Fantastic cottage been ther twice now and will b back next year got everything we need fantastic place fantastic river .
Great location and great value for money. Didn't need to use the car for the whole weekend. Lovely walks straight from the house. The hand pulled ferry is a short walk away so you can explore either side of the river. Nice local pubs (especially the Saracens Head on the other bank). Generous owners for allowing the guests the use of the pool table/table tennis, darts and games. David was prompt and polite on answering any queries.
A clean, modern cottage accurately described by the owner in his listing (so can't understand how an earlier reviewer seemed to have such vastly differing expectations). There is a bit of wear and tear, but nothing too bad, which is just a reflection of it being a well-used holiday let. We had an absolutely brilliant time. I don't think I've stayed anywhere quite so beautiful in the UK. The property has amazing views over the Wye at the front and there are walks straight into the woods behind. The 2 pubs on the same side of the river (The Old Ferrie Inn and The Wye Knot) are within 15mins walk and were both friendly. Taking the rope ferry over to the nearest pub (The Saracen's Head) is great fun and the pub itself is lovely. It's a short drive to some interesting towns and sights. The garage with table tennis table and pool table is what made me book this place rather than others available in the same location - and it was a good move because we really enjoyed having an extra activity available and it was particularly handy on the one rainy afternoon that we had. I'd definitely stay there again.
The property is in a unique location, situated on a high bank looking across to East Symonds Yat. It's reached by a very narrow, long, steep road with only a few passing places, so beware if you have a big car. Also, there are quite a lot of steps to climb to get up to the property and carry your luggage. The property is clean and well equipped, the beds are cosy. No shops within walking distance so need to bring everything you need. You can walk to Ye Olde Ferrie Inn or take the hand pulled ferry across the river to the Saracens Head, best to book at weekends if you want to eat there in the evening, the journey back at 10.30 p.m. was interesting no lights at all to help us on our way!!!! There were 2 days when it wasn't running because of high water. There are good walks from the door and plenty of places to visit. We had a very good holiday.
