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.

    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 However the photos - like much of the mod-cons - are rather out of date.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?).

    As a large group of friends (14 adults) we stayed for a weekend in November and had a wonderful time. We are all walkers and/or birdwatchers, with quite a few keen chefs, so the house was ideal for us.

    Whilst Mr Dew was an extremely nice and polite man his cottage left a lot to be desired. The picture of the outside must have been taken donkey's years ago because now there is a dilapidated porch/veranda at the front. Numerous vehicles dotted around an old micro- light just outside the front door and quite unbelievably an old push mower on the front grass which caused us concern because we had a toddler running around and he could have easily hurt himself on the blades!! Whilst very well equipped the kitchen was in a terrible condition. The en-suite room at the top of the house showed a television in the pictures on line. We noticed a sky box in the living room but when I asked Mr Dew how to use it he told me he had no idea!!!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. It is true that the picture of the farm is a bit out of date and new photos will be forwarded. The porch, which was described as dilapidated, is strongly constructed and should give no concern for its safety. I am sorry the clients found the kitchen in a terrible state. On hand over they did sign the book that it was acceptable; any complaints would have been rectified at this stage. Nearly all other clients give the kitchen cleanliness a good rating. The lawn mower, a subject of concern, has been removed although it is difficult to imagine how a 'toddler' can push a lawn mower, particularly one that is a museum piece, and get their fingers in the blades. The Housekeeper normally deals with the TV and Digi box and it is part of the hand over.

    Ideal for what we required for all our family. 14 adults and three young children all able to sit together at meal times. Plenty of plates and everything else. Would certainly recommend.
