    There was 10 family members & 3 dogs who enjoyed a beautiful long weekend at Foxcote. There was plenty of space for everyone, even little seated areas if you wanted to take yourself off for peace & quiet. The kitchen ,tho very rustic, had plenty of crockery & essentials, the dishwasher was a godsend. Beds were comfortable, clean & tidy. Views from the garden at the back were lovely, could have been even better if some of the hedging was'nt there, but it did'nt concern many of us, you had the Sun first thing in the morning until later in the day when it went round to the front & sit outside where it had a very French feel. There is a barbecue in the back garden but it had'nt been cleaned, obviously down to the people who used it last, but maybe it should have been checked. We had no faults inside the cottage other than maybe some of the curtains could have fitted over the whole of the windows better (got woken up by an early morning sunrise shining into the bedrooms), & the squeaky floorboards became a family joke. There are books/board games & jigsaws to occupy you if so needed. We were occupied with one that said there was a piece missing but we found it! Plenty to do in the area. Goodrich castle was visited by a family member who said it was very interesting, Symans Yat & Forest of Dean just 15 mins away by car. There's the Crossed Keys pub 15 min walk away with basic fayre. Owners Jill & Michael very pleasant, in fact Jill very kindly allowed us to bring an extra dog & came to see us as soon as we arrived to make sure everything was ok. all in all Foxcote is an ideal place to stay if you have a family celebration as we did, would definately return if we had any more family get togethers.

    Lovely location. Super house, apart from the noisy floorboards which sounds very picky but with three small children under 3 this did pose a problem with sleeping, as did the very light bedrooms, darker curtains or blinds would be much better. But this aside we had a super week with ages ranging from 6 months to 81 yrs in our group, the accommodation catered for all of our needs. The owners were very friendly and welcomed us on arrival.

    Really enjoyed our holiday. Plenty of space in lovely peaceful surroundings. Ideal for 11 of us with 5 children and 6 adults with ages ranging from 1-71. The dog had fun too. Owners very welcoming. Would definitely go again and recommend it to others.

    Great house for large parties with comfortable sofas and beds, beautiful countryside and views. Made to feel very welcome with numerous tours of the lambing shed which the children loved.

    11 of us ranging from 2 years of age to very much older spent a wonderful 3 night break here. We were made to feel very welcome, even had a tour of the lambing shed . The house itself was toasty and warm, loads of hot water too. All areas were well equipped. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. It was a lovely relaxing stay, in beautiful surroundings. I imagine the views from Foxcote during the warmer months are even more spectacular. Even I'm the winter there is plenty of wildlife to see and hear.This particular area is completely unspoilt. If the opportunity arose we would definitely book this lovely place for a holiday in the future.

    We had a wonderful stay. Perfect for a group and the dogs. Plenty of glasses/plates/cutlery etc Location is fine but nothing is 'on the doorstep' though this didn't bother us as we had day trips out planned. Overall a fantastic place to stay. Contact with host was excellent too. We will book again, great value for money.

    Had a lovely stay at the property . The owners are very friendly and welcoming, going through all the necessary information, and as their farm is on site, is handy for any questions. They were happy to offer advise on local places and attractions worth visiting. The location suited us perfectly as we were two families with 3 dogs, the access to the farm is great for dog walking, and the local pub ,The Cross Keys, is a pleasant 15 min stroll away and also dog friendly, with a lovely atmosphere. There is no shop within walking distance, but Ross on Wye is only a 10 min drive away with plenty of shops for all your needs. The house is very comfortable, with sofas and chairs to seat 11 people in the lounge, which is great, and has plenty of space. The dining area is attached to the kitchen which makes it a very sociable area. There are plenty of utensils, pots and pans, and crockery ,glasses etc. small point could do with a better tin opener and the hoover only appeared to function when using the attachment hose., other than that no complaints. There is an added bonus of having a larger fridge and separate freezer in the utility area. The bedrooms are very comfortable, with good quality bedding and pillows, and lovely large soft bath sheets, we had no trouble sleeping! All in all we had a lovely time and would not hesitate in recommending this property and hope to revisit in the future.

    Great holiday with family. Downsides - light bulbs blew in the bedroom and hallway and no spares (the one in the bedroom also blew the trip switch when it went). The kitchen was a bit tired and the utensils and crockery somewhat random. Otherwise OK
