“Can't wait to return!”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Having booked this as a romantic getaway location for my partners birthday, I was not dissapointed. We both had the perfect, peaceful break away and only wish we could have stayed longer.
The views were worth the rent alone. Absolutely breathtaking and stunning. I wish I could wake up to them every morning. We also enjoyed waking up to the sounds of all the wildlife in the area. When the weather got slightly worse, just curling up inside infront of the fire was enough as the cottage itself had everything we could possibly need.
The area itself has so much to see and do. We've visited the area before and still haven't managed to fit everything in. Puzzlewood is a personal favourite, along with a visit into nearby Cheltenham and Chepstow. There are also lots of local walks and bike rides to be had.
We would throughly recommend this as a romantic getaway or a relaxing holiday. But we would recommend arriving at the cottage in daylight, if possible, due to access road.
We hope to come back again some time soon-10/10 and two very happy, relaxed customers!
