“Perfect retreat, quiet, relaxing and great location.”

We have just come back from a great mini break. We loved the cottage and the perfect location. It was nice to not have to use the car for a few days! We walked mainly and had cosy nights in. We visited
the local pubs and enjoyed the hand ferry home.

All communication with the owner was fast and easy, nothing was to much trouble. I'm sure we will be back in 2013.

“Relaxing, enjoyable holiday beautiful scenery on your doorstep”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful week in Wye Gate cottage, It is situated in a beautiful spot with amazing views. It perfectly catered for our families needs with a large fridge freezer, as with three boys it is too expensive to eat out very often. There are beautiful walks right on your doorstep, it is also within easy reach of the beautiful cities of Hereford and Gloucester so there is plenty to keep everyone amused. Laura was really helpful and friendly and the lovely touches around the cottage made us feel at home. We would highly recommend this cottage.

“Lovely cottage in stunning location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful weekend in Wye Gate Cottage. The cottage is well appointed and very comfortable. It is located in a truly stunning position over looking the river Wye and there is plenty to do and see locally. Great pub called The Saracens across the river...hail the hand boat to get across - great food and atmosphere and I would recommend a pint or two of Butty Bach, a local ale which is yummy! Don't forget to take a torch out with you if you plan to get back late! Laura, the owner, could not have done more to make us feel welcome - providing info and suggesting local attractions to see and visit. I would definitely return!

“Lovely little cottage in beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a stay in this lovely little cottage in Symonds Yat. The location is beautiful and very peaceful with stunning views accross the river and valley. The cottage itself is lovely with everything you need for your stay and some lovely homely touches. The hand pulled Ferry about 5 minutes walk away is an experience and takes you directly across the Wye to one of the local pubs - The Saracens Head, where we had a lovely dinner and excellent service. There are several places to eat nearby and we did the Sunday night Quiz at the Wye Knot Inn, where everyone was very friendly. The canoe and Kayak hire are within easy walking distance and you have to experience the walk across Biblins bridge which will test your nerve! Wonderful for a peaceful break to wind down but not all walking and isolation, we also came across a local camp and caravan site which seemed to have a lively club house and also a fun fair - although we didnt experience it ourselves I'm sure if you have young children its probably worth a visit. The walking is great and the view from Symonds Yat Rock itself reminded me of a painting - very very beautiful. We would definitely stay there again.

“Lovely week in a beautiful part of the country.”

We have just returned from a cracking holiday at Wye Gate Cottage. The cottage is in a perfect location for both family holidays and I would imagine couples looking for a picturesque place with lots going on. We hardly needed our car during our stay.

The cottage itself is clean with good facilities and Laura and Raf are very helpful and kind hosts. The twin room was ideal for our two boys and the master bedroom big enough for our needs with a comfortable bed for us parents. Lovely views from the master bedroom too.
The kitchen was well kitted out with everything we needed. and a large enough fridge for our weeks worth of shopping.

I would thoroughly recommend the place to anybody who loves the countryside and enjoys nice walks, nice pubs, great beer, watching the world go by on the river, birds, canoeing, fishing, cycling and general exploring.
