“Absolutedly perfect, great base provides clenliness and comfort second to none.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We were greeted by our host Malcolm, who showed us everything we needed
to know and where the ample parking was for our two cars. The hot tub
was so relaxing after doing the usual tourist visits with the family.
Cleanliness was second to non and everything was provided to make our
stay wonderful. The welcome bottle of wine and blackcurrant vodka
treat was very welcome as were the fresh flowers placed all around the
house. We all agreed that this is one of the best holiday rentals we
have used and the area around Tintern and the valley was beautiful.
Definately a holiday stay to be recommended.

“Astounding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

I generally don't believe in top rating properties because there will usually be something that lets it down slightly, even if I don't mention it in the review. In the case of Foxes Reach I have no excuse whatsoever to give below maximum.
Everything seems to have been thought of.
There are four bedrooms, two with TV, a bathroom and a shower room. TV in each room downstairs (not that I watched any) including Sky on the main one. Internet that works and can be used throughout.
The highlight for me was the log burning stove bet the lads were more taken with the hot tub.
A fully equipped kitchen containing virtually every utensil you can think of.
There is nice private garden that, during the summer I am sure would be a great sun-trap.
To top it all the owners are so helpful, if you can't find the information about the cottage or the surrounding area in the bulging information packs you need only ask.
The surrounding area offers so much for the visitors, for me being reasonably close to Cardiff is a plus.
I could ramble on but I would suggest you stay there and find out for yourself.
A definite five star plus.

“Dog Walkers Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We just spent a lovely week (4 nights-Monday to Friday) with our two Norfolk terriers. Foxes Reach cottage is a lovely place to get away from all your stress and anxieties. The cottage is well maintained and tastefully decorated and in a great location (close to Tintern abbey). There are so many places to walk in the area and hard to chose which ones to take.

We had a very warm welcome to the cottage by Fiona. There was also a bottle of red wine and a homemade blackcurrent and vodka drink for us on arrival. The blackcurrent/vodka drink was very welcome after the 5 hour journey we had from North Yorkshire (7 hours going home). The cottage has everything you would ever need!

We recommend this wonderful cottage to anyone wanting to spend some relaxing time in the Wye Valley.
