wooded lake side walks, and the Dean Heritage Centre which has outside space, a museum and regular craft type events in the village of Lower Soudley. *The listing advertises fishing on site, but this is not accurate and the listing really needs changing. The listing says to speak with the owner to arrange fishing from their land, into Garron Brook, but this wasn't actually an option. I spoke with her and she advised fishing elsewhere and provided contact details of a local fly fishing club. The owner did not provide an option of fishing on their land at all. This is not what I expected and was disappointing. The town stretch of the river Wye in Ross-on-Wye can be fished on a day ticket scheme, with tickets purchased from the tackle shop on Ross-on-Wye High Street. However, it's busy (as you'd imagine) with canoeists, swimmers, dogs etc. Also, the bank is very steep in most places so there are only a handful of accessible swims. It certainly looks a great spot to wet a line though, so worth considering. Overall this was another lovely family holiday away in this part of the UK. Well worth a visit.

Holiday was good, clean and comfortable cottage, great location.. Dissapointed with fishing on site, almost impossible, local pub had closed down so nothing within walking distance. Shower was very tempremental running hot then cold, apart from that overall was good.
Mr Potts
April 2019
Very peaceful & quiet location.. Very pleased with the accommodation, and hard to be critical of anything. Perhaps some brief notes on use of some facilities, e.g. operation of the hob elements, & how to empty the vacuum cleaner (it was full), might have been appropriate. Maybe there were such notes available, but we missed them. Otherwise, excellent week's holiday.
Mr Walker

The person who took my on line call and helped me find somewhere was very good.. We'd been let down elsewhere at the last minute and I was panicking a bit. The cottage was small but cosy and lived up to expectations. The bottle of wine on arrival was much appreciated. And the effort put into the Christmas tree was also appreciated. We had a lovely time there and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Mrs Grindlay
September 2018
This cottage is in a lovely setting with lots of land available for you to use.. The cottage itself is comfortable but in need of a little TLC and some extra cleaning. Windows were very dirty especially the patio doors and lots of cobwebs most notable in the bedrooms. However we had a lovely stay and would recommend it especially if you had a dog.
Mr Slooten
July 2018
We had a very good week in this place.. The cottage is quite cosy downstairs, the beds are comfortable. It was a very warm week but we managed to keep the cottage sufficiently cool and we enjoyed having a garden at our disposition. For four adults the cottage would be a little tiny (e.g. the dining table is not so large) but for a family it was just right and the only thing we would recommend is to slightly expand the number of cups, cutlery etc. But the dishwasher was quick and quiet so this is a minor point. The owners live next to the cottage and are helpful but do not intrude. What we especially liked here is the area the cottage was situated in, which absolutely exceeded our expectations. We were planning to use the place mainly as a base to go to the Brecon Beacons, but actually we almost only stayed in the area which is at the same time very pretty, quite laid back seeming a bit overlooked by the mainstream, yet full of things to do; we walked in the beautiful and varied scenery (meandering rivers/towering cliffs/wild forests/good pubs), went cycling, canoeing and all of that within very easy reach of the cottage. When we left we concluded we could have easily stayed another week.

Lovely cottage & a great location.. Very friendly owners. Couldn't fault it in any way.

We had a fantastic week at The Stable which was in a beautiful location that was perfect for the whole family - dogs & kids alike.. The cottage was very well equipped and we didn’t want for anything. I requested the high chair and travel cot in advance which were clean and ready to go when we arrived. I would 100% stay here again.

Absolutely lovely! Surrounded by green countryside and all we could hear was birdsong and the water passing through the mill. A fabulous place to chill out and enjoy some peace and quiet. We will definitely stay at this property again. The Cross keys Pub around the corner was lovely too - friendly owners and good honest pub food. Loved every minute - thanks!

The cottage feels like there is nothing around but in 2 minutes you are on the A40. The setting is fantastic and the cottage was perfect. It was our first holiday with our dog who loved the large garden/field to run about it. The cottage was just what a family needs to unwind and a great base for all the areas attractions.

Lovely cottage, has all the facilities you require for a relaxing holiday. Excellent location for walking with easy access to the Forest of Dean and Symonds Yat. The cottage was in a very quiet and peaceful area and the garden and the field adjacent to the property were ideal for exercising a dog.

We were very happy staying here with our dog. It was very well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. Lovely paddock for dogs or children to run around in which can be made secure by closing the gate. All in all a good place to stay and convenient for reaching all the main tourist attractions.

The scenery was outstanding, especially the Forest of Dean. The location of the holiday property was ideal as it was fairly central to all the places we wanted to visit, but very rural therefore peace and quiet in abundance. There was wonderful walks with or without dogs, just what we were looking for.
Mrs Dunlop

A haven of tranquillity after busy days of looking round the area. Although so close to the owners' house, we did not feel overlooked or that they were intrusive. Everything was ideal, even the weather.

A lovely cottage to stay in, felt like a home from home. The kitchen was very well stocked with equipment and utensils that you rarely find in a holiday home. It was ideally located down a quiet lane, but close enough to a main road to get around the area easily. Have already recommended it to friends and family.

We liked the layout of the property and it was very homely and warm. We had a dog, who was able to run out in the field of the property which was well fenced off and no danger of him getting out on the lane, he was in his element. There were a number of walks from the property and Goodrich was very local with the historic castle, good walks along the River Wye and Coppett Hill and a lovely pub or two close by! The owner was very hospitable and welcoming.

We have just spent a 3 day short break at the Stable with our dog. The property is very quiet, but within easy travelling of Ross-on-Wye, Monmouth and many scenic walks. There is also a pub with enormous portions of food within 10 minutes walk if we didn't wish to cook ourselves. The property was very clean and well-equipped - particularly the kitchen. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property for a quiet stay.
