Description

Three Castles and Wye Valley Walks entice walkers along their historic paths, The Biblins Bridge is only 1 mile, Goodrich Castle is close by.

With beautiful rural views towards King Arthur’s Cave and King Caracticus’ Fort, this Georgian farmhouse makes an ideal holiday base for walkers. It is only one mile from The Biblins Bridge – with the meandering River Wye below – from where superb views of Seven Sisters Rock are to be admired.
The area offers some of the finest walking and cycling terrain in the country. Within 5 miles the Offa’s Dyke, Three Castles Walk and Wye Valley Walk entice walkers along their historic paths, taking in stunning scenery and ‘black-and-white’ villages en route. Symonds Yat lies close by, a must for outdoor lovers; kayaks and canoes can be hired for a leisurely day upon the river, while those seeking more excitement can try their hand at white water rafting. Other activities to enjoy locally include pot holing, mountain biking, horse riding, ballooning and abseiling, while for those happier to enjoy more tranquil pursuits, this is a great area for bird-watching, fishing and golf.
A 20 minute walk across Biblins Bridge leads into the Forest of Dean, a vast wooded expanse spanning some 27,000 acres; here the quiet observer may be lucky enough to spot one of the resident fallow deer – a reminder of the forest’s origins as a royal hunting ground for Norman kings. Indeed, this is an area steeped in history, where castles and fortifications dot the landscape, mapping out a territory fought over down the ages; nearby Goodrich Castle serves as a prime example. With the Welsh borders and Brecon Beacons to explore in one direction, and the honey-toned Cotswolds in the other, this is a centrally located base for touring this unspoilt region. And after all that fresh air, there are plenty of homely pubs in which to enjoy a hearty meal and sample some of the local ciders in good company. Shop 1 mile.

    So a few comments about the house....Great rural location. Space wise accommodated our large group adequately. Large dining table (though wax left black marks on elbows) Comfy beds. Unnecessarily long and patronising hand over talk. ....allocate someone to be in charge in case of fire! We're not 12! Ironic battery flat in fire alarm. Also there was no way of getting out of our bedroom window unless we unscrewed, the little wooden blocks, (is that even legal??) to climb out on to a glass slope roof. I wouldn't say the house was quirky...more over cluttered with tat, and in dire need of refurbishment and a lick of paint wouldn't have gone a miss. The dumped cars outside added to the general feel of the place being unloved. The kitchen was well equipped ....2 kettles/toasters ect lots of crockery/ glasses.....though everything needed washing! Smelly fridge. Lack of essential supplies you would expect when renting a property. No washing up liquid, no cleaning spray, hand soap nearly empty in all loos, no spare loo rolls, no rinse aid or salt for dish washer...both had run out, only 2 bin liners. And £30 fuel charge just for a weekend the same as the weekly charge should just be included in the price. Think there is a safety issue with the gas cooker I.e yellow flame indicating carbon monoxide!!!!!! The electric cooker didn't work properly. Having said all this had a fab weekend. The sign for entry was behind a tree!!!!

    Great property for a large family get together. The house is lovely and very homely. I've stayed in similarly priced properties with a higher standard of finish by this is more than compensated for by the available space and amazing location. The house is situated in stunning countryside right next to Symonds Yat. Within a few minutes walk you can be in seemingly remote wilderness but in a few minutes drive you can be in a well stocked shop.

    the cottage is in a beautiful location, the bed linen & towels were clean as was the upstairs accommodation on the whole, however the downstairs really does need a deep clean, a lick of paint & some TLC

    Lovely setting, querky property, which the kids loved. However the photos - like much of the mod-cons - are rather out of date. A weekend getaway should NOT require a 1-hour in-person handover on arrival. Good value for money (but why was £30 fuel charge not simply added to the rental fee?).
