Mrs Ashford
May 2015
The safely enclosed field was lovely for our dog. The layout downstairs was really sociable and the kitchen facilities were excellent. A very peaceful area. We really did enjoy our stay, the cottage is well placed for exploring the delights of the Forest of Dean South Wales.

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.

Mr Moden

Location was very good. Easy access to all local tourist attractions. Excellent near-by dining.
Mrs Waters
November 2014
Cottage was quiet and remote but within easy access to all amenities by car. Was suitable for a relaxing/walking week away. Generally the cottage had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable.
Mr Small
September 2014
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 Thompson
July 2014
A very well maintained cottage in a great location.
Mrs Dunlop
September 2014
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.
Mrs Wallis
June 2014
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.
Mrs Walters
May 2014
Peaceful and beautiful situation. Owners of the property, who live on site but in no way interfere, could not be more pleasant. Within easy reach of places of interest and of course wonderful walking country. Excellent pub within short walking distance.
Mrs Dyet
May 2014
Location of the cottage was ideal - quiet, with access to a large paddock where we could sit and our dog could run around. Facilities were perfect in the cottage. The bed was particularly comfortable.
Mr Scevity
April 2014
We had a very nice and relaxing Easter break.The cottage was in a very good position for some local walks with the dog. The owners were helpful and friendly.We would go back again.
Mrs Daniel
April 2014
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.
Mrs Bowen

It was a very quiet location and the cottage was very cosy. A perfect place to spend our first, 'married' New Year celebration.
Mr Nixon

Superb cottage in lovely location. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
Mr Synak
December 2013
Very well equipped kitchen; easy to be able to 'self-cater' here. Walk-able distance to a good pub, and close to Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, but very quietly positioned with lovely countryside all around.
Mr Hallett

Good location in lovely countryside. Nice walks nearby for dog owners and walkers.
Mr Rodwell

A really tranquil, relaxing location and a quaint and comfortable cottage. All in all a 'magical' place to spend Christmas!

Lovely quiet location. Excellent local pub.
Mr Hennings
July 2012
It was an ideal location for touring and suitable for walking a dog. The cottage was great for a couple or small family. The food in the local pub was a great attraction.
Mrs Clarke
July 2012
The property had a home from home feeling rather than the bland holiday let cottages that I have encountered. Sykes holidays have always been successful for me.
October 2013
Easy access to lots of interesting places good local pub with excellent food The Stable clean, well equipped.
December 2013
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.
Mrs Williams

The Stable was lovely and well positioned for visiting friends in Ross.
Mrs Neilson
August 2016
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.
Rosemary F
November 2014
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.
Mrs Woods

Lovely cottage set in a lovely location..
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.
Mrs Cording
April 2018
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.
Miss Cashmore
June 2017
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!

Comfortable and cosy cottage in a fabulous location

Lovely cottage, quiet location, very well equipped, will definitely book again..
Mr Walker
December 2018
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.
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.
