“Fantastic location, comfortable & well equipped”
Reviewed 15 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 22 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.

“A wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I would highly recommend Sue's cottage it is perfect a small family or a couple. The cottage has everything you could possibly need, all your home comforts are provided for. Utensils, bedding, towels and board games everything is there for you. It is the perfect location to take walks, catch the hand ferry over to Saracens Head pub for lunch or a walk up to Symonds Yatt Rock.

“Dream of a holiday in a dream location”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was our first family holiday for quite a few years. We wanted to be close to Ross-on-Wye as we have seldom seen friends there. Symmonds Yat is an excellent base for discovering both the wye valley and south Wales, and the cottage was absolutely fantastic. The finish in décor and furnishings is stylish and comfortable. The kitchen has pretty much any utensil you could desire.
I had no peeves whatsoever, and have stolen some of the décor ideas to bring our own home up to date!
We would visit again for certain, Thank you for a great holiday Justine.
