The minute you walked through the front door you knew the accomodation was going to be good and that's such a relief when holidaying in the UK as you never know how much time you will need to spend there with our unpredictable weather. Well this cottage was immaculate but also cosy. The bedroom had a massive bed with lovely bed linen that smelt really fresh, plenty of wardrobe/drawers etc. The lounge had two 2 seater settees, a flat screen TV, a fire and cupboard housing numerous books mostly of walks in and around the area. The bathroom was spotless and spacious. The kitchen had a small table with 2 chairs, fridge, cooker, toaster, microwave and a welcome pack of Eccles cakes, crisps and apple juice. The owners had even left out vinegar, salt and pepper, sugar, washing up liquid, cleaning cloths, the sort of things you forget to take with you but don't think it's worth buying for the short time you're there. The outside had a small patio with 2 garden chairs and a parking space for 1 car. The owners run the local post office come general store (the only one in the village I think) and the cottage is attached to this but it is very quiet. There is a castle you can walk to and we cycled to symmonds yat along the beautiful countryside. There is one pub within walking distance which was very cosy but I thought a little on the expensive side for what you got, but there were other pubs not to far away if you didn't mind driving. We didn't get to meet the owners, although we knew we could reach them via the post office, because the cottage had everything we needed, even the heating had been adjusted so that after we'd been out all day it was lovely and warm to come home to. Couldn't fault this property the owners had thought of everything.
