This was our second visit to the cottage in Monmouth, and it was just as enjoyable as the first time.
Unfortunately on our way down we were involved in an RTA and our car was not drivable. I contact the owners of the cottage Peter & Rita to ask if they knew of any car hire places in the area. The problem was it was Easter weekend and the majority of places had closed for the weekend!!! Anyway Peter was able to find us a car hire company in Ross on Wye, who delivered the car when we arrived and we were therefore able to carry on with our holiday. This was greatly appreciated as we would not have been able to continue with our holiday and the children would have been really disappointed.
The cottage has everything that you need for a self catering holiday and the facilities are great, both Peter & Rita are extremely helpful on what to do in the area.
On site there is an excellent restaurant called the Stone Mill, the food, service and hopsitality are excellent and I would highly recommend that you book a table when booking a cottage.
The cottage is in a fantastic location, we are keen cyclist so it was a great base for cycling. We cycled for two days out of the four days. The first route we did was Symonds Yat which is along the river and called in at the Saracens Head Pub (good ale!!!) and the second ride we did was in the Forest of Dean.
One of the days was raining so we visited the Clearwell Caves (which the girls found very interesting), and then visited The Palace Cinema to watch a movie, it was a very old fashioned cinema/theatre it was like stepping back in time.
Overall considering we'd been involved in an accident, the holiday turned out great and we had a lovely time. We'll definately be returning.
Thanks for all your help too!!!
