This beautiful cottage in Symonds Yat is a delight to stay in . The hosts John and Tanya Slade made us very welcome . This cottage has a lovely king size bed , lovely crisp white bedding and large fluffy towels to wrap yourself in . Everything one needs for a holiday including the fact the hosts allowed us to use their clothes line for some washing , On the doorstep is amazing walks , canoe the Wye and a delightful boat trip . Plenty of attractions a short drive away . Highlight for me was the badgers visiting the garden in the evening encouraged by a trail of peanuts . Looking forward to returning .
