    Nice comfy cottage in an excellent location with lots of nearby tracks in the woods. Friendly and helpful hosts, all the appliances present including dishwasher and washing machine. Plenty of nice dvds to watch in the evenings. On the down side the dog wasn't allowed in the garden and the wi-fi signal was very bad. Had an overall very nice stay :)

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review, we hope you enjoyed a wonderful horse riding holiday. It is correct we do prefer for dogs not to go in the garden as we pride ourselves on being a family friendly cottage and therefore for hygiene reasons we like to keep that one space dog free. However we are set within 4 acres of enclosed land and direct access to bridle paths and forestry commission from the cottage, so I do hope you found plenty of walking available. With regards to the Wi-Fi, due to our beautiful rural location our broadband connectivity is restricted to that offered by the providers; however we can confirm there is Wi-Fi in the cottage and the strongest signal will be found in the living room. We do hope to welcome you back to the cottage and next time your horse would be welcome to stay too. Best Wishes.

    Perfect location for exploring the local area which is exaxtly what we had wanted. The cottage was well equipped and the owners friendly and helpful. The only downside was that we found the double bed uncomfortable.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am so pleased you had such a great holiday and it was exactly what you were looking for. There is so much to explore in the local area, it’s difficult to know what to do first. Thank you for the feedback regarding the bed, we are in fact looking into replacing the bed frame. Best Wishes.

    A lovely quiet Christmas away in a home from home. Wonderfully accommodating and welcoming hosts. The cottage has everything you would have or need at home at all at arms length. A little difficulty finding property in the dark due to sat nav diversion but once you have your bearings very easy to get to and a lovely surrounding. Would definitely stay again :)

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thanks for your review, we aim to provide a home from home feeling, so we are glad this was your experience over the Christmas period - Please do come back and visit us again soon.

    Great area. Nice modern cottage. An annex next to owners. Owners belongings taking up room in wardrobes. Felt overlooked

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking time to provide feedback – it does help us in trying to improve the service and accommodation we offer. We are genuinely disappointed that your expectations were not met. We are very pleased to be able to offer accommodation that allows people to visit and experience the ‘great area’ we are living in and this is afforded to us and our guests by the unique ‘location’ the property provides – rural outlook and feel whilst being within 5miles to major town and easy access to major routes should wider travel be required such a Gloucester, Bristol, Newport and Cardiff – notwithstanding beautiful Wales which has so much to offer. I hope the fact the property is an annexe didn’t come as a surprise as we feel this is clear in the property description and photos provided. This is of great benefit to some, especially those that may have special circumstances. Privacy is of great importance to us and we make every effort to not intrude or adversely impact guests with our family or animals, but are available should guests need advice or just want to have a friendly chat. We are disappointed that you felt overlooked too. The annexe is not overlooked by the sole neighbour nor do any of the main house windows overlook the property. We are mindful and conscious of the shared drive and garden area and are respectful of privacy in those areas. You are the first guests to comment on the wardrobe space and that there are items within. The majority of those items are for the cottage – for example DVDs and books that we rotate and offer guests if they ask. We acknowledge that a small amount of storage is lost due to boxed items which we will address with immediate effect – we hope you weren’t inconvenienced too much, and would have hoped you would have spoken directly to us to enable us to remedy any issues during your stay. People’s expectation on comfort and equipment is very personal but we make every effort to provide a high standard of fixtures and fittings and do ask guests what items are missing and what could be provided and take action accordingly. Thank you for staying at Sun Cottage and enjoying the beautiful area we live in.

    We loved Sun cottage. It is perfectly equipped with everything you could need, in a great location that is rural but close to amenities and places to go. And to add to that Lee and Emma are lovely and happy to help with anything you might need. Would definitely recommend!

    Response on behalf of the owner- Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us.

    Sun cottage is comfortable, cosy, warm and very well equipped. It is quite spacious for 2 people. Although a short drive away from shops, pubs and restaurants etc, it is situated in a lovely position with a good view of the Severn Estuary. The owners, Emma and Lee are very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. We both enjoyed a peaceful, relaxed week.

    Response on behalf of the owner- We are glad you enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing break at Sun Cottage.

    Cottage clean and modern and made us welcome. Ideal base for walkers, and near enough to visit local places of interest.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner- Thank you for your review, you are right it is a perfect base for walkers with Offas Dyke within walking distance from our front door. Glad you enjoyed your stay.
