“The cottage was beautiful, cosy and had possibly one of the best equipped kitchens. Jenny and Jemima had put the heating on so that when we arrived in the late evening, we could cuddle up straight away with a glass of wine. There were some lovely touches with milk, eggs and biscuits there for us to use. There was a folder full of info on the cottage and excellent tips on the local area. On our second day we were able to walk straight from the cottage out towards the Wye Valley, completing a loop along Offa's Dyke to Tintern and then back along the Wye Valley Walk. Well worth it! Lovely place to stay - you'd be daft not to book!”

“A beautiful place to stay - so quiet, away from it all. Very stylish and the wood burner will keep you very warm! The farm shop is amazing, and there's really no need to go anywhere else, except if you fancy a walk around, there is a beautiful estate and many great walks. We had a lovely time, thank you Clare.”

“I had the best time staying at Karen and Gerald's place. It was an great place to stay and was very handy for work commitments. The location was even better than I thought, nice quiet spot by the coast and was very comfortable. The additional for allowing to bring my dog with me was a big relief and amazing. Overall, the lodge is a brilliant place to stay, very easy to get to and providing very nice local walks and shop nearby in walking distance. Karen and Gerald were extremely friendly and generous in all aspects to making my stay even better. I would definitely stay here again in future.”
