"Set in an idyllic location, it's a cut above the rest, with outstanding views...perfect for walking and exploring the beautiful surroundings...I couldn't recommend it highly enough." (See Full Review)

The Cottage is laid out on 5 levels, with many of the rooms opening to a huge decking area with amazing views of the Wye Valley and Black Mountains.

The decking, on two levels, has a hot tub, sauna, BBQ and table and chairs for al fresco dining, relaxing in front of the chiminea or gazing in wonder at the galaxies.

Roam, perhaps rest awhile, in the large rustic garden; regularly visited by pheasants and home to many species of birds, rabbits, other wildlife.  You’ll feel secluded in this Forest retreat; a home from home where you can relax after a day’s activities in the forest, at Symonds Yat, elsewhere on the River Wye or further afield to the 'Three Choirs' Cathedral Cities of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester.

The nearest pub is a few minutes walk, it's a 3 minute drive to a shop/post office and there's a good selection of pubs, eateries and restaurants within 15 minutes.

"The cottage is very cosy, we liked the extra touches such as the garden uplighting into the trees and the constant stream of wild birds...It is well equipped...Vinyl records and a fantastic sound system... A truly amazing and magical place" (See the Full Reviews)
