My wife, parents and I stayed here for four nights in June. We had not stayed before at this B&B, as we usually use and establishment on the opposite side of the Forest of Dean. We fancied a change and more quiet and peaceful location to stay. We certainly struck gold with Prospect Cottage.
The B&B is located down an unmade track right beside the River Wye and is a 5 minute drive from Bigsweir Bridge, so its location couldn't be better. We were greeted warmly by the hosts, Lesley and Roger and made to feel right at home. We were shown the property and straight away we felt like we visiting relatives instead of a B&B. We were greeted with hot drinks and some cake and were able to observe the wonderful view of the river and the numerous birds visiting the feeders from the balcony of the house. This was a lovely feature and every morning and evening you were drawn to the balcony to take in the views.
The rooms are comfortable and well furnished and the bathrooms well equipped. There is Sky TV in the lounge which leads to the balcony and is also where you have breakfast, which is excellent (best bacon I've had in a long time!)
We all thoroughly relaxed and slept well after our long walks from the property and surrounding countryside, we will be back as soon as we can!
